Welcome to the 2013 Shimano Catalogue. It doesn’t matter if you are a pro fisherman or a pleasure fisherman... fishing is one of life’s more enjoyable experiences. It’s a way to escape from the pressures of modern life, a place to get back in touch with nature and re-charge your batteries. And one of the advantages of fishing is that once you have your tackle, it can be a relatively cheap sport to participate in. Shimano realises this, which is why we offer such a wide range of tackle covering almost all of the fishing disciplines found throughout the world. From our award winning rods and reels, which use the very latest materials, designs and manufacturing techniques, to our most affordable models suitable for novice or occasional anglers, you can be sure of one thing, Shimano is on your side. As a company with a Worldwide reputation for excellence we are always pushing the boundaries of design. Throughout this catalogue you will see new products so advanced that they would have been inconceivable only a few years ago. The award winning Vanquish reel, the new Aero Concept range, the amazing Aero Technium XTB and XSC, the new Big Baitrunner CI4, these are all reels that are at the very top of their league and use the latest materials and design. But Shimano has so much more to offer. Many of our mid-priced reels now use X-Ship engineering which was a development once only found on the Stella, and AR-C spools are now fitted to almost all of our reels as standard, as are stainless steel bearings, roller bearings and Aero Wrap line lay. And it’s not just reels where advanced technology works its way down to all levels.

Specification Icon Key

A few years ago Shimano developed HPC (High Pressure Carbon) technology. This was originally found only on the most expensive rods. Now HPC is widely used through almost all of the rod ranges. Of course time never stands still and we are now using the revolutionary 3M Powerlux resin technology for some of our top models, a material that only a few companies in the World have access to.

New for 2013 Some of the highlights Aero Reels (page 14-15) The new Shimano Aero concept harnesses the power of Shimano’s strong engineering background to make a unique statement in high performance reel design. The three reels introduced under the Aero Concept umbrella are easy to identify by there oversized spool and rotor combined with a compact body. Each of the reels, specified for Spinning, Match or Feeder fishing have the same sized body. The differences are to be found in the gear ratio’s, handles and cosmetic appearance which are purposely chosen to match the anglers style. A set of line reducers are available to easy adjust the line capacity. All Aero Concept reels have Shimano X-ship engineering which provides increased power efficiency and extra smooth performance.

Power Pro Bite Motion (page 211) Best New Braided Line award at EFTTEX 2012, this high quality braid has ‘Bite Motion’ 5cm black marks, at approximately every metre, along its whole length. This enables the angler to watch for bites when retrieving, or whilst the line is slack, and greatly improves bite detection.

Vanquish (page 9) Built to the highest Japanese specifications, the award winning Vanquish is the first to come with a CI4+ Magnumlite rotor. The use of this new material, combined with a magnesium body, makes them the lightest spinning reels available for their size. The best Shimano X-Ship engineering is used to guarantee smooth performance and maximum efficiency. 4

Carp Luggage Range (page 175-180) The Shimano R&D team put a lot of pride and knowledge in developing a complete new range of Carp Luggage. Initial reactions prove to us that this range is extremely innovative and will be a must have for all specimen/carp anglers. The ‘Organised Compact Design concept’ makes the complete range work perfectly together! Additional features like Duralast zippers and Power Stitch will ensure long lasting and trouble free use. The revolutionary Aero Quiver concept enables the angler to keep building storage solutions meeting his or her personal needs or demands!

Aspire DX Spinning (page 63)

The new Aspire DX Spinning is one of the first Shimano rods to use the revolutionary 3M Powerlux resin technology. Very few companies can use Powerlux (usually only specialist rod manufacturers) which is a good indication of the reputation Shimano has for quality and innovation Worldwide. The new Aspire DX is built using Shimano HPC300 (High Pressure Carbon) with Powerlux resin and takes rod performance to a new level. Stronger, more resilient and with improved sensitivity, this fantastic new rod also features Fuji K-Type SiC guides, a Shimano Power Cork handle and a custom designed Fossil Wood reel seat. The advanced technology, combined with understated graphics, results in a range of rods which will meet the standards of the most demanding of anglers throughout Europe and the World.

Ultegra Fluorocarbon (page 207) Shimano Ultegra Fluorocarbon is a high quality Japanese fluorocarbon main line constructed from different layers to create an extremely abrasion resistant line. The fast sinking, supple nature of this line offers excellent line management on the reel and is finished with a super smooth outer layer for long distance casting.

Shimano Reels Ever since Mr. Shozabura Shimano invented the first free wheel back in 1921, Shimano has put all its technical expertise, know how and manufacturing excellence into their products. It is therefore easy to understand why our fishing reels are known, the world over, for being both highly durable and reliable operators in any conditions. Best described as mechanical pieces of art!

Big Pit Oscillation Systems The quality of line lay and spool size depends heavily on oscillation type and speed A perfect line lay on a long nose spool with a big stroke can only be managed by using a worm shaft system like Aerowrap II. The difference in speed of the oscillating spool (going up and down) determines the quality of the line lay as well. Shimano Big pit reels all have Aerowrap II, but splits up 3 oscillation speeds; Normal Oscillation

< 20 rotor turns / full oscillation (up and down)

Slow Oscillation

20-49 rotor turns / full oscillation (up and down)

Super Slow Oscillation

50-100 rotor turns / full oscillation (up and down)

Beastmaster, Aerlex, Navi, Titanos and Biomaster have Normal Oscillation speed. The mid to high segment have Slow Oscillation speed, like Ultegra and Ultegra CI4. Then Shimano’s ultra high-end Aero Technium and Aero Technium MGS have Super Slow Oscillation speed, having a staggering 100 rotor turns per full oscillation.

CONCEPT The new Shimano Aero concept harnesses the power of Shimano’s strong engineering background and Japanese roots to make a unique statement in high performance reel design. The 3 reels introduced under the Aero Concept umbrella are easy to identify by their oversized spool and rotor design versus a compact body. Each of the reels, specified for Spinning, Match or Feeder fishing are the same in body size. The differences are to be found in the gear ratio’s, line retrieve, handles and cosmetic appearance which are purposely chosen to match the anglers style. A set of line reducers are available to easily adjust the line capacity. All Aero Concept reels have an X-ship engine running under the bonnet which will provide that extra and smooth cranking power when needed.

