The Suntech Kurenai Long is a surprisingly light keiryu rod.
I think by now everyone knows I really like the Suntech Kurenai rods. I think by now everyone knows I really like long rods. Put the two together and you get the Suntech Kurenai Long, which I really, really like.
I need to say right up front that the Kurenai Long does not have the extremely soft tip sections that the Kurenai HM30R and other HM rods have. The Suntech Kurenai Long is clearly designed for bigger water and bigger fish. It is still a remarkably responsive and sensitive rod, but it is beefier than the Kurenai HM series of rods.
