Brian Kimata of Brian's Fishing Supply Designed a Pair of Popping/Plugging Rods!

A few years ago Okuma asked Brian Kimata to design an all purpose Popping Rod that could be used on a boat to a yak & the shoreline. This is the MH, a H was also designed. Quality components were used in it's construction. The end product is the only plugging/popping rod i own that i can run all my swivels through.

In the past Brian was asked to help Shimano & Penn on some of their projects as well. At the time i was with JRA that represented Okuma in most of the USA. But Okuma's Senior Marketing Specialist Dave Brown sent me a few rods to try out. I was blown away when the box arrived. I quickly learned that not only was this a popping/plugging rod, it was also a dunking & jigging rod as well (had an 18in rear grip).

Anglers loved this rod! From the boat to the shoreline, the rod was an instant success. The fact that i could keep my swivels tied in was a major bonus! Used an Okuma Cedros 8K Spinner w/50lb Eminent Braid by Soft Steel. After bombing my 2-1/3oz Hooker Stick Bait by FishLab all morning i was amazed my arm & shoulder was ok. I'm not going to post this until tomorrow morning. We'll see if i'm still ok. Lol!

it goes pop pop

"..The pleasantist angling is to see the fish
Cut with her golden oars the silver stream,
And greedily devour the treacherous bait.