Light Weight Concept Shimano light weight concept consists of many features to decrease weight and to improve rotation feeling of a reel without losing any strength. Light and stiff body/rotor material Light and strong cold forged aluminum spool Ultra light rotor made out of CI4+ material Ultra light handle rotation, due to gearing efficiency The new CI4+ material is 2.5 times stiffer than current CI4. With a stiffer body there’s less wear out of internal parts. As well less CI4+ material is used in the Magnumlite rotor to decrease weight, to give light and smooth rotation feeling, but keeping the needed strength. This strength is needed to prevent rotor arms bending against the spool when using heavy drag settings. 7

Stella FE Stunning looks and poise is complimented by unbeatable performance. Technically Stella is as good as it gets, featuring a line up of Shimano innovation that other reels just can’t match. Hold a Stella and you will feel the remarkable lightness of the magnesium body, turn the handle and you will appreciate the smoothness of the Roller Bearing and 14 shielded A-RB bearings combined with the engineering excellence, but fish with it and you will never look at another reel again. Stella FE casts like a dream and plays fish with a drag so smooth (and powerful) that it inspires confidence, even in the most demanding situations. There are good reels, there are great ones and then there is Stella FE. Shimano’s very best with a reputation that’s the envy of the World. Kg

Rarenium CI4 FA

The Biomaster is a technically improved version, which will earn the same outstanding reputation. Running incredible smooth even under heavy loads is made possible with the X-Ship system. As we tend to fish heavier with smaller reels, the drive gear material changed to ultra strong and light aluminium as well as the body material into aluminium to cope even with heavy duty fishing conditions. The lightweight foldable screw in aluminium handle is positioned straight into the drive gear, eliminating any play while turning the handle. The new Biomaster is the perfect reel to use in both freshwater and saltwater conditions from light sensitive to heavy duty fishing.

Space-age CI4 technology makes the five-strong Rarenium front drag family of reels another must-see. Smallest of the quartet, the 1000FA weighs just 170 grams and has a spool capacity of 170m of 0.18mm line. Largest is the new 5000FA which takes 175m of 0.35mm and tips the scale at 320 grams. All five are packed with high-end features including brass gear, six Shielded AR-B bearings, Cold Forged Alu spools, Aero Wrap ll, Machined Aluminium single handle plus Maintenance Port. Kg

CI4 is a material created by the interfusion of carbon and polyamide. Initially developed by our cycling division for the Dura Ace brace bracket, a flagship technology which has now made the transition into the bodies of fishing reels. The upshot is a reel whose precision inner workings are housed within a protective shell with all the performance advantages of metal but weighing less and therefore reducing arm fatigue whilst increasing feel and balance through the rod.

Front Drag Reels Specification Charts & Glossary

TECHNOLOGY GLOSSARY

A spool design with a V-shape spool lip ensuring line to come of the reel in smaller loops for further and more accurate casting. The AR-C spool will minimize the risk for backlash. 12% lighter but equally as strong as orignal spool. CI4 is a material created by the interfusion of carbon and polyamide. Initially developed by our cycling division for the Dura Ace brace bracket, a flagship technology which has now made the transition into the bodies of fishing reels. The upshot is a reel whose precision inner workings are housed within a protective shell with all the performance advantages of metal but weighing less and therefore reducing arm fatigue whilst increasing feel and balance through the rod.

Hypergear This precision-engineered main gear transmits more power from the handle to the rotor. Designed to exacting tolerances, it requires less effort but returns more retrieve/playing torque with vastly reduced component wear. In fact, all reels offer a breathtaking 90.3% efficiency, which makes them not only feel great, but in years to come they’ll still be quietly purring.

Reduces reel wobble and produces ultra smooth performance.

This feature enables you to directly lubricate the inner workings of the reel without having to take it apart.

E.I Surface treatment doubles the durability of the spool surface and gives less wear out by eliminating oxidation.

Floating Shaft II The key friction area on most fixed spool reels is where the spool drive shaft meets the pinion. Shimano designers have overcome this by reducing a large percentage of surface area contact and incorporating bearings on either side of the shaft. The resultant design leaves the shaft in a ‘floating’ position, considerably improving efficiency and longevity. The HD (High Durability) gear is a further improvement of the famous Shimano 3D Gears. Applying a special new coating results in a much stronger and smoother running gear system. The out of the box ‘shop feel’ will last much longer.

Original high corrosion resistant A-RB ball bearing with extra shield for improved protection against incoming sand, salt or dust. Super Stopper is a one-way roller bearing that eliminates backplay for solid hooksets. With the reel set in anti-reverse mode you’ll find zero free-play on the handle thanks to Super Stopper II.

The special design of the Shimano Power Roller significantly reduces line twist during the retrieve and is a big advantage when using thin mono and braid.

Shimano’s revolutionary ‘Varispeed’ System consists of two specially designed gears. One is oval and the other a remarkable square shape! Only a special computer program developed by Shimano has been able to make these to shapes fit together perfectly – the result is perfect parallel line lay and improved fishing precision.

Rigid Support Drag

Waterproof Drag

This innovative feature eliminates spool wobble, even at light drag settings. So no matter your drag setting, the spool will not wobble. The result is an incredibly smooth drag even at extremely light settings.

With the use of rubber gaskets, the drag is protected against intrusion of the elements, such as water or sand.

Roller Bearing This piece of fine engineering has holds the main shaft and provides an excellent infinite anti-reverse performance. A Shimano roller bearing delivers a performance equivalent to 3-4 ball bearings.

The pinion gear is supported on both ends by our S-ARB bearings. This gives a super smooth operation,with anti-rust qualities. A larger diameter drive gear transmits more power to the pinion gear. The result is a smoother and higher powered retrieve.

Multipliers

This combination of aluminium and XT7 Graphite retains maximum strength exactly where required.

Baitcasting

By improving the internal friction efficiency Shimano succeeded to bring its line lay systems to perfection. Close parallel coils in combination with 2 speed oscillation ensure smoother and further casting.

Hybrid Aluminium Body

These spools are cold forged from aluminium alloy. The cold forging process creates a lightweight spool with increased structural strength and more resistance to abrasion and damage. See the full process on the next page.

Fly

Superb line lay is a Shimano reels hallmark. Fed by Power Roller, the Aero system lays close, parallel coils (Aero Wrap) so line builds evenly on the spool and exits cleanly with minimum friction for longer, more accurate casts.

Biomaster SW

The SW technology which was previously exclusive to the flagship Stella range, also adorns our Twin Power family. The TP5000SW-A, the TP8000SW-A and TP8000SW-A PG version, plus the TP10000SW-A are seriously tough reels, appealing to serious saltwater anglers seeking all sizes of fish including big game. Freshwater spinning experts will also appreciate such top-end quality. Bristling with advanced features including AR-C spools, SR onepiece bails and Waterproof Rigid Support Drag. Gear ratios range from 4.9:1 on the 8000PG model to a pacey yet perfectly measured 6.2:1 on the 5000. Powered by 10 x S A-RB bearings, these are true thoroughbreds.

The Biomaster SW is a power tool at an affordable price. The range consists of 3 models suitable for many disciplines at sea. The 4000 size model with a high gear ratio is perfect to fish for sea bass or other fast swimming predators of the sea. The 8000 Power Gear model with a low gear ratio is extremely well suited for jigging and is strong enough to lift big snappers and groupers to the surface. The Biomaster SW has similar features like its big brothers Stella SW and Twin Power SW-A to make sure it withstands the toughest fights in the roughest seas.

