SHIMANO Tallus PX Conventional Rod
The new Tallus PX series of rods sets a new standard for saltwater conventional and spinning rods. Unlike other rods on the market that are known to be heavy, bulky, and often uncomfortable to fish with, the versatility of Tallus PX rods are unmatched and built to be multipurpose while enhancing angler experience and overall fishing performance.
Tallus PX blanks feature Shimano’s Hi-Power X technology to make the rods lighter, more rigid, and less prone to twisting and ovalization than rods with standard blank construction. Hi-Power X technology enhances performance by transferring energy efficiently through the rod to increase casting distance and provide improved lifting power when fighting fish.
The new Tallus PX casting and spinning rods incorporate high-performance and durable Seaguide guides for increased corrosion-resistance and are ready for battle after battle, no matter the target species.
- Hi-Power X construction uses diagonally-wrapped carbon tape to form an array of “X” shapes on the rod blank’s outermost layer. The width of the tape, its winding angle and the part of the rod being wrapped are fine-tuned according to the target fish species. This manufacturing process allows Shimano to adjust these wraps during construction for precise actions, enhanced overall strength and added twist resistance. In short, Hi-Power X construction delivers sharp and crisp rod control for the angler
