A revolutionary concept of a diving pencil
Rough Trail Aomasa was put to life through the integration of DUO’s world class injection molding technology and the know-how from the most respected local anglers Jerremy Akiyama (Amakusa) and Masashi Matsumoto (Hirado).Its weight settings, wire-through design, interior rib structure and its unique body design rivals or surpasses those wood body models with its sharp action, controlability and body strength. This lure can easily be controlled to stage its “diving”, “S-curve” and “sliding” action by novice ~ expert anglers in various field conditions.
Ladder rib structure
By integrating a ladder like rib structure in the interior, we have managed to create a strong body without sacrificing its lightness for greater maneuverability and response.
Stainless-steel pin to secure the wire
We have inserted 3 different sized stainless-steel pins to secure the wire which runs through the body. This prevents the wire from coming loose, while reducing the weight by trimming the unnecessary meat off the body.
Wire inserted molded weight
By inserting the wire when forming the weight, we were able to create a large size injection pencil type lure with its weight distribution predominantly at the tail end. The application for design registration is currently being processed.
Out & Through wire structure
By running the wire through the outer side of the body, we were able to further reduce the plastic usually required around the wire, while increasing the air chamber for more buoyancy. PAT
