Shimano Grappler Rods
Shimano’s upgraded Grappler series offshore rods have been designed for heavy kingfish jigging or topwater GT casting.
They now feature the company’s patented Spiral X and Hi-Power X blank technology as well as quality Fuji reel seats and Fuji K Guides with silicon carbide tips, and specially tapered grip designs.
Without adding extra weight, the high-strength Spiral X enhances torsional and compression rigidity under load, while the Hi-Power technology further reinforces structure and enhances torsional resistance. This all equates to an optimum balance between light weight, strength and control, giving you better casting performance and more control over your fish.
The series includes 19 dedicated Type J (Jigging) and Type C (Casting) models tailored to braid lines of PE 2.5 to PE 8 (approximately 22kg to 50kg). The RRP of the Jigging rods is $429.95, while the RRP of the Casting models is $499.95.
They are now available at leading fishing tackle specialists throughout Australia.
