Are Hiro available in this country any more or is it just old stock still hanging round? I heard there is a shop in Devon or Cornwall that are distributing this but they are giving it up, I dont know if its true or not though?
Thats interesting Si cheers. Things afoot in the company thats why I ask.My local tackle shop is able to get their kit.
I've never used their beach gear, but a few of my mates use it, and really rate some of their rods - only negative is that some of the rods look a little 'bling' and are not cheap - they are up against some well known safer looking bets at times (Greys, Century, Daiwa, etc . . . .). I had my eye on one of their long-rods with a quiver-tip - very well suited to match fishing.Thats interesting Si cheers. Things afoot in the company thats why I ask.
On the subject of Hiro do you guys think if their gear was pushed a bit better there could be a place for it in the UK? Or should we be trying to gety our more home brand up to scrath? Is their beach gear rated?
Nice one mate! I like the unconditional lifetime warranty on it, that would probs sway it for meI have a Daiwa Exceler which I use for all of my bass fishing it is 10ft and it seems to work the lures well. When I bought this rod the guy in the shop said it was a salmon rod so this could be the rod you are after. I think i paid somewhere between £75 and £100 for it. I have never used any purpose built bass rods like the tenryu's etc. so dont know how they compare but to me it feels nice when working the lures. There is a link below to give you more info on it hope this helps.
Tried to get you the link off the daiwa website but it isn't on any more so they may have stopped making them.
You may find them cheaper than in the link if you shop about too.
