Shimano Game Type J Rods

Shimano’s ‘Game Type J’ series of jigging rods are high-tech imports from their Japanese Domestic Market (JDM).

Shimano’s Game Type J Rods

There are five powerful spin rods and one overhead/baitcaster (pictured) in the line-up.

All are of single-piece construction, with high-carbon blanks that are incredibly light yet super strong, created through a Spiral X and High Power inner and outer weave.

The Game Type J rod series includes models for finesse micro-jigging at the lighter end, while at the heavy end there are much more powerful jigging weapons suitable for dropping substantial lumps of metal and turning the heads of heavyweight reef dwellers like yellowtail kings, samson fish and amberjack, or coral reef thugs like GTs and dogtooth.

Befitting their high-performance status, these rods come fitted with premium Fuji K-series SiC guides with stainless-steel frames, Shimano’s high-grade reel seats, and custom-shaped, hard, split EVA grips for greater comfort while working a jig and when hooked-up.
