The original rockshore rod, for anglers who seek the finest quality
We released our first rockshore rod over 20 years ago. MUTHOS was developed to satisfy the most dedicated anglers who are passionate about shore fishing for big fish. Because there was no rod specifically for this purpose, we explored new rods and fishing methods through a series of trial and error, making numerous prototypes and testing them many times. We avoided flashy designs and removed all unnecessary parts to focus on the essence of our ambitious ideas. The result of this long process was MUTHOS, a genuinely useful rockshore rod.
The handling of a light rod with the power of a rockshore rod
Powerful rods are necessary for targeting big fish, but they can’t handle light lures perfectly. Medium-class rods are good for light lures around 10g, but they lack the strength to fight big targets. The main concept behind MUTHOS Sonio 100M was the need to overcome this issue. We finally created the ideal rod blank based on the MUTHOS Accura and many field tests. The Sonio 100M casts and controls 10g to 100g lures like a medium-class spinning rod with a sensitive, soft tip, yet it displays the exceptional power of a real rockshore rod when fighting big targets.
A rockshore rod that overturns common wisdom
Although this is a heavy-duty rod, we designed it so you can keep fishing for a long time thanks to its perfect flexibility that causes less muscle strain. It’s gentle on your body—from jig and plug control to casting—and is bendy enough to fight big fish.
Tip: magic tip
This rod has a magic tip with an exquisite balance that can only be achieved through feedback from real anglers, and matches a very wide range of jigs and plugs. Casting capability is particularly increased when you use a light plug, and the tip works very well for hooking short bites.
Belly: front partThe well-balanced elastic belly handles jig and plug resistance and increases lure usability. The belly section also absorbs shock from powerful fish reactions.
Belly: rear partBeyond simple stiffness, high repulsion and torque provide easy control and good tension. This special belly also improves casting distance.
Butt: flexible, strong butt
The Accura 100H provides the power range of the previous HH class, while the Accura 100HH has the power of the HHH class, so you can aim for larger fish. This strong butt is not rigid or hard; it has enough rod curve to achieve high performance with minimum physical exhaustion. The maximum lure weight has also been increased.
