Many anglers who fished the first-generation EXTREME MISSION TYPE: F discovered a unique blank that produced bombing casts and excelled with treble-hook search baits like the Vibration-X Ultra and Dog-X Diamante. The next-generation OROCHI XX EMTF builds upon this performance category, strengthening the bottom third of the blank for greater casting distance and fish-stopping power, while preserving the supple bend required to keep trebles securely buried throughout grueling, long-distance fights.
Additionally, the EMTF exhibits a crisper feel, reducing the blank oscillation and reverberation often felt between rod actions (jerks, pops, etc). With a shorter rod this may not be noticeable, but with EMTF’s 7’5” length so often employed for techniques that require rod work to impart action, a tighter blank offers greater control, requires less effort, and a creates a more direct connection between angler and lure.
