Recently, I got to try out my Mizuchi on a small, overgrown waterway. It did everything it promised and is now my second favourite rod ever.
It is a great rod. I love the zoom feature and it’s very tough. The two things that stand out that I don’t like is the collapsed length is really long and the Lilian quality seems poor. Those are nit picky though as it is an amazing rod especially given the cost.
Thanks for the feedback. I have narrowed down my next small stream rod to either the Muzuchi or Esoteric 206-245cm rod.
Also, how is the casting at the shortest length?
I was casting a dry-dropper combo, and the dropper had a 2.0mm tungsten bead. due to the branches and brush, I could only do bow&arrow casting at 8 foot. It was very accurate.
