Welcome to the 2014 Shimano Catalogue. Throughout the world Shimano fishing tackle is associated with innovation, quality and value. Whether it’s the latest version of the award winning Stella SW, designed for some of the most extreme fishing on the planet, or the new ‘value for money’ Exage Mono, the one thing you can rely on is the Shimano name. It’s your guarantee of quality.

As you look through this 2014 Shimano catalogue you will notice a wide range of new products. Some of these are upgrades are on well known products, part of the natural evolution embraced by Shimano.

As a company, Shimano design products from the top down and constantly push the boundaries of what is possible. The benefit for anglers is that our most innovative products deliver genuine advantages, not available elsewhere. And the benefits are not only restricted to high-end products, Shimano mid and lower-priced products also feature superb innovation.

The award winning Stella SW is a classic example of Shimano’s continual development program. We have taken a reel considered by many to be the best in the world and made it even better, by introducing a wide range of upgrades. The same applies to Power Pro Zero Impact. This is Power Pro braid with increased diameter sections placed along its full length. This enables you to make stronger connections in the increased diameter zone without using a heavier braid.

X-Ship, developed for the very best Shimano reels in the world, now appears at the heart of many mid-priced reels. X-Ship is a combination of features that work together to create much greater efficiency. This delivers outstanding performance including more power, less wear and improved reliability.

Further developments include the launch of Exage mono. This award winning line is available in a wide range of sizes and also comes in a new ‘spool filler’ concept which eliminates waste by offering you the correct amount of line for a stated spool size. The ‘free line’ promotion, launched last year, also continues with new 2014 and previous 2013 Shimano reels.

Our rod range continues to grow and gain an enviable reputation. At the high-end of the market Shimano are one of only a few companies to use 3M Powerlux, the most advanced carbon resin in the world. Rods built using this technology are stronger, lighter and more responsive. A perfect example of this is the outstanding new Tribal Ultra carp rod.

Following the huge success of the Organised Compact Design carp luggage, a new Tribal XTR range is now available with improved features and an exclusive, modern camouflage pattern developed especially by Shimano.

For mid-range and lower-priced rods Shimano uses many different material technologies including HPC (High Pressure Carbon) and Biofibre, which adds strength and increases feeling and response. As an indication of how important Shimano view all anglers, irrespective of ability or budget, we are now using Fuji guides on many mid-priced rods.

Innovation, quality and value. Shimano delivers all three, across a range of product covering the needs of all anglers, from the most advanced to the least experienced. Shimano... when it’s time to go fishing, it’s the name you can trust.

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!


REEL TECHNOLOGY 7

AT THE HEART OF ALMOST ALL TOP AND MIDPRICED SHIMANO REELS IS XSHIP. THIS TECHNOLOGICAL FEATURE PRODUCES OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCE AND IS ONE OF THE MAIN REASONS WHY SHIMANO HAS THE ENVIABLE REPUTATION AS ONE OF THE PREMIER REEL MANUFACTURERS IN THE WORLD.

Shimano has many unique technological features which deliver the ultimate in reel performance, and at the heart of many models is Shimano X-Ship. X-Ship is a combination of features that work together to create much greater efficiency. By positioning the pinion gear close to the centre line of the large diameter drive gear, more power is transferred from the handle to the rotor. The pinion gear is also supported by two Shimano A-RB roller bearings. This creates more stability and minimises pinion gear twist and rotor deflection in extreme situations.

THE BENEFITS OF XSHIP • Lighter handle rotation • Greater winding power • Less deflection of the rotor under extreme pressure • Reduced twist of the pinion gear shaft • Increased smoothness • Reduced wear • Maximum efficiency

GEARING AND BEARINGS

X-Ship is a combination of features that work together to create much greater efficiency. By positioning the pinion gear close to the centre line of the large diameter drive gear, more power is transferred from the handle to the rotor. The pinion gear is also supported by two Shimano A-RB roller bearings. This creates more stability.

