Shimano got it right with that two-tone paint. Sexier than the current model.

It also matches up perfect with a GLX :big grin:

Wanted a glorious ever since the introductory thread in the jdm section. Said I'd never buy one. I just had to rethink the no warranty deal and realize I had never had a blank fail. I also had the busiest year of my life...new job and I just finished harvesting my largest grow to date. Here is the trunk of my jack herer tree...the biggest cannabis plant I've ever grown....or seen.

Rods are 7'm xc, 6'10"m mighty stroke, 6'11" mh hyper approach, and 7-4" mh biwako. Ordered 2 from ebay (shimreels), then 2 from jdm tackle haven. Tackle haven is by far the cheapest place to buy jdm rods I found out...and it's not even close. Shipping was also only $75 for both rods from haven, shipped in the same tube.

Dope! Pun intended? :lol:. I've got the hyper approach, it's an awesome rod. I'm in the market for a PG BFS rod and I've been looking at jdm tackle heaven, looks to be my cheapest option if I can't source a lightly used one stateside. I'd also be interesting to hear your take on the XC too when you get a chance to use it.