Saragosa F A family of reels which brings modern styling and cutting edge features, such as Cold Forged gear, Superstopper II and Waterproof micro click multi disc drag to the heavy-duty end of saltwater fixed spool work. Like the Stella SW, there is no anti-reverse on Saragosa reels because engaging an anti-reverse when playing big fish is dangerous to the angler, the fish, and the environment. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find 5 Shielded AR-B bearings plus a roller bearing on five of the seven reels, with one extra on the two largest models. These two in particular have already become popular with both Butterfly Jigging and Catfish anglers. Kg

TECHNOLOGY GLOSSARY

A spool design with a V-shape spool lip ensuring line to come of the reel in smaller loops for further and more accurate casting. The AR-C spool will minimize the risk for backlash. These spools are cold forged from aluminium alloy. The cold forging process creates a lightweight spool with increased structural strength and more resistance to abrasion and damage.

There is only so much you can do with a fantastic selling Shimano reel at this price point. Within Shimano we are therefore proud and happy that we managed to equip the Hyperloop FB with the AR-C spool. This mean more comfort & less effort resulting in greater fishing pleasure for the novice anglers. The Hyperloop further features classical styling along with high-tech features such as Super Stopper and Varispeed line lay. By turning the handle you can immediately appreciate the quality of the gears, and vibration is almost eliminated by Shimanoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dyna-Balance system. The Hyperloop also incorporates a Power Roller that keeps line twist to a minimum. Whereas the smaller models in this series are designed for all types of fishing such as spinning, float, feeder, or any other light to medium heavy styles, the large 6000 size is an ideal model for heavy duty spinning, bottom fishing or light surf casting.

TECHNOLOGY GLOSSARY A guide to key rear drag reel features and technology These spools are cold forged from aluminium alloy. The cold forging process creates a lightweight spool with increased structural strength and more resistance to abrasion and damage. Reduces reel wobble and produces ultra smooth performance.

Fightin’ Drag

Original high corrosion resistant A-RB ball bearing with extra shield for improved protection against incoming sand, salt or dust.

A secondary drag system conveniently located towards the rear of the reel for instant use. The special design of the Shimano Power Roller significantly reduces line twist during the retrieve and is a big advantage when using thin mono and braid.

Tri-Drag means Triple Drag. Front, Rear and Fightin’ Drag on the same reel. Currently available on the Twin Power CI4 RA (see page 24).

Good quality line lay is the most important feature for precise, long and accurate casting. Shimano’s revolutionary ‘Varispeed’ System consists of two specially designed gears. One is oval and the other a remarkable square shape! Only a special computer program developed by Shimano has been able to make these two shapes fit together perfectly – the result is perfect parallel line lay and improved fishing precision.

Available in 6000, 8000 and 10000 sizes, to cover almost all carp fishing methods, the Super Baitrunner XTR is faster than the model it replaces with a retrieve ratio of 4.9:1, yet still has the cranking power and strong rear drag to control the largest European carp. The tough, lightweight hybrid body is finished in contrasting dark charcoal grey and silver. This blends perfectly with top of the range carp rods featuring ‘custom finished’ dark anti-glare satin blanks and minimal graphics, making it the first choice for top carp anglers world wide. Whilst there has been a trend in recent years towards ‘big pit’ reels for increased casting distance, don’t underestimate the performance of the Super Baitrunner XTR. Featuring an advanced Cold Forged Aluminium AR-C Line Management spool and Aero Wrap II with 2-Speed Oscillation line lay, this model offers strong casting performance, especially with 40mm butt ring carp rods. Featuring Shimano reliance (SR) technology, 7 AR-B shielded ball bearings, roller bearing and a maintenance port for easy lubrication, plus a one piece bait arm, the Super Baitrunner XTR is guaranteed to match your performance and expectations, no matter how high you set them.

Baitrunner ST-RA In classic black with an XT-7 spool finished in silver, the ST models are packed with far more advanced features than you’d reasonably expect to find on a Baitrunner at this price point. Line lay is excellent thanks to our Varispeed oscillation which involves an oval and a square gear, computer engineered to interact perfectly. Incorporating a gutsy 4.6:1 retrieve, double handle and the equivalent of 5 ball bearings, the ST is available in both 6000 and 10000 models. If you’re looking for a quality entry-level free spool reel, look no further than the Baitrunner ST.

BIG PIT REELS COMPARISON CHARTS

A guide to key big pit reel features and technology

A spool design with a V-shape spool lip ensuring line to come of the reel in smaller loops for further and more accurate casting. The AR-C spool will minimize the risk for backlash.

This precision-engineered main gear transmits more power from the handle to the rotor. Designed to exacting tolerances, it requires less effort but returns more retrieve/playing torque with vastly reduced component wear. In fact, all reels offer a breathtaking 90.3% efficiency, which makes them not only feel great, but in years to come they’ll still be quietly purring.

Reduces reel wobble and produces ultra smooth performance.

This feature enables you to directly lubricate the inner workings of the reel without having to take it apart. A small oil-lubrication port can be found on each of the SR-System and S-System reels which, when removed, enables you to apply manufacturer approved lubricants to the inside mechanism.

Floating Shaft II The key friction area on most fixed spool reels is where the spool drive shaft meets the pinion. Shimano designers have overcome this by reducing a large percentage of surface area contact and incorporating bearings on either side of the shaft. The resultant design leaves the shaft in a ‘floating’ position, considerably improving efficiency and longevity.

The special design of the Shimano Power Roller significantly reduces line twist during the retrieve and is a big advantage when using thin mono and braid.

Finetuning of the Baitrunner Spool functionality. Both the small drag setting & the big free spool knob now work independantly. An improved user friendly handling is the result.

With the reel set in anti-reverse mode you’ll find zero free-play on the handle thanks to Super Stopper II. Unerringly positive every time, its practical benefits include micro increment settings of quiver tips or specialist bite indicators and faster hook setting.

Good quality line lay is the most important feature for precise, long and accurate casting. Shimano’s revolutionary ‘Varispeed’ System consists of two specially designed gears. One is oval and the other a remarkable square shape! Only a special computer program developed by Shimano has been able to make these to shapes fit together perfectly – the result is perfect parallel line lay and improved fishing precision.

Waterproof Drag With the use of rubber gaskets, the drag is protected against intrusion of the elements, such as water or sand.

Baitcasting

By improving the internal friction efficiency Shimano succeeded to bring its line lay systems to perfection. Close parallel coils in combination with 2 speed oscillation ensure smoother and further casting.

Hypergear

These spools are cold forged from aluminium alloy. The cold forging process creates a lightweight spool with increased structural strength and more resistance to abrasion and damage. See the full process on the next page.

Fly

2 Speed Oscillation is an advanced way of laying the line onto the spool during the retrieve. As the rotor turns the spool moves forward quickly and then returns slowly. This prevents the coils of line on the spool from interacting with each other and improves casting performance.

The Instant Drag system allows you to adjust the clutch from free spool to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;fightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in only a few turns. In the interests of fish safety & the environment, please ensure that you do not exceed the breaking strain of the mono/ braid when tightening the drag as this could lead to line breakage.

