SHIMANO Teramar XX SW Baitcasting Rod
The Teramar XX Southwest (SW) series of rods set a new standard in performance with technique-specific powers, actions, and features for targeting redfish, trout, flounder, and other inshore game fish in the Gulf region of the United States. The epitome of performance, Termar XX SW rods incorporate Shimano’s proprietary Spiral X and Hi-Power X technologies for increased power transmission through the rod for increased casting distance as well as reduced blank twist.
Designed with shorter rear grips for anglers wading shallow water, the Teramar XX SW series features split grips and are ideal for anglers throwing topwater, subsurface lures and jigs. The fast parabolic actions of the Teramar XX SW load deep into the backbone to ensure treble hooks won’t pull out while still having plenty of power to handle hard-fighting fish. The bar is raised: the Teramar XX SW series of rods are the ultimate inshore rods for Gulf Coast anglers.
- 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
- Spiral X - Through its exclusive lightweight structure, Shimano’s patented Spiral X construction enhances catching power for anglers. Spiral X construction consists of three layers: a middle layer of vertical fibers as well as inner and outer layers, both comprised of carbon tape that tightly winds the blank diagonally in opposite directions. By using this carbon tape in place of a conventional horizontal fiber sheet, Spiral X achieves enhanced compression rigidity and increased torsional rigidity without adding extra weight. This facilitates instant power transmission for precise casting and fish fighting
- CI4+ is an advanced version of the original CI4. This highly technical carbon material maintains 2.5 times more rigidity than CI4. While improving lightness and rigidity, the body and rotor are further reduced in size and weight
