I’m thinking that’s basically the Steez compile x 7’1” heavy that’s been available domestically here for a few years now. There’s a review on it in the archive. I had a few of them at one time but I’m down to one now. The overall opinion seemed to be that while very good looking and light the sensitivity wasn’t really on par with rods in that high price point. Their reel seat for instance offers no contact with the blank.

I have the Compile x and it is a very sensitive rod. If the Harrier is as good or better I wouldn't hesitate in getting one myself.It took a little getting used to on how the rod performed and exactly what bait and weight to use as I think some may have not done.
I have a Steez A on the rod but I may get a Zillion HD on it to see how the rod performs with a slightly heavier reel.

It's the same rod.. Only difference is the harrier name on the jdm rod.
There's a newer model too, slightly improved blank, same reel seat as the zillion rods.

I have one, the newer harrier. The rod is very light and sensitive. I prefer the zaion seat over air beam for bottom contact application.

The Harrier continued and breaking new ground bass of the Japan style. Realize the honed Harrier SVF COMPILE-X, reborn, referred to as "ultimate" appropriate sensitivity. Sticky feeling of ultra-sensitive metal hooking sense of contradictory, evolved from one designed to juggle two and the Harrier. Even small Atari tell even under severe circumstances and will never miss a bartender performance sensitivity. New ground from the Harrier is made possible, I want to feel.

I've used the compile-x, its a sick rod. The taper of the rod is perfect for bottom contact in my opinion. The tip is strong enough to snap baits off weeds and get a solid hookset. When you hook a fish you can rock it into the middle of the rod to keep it pinned, it also has enough power in the last section of the rod to move big fish. I would say the drawback is it lacks elite sensitivity. Its no slouch but I would say my super destroyer, fmj, and glx bcr803 out rank it in sensitivity. (Haven't tried an NRX yet)
