New Majorcraft Crostage Offshore Rod

Japanese rod maker Majorcraft has just introduced a new offshore rod. Good news is that this rod is part of the "entry-level" Crostage series which is an excellent quality rod at an affordable price. The new rod is specific for offshore applications but I can think that you can use them from the shore too. There are three models in the lineup. It goes from a 7.1 foot to a 8.3foot Heavy "tuna" rod.
Price is between 140.000 and 180.000 Yen.

The models:
710 MH : This is a 7.1 foot  25-80g. rod. Ideal for small sized amberjack and Dorados.
80H: 8 foot and  100g. max casting. This is already an heavy duty rod. Good for amberjack and tunas
83HH: 8.3 ft. for 120g max casting. This is a pure "tuna rod".

The rods come with Fuji K Guides.

I think this is a good entry level rod. Worth keeping an eye on them.
