Major Craft N-ONE

Post by Knotty » Thu Aug 29, 2019 7:45 am

Had to replace the tip top guides on my two inexpensive UL spin rods (Daiwa Presso and Spinmatic). Installed new guides but felt that was reason enough to shop for a replacement rod. I've been very happy with my two ajing rods, a Kuying 2 piece and a Major Craft 4 piece travel rod, both 7'6". I like the solid tips, the broad lure weight range and the backbone ajing rods seem to have but I wanted something shorter for bank and stream fishing. Kuying didn't have any shorter ajing rods. Tsurinoya did but I'm still on the fence with that brand.

Major Craft has a good reputation as one of the more reasonably priced, high quality, JDM brands and it turned out they had ajing rods down to 5'6". I settled on the 6'4" NSL-S642-AJI for around $200 from Japan. It's hard to research JDM gear but I found a review of a different N-One where the writer questioned Major Craft's marketing decision with the N-One line because it was much less expensive than their Truzer but came close in performance. That's all I needed to read. Can't wait until it arrives!

Anyone else fishing an N-One?
