Boundless Jigger is a member of our Boat Jigging Game rod series. Designed for targeting Amberjack, Hiramasa, YellowTail and most migratory fishes. In the world of Boat Jigging Game today, one-piece construction and good parabolic action with tuned power output are anglers most wanted designs. The name "Boundless Jigger" is a series designed for advanced jig fishing anglers, meaning that they can go fishing anywhere in the world without boundary and with no target limitation.
Today's Jig Fishing anglers can demand much more from their rods than in the past. Lighter, better rebound, narrower rod body and thicker inner walls are major development objectives. Besides all the above requirements, the development of our one-piece jigging rod series also aimed to achieve better sensitivity and feedback from the front section of rod when performing jigging actions. Sufficient recovery can save the angler a lot of energy in the jigging process and at the same time the tip section should provide information about the lure's action. Clearer information helps the anglers to control the force, range and timing to lift the jig and get a better chance when the lure is being attacked. It is necessary to develop a specialised 2-step rod blank with sensitive tip section and mid-sections that offer greater lift and recovery over the totally parabolic action. Such rod blanks can only be made by materials combining new types of carbon fibre structures. With the improved qualities of toughness and durability, the latest rod blank inner wall is thicker and almost 30% lighter than those in the past. These new rod blanks are state of the art products from famous Japanese factories and 100% made in Japan.
Besides the rod blanks produced by famous Japan factories, we are honoured to cooperate with a renowned professional workshop in the industry to assemble our rods entirely in Japan. Owner of this workshop is a veteran custom rods maker with experience in managing production for big brand names, every tiny detail is well handled to produce our rods like art pieces. Specially formulated thick lacquer is evenly coated to improve toughness and durability which ensures our hand-made lure rod series satisfying high specifications and becoming powerful weapons for expert anglers to pursue their dreams.
The R&D of Boundless Jigger series started in 2019. In April of that year we went to Kyushu Genkai-nada, Tsushima, Sichiri area to test "BJ 59/3M" and "BJ 58/4MH" with Hiramasa and YellowTail as our primary targets. In those tests, the prototype rod blanks performed quite well under strong currents and they gave us good confidence in fighting. Mid-section recovery and the parabolic action already met 95% of our requirements and got Hiramasa up to 12kg, the tip section of "BJ 58/4MH" seemed lacking clear feedback on lure operations. Later we tested the improved "BJ 58/4MH" in oil rig areas of South China Sea, the new one gave faster reaction and higher sensitivity, we finished the tests getting Amberjacks from 12 to 15 kg with agreeable results.
The latest model "BJ 57/5H" is designed for big size Amberjack, YellowFin Tuna kind of fishes. For this objective we went to the North Carolina OBX area in March of 2020 to test this model. During the tests we got YellowFin Tunas around 10kg and accidentally hooked a 80kg grade BlueFin Tuna. Although we understand that it's nearly impossible to get such big fish with #5 PE and 120lb leader, it's a chance to feel the reaction force of this new rod blank and the one-piece construction gave a parabolic curve over 95 points. We are looking forward to more tests in New Jersey, please stay tuned for new updates. With test data that prove the efficiency and durability of these new rod blanks, currently three members of the Boundless Jigger family with different power levels have been launched. They are the best among our Boat Game Jigging series and more developments for different fishing situations are coming!
