Shimano saltwater rods appeal to today’s angler for their versatility. Use them when fishing an anchovy on 20lb. line or a monster tuna with an 80lb. line—and everything in between. The TC4 construction of this rod allows for an extremely thin blank, which results in a fast, responsive rod of medium-heavy power with flex confined to the last quarter before the tip. It features Fuji K-Series tangle-free guides with Alconite inserts that are perfect for fishing with PowerPro or any of today’s braided lines. The aggressive, forward-facing angle of the guides takes away any possibility of ever experiencing a braid “wind knot.”
