Videos of the new Daiwa EXPERT Seiryū ban'nō (all purpose) rod

In another forum thread I posted a link to the new Daiwa EXPERT Seiryū rod. That is being introduced this month.

This post is mostly to add links to Daiwa videos of the rod being used for different fishing methods. The longest rod version is 5.5m in length, has a longer grip for two handed casting.

Daiwa is not listing it under their Tenkara subgroup. Just under the Keiryū ・ Genryū group.
Daiwa are calling it an ‟大人の遊び竿” [Adult play rod] and 万能竿 [ ban’nō sao, All-purpose rod] For fishing from small streams to sea fishing. Kebari or bait fishing.

It is for fly fishing or bait fishing, what I think they call Zero Fishing Method [ ゼロ釣り方法 ]. That uses extremely light lines with small split shot weight. See the Tenkarabum page for - Keiryu fishing,
