So...the Frogley's newsletter landed on my email this arvo...almost measured a 9 on the richter scale with the announcement that Samurai have released a couple swimbait models in their 'Refraction' range of baitcasters. https://products.samurairods.com.au/products/category/LDHWIMGY-refraction As far as I know this is the first swimbait models made by Samurai. As far as I can tell...they will be expensive! I have seen a lot of Samurai rod models which do not carry casting weight recommendations...these are different. Samurai RF Swim Bait 8'3, BC, 20-50lb, 100-500g Samurai RF Swim Bait 7'6, BC, 16-40lb, 10-200g A maximum cast weight of 500 grams for the heavy model. I have no idea what is out there in swimbait rod world but for the ones I have seen locally, this leaves them for dead!!!! After all, Carl Jocumson did mention at the 'Codference' that lures were getting bigger and bigger! You could throw one of them large Rapala display lures with this bad boy rod! Now you have to excuse me as I need to start working out! cheers Team Bender Where will it end?
