Category : INDUSTRY NEWS
“We are honored”, says Mr. Adachi, DUO’s Chief Designer. “We are also proud our lure line called Realis continues to gain acceptance. Much of this line is dedicated to tournament angling, providing anglers with top lure performance and unique innovation. Aaron is recognized as one of the greatest tournament anglers in the world. His experience and contributions will be important to DUO. It is a great honor to be recognized as his Title Sponsor”.
“Aaron’s attention to lure idiosyncrasies and performance will be incorporated in many of our bass lures. Importance around details and how a lure works is one of DUO’s priorities. Aaron is the perfect match for this deployment. The Martens family are dear to me, so personally, I am excited for Leslie (Aaron’s wife) and Aaron”. Commented David Swendseid, DUO International USA Manager.
“I am excited. It’s cool [Smiling]…I mean to have a company that works hard to include your perspective…really cool. They have some great baits… the details…the different actions. Lures that have made an impression on me are the M-line Series crankbaits, their Jerkbait line including the Rozante (a petite bait) and the G87 deep cranks that in my opinion continue to be one the very best deep cranks out there. I fish the elites and there are a lot of guys that use the brand. We are planning new baits 2019. I fly to Japan this year with David and our focus is 90% R&D, 10% eating.”
“DUO International just completed the largest JDM factory in Japan. Our lure testing facility is the probably the largest in the world. For those that don’t know JDM, it stands for Japanese Domestic Market. This means the design, quality, manufacturing is all Japanese. We have a multi-level approach to Research and Design. Most JDM companies have resulted in heavy outsourcing and overseas production. DUO’s multifaceted facility is truly unique, the only one of its kind in the world.” Said Swendseid.
