Shimano Ocea Plugger Full Throttle Rods
Shimano Japan named these rods Full Throttle because that is how these specialised rods are meant to be fished!
Originally designed for the Japanese Domestic Market (JDM) but now available in Australia, this saltwater spin rod series is ideal for casting slugs and surface lures to schools of tuna, kingfish, GTs or dolphinfish out on the blue water.
Utilising Shimano’s exclusive nano-alloy High Power X Spiral graphite blanks, these rods propel and then work surface lures like the Ocea Spouter or Rock Dive with ease, and then comfortably handle a 60-degree fighting angle once hooked-up. As befitting rods of this standard, every component is premium quality.
Designed to suit braided lines from PE4 to PE8, and lure weights from 20 to 150g, these rods are fitted with heavy-duty Fuji DPS reel seats and Fuji Titanium guides with SiC inserts for minimal friction.
These rods are all two-piece for ease of travelling and storage, with the ferrule hidden beneath the foregrip to give the rods maximum strength. After all, Shimano’s Plugger Full Throttle rods have been designed with big pelagics in mind.
These rods are available from leading tackle stores Australia-wide. To find your nearest stockist, call (02) 9533 0000.