Shimano Shielded A-RB bearings use a shield to prevent contamination. This protection reduces wear, improves efficiency and deliverers super smooth performance.

Shimano S A-RB bearings are high corrosion resistant A-RB ball bearings with an extra shield for improved protection against sand, salt or dust. S A-RB bearings are used in salt water reels.

MATERIALS

Hypergear

magnesium

The precision engineered main Hypergear 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.

Shimano use magnesium for a select number of ultra high quality reels where weight saving is essential. The use of magnesium offers a weight saving of up to 10% compared with aluminium.

CI4+ is an advanced version of the original CI4. This highly technical material is 2.5 times stiffer than CI4 and is used on many high-end Shimano reels to increase weight savings. Use of CI4+ for the body and rotor also delivers remarkable stiffness for better reel efficiency.

aluminium

Dyna-Balance reduces wobble during the retrieve by counter balancing the rotor to enhance sensitivity and smoothness. By using computer balancing Shimano are able to redistribute the rotor weight to create eliminate vibrations.

Easy Maintenance is a small oil lubrication port that enables direct lubrication of the inner workings of a reel with approved Shimano lubricant. Some highend Shimano reels have a line roller lubrication option.

Shimano uses aluminium in many different forms to construct lightweight, ultra strong reel bodies and rotors for midpriced and high-end reels. Diecast aluminium is used for many types of reel and is most common on fixed spool reel bodies and rotors. It is also used for spools on P4 fixed spool reels and come baitcasting models. Cold Forged aluminium is used for some ‘round’ reels, fly reels and is also used for many types of spool. Made from one single piece of aluminium Cold Forging produces great strength. Machined aluminum is used for the very best multiplier reels where precision, strength and lightness are very important. Hybrid bodies are produced from a combination of aluminium and XT7.

CI4 is an exclusive material created by the inter-fusion of carbon and polyamide. It is almost as strong as metal with the lightness of a composite. CI4 is used for the body and rotor on many Shimano reels.

XGT-7 XGT-7 is an improved version of the tried and trusted Shimano XT-7 composite material. Used on some of the newest mid-priced reels XGT-7 is lightweight and stiff.

XT-7 XT-7 is the original Shimano composite reel material. Used on mid-priced and budget reels and spools XT-7 is reliable, robust and lightweight.


REEL TECHNOLOGY GLOSSARY 9

REEL TECHNOLOGY

SHIMANO HAVE A REPUTATION FOR ENGINEERING EXCELLENCE AND INNOVATION THROUGHOUT THE WORLD. BELOW IS AN OVERVIEW OF THE MOST IMPORTANT SHIMANO REEL FEATURES. MANY FEATURES, ORIGINALLY ONLY ON THE MOST TECHNICAL REELS, ARE NOW WIDELY AVAILABLE. THESE FEATURES INCLUDE XSHIP, AERO WRAP II AND ARC SPOOLS.

LINE LAY AND LINE MANAGEMENT

Aero Wrap and the advanced Aero Wrap II is a worm gear oscillation system with a specially designed pitch to create optimal oscillation speeds. This provides superb uniform line lay to reduce loss of energy during the cast. Aero Wrap II is considered one of the best line lay systems in the world.

Varispeed and the latest version called VariSpeed II oscillation system moves with two variable speeds to lay the line flat and smooth onto the spool. This provides trouble-free, longer distant casts. Varispeed is found on budget and midpriced Shimano reels.

Aerowave Aerowave is used on some Shimano saltwater spinning reels. This oscillation system is simple in nature, yet produces excellent line lay with both braid and mono.

Shimano AR-C Spool is a patented spool design with an angled spool lip. This design enables the line to leave the spool with less friction and in smaller coils resulting in longer more accurate casts. AR-C spools are proven to reduce backlash and wind knots when using braid. AR-C spools are now standard on almost all Shimano reels.

