The long-awaited slow-jigging rod from Storm has finally arrived. The new Gomoku Adajo is designed to work slow-style jigs easily with each pitch or crank. The Gomoku Adajo is built on a 30 & 40 ton blend graphite blank with a slow taper for optimal recoil when working slow jigs up to 300 grams (PE3 model). Jigging upstrokes are less taxing on the angler and the optimal recoil allows for a greater tension ‘free-fall’ on the drop to bring out the slow jig’s optimal fluttering action.

When the Storm Gomoku Erito PE0.8-1.5 jigging rod was launched back in 2012, it created a brand new craze among light jiggers for whippy rods with white blanks and colourful EVA grips. Fast forward four years ahead and Storm Southeast Asia brings us a brand new Gomoku Erito jigging rod.

STORM GOMOKU 2015 ERITO BESPOKE LIMITED EDITIONMore than just a well-deserved facelift, the new Gomoku Erito Bespoke Limited Edition jigging rod is actually a different rod altogether from its predecessor. This lightweight jigstick features Fuji SiC guides, compared to Fuji Alconite on the previous version, for better heat dissipation and Fuji VSS (spinning) and TCS (baitcast) reel seats. But the main difference between the two Eritos lies in the blank.

The 2015 Gomoku Erito Bespoke Limited Edition (sometimes also called the ‘Black Erito’ for obvious reasons) features a 40-ton graphite blank that is lighter, stronger and has a better recoil compared to the previous generation Gomoku Erito. The sensitive, yet powerful blank amplifies every vibration from jig to strike.

Despite its slim looks, the ‘Black Erito’ is able to quickly subdue medium to large fish without much effort. We’d actually rate it a notch stronger than the previous Gomoku Erito PE0.8-1.5. We reckon it’s best to ease off the drag a little when you’re fighting fish with fragile mouth cavities to prevent hooks being pulled or lips torn.

Will the new 6ft Gomoku Erito Bespoke Limited PE1.5 replace the ‘White Erito’ in the Storm Gomoku jigging rod line up? We don’t think so. For fans of whippy tips and contrasty rod bends, the ‘White Erito’ will continue to please, while for folks who prefer a sleeker, more powerful and ‘macho-looking’, black coloured rod, the Erito Bespoke Limited will deliver. Available  in both spinning and baitcasting versions.

Model: ERS601MR (Spin) / ERC601MR (Cast)
Length: 6’0″
Line Rating: Max PE1.5
Max Jig Weight: 100g

The tagline says it all – “Heavy Cover and Big Bait Weapon”.

The new Storm Monstar rods are designed primarily for quickly overwhelming big fish. An extremely lightweight yet responsive blank reinforced with Magnum+ Construction technology wrap on the butt section gives this rod plenty of stopping power. Each rod features Fuji Alconite guides and large, lightweight, hi-density EVA grips for better comfort and added leverage when battling monster fish.

The Storm Shore-X is designed as a versatile shore-casting instrument for the land-based angler. The extra-fast taper of the Shore-X is perfect for punching out lures, flicking micro jigs and even working squid jigs (Egi) while the cross carbon wrap on the butt section offers some decent stopping power should a larger fish come by. The Shore-X is equipped with Fuji KR Concept micro guides to keep the rod lightweight while maximizing the performance of the rod blank. Whether its fishing off the rocks, shorelines, jetties or even commercial barramundi ponds, the Storm Shore-X gets you closer to where the fish are from shore.

Storm Trickster

After the debut of the entry-level Storm Discovery earlier this year, Storm Southeast Asia yet again introduces a new lure casting rod in August that sits one class above the Discovery. The Storm Trickster is primarily designed for aggressive fishing – extra fast taper for quick, accurate casts and a very strong butt section to wrestle fish out of snaggy terrain. Perfect for big Toman and Mangrove Jacks.

Storm Trickster

The Storm Trickster features hybrid micro guides that sit very close to the rod blank to optimize blank performance as well as minimize twisting torque. Ultra hard EVA grips transmit vibrations more effectively, increasing sensitivity. Ergonomically designed reel seats ensure comfortable palming and facilitate easy casting all day without fatigue.

Looking for a great performance rod at a truly affordable price? Check out the Storm Trickster at your local Rapala or Storm dealer. Available in both spinning and casting versions. Be sure to watch the video below too!
