When it comes to angler names for JDM bass addicts, especially those with a leaning towards the Daiwa side of things, there’s no bigger than name than Namiki.
The man behind the OSP lure brand and the driving force behind the famous Steez line of rods and reels, the man they called Namiki (aka Machinegun) literally put his name on a reel this time last year.
For those that haven’t seen it take a look at the Steez Namiki Limited.
I was fortunate enough to fish with the new Daiwa Exist last November and they are the bomb. Daiwa’s flagship light tackle spin reel just got better, and from what I hear they’re going to be cheaper.
I will have a review to share once the reel gets released at the JP shows at the end of the month.