Oscillation One speed Oscillation -the spool moves at a consistent speed. Two speed Oscillation - the spool moves at two different speeds. Slow Oscillation - the spool moves slowly allowing more line wraps per cycle. Super Slow Oscillation - the spool moves very slowly forming almost parallel wraps of line.

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

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Super Stopper II eliminates backward movement and free play in the handle when the reel is set in anti-reverse.

Rigid Support Drag Rigid Support Drag eliminates spool movement and wobble, even at light drag settings. The result is an incredibly smooth drag even at extremely light settings.

Waterproof Drag Using special protection gaskets, the drag is protected against the intrusion of water for more consistent drag performance.

Fightin’ Drag A secondary drag system used on some rear drag reels. Fightin’ Drag enables the easy adjustment of the drag setting whilst playing the fish.

Baitrunner Spool II allows the drag setting to be switched from a pre-set freespool to a pre-set drag setting by adjusting the Baitrunner lever at the front of the spool.

Instant Drag allows the drag setting to be switched from free spool to a ‘fight’ setting by tightening the Instant Drag lever on the front of the spool in only a few turns.

THE 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.

> Ultegra, 150m , 0,25mm

The three reels introduced under the Aero Concept have been designed for specific uses; Match, Feeder and Spinning. The Match and Feeder versions have been developed specifically for the UK match angler, taking into consideration the requirements of modern match fishing. The large diameter spool makes casting easier with the stronger line now being used on commercial fisheries and the front drags deliver smooth, confidence building performance when playing fish. All Aero reels have Shimano X-ship engineering which provides smooth and efficient power transfer from the handle to the rotor, even when placed under excessive stress.

The new AR-C Aero follows on from the success of the Aero introduction last year. Available in a versatile 4000 size, in both standard (4.8:1) and high speed (6.2:1) options, the AR-C Aero is made from technically advanced CI4+ composite for a huge weight reduction – just 255g. The combination of X-ship gearing and 6 Shielded A-RB bearings plus a roller bearing ensure maximum power and smooth performance. For easy accurate casting the Aero uses Aerowrap II line lay and an AR-C spool.

Sizes from 4000 to 30000

SW-B The new STELLA SW focuses on absolute power. To achieve it, toughness, cranking power, rigidity, water resistance and drag performances have all been upgraded. The core technologies are X-Ship, which enhances power transmission efficiency through the gear, plus Power Aluminium Body, X-Rigid Rotor, X-Rigid Bail and X-Rigid Handle to improve rigidity and eliminate loss of power caused by flexing. Synergy generated by all these technologies combine to prevent loss of power input from the handle and create enormous cranking power. In order to support this power, extreme toughness from X-Rigid Gear is introduced at the heart of the reel’s body. X-Tough Drag, with its dramatically enhanced heat resistance and toughness, anticipates the blazing speed of bluefin tuna and giant trevally. Drag performance has been made even smoother, further assuring its reliability. In addition to these epoch-making mechanisms, focus is also placed on water resistance, in order to maintain their initial performance and toughness. The dependable X-Shield system has been applied throughout, and X-Protect provided at the roller clutch assembly - a crucial area for water resistance.

Ultimate toughness was sought for the main gear to withstand the maximum drag needed when tackling offshore pursuits. The difference is obvious; the new main gear is thicker and stronger. With its additional special surface coating, a maximum of 38% greater durability is achieved over past STELLA reels. This is a super tough gear suitable for the heart of the new STELLA SW, designed for perfection in the most extreme situations.

POWERFUL SEALING STRUCTURE THROUGHOUT

By providing dependable sealing structures and gaskets at necessary points, including the reel body and lid joint and the contact point of the spool and drag knob, possible water ingress is blocked.