Aero Technium MgS XS-B Stunning cosmetics, extreme lightness and a truckload of new features, this reel will captivate the minds of all fishermen. The X-Ship system reduces friction to a minimum making this reel run much smoother and more stable. The newly designed cold forged aluminium drive gear reduces the cranking power making it easier to retrieve even the heaviest loads. With a magnesium body and rotor a staggering weight of only 440g is accomplished. The combination of our unrivalled Aerowrap II system with super slow oscillation speed creates the best line lay for making your longest cast ever. Imagine 100 rotor turns in one full oscillation and a line retrieve over one meter for a speedy line retrieve. The Instant Drag, setting the reel into free spool in just half a turn, will make this reel a dream to all surf anglers.

The new Aero Technium is now equipped with Shimano’s unique X-Ship inner workings combined with Super Slow Oscillation. This will give surf casters or specimen fresh water anglers a extreme smooth and powerful operating machine with a superb line lay. A real upgrade versus its predecessor.

When it comes to extreme distance casting, more speed equals more distance. That’s why we have used Ci4 (an exclusive blend of carbon and polyamide), to build the super lightweight Ultegra XS-A Ci4. The largest 14000 model weighs in at only 635g, a saving of over 15% on previous models, making it easier to move during the cast which generates more tip speed in the rod. Fitted with all of the best ‘S’ System features, plus a Cold Forged AR-C spool, closer meshed Aerowrap II, along with 2 speed oscillation for unparalleled line lay, when it comes to distance the Ultegra XS-A easily gives you more.

TECHNOLOGY GLOSSARY

The key friction area on most fixed spool reels is where the spool drive shaft meets the pinion. Shimano designers have overcome this by reducing a large percentage of surface area contact and incorporating bearings on either side of the shaft. The resultant design leaves the shaft in a ‘floating’ position, considerably improving efficiency and longevity.

These spools are cold forged from aluminium alloy. The cold forging process creates a lightweight spool with increased structural strength and more resistance to abrasion and damage.

Hypergear This precision-engineered main gear transmits more power from the handle to the rotor. Designed to exacting tolerances, it requires less effort but returns more retrieve/playing torque with vastly reduced component wear. In fact, all reels offer a breathtaking 90.3% efficiency, which makes them not only feel great, but in years to come they’ll still be quietly purring.

Reduces reel wobble and produces ultra smooth performance.

A spool design with a V-shape spool lip ensuring line to come of the reel in smaller loops for further and more accurate casting. The AR-C spool will minimize the risk of backlash.

This feature enables you to directly lubricate the inner workings of the reel without having to take it apart. A small oil-lubrication port can be found on each of the SR-System and S-System reels which, when removed, enables you to apply manufacturer approved lubricants to the inside mechanism. The special design of the Shimano Power Roller significantly reduces line twist during the retrieve and is a big advantage when using thin mono and braid.

Baitcasting

By improving the internal friction efficiency Shimano succeeded to bring its line lay systems to perfection. Close parallel coils in combination with 2 speed oscillation ensure smoother and further casting.

Floating Shaft II

The Instant Drag system allows you to adjust the clutch from free spool to ‘fight’ in only a few turns. In the interests of fish safety & the environment, please ensure that you do not exceed the breaking strain of the mono/braid when tightening the drag as this could lead to line breakage.

With the reel set in anti-reverse mode you’ll find zero free-play on the handle thanks to Super Stopper II. Unerringly positive every time, its practical benefits include micro increment settings of quiver tips or specialist bite indicators and faster hook setting.

Fly

A perfect line lay is needed to have the best casting performance and our unbeatable Aerowrap II system combined with Super Slow Oscillation allows you to make the longest casts ever. Super Slow Oscillation means 50 to 100 rotor turns in one full oscillation. Incorporated in our new Aero Technium XTB Mgs the oscillation speed is extremely slow with a staggering 100 rotor turns per oscillation.

Our DDM 9000 Beastmaster represents state-of-the-art in electric reels technology. It will amaze you with its incredible performance all contained in a compact body with a weight of just 1460 grams. Spool capacity is incredible, and can handle 1150 metres of 80 lbs Power Pro. Maximum winding strength is a massive 90kg, due to the clever construction which puts the engine inside the spool resulting in no loss of power. Also featuring 25 kg of max drag, and a max speed of 160 m/min, this reel really can tame any beast. With the added benefit of an easy to use menu, which allows you to fish your favourite fishing style quickly. Line Learning Adjustment also gives you the chance to have a millimetric setting of fishing depth.

If you were a satisfied owner of our original DDM HP then you will understand how difficult it was to improve; however our engineers surpassed themselves designing the new DDM PLAYS range. Available in three sizes. The smaller 1000 may be compact in size but still has the guts to cope with 25 kg of winding strength and a max speed of 185 m/min. The 4000 is more suited to larger species and features a massive 48kg of max winding strength and a speed of 160m/min. Both reels have two A-RB bearings on either side of spool, ensuring smooth and reliable operation for years to come.

Torsa

The big game reel that became a worldwide market leader has too many features to explain in a catalogue! It’s the solid construction in combination with easy to use features that is loved by the most demanding fishermen - one-piece machined aluminium frame, Cold forged aluminium spool, A-RB ball bearings, 2-speed gears, Twin Disk Drag system (on 16 & 130 size), elastomere grip and much more. This reel will play and tame the biggest fish with ease. The Tiagra A reel will give you confidence in your tackle, allowing you to concentrate on catching.

Torsa can be summed up as speed, power, durability and castability. When developing the Torsa, Shimano engineers succeeded in designing different types of drag cams, which can be put on the reel to create different drag curves. Eight drag cams are available, all with very different characteristics. The extremely strong frame and spool are created by cold forging and machining the finest kinds of aluminium, while the High Efficiency Gears are the biggest Shimano have ever designed for fishing tackle. The gears are housed in a low-based gearbox, creating an excellent balance that offers you more control. Torsa is available in a range of sizes that effectively cover the entire spectrum of British saltwater angling.

2-Speed Gearing This shifting mechanism is designed so that gearing changes are quick and easy, even when fighting a fish. The low gear ratio used for highpower retrieves is selected by pushing the button on the base of the handle. Return to the high-speed ratio by sliding the release button along the handle shank. By using two sets of gears, the drive and pinion gears are always engaged. There is no gear meshing during the shift.

TLD 2-Speed

A powerful range of lever drag multiplier reels available with either a single or dual speed retrieve. The Tyrnos 30 is the reel currently in vogue on the British shark-angling scene. This is the reel of choice aboard Milford Haven-based â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;White Waterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, which undoubtedly has been the most prolific shark boat in Northern Europe over the past six years. When loaded with modern, ultra-low diameter braided lines such as PowerPro, the smallest models within the Tyrnos range are proving increasingly popular with specialist anglers. The reels are small and light enough to fish comfortably all day for key species such as Cod, Ling and Pollack, yet retain the inherent strength and high levels of engineering to comfortably handle the most powerful species available in Europe, including the likes of wreck Conger, Giant Skate and sharks offshore in deep water.

