Seaguar - always the best fluorocarbon!
In 1966, Mr. Ishii, a Chemical Engineer employed in the researcher division of Kureha, Japan, and Mr. Yoshida, and avid angler working in the Patent Department of Kureha, Japan, noticed that the attributes of Fluorocarbon were ideally suited to fishing line. The men saw that Fluorocarbon is less absorbant than nylon monofilament, impervious to UV rays, high-density and nearly invisible underwater. They knew early on...Fluorocarbon would revolutionize fishing line! And so the two men applied for a patent, which was granted and registered in 1969.
That year Kureha launched its Fluorocarbon Development Project. The committee was staffed with 40 Kureha employees but its primary purpose was to develop Fluorocarbon film for capacitors and to formulate Fluorocarbon enhanced exterior paint, in order to harness its chemical and UV ray resistance. Development of Fluorocarbon fishing line suffered budget losses at the hands of these other priorities, but Mr. Ishii, now an avid angler himself, and Mr. Yoshida were passionate and determined. The two men continued to focus on line development but had use only of older equipment which failed and had to be repaired many times before they could continue the process.
Kureha had mastered the process of extracting only the highest-caliber Fluorocarbon crystal from which the leader and line resin is derived; it would be several years, however, before Kureha succeeded in extruding the resin properly to create Fluorocarbon fishing line that met the performance traits desired. Many engineers employed by Kureha contributed significantly to the development process but it was Mr. Hiroshi Sato and Mr. Ohhira who picked up for Mr.Ishii and Mr.Yoshida to tenaciously pursue the development of Fluorocarbon fishing line of only the highest standards. Several successful experiments and tests were conducted along the way to verify the properties and benefits of Fluorocarbon vs. other fishing line products. These milestones kept the project alive and won the support of executive management.
Finally, once quality standards had been established, once the production technology and equipment had been perfected and put in place in a new factory large enough to support the extrusion process, Kureha introduced Seaguar Fluorocarbon Fishing Line to attendees of the 1972 Osaka Fishing Tackle Exhibition. Anglers were impressed by its invisibility and high-density which allows the line to sink faster, providing less suspicious and more immediate access to the strike zone.

DUO International - Over 20 Years of Japanese Artistry & Craftsmanship
DUO was established as a fishing tackle distributor in the year 1995 when president Hisahiro Matsushita went independent and started his own company. The lure business of the 90's was severely influenced by the Japanese recession. However, DUO never compromised its principles and did not give up on the initial concept of making products of the highest quality. -Adhering to this principle, even at a time when the majority of companies switched to foreign factories for cheaper labor cost, DUO did not abandon the production in Japan for the inferior production in the overseas market.
Two years after the launch of the company, sales revolving around products created at the hands of Mr. Masahiro Adachi, one of the most acclaimed young designers in the country, were commenced.
Now in its third decade, DUO is a widely recognized brand in Japan's fishing industry, a country largely seen as the pinnacle of lure manufacturing.
DUO's chief designer and current CEO, Mr. Masahiro Adachi is well-known for keeping true to the height of basic performance and also has a world reputation for producing magnificent lures in which simple beauty is combined with outstanding performance.
By the year 2016, DUO's range of products included over 300 models and the number of lures sold reached over 20 million units. In addition, since 1999 the company has also been active in the field of OEM, supplying products to some of the top brands in Japan, as well as enjoying its own success.

Evergreen International is a world leading manufacturer of high quality fishing rods, reels, lures, lines, accessories and equipment. The phrase “Form Follows Function” inspired the engeneers of Evergreen International in the development of product design. Evergreen's production follows the firm convictions that a “tool” can be defined as such only if it can be put to use and carry out its specific functions. As regards its “shape”, we have learnt that this is determined by its function. Consequently shape will never come before functionality. We don’t change shapes or designs only to launch a new product. Quite the contrary, we are convinced that, until the functional requirements of the tool don’t change, its shape must not be altered. In other words, if and when we will change a product's shape, this will happen because we'll have considered that its functions have changed or have been improved. Everything we have done so far and everything we will do in future will not concern products that will capture one’s attention only for their form. Because we are obsessed by functionality. Because we will continue making tools. Because we are Ever Green. The name Ever Green is chosen because it embodies the ideal to remain young forever.