Considering the harsh environment of saltwater fishing, aluminium was selected for the rotor material because of its excellent durability, rigidity and corrosion resistance. Thorough attention was given to the thickness of every detail to create a strong rotor with assured toughness. While protecting the reel’s main body against impact during fishing and transportation, the rotor brings out the potential of all features such as X Tough Drag. The rotary inertia typical of aluminium generates the powerful and smooth performance of the new STELLA SW and effortlessly supports fishing with heavy load lures or while deep sea jigging.

POWERFUL PROTECTION THROUGH HIGH RIGIDITY

The new STELLA SW introduces high rigidity aluminium for its body material. This housing material emphasizes the STELLA SW concept to protect the reel’s interior from the extreme saltwater environment, creating a body with excellent toughness. This feature provides tremendous certainty in challenging saltwater fishing conditions, enabling anglers to focus on their big prey with confidence.

The use of thicker titanium wire dramatically increased the rigidity and impact resistance of the bail arm. The nature of the metal makes the bail lighter and provides excellent corrosion resistance. A super-reliable bail system has been created by combining a onepiece bail wire, an SW barrier coat big roller reinforced with Diamond Like Carbon (DLC), and a high-strength hard coated arm cam.

NO LOSS OF CRANKING POWER!

Handle Handle shank In the new STELLA SW, the handle shaft is shaft casing now integrated with a one-piece collar. This all-in-one structure enhances rigidity of the shaft casing, while in addition a new configuration is adopted for the mating surface with the handle shank. This allows the shaft casing to thoroughly and accurately The new handle shaft casing design results encase the top of the handle shank, thereby in rigidity equivalent to a cast piece. increasing the rigidity of the entire handle. For 5000 size reels and larger, primarily used for power fishing, a cold-forged handle shank is used to prevent flexing and distortion while preventing internal torsion. With these new features, handle rigidity tests show a 35% increase in rigidity. Even under high load, the energy applied by an angler can be directly transmitted to cranking power.

The drag system of the new STELLA SW has advanced enormously in terms of toughness, smoothness and performance. The basic drag performance has been extensively reviewed and each of the metal and carbon drag washers show excellent heat resistance and durability. Through an in-depth study of the thickness and frictional force of each component within the drag system, the best combinations for optimum performance parameters have been found for each model and size.

The contact type triple-lip structure is introduced to the roller clutch, the pivotal point concerning water resistance. In this structure, the first lip prevents water from entering through the space between the rotor and the body. In addition, the special grease between the second and third lip - where it makes contact with the rotor collar located at the upper part of the roller clutch - not only resists water from entering but also minimizes friction resistance.

To provide the required smoothness at high speed the Super GTM is fitted with 3 Shielded Stainless Steel ball bearings, a roller bearing and a double handle for optimum balance. To keep the reel in perfect condition an easy maintenance port for lubrication is built into the lightweight XT-7 body. Ideal for float, feeder and fast lure fishing, the Super GTM-RC has a multi-disc drag plus adjustable Fightin’ Drag, Cold Forged AR-C spool and Aero Wrap II for optimum casting performance when using thin diameter mono and braid.

RC Nexave RC has a blue colour scheme designed to complement the full range of Nexave rods, and is the mid-range P4 reel which offers fantastic quality for an affordable price. Three shielded ball bearings and a roller bearing combine to produce a super smooth powerful performance and the multi-disc drag combined with Super Stopper II performs consistently and accurately when playing powerful fish. Featuring an Aluminium Spool with AR-C line management, plus Varispeed for excellent line lay with low diameter monos and braid delivering more precise casts even with light set-ups. The Nexave RC is one of the most recognisable reels in the rear drag range, and one that any angler can be proud to own.

BAITCASTING

Exage is the top P4 rear drag model and exudes quality with a visually stunning metallic platinum and gold finish. Featuring 4 shielded ball bearings and a roller bearing, Exage utilises a multi-disk rear drag system for smooth progressive performance, and Fightin’ Drag for precise adjustable control when playing fish. Featuring a Cold Forged Aluminium Spool with AR-C line management that’s suitable for both mono and braid, and Varispeed line lay which prevents fine mono and braid bedding in under pressure, the Exage RC is available in both single and double handle versions in a range of small and mid sizes from 1000 to 4000. For match anglers there is also a high speed (6.2:1) 3000 shallow spool, double handle model that is perfect for float and feeder fishing.

