Deon Hunter Black Tip HDX T

Deon Hunter Black Tip HDX T













July 1st 2016

Check out this video of Deon Hunter landing a nice Black Tip on the Padre Island National Seashore.

The rod Deon is using is an HDX Tournament butt rigged with the reel in the low position. The HDX Tournament butt 

is normally 14ft. Deon has  us take a foot off the bottom of the butt to make it a total length of 13ft. The version of our HDX is rigged as an Acid Wrapped tip used for paddled out bates. The reel he used is an Avet 50 Wide loaded with Jerry Brown 100lb.

Deon Acid









Deon has been given an Acid Wrapped HDX T low reel seat for him to fish the Texas sharks South African style. Deon is an awesome caster and able to use the power of the HDX in his casting and fishing.








Deon has been helping us to promote the Slideaway method of fishing giving knowledge packed seminars on rigging and fishing techniques that have been successfully used in South Africa. We welcome Deon on to the team and we will be producing a video in the near future on his techniques.
