Lighter test curves have been designed in order to create a rod that cushions every lunge, even with the largest of carp. In the more powerful models, maximum casting efficiency was paramount, with CASTS IN EXCESS OF 190 YARDS RECORDED.
With 50MM BUTT RING and a 16mm ANTI-WRAP TIP RING on a hi-response blank, these rods have been geared up to help you cast further even in the lighter models. All of the guides on the rods have double legs for extra strength and a further increased recovery rate after casting and also incorporate an abbreviated rest lock that secures the rod in place when snag fishing. Built on an ultra slim XT60 blank and finished with a full Japanese shrink wrap handle, critical areas have a 3K strengthening weave incorporated to ensure this range reaches Shimano’s high quality standards and will last the test of time!