A strong lightweight aluminium spool comes as standard making the Catana ideal for both mono and braided lines. The Catana RB is beautifully balanced and suitable for light lines as well as more demanding situations. Dyna-Balance for exceptional smoothness and performance, and Super Stopper II for instant hook setting and assured fish-playing, make the Catana RB the outstanding rear drag reel in its price class.

RC RB The Alivio RC not only has recognisable silver and blue graphics, it also has the Shimano AR-C spool for longer casting performance and comes in a single or double handle version to suit angler preference. The 3000S is a shallow spool version and will suit match anglers who want the power and casting performance of the 3000 size without an excessive line capacity. The equivalent of 3-4 ball bearings ensures smooth performance, which is enhanced further by the balance of the double handle (DH Version).

The Hyperloop RB is the entry level of the P3 range. The reel 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 Shimano’s Dyna-Balance system. The Hyperloop also incorporates a Power Roller that keeps line twist to a minimum. The Hyperloop offers Shimano performance and reliability at a truly exceptional price.

The latest version of the popular Baitrunner XT range has received a cosmetic face lift and has been upgraded. Line management is now controlled by Aero Wrap II with 2-speed oscillation to deliver faultless line lay which in turn increases casting performance. Another improvement is the hybrid aluminium body which is stronger and lighter than the previous ‘RA’ version. Available in 6000, 8000, and 10000 sizes the Baitrunner XT-RB offers carp anglers a choice of sizes to suit personal preference at a very affordable price point.

ST-RA In classic black with an XT-7 spool finished in silver, the Baitrunner 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 the 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.

DL-RA With its midnight blue body and gun metal grey Cold Forged Aluminium main spool, the Baitrunner DL comes with a spare XT7 graphite spool as standard. Both have prodigious line capacities – 430 yards of 12lb on the 10000 and 300 yards of 10lb on the 6000 – and are powered by a Diecast Drive Gear backed by 3 Shielded Stainless Steel bearings plus a roller bearing for assured performance. Other features include Super Stopper II, Dyna-Balance, Floating Shaft II and a Power Roller to minimise line twist. The 6000 size is a favourite of specialist anglers fishing for barbel, tench, chub and bream whilst the 1000 size suits carp anglers fishing both large and small waters. The Baitrunner DL offers an excellent quality to cost ratio for carp and specialist anglers looking for a mid-priced Baitrunner.

HEAVY DUTY SALTWATER

Designed for lighter specimen and specialist angling, the XT combines the Baitrunner free spool facility with a silky smooth multi-disc front drag for versatile performance over a wide range of methods, from predator fishing through to carp. Possessing many technological features from the top of the range Shimano specimen reels, the XT has 4 stainless steel shielded ball bearings and a roller bearing for super smooth, reliable performance. A Cold Forged AR-C spool with Varispeed line lay makes this reel perfect for thin mono and braided lines, and offers excellent casting performance every time. With a powerful 4.8:1 retrieve ratio and Diecast gears, the XT’s might be small, but they are tough and are perfect for match feeder fishing on commercials and specialist fish on small to medium sized waters.

ST-FA

Since their introduction, the small sized Baitrunner DL FA reels, available in 2500 and 4000 size have opened up a whole host of freespool fishing applications never catered for by Shimano in the past. As comfortable when deadbaiting for pike or zander as they are feeder fishing for barbel or tench, these small sized freespool masters are built using the finest components and world renowned Shimano quality standards. Taking 200yds and 240yds of 6lb and 8lb line respectively, features include XT-7 body and rotor, Aluminium spool and XT-7 spare, plus Floating Shaft II.

