Until now, rod handle length could not be user-adjusted. However, with the introduction of MAHS (Megabass Adjustable Handling System), each model in the VALKYRIE fishing rod series can be adjusted to the optimal handle length for each situation and application. This customization has dramatically increased rod controllability, casting performance, and user comfort. The shaft production utilizes a unique manufacturing method inspired by traditional Japanese AYORI kimono weaving, combining micro fiberglass and carbon fiber to create strong, braided fibers. To accentuate this visually stunning pattern, the rod is finished with a see-through coating.
