More Rods From Major Craft: EMS-X and Fine Tail

It is 2013 and Major Craft has started to introduce more rods as usual. There are two very brand new rods in the Japanese manufacturer 2013 catalog. One is the EMS-X which has a very cool name. The other one is the Fine Tail.

What to say about the rods?
The EMS-X is a bass fishing rod available both spinning and casting models. The Fine Tail is a trout rod for stream fishing. Those are mid-high level rods with prices in the 15.000-25.000 Yen. High quality KR guides and nice looking blanks are standard.
Just have a look and wait for the first official photo and some cool video!