The 2500 size is perfect for feeder and bomb fishing on small waters when fishing for carp or other hard fighting fish whilst the 4000 size offers more versatility and power making it suitable for all general, pleasure and specialist fishing.

BAITCASTING

MULTIPLIERS

Over the last years the DL version has started to become popular with match anglers for feeder fishing where the use of the freespool Baitrunner facility is a big advantage as it lets you pick up the rod and get it in position before engaging the drag.

Available in the same sizes as the DL, but with fewer ball bearings and no spare spool the Baitrunner ST-FA is the entry level small Baitrunner. Varispeed, Super Stopper II plus XT-7 body and rotor are still among the many advanced design features included in the ST’s construction. There is only one Baitrunner - the Shimano Baitrunner - so why accept imitations when these mini-marvels are available at such an attractive price?

BIG PIT

TOURNAMENT CASTING PERFORMANCE WITH SUPER SLOW OSCILLATION

XT-B MgS The Aero Technium 12000 XTB MGS is the ultimate distance casting reel for those who want the very best. It’s a reel designed without compromise and literally includes the best of everything Shimano has to offer in a sleek futuristic body that is finished almost totally in black with subtle chrome detailing. The magnesium and CI4+ body components produce remarkable lightness, which in turn increases rod speed when casting. The combination of the AR-C spool, Aero Wrap II and super slow oscillation (approximately 100 turns of line per full oscillation) produces the most perfect line lay and the inclusion of X-ship engineering ensures maximum cranking efficiency when playing fish. A prestigious 8 Shielded A-RB bearings, plus a roller bearing, makes this model the smoothest Shimano ‘Big Pit’ you can own and a few turns of the slim profile handle reveals it’s true pedigree. The inclusion of a line guard guarantees trouble free performance and prevents any chance of the line getting under the spool.

XT-B The use of CI4+ delivers a substantial weight saving on the compact Ultegra body making rod speed easier to generate when distance casting. To further increase casting performance the Ultegra uses 2 Speed Slow Oscillation line lay and an AR-C spool fitted with a Shimano Baitrunner mechanism. Cold Forged gearing and X-Ship produce powerful winding performance and 5 Stainless A-RB bearings plus a Shimano Roller bearing deliver supreme smoothness.

The combination of the AR-C spool, Aero Wrap II and super slow oscillation (approximately 100 turns of line per full oscillation) produces the most perfect line lay which significantly reduces line drag on the cast and the Baitrunner II spool can be easily tightened down for distance casting to prevent ‘spool slip’ under extreme pressure. The XT-C also features a line guard for protection.

AWARD WINNING PERFORMANCE FROM SHIMANO

XS-B MgS Breathtaking to look at, and then you pick it up … words cannot begin to describe the impact that a magnesium body and rotor make to this legendary reel, weighing in at a staggering 440g. The Super Slow Oscillation and Aero Wrap II work together to ensure excellent line lay which results in awesome casting performance. The gear ratio of 4.3:1 retrieves 102cm of line per crank of the biomechanical, ambidextrous, machined handle making short work of winding in from the horizon. The One Piece Bail totally eliminates line wrapping around the Power Roller and cold forged gearing ensures this reel will never let you down. The multi-disc Instant Drag facility enables a freespool to power setting in just half a turn of the front lever. With 9 shielded A-RB bearings and 1 roller bearing providing a staggering 12 ball bearing type performance this reel is one of the most advanced distance casting models in the world.

Fitted with an Instant Drag spool for quick adjustment, the ‘XSC’ also features 7 Shielded Stainless A-RB bearings, a one piece SR bail arm, and a totally waterproof drag. Available in two sizes, the 6000 has a shallower spool more suited to carp fishing whilst the 10000 has a large capacity spool. The result is awesome performance for anglers who really know what they want.

