Shimano Tiagra Ultra Rods
Successful gamefishing requires equipment that will stand up to the challenge of prolonged battles with exceptionally large and powerful fish.
This is why the new Shimano Tiagra Ultra stand-up series rods are proving so popular, especially with the increasing numbers of bluewater anglers using braided line like Power Pro Hollow-Ace in conjunction with a mono topshot.
Factory built but with custom rod styling, the Tiagra Ultra series features braid-friendly Alps RX roller guides for minimal friction that prolongs the life of your line, giving you security during those long battles on hot days that normally shred line rubbing over dry fixed guides.
They also feature Winn foregrips for comfort and grip, and detachable Pacific Bay Channel Lock carbon butts in either straight or curved, depending on the model. Beneath all this technology is a Biofibre High Pressure Carbon 300 blank, delivering fish-fighting pressure across a sweet, smooth parabolic action.
Shimano’s Tiagra Ultra series gamefishing rods are available in models to suit 10-15kg, 15-24kg and 24-37kg line classes with a straight carbon butt. There are also 15-24kg and 24-37kg line class models that come with both straight and a curved carbon butts.
These rods are available from leading tackle stores Australia-wide. To find your nearest stockist, call (02) 9533 0000.