Certain angling applications are incredibly demanding on both tackle and the angler. Shimano TLD 2-Speed reels feature a high and a low rate of retrieve, allowing you to instantly and easily switch from high to low ratio and then back again as each changing situation demands. TLD 2-Speed are also the perfect choice for the increasing number of anglers who travel abroad to fish for the likes of Billfish, Tuna and other large, powerful and fast running species.

TR - Charter Special

There’s nothing we can say about our iconic TLD range of multipliers that hasn’t already been said! Wherever you fish in the world today you will find Shimano TLD reels being used by anglers in both fresh and saltwater. TLD’s are a tried and tested product range which is widely regarded as being the industry standard in terms of affordable, high performance, lever drag multiplier reels. The design of the TLD range of reels meets the demanding requirements of British sea anglers who typically load their reels with either monofilament or braided lines, fishing for a wide variety of species with natural baits or artificial lures at anchor or on the drift.

Quite possibly the most versatile, feature loaded and affordable multiplier reels currently available to the UK sea angler. Like the TLD, the Charter Special range of two reels has been thoroughly tried and tested over two decades by countless anglers: it is unlikely that you will step aboard a British charter boat and not find an angler using a Charter Special! Key features that have made Charter Special such a success include a unique combination of a smooth lever drag, a level wind and a centrifugal breaking system all built into a rigid corrosion free graphite frame. The reel is suited to braid or mono lines.

Tekota

Boasting many features of the flagship Trinidad range, including an ultra fast 6.2:1 retrieve ( 4.9:1 on Tor50), the Torium range of reels offer unsurpassed quality and value for money. With a model to suit any European saltwater angling application requiring the use of a multiplier reel, not surprisingly Torium have become an immensely popular range. In direct response to requests from UK anglers, the Torium 14 has been engineered to include centrifugal brakes making it ideal for beach or uptide offshore fishing.

For many types of sea-angling a slower rate of retrieve is required. In these circumstances, the Tekota range is ideal with its 4.2:1 gear ratio, whilst the addition of a level wind will also appeal to anglers looking for excellent line lay. All models are also available with a line counter to help target fish feeding at specific depths. Baitcasting

Ratcheting Drag Lever Eliminates the chance of the drag lever backing off due to boat vibration, and the detents serve as a reference point as to how much the drag has been increased or reduced.

Waterproof Drag With the use of rubber gaskets, the drag is protected against intrusion of the elements, such as sand and water.

Clicker System Increases the tension on Freespool and activates a clicking alarm when a fish bites.

Calcutta DC The Calcutta DC incorporates a self energising Digital Braking system which features 8 different pre-programmed braking patterns based on lure and casting types. With this technology, each of the braking patterns provides awesome control over the feeding of the line, by applying the ideal amount of braking force at critical intervals. As a result, it is possible to achieve long, accurate casts with consistent backlash control. The increased RPM’s provided by the Digital Control System allow for longer casts. At the same time, the pre-programmed braking patterns allow for easy, instant, external adjustment to cope with any situation. Kg

For plus with multi or shifting points of centre of gravity and where there is little vibration by the lure when it is in its trajectory state during the cast. This mode will stop overrun immediately after the cast via the circuit board to extend the casting distance.

Front Drag

To get optimum accuracy to cast via pitching method etc. It brakes throughout the cast and it is used for short but accurate distance casting. It is ideal for pitching to cover in snaggy conditions and especially useful when matched with a glass rod where the reel will compensate for accuracy over the glass rod. In a head wind when the lure speed is severely affected by the wind, this mode cuts down backlash in this condition to give extended casting distance.

Rear Drag

The Calais DC has 4 different modes of cast, each with 8 stages to give a combination of 32 different patterns of braking capabilities to suit all fishing conditions. Adjusting this braking system is also extemely easy; the angler only needs to set the mode to suit the style and fishing condition before fine tuning with the external braking knob to get perfect casts every time.

It is for the excellent casting of metal lure like a spoon, spinner jigs and metal jigs etc. Ideally used for distance under the conditions where tail wind is present. The biggest energy immediately after the cast is fully utilized to the extreme, with maximum rpm being raised.

SUPER FREE SYSTEM

TECHNOLOGY GLOSSARY A guide to key baitcasting reel features and technology Dartainium Drag

Easy Access Side Plate

This drag material provides a wider range of drag settings, along with the smoothest Shimano drag performance ever.

On reels with this feature, to access the VBS system, a set screw on the handle side of the reel is loosed and the opposite sideplate rotates open. From here the VBS weights can be adjusted without having to remove the spool or any other parts of the reel, for easy, worry free adjustment on the water.

Digital Control The waterproof Digital Control System is self-energising: it recharges with each cast and needs no battery or power source. During the initial moments of the cast, the energy generated by the rotation of the spool is stored in the Digital Control circuit board and powers the Digital Braking System on subsequent casts.

Super Free The Super Free bearing-supported pinion gear system (SF) was designed to eliminate friction on the spool shaft during the cast. In standard baitcasting reels, when the clutch bar is pressed down, the pinion gear is freed and can actually drag on the spool shaft, creating friction and limiting the length of the cast. With SF, the pinion gear is supported by a ball bearing, and when the clutch is disengaged the pinion gear and spool shaft are kept in precise alignment. The result is zero friction on the spool shaft for increased freespool.

By flipping a switch, the sideplate swivels downward, giving the angler quick access to adjust VBS weights. The switch is located in a position that is easy to use, yet remains out of the way to prevent accidental opening. The sideplate is smooth for comfort when palming the reel.

VBS VBS uses centrifugal force rather than magnets to aid controlling the cast. The individual brake weights, when turned on, are forced outward at the beginning of the cast when backlashes most often occur, causing friction that reduces the speed of the spool. Once the spool speed begins to slow, the pressure lessens, allowing the spool to continue spinning. The result is a much more consistent spool speed that is easier to manage and takes advantage of the reel’s maximum casting distance.

Cold forging technology ensures a strong yet lightweight frame and spool. The frame is then machined and the result is a reel that is as impressive to behold as it is to use. As well as cold forging, Shimano is known for the quality of its drags. Both the 3/4 and 5/6 sizes incorporate a single disk micro-adjustable drag, whilst the 7/8 & 9/10 features a double disk system.

www.shimano.com Shimano Rods & Technologies

NEW 3M™ Powerlux™ Composites feature a revolutionary technology that contains nanosized spheres of silica so small they are able to flow between individual filaments of carbon fibre, creating a matrix of strength throughout the entire composite. The resulting material enables designers to develop rods that are not only incredibly strong and durable, but also lighter in weight and more sensitive.

Standard Nano Carbon Other nano technologies, like carbon nano tubes, cannot flow between carbon fibers due to their higher length-to-width ratio of 15:1.

