As the snowflakes drops outside the window here in Scandinavia, one might conclude that testing new tackle is a freezing, cold experience. Well, let’s get it straight: We don’t feel a bit sorry for Kinetic Test Team member Frederik ”Fredstar” Hansen, who was test fishing a new design on a edge rod last week…
Our lack of empathy is based on the fact that he was test fishing a prototype of a new Edge speedjigging rod, while enjoying his holyday somewhere at the Caribbean coastline in Mexico. The rod proved to perform really well as Fredrik tested it on a 12 kg barracuda and a 17 kg amberjack.
Another interesting thing about the catch is the fact that the barracuda took one of the new Crazy Daisy jigs from Magic Minnow. The color of the jig was a “action sample” color we use when tank testing prototypes. This color will not be part of the final production, but at least we now have proof that it works in really big test tank – the Caribbean Ocean!
