    I need one for big coppernose for sure. Wish it had an old-school cork handle though.

    JDM trout rods have the cork but Iím not sure you would be happy with a very soft trout rod catching copper nose.

    I've submitted warranty claims for years now (probably 8 years for tenkara rods and 2 years for spinning/baitcasting) and the manufacturer has never refused to honor the warranty. I am sure they know that warranty claims are almost always operator error (including the error of thinking rods "ought to be" able to do things they weren't designed to do). They get honored anyway. However, the manufacturer's financial exposure is limited because the warranty is one-year rather than lifetime, and can be used only once.

    Well pulled the trigger on the Olympic '18 CORTO GCRTS-6102L-HS that Alpha had reviewed earlier as I was looking for a rod that I thought would make a worthy home for the Diawa Exist reel I picked up during the black Friday sales.

    This will probably be my last JDM purchase for a while as I have several new JDM toys to test out and play with this coming spring.

    Want to thank Alpha for the what he does as far as helping to educate us on this equipment here in a market where it is not well known or advertised very much.

    I also want to curse him as his salesmanship has helped lighten my wallet significantly as well! JUST KIDDING!

    Looking forward to the new rods arrival though.

    Thanks for the comment. Congrats......that will be one sweet setup. You know when I started the channel on YouTube I just wanted to help one guy who may go down that road. While it is a very small channel I never dreamed I would help out the number of people who wanted some JDM gear. Many from right here on crappie.com. It seems each week there are several now who contact me. I think you will really like the Corto. Graphiteleader really makes a fantastic rod. I used mine today to try and catch some white bass but the fish did not cooperate. I got 2 hits and stuck both fish.....one a 6 pound drum and the other about a 5 inch white bass. What amazes me about the rod....sensitivity not withstanding....is the fact the drum put a nice parabolic bend in the rod...yet so did the 5 inch fish. Amazing a rod that rigid can do that.

    Regards

    Congratulations on the new rod. I have been field testing mine at the local creeks and fishing off the bank in the afternoons. Alphahawkís statement about not wanting to put the rod down is correct. He may have gotten that from the California Bluegill guru but nonetheless my St Croix has not been off the rack since. Lightweight and Sensitive are the two words that can describe the JDM rods, but feeling the head shake and tail thrust during the fight of a fish that is 4-9in long is what impresses me. The bigger fish on these rods still worry me with the drag and line capabilities, something that I am sure will come with practice and seat time. When that rod comes in letís see a picture of the setup, at a little over 200g it should be a dream to fish with.

    Triple Cross TCX-S632AJI

    What kind of action will this rod have?

    I'll be casting 1/80 to 1/16 oz jig heads with either 2 or 4# line.

    It is a very rigid rod with extra fast action....sensitivity off the charts. If you have never picked up an Ajing rod it is like nothing at all you will find here in the USA. With the solid tip great for casting light jigs.....micro plastics. Casting a 1/80 with that rod would be a stretch...bottom rating is 1/48.....top end is 1/3 ounce...but I wouldnít want to use 1/3 with it. The tip on that rod will be around 7/10 of a millimeter in diameter. A great little rod in my opinion.

    I'll probably use 1/32 oz mostly this year.