3M™ Powerlux™ spherical nanoparticles have a 1:1 length-to-width ratio, uniquely allowing for more than 40 percent of nanoparticles to be uniformly dispersed.

During the heating process of any rod or pole the resin can be pushed to the surface of the blank which may cause an uneven distribution, resulting in weak spots. With High Pressure Carbon (HPC), pressure is applied to the blank during the heating process, forcing the resin to remain inside and ensuring an even spread. The result is amazing, creating a blank which can be up to 40% stronger than blanks made without HPC.

Standard Carbon

During baking, regular carbon develops an uneven distribution of resin in the structure of the blank.

BAKING PROCESS HPC Carbon

HPC Carbon Ratings · HPC 400 · HPC 300 · HPC 250 · HPC 200 · HPC 100

Adding high pressure during the baking process evenly distributes the resin throughout the blank which eliminates weak spots, and can increase blank strength by up to 40%.

BAKING PROCESS

Although the top-end technologies often make the most headlines, we fully recognise that the majority of anglers cannot afford or justify the spend on top-end products. And that is precisely why we are so excited about GeoFibre. A naturally derived component delivering high rigidity, high compression strength and high tensile strength to rods in the lower to mid-price band. Shimano rods powered by GeoFibre will raise performance levels to a new high.

Adding Biofibre reinforces the carbon fibres in all directions. This gives outstanding strength, shock resistance, lightness and power.

By applying a special surface treatment, Shimano succeeded in making natural cork more durable. Power cork is tactile, ergonomic, lightweight and attractive yet it will not absorb moisture, bacteria and degrade or age cosmetically. Being washable it will last for years and still look like new.

The Lesath BX Spinning has been designed and produced without compromise and delivers the ultimate performance for anglers wanting the very best. Lesath BX Built using XT400 carbon with added Biofibre and Shimano’s leading HPC technology the Lesath BX also features Shimano’s Steady Cast development. This feature delivers a spineless blank with reduced sideways torque, making casting more accurate. The use of lightweight Fuji SiC guides further compliments the casting performance and also improves the outstanding ‘special progressive’ playing action which is fast in the tip and parabolic in the middle section when put under pressure. The fast tip enables you to impart life and action to lures to entice fish to attack, whilst the parabolic middle keeps you in total control when playing the fish as it delivers controlled power combined with superb shock absorbing properties. Available in a wide range of lengths and casting weights to suit even the most demanding anglers, the new Lesath BX Spinning is quite simply one of the most outstanding spinning rods in the World.

Antares CX Antares spinning rods were first introduced in Europe in 2001 and many anglers must be fishing this classic with pleasure. Shimano improved the Antares by applying High Pressure Carbon technology (in combination with Biofibre) which makes the rod lighter in weight and stronger (up to 40%). Durable & strong Ti-Lite guides ensure long & accurate casting. A stunning micro-adjustable reelseat is blended in the Power Cork handle. Some things never change: The Antares can easily be recognized by its stunning burgundy cosmetics and the Scorpion butt cap!

The blank material is a combination of HPC100 (High Pressure Carbon) and Biofibre, making it lighter, stronger and giving it a more responsive action. Because the Speedmaster BX is now stronger, to handle even larger fish, Fuji Alconite guides have been used, which are one of the strongest guides from Fuji and perfect for extreme fishing situations!

This range is developed for the South Asian market to target barramundi and snakehead. These short rods are extremely strong and perfect for trolling for pike. The combination of a stiff powerful backbone and softer tip improves hook setting and during the fight the action of the blank absorbs the head shaking of the fish, eliminating hook pulls.

The development of the Antares Special Progressive was where Shimano originally developed the action which is now being incorporated into many of our other spinning ranges. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a perfect balance between casting performance, working the lure and fighting the fish. In the Antares Special Progressive the wonderful action is combined with extremely lightweight blanks and titanium guides. But donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be fooled by its lightness, it has the power and strength to control the hardest fighting European predators.

Yasei Shad Jigging

Vertical jigging has changed a lot over the last years. Jigging techniques have appeared - like Speed Jigging, a fast and furious variant of normal jigging. With Speed Jigging you need a longer rod because the shad is further from the boat and setting the hook is difficult with a standard 1.8m model. The YASEI jigging series is in tune with these latest trends and techniques, and have been tested extensively throughout Europe. The 1.85m rods are very well balanced due to the use of micro guides and balance weights, whilst the 2.15m versions are ideally suited to casting shads, or trolling.

Pike are one of the most popular predatory species, and fishing on big lakes or rivers with soft plastics is great sport, and something that can be incredibly effective. The Yasei Shad Jigging range was developed with this application in mind. Available in 2.7 MH, M and H models, all the rods are well balanced and have enough power in reserve to enable solid hooksets when fishing at distance.

Yasei Jerkbait

Yasei Dropshot

Jerkbait fishing is another rapidly developing technique. Gone have the days of using super stiff rods and big, bulky jerkbaits. The Yasei Jerkbait series is a range of well balanced rods with great fish playing actions which can be fished all day long.

Dropshotting can be used to catch all kinds of predators and has grown rapidly in popularity. The range consists of a 2.1m model for boat fishing, and 2.4 / 2.7m versions for fishing from the bank where extra length is required. All three dropshot rods feature small guides, and balance weights are available as an optional extra.

Yasei Aspius

Yasei Zander Pleasure

Fishing for Aspius is hard work, but you will never forget the attack of a big Asp! Sometimes anglers have to cast more than 40 metres from bank or boat, so our designers developed a 3m version for long distance work. The 2.7m Yasei Aspius was developed for short range fishing, and can be used with all kinds of lures and soft plastics.

When deadbaiting for perch and zander you need a soft rod - itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a matter of finesse, and the Yasei Spinning Zander have been designed with this in mind. The 2.7m and 3m rods combine perfectly with a 2500 size Baitrunner to create the perfect set up. These rods can be used from the bank, or as a second rod for boat fishing.

Yasei Spinning Pike

NEW

Yasei Pike is designed to meet the requirements of todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pike anglers. The rod is made with a special mix of HPC100 (High Pressure Carbon) and Biofibre to make it light but very strong. The use of the Special Fuji K-Type Alconite guides makes this rod look stunning and eliminates line tangling in the guides. The range enables you to fish with all kinds of pike lures form smaller shallow runners to big deep running lures. The parabolic progressive action allows you to feel the swimming action of the lure perfectly and has enough body to react firmly to a striking pike. This action also reacts perfectly to powerful runs and headshaking of the biggest pike without hook pulls.

Yasei Red Perch

A fast action rod with a relative sensitive tip for casting also light weighted lures. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big reserve in the mid and butt section to hook this fast, hard striking and hard fighting fish.

The rod is extremely fast with a sensitive tip. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s enough power in the tip to work your small lures, spinners and jigs. You will enjoy this style of light fishing, because during the fight of a perch the rod will start to work from the butt section. Also perfect to use for trout.

