Please review it and post up your thoughts. That is a lot of cash for an off the shelf rod. I hope it is a killer performer for you!

No. The lure and line ratings were not listed. Pretty much a shot in the dark.

Damn that looks real sexy, but i wonder why they decide to build it in Japan rather than USA or another country.

Because made in japan=awesome. :D
(And also- the archangel is identical to the diako droog rod- which leads me to believe diako made/collaborated on the rod, in Japan).

I wonder if that 7'5 and 8ft are one piece...

Looking forward to the lure ratings.

edit: the 6'11 is rated at 1/4-5/8oz. That's the only one I can make out. (The pic is in the 8ft heavy rod photos).

Whoa dude...good eye. They do look identical to the Droog. I figured one of the big Japanese names produced it, and it looks like it may be Daiko. Looks like you started a rumor ;)
