From Mukai Fishing, one of Japan’s premier trout brands, the Muaki Air-Stick + (Plus) Bait is a bait finesse baitcasting model designed for Area Trout fishing enthusiasts.
Constructed from a high-quality carbon blend (96% Carbon/4% Fiberglass), the Air-Stick + (Plus) Bait is a versatile model designed for various hard bait and spoon applications. The butt of the blank is reinforced by a multi-axial carbon layering process which adds strength and the low-end power needed to maintain control over aggressive fish. The soft tip smoothly transitions into a supple mid-section, perfect for moving baits, as it allows the fish to take the lure more easily while absorbing the shock of the bite and cushioning the fight to reduce dropped hooks. By loading up easily on the backcast, Air-Stick + (Plus) Bait is rated for lures down to 1g (1/32oz), allowing anglers to approach with absolute finesse when necessary.
Equipped with high-quality Fuji guides and Fuji Alconite guide rings, Air-Stick + (Plus) Bait offers a smooth and sensitive angling experience. The full-grip cork handle is comfortable and features a small EVA butt cap for added durability. The faux wood reel seat offers a classic look while being lightweight and offering the durability expected from a modern rod. The combination of black and gold trimmings, including the trigger, reel collar, and guide threads, provides a classy display that pairs well with round profile bait finesse reels.
