Å jobbe med fiskeutstyr betyr at man hele tiden må ligge et år i forkant.
Mye av grunnen til det, er at vi må få testet alt vi eventuelt tilbyr butikkene. Og skal man få testet skikkelig så er det nesten så man må bruke en hel sesong.
Og ikke minst bruke gode sportsfiskere som er spesialister på det området produktet skal brukes. Og slike ting tar tid. Som jeg har skrevet før f.eks om Eastfield og Renz-Stein, små skala produsenter har ikke råd til å gjøre feil. Det samme gjelder pikewallisfriluftsliv, vi kan ikke trå feil ut mot butikk. Vi må finne feilene før det.
Og det å prøve å selge inn noe man ikke vet nok om er heller ingen god sak. I andre større firmaer så har man folk som utvikler og tester og jobber 100% med det, og når selgeren får det så er det reday to go. Slik er det ikke med oss mindre, vi må gå hele vegen selv.
Stenger er utrolig vanskelig, men skulle man lykkes så er det kjempe stas. Nå har jeg tatt inn 7 stenger fra Favorite som vi skal teste igjennom 2018. Skulle man finne et par gode stenger ut av de sju så vil jeg være fornøyd.
Har gjort et utvalg av haspelstenger fra det billige til de som vil bikke 2000,- ut.
Har også tatt med en stang for multi sneller. I USA så brukes det utrolig mye, men i Norge pr. i dag så er ikke det så mye brukt når vi snakker vekter opp til rundt 30gram.
FAV NEO BREEZE 862MH 2,6m 15-50g
These are premium class rods which leave behind their analogs in the same price category. During the production of these rods, the requirements set forth by the fishermen catering for local fishing conditions were taken into consideration. These elegant and delicate rods have an impressive power margin which allows for catching even big predatory fish.
Fast and sensitive rods designed mainly for bottom fishing with soft bait and jig head. High modulus blanks allow for enough sensitivity to control the bottom and enough stiffness to make active lure animation. Its powerful rods are mainly suitable for pike and zander fishing, but also useful for salmon and big trout fishing with metal lures. In saltwater, it’s best for seabass fishing with metal vibrations and light jigs.
FAV VARITA CASTING 702MH 9-28g
This series of short rods was designed primarily for boat fishing. The combination of the special geometry of the blank and multiple layers of carbon fiber with different modularity allowed us to create a rod which harmoniously combines high sensitivity, has relatively low weight and high strength. The specifications of this series equally meet the requirements of both jig fishing and twitching of minnow lures. Varita rods have fast action; the rod tip is rather informative when used in jig fishing. But, at the same time, Varita rods aren’t “circle-shaped” which contributes to their excellent casting qualities. Powerful and thick butt can easily cope with a big fish and force the retrieving in harsh conditions. Varita has been specifically tested in bass fishing. The rod is designed primarily for pike and zander fishing performed from a boat in vast reservoirs and large rivers as well as pike fishing performed from a bank of a small river with whole bunch of structures in them. Varitais equipped with the most modern fittings: Fuji KL-H guides which are company’s innovation of 2012, they are placed according to the KR-concept and the skeletal Fuji reel seat, which provides maximum access to the blank and increases sensitivity. In a word this rod is dedicated to those who love reliability, functionality and “indestructibility” of American spinning rods.
SENTINEL SNS832M 2.51M 7-28G
A series of universal rods. Primarily, Sentinel rods are designed for hard lure fishing. They are wonderful when using minnow type lures as well as when using crankbaits. Sentinel blanks have a moderately fast action, which easy to cast hard baits and shows good performance when fighting with a fish, at the same time they’re stiff enough to perform a twitching technique. The rod is equipped with Fuji K-guides, which prevent soft PE line from wrapping. Even though the rods are to be mainly used with hard lures, they can be used to jig with soft baits as well due to the high sensitivity of the blank.
FAV BLUE BIRD BB632L-S1.92M3-12G
Not very long ago high-end finesse rods with a solid tip, were presented only by elite Japanese brands. Now this obstacle was eliminated by the Blue Bird series. These rods despite being of low price, are definitely not a compromise. This is a truly high-quality, very sensitive tackle which allows casting small soft baits for a long distance. It’s equipped with a comfortable split handle, tiny guides on the top which decrease the inertia of blank and increases sensitivity. Additionally, the top guide wrappings painted white which can easily be seen from any background. Put on a light reel and you have the perfect instrument which isn’t any worse than its brand analogs. Originally meant for saltwater rock fishing, these rods also suitable for freshwater fishing in a finesse style for perch.
Four pieces travel version of Blue Bird rod. Equipped with a compact hard case that is suitable for use as lone airplane baggage, as well as easy packing to the main luggage. We tried to make the most universal rod which includes two tips: one is solid and one is tubular, so the rod is suitable for very different styles of fishing: with soft lures as well as hard lures.
X1-802M 2.44 Medium 7 – 21gr Ex-Fast
X1-902MH 2.74 Medium Heavy 10 – 35 gr Ex-Fast
The functional series of X1 rods for the most demanding fishermen, for those who value above all high quality of the rod and its reliability. Fast, light and highly sensitive rod blank isn’t worse than its more expensive analogues. Moreover, these blanks are reinforced with the application of prepregs with multi-directional fibres and special carbon winding in its butt section. The rod is developed, first of all, for twitching and jig fishing, though of course, you can use it also for classic spoons and spinners.
Simple design elements allowed to make the rod of a rather reasonable price. Though it is simple but the handle is ergonomic enough and has a comfortable griff, and modern guides are located in accordance with the KR-conception.
Favorite New Spirit NSP712M
NSP 712M 2.16 Medium 9 – 28gram Moderate Fast
New Spirit – the comeback of a popular model. The model range and blank are renewed. New Spirit rods are mostly short multi-purpose boat spinnings good for catching pike and perch, using a soft baits as well as twitching with hard lures. The fans of American style bass rods will surely enjoy the stiff blank. Along with this, the conicity of the blank is not big which is a very positive moment during the fight with fish.
Har også valgt å ta inn et par sneller. Det var to ting som gjorde at jeg falt for disse.
Fargen og dybden på spolen. 2000 snelle tenkte jeg til lettere fiske og 4000 snella til tyngre fiske. Men med sneller så kommer det et ansvar og det er reservedeler og lignende så det er liksom ikke bae å selge inn uten at man har ting på stelle bakover.
