makes sense. been pushing the trevally rods and jigs for some time. after a lengthly video with jose wejebe from "spanish fly" tv show, the jigging art took off like gangbusters in southeast coast.lots of surfcasting horror stories from that braid (not me though) jigging is where it excells and hopefully it will be less expensive (but somehow i think after they are through beefing it up and marketing it with ads and sheeot it will cost more)

Not to mention they are seeing the market share Daiwa is grabbing with their self branded braids ( especially with their dyed jigging braid and the price point they sell at).

Without a doubt it will cost more with $himano's name on it.

Whatever name they stick on it's trash and I won't touch it.
It's been years and I'm still stinging from the mystery break offs that cost me some sweet custom wood