Yasei Red Dropshot

Yasei Red Twitch

These rods are throughout stiff with a sensitive tip. The fish needs to vacuum your soft bait completely inside its mouth to be hooked correctly. Even the lightest bites are detected by its sensitive tip. The fish will not notice any resistance and keep on attacking your soft bait.

Another addition to the Yasei predator family; the Yasei Twitch is a special rod developed for the twitch fishing technique. The rod is supplied with two tips; one with an extra fast stiff action for the twitch, and one with a fast medium parabolic action for top water methods.

Yasei Red Jerkbait The extremely stiff and hard action jerks your lure with force through the surface, splashing and attracting the pikes, who will attack from below. The hard action is needed to give the special jerk action.

Ferocious Solid rods are designed to cast very far jerk baits or stickbaits then allowing the angler a very precise action of the lure. The specific action of the rod tip with itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ultra-fast recovery will allow great rod tip speed to cast the extra meters that makes the difference. Steady Cast technology will lower rod vibration and enhance you accuracy. These rods are perfect to cast minnow type baits into the wind then work them with great precision. 240H model can cast big 30g lures with no problem but is still easy to fish with. The Ferocious rods can also be used with soft plastic or metal jigs as the greater length will allow a good control on the fall. 300

Wild Romance Pelagic Offshore Spinning for Bluefin tuna needs a compromise between a soft tip and brute force. Tunas are often feeding on very small preys (anchovies between 4 to 10cm) and do not attack large lures. You will need to cast a lure less than 40g very far, then have enough power to fight the strongest fish of the ocean. The Pelagic Offshore rod has been designed specifically to solve this difficult equation, a soft tip to cast far and a strong butt to fish with 10kg of drag. This rod will be great for « light » Tropical fishing with a line rating up to 65 lbs.

Tribal Xtreme A The Tribal Xtreme A is the result of extensive research and testing to create the best blank for a combination of accuracy and distance. The fast taper tip returns instantly on the cast providing ultimate accuracy and the High Pressure Carbon produced blank will withstand even the most aggressive casting techniques creating the ultimate in tip speed and casting potential. The fittings are the best that money can buy - an ultra secure but stylish ALPS Triangular reel seat and matching anodised slatted rear grip, plus the latest Fuji guides. Tribal Extreme is understated but reassuringly expensive for anglers who demand no compromise.

New technology has enabled Shimano to produce a blank that will instantly recover after the cast, contributing to distance and accuracy whilst retaining a perfect playing curve. The powerful 3K carbon blanks and reel seat combine strength and lightness, while the slightly tapered detail of the rear grip, stainless engraved butt cap and understated graphics sets this rod off from the competition in the looks department.

The Tribal Carp uses HPC processing, combined with a dual taper design and a 1k strengthening wrap, to produce a stiff but progressive action that designers and consultants have being striving to achieve for a long time. The Tribal Carp has the power to punch out PVA bags, Method feeders and big leads, whilst maintaining the playing softness to guarantee a hook-hold all the way to the net. The 2.75lb version has been designed to deliver excellent casting performance and accuracy up to 100m.

A 3K strengthening weave has been incorporated to maximise strength. Actions differ, depending on the test curve, the 12ft 2.75lb version being a more progressive fish playing rod and the 13ft 3.50lb designed to accurately cast leads extreme distances. A through action 11ft version is specially designed for the day ticket angler where shorter distance casting is required. The shorter length of this model vastly improves casting accuracy, gives more control in confined swims and allows the angler to net fish closer in. XT60

This model has been designed for carp anglers fishing surface baits, when lighter casting weights are used and a quick strike is often required to hook the fish. Built on 100 HPC carbon blanks, the Tribal Carp Floater comes in two models. Both are the same length and test curve, but the Longcast (TLCFL model) version has a different blend of carbons for increased casting performance. The relatively soft test curves are perfect for close range work or when using small hooks to fool wary surface feeding carp.

The soft tip section means this rod is suitable for small hooks and light lines, although the fast action means there is plenty of power in the butt which enables it to be used with confidence for larger fish like chub and barbel.

10-11.5ft Apex Predator The Apex Predator is the mother of all predator rods. Built to tame monster fish, it handles equally well with smaller specimens too. The Apex can be fished at 10ft or 11.5ft. The shorter version is perfect boat fishing, stalking or casting lures. When used at is longer length it can be used on rivers, medium range on lakes when the extra length aids setting the hooks. A powerful through action rod with a reserve of power should you need it.

12ft Allround Float The Allround Float is exactly what it says, the perfect all rounder. It can be used on commercial waters fishing for hard fighting carp, but also has the finesse required to cast delicate floats up towards lily pads on a misty summer’s dawn, when fishing for tench and shy biting Crucians. In testing, it also performed beautifully on the smaller rivers, trotting stick floats for roach, dace and even big chub.

12ft 6in Tench Float Float fishing is undeniably the ‘purist’ form of targeting Tench and this rod, with its two-piece construction plus cork handle and 14 well spaced guides is the perfect weapon. Its soft tip action cushions the lunges of powerful fish at close range, ensuring small hooks stay put without pulling out at the net. Fixtures include keeper ring, carbon line clip, balance weight plus Shimano reel seat.

11-12ft 1½lb Barbel Multi Classic

On larger waters where longer casts, heavier payloads and stronger flows present a different challenge to Purist anglers seeking Barbel. The Purist Multi Barbel Power’s 2lb test curve keeps you in control of all these demands, whilst still retaining a sweet playing action to tire out and defeat big fish. Fixtures and fittings are the same high grade as the lighter Classic version. The extra foot extension, which is removable whilst fishing, offers that little extra length to keep line out of the water.

Barbel are part and parcel of most all-round specialist anglers’ agenda. Some of the biggest known Barbel dwell in narrow rivers where casting heavy weights and countering strong flows are not an issue. It’s a common mistake to fish with too powerful a rod which lacks the correct playing action. With cork/Duplon grip and Shimano reel seat, the 1½lb test curve Purist Barbel Classic is ideal for such situations, providing two length options plus quivertip and Avon top sections.

12ft 6in Brench

11ft-12ft 6in Light Specialist

‘Brench’ was born out of the names of two species; Bream and Tench. Both reach impressive sizes of over 10lb, often inhabiting large, deep and weedy gravel pits which present a real challenge to anglers targeting them. A fast tip action on this two-piece rod assists distance casting. Features include Shimano reel seat, cork handle, carbon line clip and ten quality guides.

This ‘go-anywhere’ rod can be used with confidence on rivers, drains and lakes of all sizes. More than just another multi-length rod, its parabolic action and dual length facility (thanks to a one foot extension) are further boosted by the inclusion of two different strength Avon top sections, Shimano reel seat, cork handle plus carbon line clip.

12ft Avon Quiver S.T.C. The STC Avon Quiver is a six sectioned rod which is ideal for keeping in the car for opportune sessions. The through action is not compromised at all by its multi-piece construction, and as well as an Avon top there is also a quivertip top for finer bite registration. The versatile nature of this rod makes it perfect for a wide range of species and situations encountered on rivers and still waters.

