Strictly focused on the highest-possible landing percentage with treble-hook baits, the redesigned OROCHI XX SWINGFIRE features a rebalanced glass/carbon mixture and improved backbone. By extending the blank’s graphite further up the blank, the SWINGFIRE gains new muscle in its midsection. As a result, SWINGFIRE now delivers more powerful hooksets, greater castability, distance and control throughout the fight.
The traditional forgiveness of glass is preserved in the upper-mid and tip section, providing the perfect amount of “give” to absorb chasing bites and last-ditch surges at the boat. However, the truly remarkable characteristic of the SWINGFIRE is not that it has the unique characteristics of both graphite and glass—it is the seamlessness with which these very different materials have been combined. SWINGFIRE offers the unique sensitivity and power of graphite with the forgiveness of glass, presenting an invaluable cranking tool that smoothly loads from one end to the other.
Unlike pure graphite models, hybrid and traditional glass rods often require a roll-cast motion instead of overhead or sidearm casts. However, the new SWINGFIRE casts more like a traditional graphite rod if you allow it to fully load, adding range to cast motions—and distance. Further, the SWINGFIRE’s increased sensitivity enables quick detection of structure, bottom composition and subtle changes to lure action.