12ft 2¾lb Deadbait Classic

8ft Pikey Poker

Deadbaiting remains the No.1 tactic for predator anglers, and the sheer numbers of big pike which fall to this approach each season justify its enduring popularity. The 12ft 2¾lb Classic is the lighter of two deadbait rods in the Purist range. Features include cork/duplon handle, Shimano reel seat, six perfectly spaced and sized guides plus hook keeper and carbon line clip.

A beefier rod for larger lures and heavier predators on bigger deeper waters, the Pikey Poker is another tremendous inclusion to the Purist range. Designed to withstand heavy duty use and abuse from boat or bank, its part cork-part Duplon handle carries a Shimano plate reel seat while seven quality guides ensure smooth passage of line or braid.

12ft 3lb Deadbait Distance

6ft 6in Little Ripper

On waters where pike lay further from the bank, the 12ft 3lb Distance rod will prove to be a better option than the 2¾lb Classic for the deadbait angler. Likewise if larger baits such as Mackerel and Herring are the choice, it’s extra power propels them further on the cast, without fear of overloading the rod or ripping the hooks out. The high grade fixtures are otherwise identical to the Classic.

Equipped with Shimano trigger reel seat, Duplon grip, seven quality guides plus hook keeper, the Little Ripper is a jerkbait angler’s best friend. Built to perform time after time in the most demanding predator fishing situations.

7ft Creek Critter Fishing for Perch, Pike and Chub with tiny lures and spinners is a growing part of the all-rounder’s armoury, tempting specimens from the most unsuspecting waters. The Creek Critter is the perfect weapon on Canals, small rivers and lakes, its spliced solid carbon tip enables pinpoint accurate casts, to get in between the most awkward snags where the best fish hide.

The second top is a feeder top, and again it carries bags of power with method feeder and big fish in mind. This is the ideal rod for the angler who doesn’t want to compromise in terms of quality but wants one rod that can do it all. The Beastmaster Twin Power truly is that rod.

Our commercial range of rods have built up something of a cult following over the years, and are now used by many of Europes top anglers. They are designed to produce the best possible action, which they achieve by having additional tapered extensions (not parallel softer extensions), and one piece quiver top sections.

The 12’6 Beastmaster commercial distance feeder has been designed specifically for the long range method. This tactic is now becoming the norm on a number of different larger venues, and is one rod which you can certain of helping to go the distance . . . and more. The Speedmaster comes at 12ft with a ringless 1ft extension that can be added while fishing just to get that extra yardage if needed. Team either up with the Ultegra 4500 XTB reel, and put quite simply, you have the ultimate long range feeder set up which allows you to put yards on the anglers around you. Some would call that an unfair advantage, we would say it’s all about using the right rod for the job, and with the Shimano Beastmaster feeder range we feel we have all the bases covered.

FEEDER RODS – RED ROD BAND The Commercial range of feeder rods have built up a loyal following. The range starts off with quite possibly the ultimate commercial angler’s tool - the iconic 9-11. Not only does this rod have the multi length facility, but it also features a one piece top section (2 Supplied with Beastmaster, 3 with Speedmaster), which gives you an unsurpassed playing action once a fish is hooked. Drop the rod down to 9’ and it becomes the ideal tool for those tight swims in summer, and a perfect winter bomb rod in a match where every fish needs to count. The 11’6 feeder has been specifically designed for the angler who wants a little bit more in terms of distance than the 9-11 can offer. The 11’6 also has a bit more in terms of back bone, which means that it can handle Carp to double figures with ease.

Pellet waggler fishing has become the tactic of the last few years, and we at Shimano have come up with two rods for the job. Firstly the multi length 9-11 which, when assembled at 9’, gives you the perfect rod for those swims where space is tight and the fish are just out of pole range. At 11’, it’s a rod that really can cope with anything that is put in front of it in terms of fish size. The 11’6 offers that little bit more in terms of casting distance, whilst also having a little bit more in the locker in terms of power to cope

Beastmaster Commercial The Beastmaster Commercial range is made using HPC carbon. This makes the rods even more responsive and considerably lighter than before, whist retaining the famous fish-playing action. There are two Pellet Waggler rods, three Feeder models which come with two separate built-in quivertip tops and a Heavy Action float model for larger floats and bigger carp. All Beastmaster Commercial rods have added Biofibre and come in two equal sections for made-up transportation.

Reflecting the desire for larger than usual double leg guides on carp match rods, we’ve included two options in the Beastmaster Float range. The 3.90m version is built using a fixed reel seat, whereas the longer version is furnished with a Slide’n’Grip reel seat, allowing you to customise the rod to suit you perfectly.

Catching carp on the float is one of the most enjoyable forms of fishing. The 13ft Beastmaster BX Carp Float rod enhances this pleasure through an XT60 + Biofibre blank, expertly designed to provide a perfect blend of power and finesse. Furnished with 16 Shimano hardlite guides plus Shimano reel seat, SDR plus cork/EVA grip, it’s the ideal all-round choice for the modern float angler.

TECHNOLOGY GLOSSARY A guide to key pole features and technology Through the application of a unique high grade of carbon lighter yet more resistant to wear and tear than woven material – Aero Joint will boost your speed of unshipping and decrease the chances of damage in this all-important area of your pole. Shimano Alignment system (S.A.S.) is a system to optimise the pole action. During production, the backbone of each section is found and marked. When assembled accordingly you get a backbone which gives the stiffest possible alignment.

The perfect matt finish of a blank. The silky smooth surface makes it easy to ship the sections of your pole during fishing. Because there’s no sanding process involved, the carbon fibers stay intact and no matt paint is needed, therefore saving weight considerably. In this process a layer is formed on the outer surface, which protect the fibers from damaging when scratched.

Available on the majority of Shimano poles, this unique process results in a finish that is silky smooth for almost frictionless shipping and unshipping in both hot and wet conditions. It also provides great grip for breaking down sections and playing fish. 126

The new ranges of Shimano luggage have some of the most radical and ground-breaking designs ever seen in the angling industry. Just like our rods and reels, great care and attention has been paid to the needs of anglers. Within the new ranges, innovative products have been created with specific aims to reflect the aspirations of specialist and specimen anglers alike. Scan the QR codes below with your mobile phone to learn more about our new luggage features.

Key Features

The Organised Compact Design system allows you to choose from numerous specialised accessory cases that fit, jigsaw-like into one of the many compatible carryalls, with the option to change them around for specific venues or the length of time that you plan to spend fishing.

The Aero Quiver system is simply based around an adjustable strap that components can be clipped onto. This offers countless variations, giving the angler the option to take as little or much tackle as they wish. This includes ready made rods, nets, pods, shelters, mats, slings and many more . . .

ZIPPERS

The new Duralast zips can handle the most extreme abuse to ensure Shimano luggage lives up to the expectations of the most demanding anglers.

Tough Power Stitching is widely used and involves double stitched seams which produce increased strength.