The use of CI4+ delivers a substantial weight saving on the compact Ultegra body making rod speed easier to generate when distance casting. To further increase casting performance the Ultegra uses 2 Speed Slow Oscillation line lay and an AR-C spool fitted with Instant Drag for simple, ultra fast adjustment. Cold Forged gearing and X-Ship produce powerful winding performance and 5 Stainless A-RB bearings plus a Shimano Roller bearing deliver supreme smoothness.

XS-C The Ultegra XS-C is a unique family of reels in four different sizes starting with two compact models (4500/5500) and two big pit/surf models (10000/14000). The ‘compact’ models cover a wide range of both freshwater and saltwater styles and are suitable for carp fishing, distance feeder fishing and lightweight surf casting for bass. The larger models are out and out distance reels suitable for surf casting or large carp waters where extreme distance is required.

Based upon a narrow body principle which equals less weight, smaller dimensions and easier handling than equivalent lever drag multipliers, Talica is truly a high-speed dream machine. Equipped with a Diecast aluminium frame, Waterproof Drag, Shielded A-RB bearings, brass gears and an aluminium spool, choose from 8, 10, 12 or 16 or the new 20 and 25lb rated twin speed versions. Line capacities range from 200 yards of 20lb to 420 yards of 40lb. A full range of single speed models are also available.

Product coding denotes: LRS=Long Range Special · W=Wide Body

FEATURES TIAGRA HANDLE OPTIONS The handle on any large multiplier is an important feature. At Shimano we use two different styles depending on the model you choose. TI12 and TI16 models feature Shimanos Ergonomic Power Handle (shown on product shot below), whilst larger models are kitted out with elastomere Crank Handles (above). Both are soft to the touch and offer the maximum in both grip and comfort, whilst giving you the maximum torque when winding in that fish of a lifetime.

HEAVY DUTY SALTWATER

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. 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.

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, in fact it is unlikely that you will step aboard a British charter boat and not find an angler using a Charter Special!

MULTIPLIERS

/ 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, you will find Shimano TLD reels being used by anglers in both fresh and saltwater. TLD’s are a tried and tested product which is widely regarded as being the industry standard in terms of affordable, high performance, lever drag multiplier reels. The design 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.

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.

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.

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.

The TR is the perfect choice for the novice angler. However this feature packed and highly affordable reel is also ideal for more experienced anglers looking to carry a second or third reel for use as a spare, or with a selection of different breaking strains or types of line. The reel features a level wind and is ideal for general downtide fishing at anchor with bait, or fishing on the drift with either bait or artificial lures.

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.

ROD TECHNOLOGY

XT CARBON Power Cork is tactile, ergonomic and lightweight yet it does not absorb moisture and is more resistant to bacteria. Created from natural cork, with an exclusive Shimano treatment, it does not degrade or age cosmetically. Power Cork is washable and used on many Shimano rods.

MATCH / FEEDER TROUT

Fuji are one of the leading rod component companies in the world and have a close working relationship with Shimano. Fuji guides are used extensively on Shimano rods. Fuji reel seats are also used on many high quality Shimano rods.

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

Shimano use PAC BAY components on salt water and freshwater rods. High quality aluminium reel seats are used on the best Shimano boat rods and lightweight Pac Bay Minima guides are becoming popular on telescopic rods.

Fossil Wood is used on some Shimano reel seats. Created by compressing organic raw materials into a carbon like state using over 1000 degrees of heat, the resultant material is much stronger than wood and each component is both unique and resistant to moisture

Shimano Low Resin Carbon uses less resin to hold the carbon fibres together. This results in lighter more responsive blanks. Low Resin Carbon is usually used on lightweight rods where balance and action are very important.

GeoFibre is a naturally derived component that provides rigidity and high tensile strength when added to rods in the lower to mid-price rod band.

For high quality salt water rods, Shimano often select ALPS guides and reel seats. ALPS roller guides have a reputation for excellence which perfectly matches the expectations of Shimano.

The unique SDR construction process eliminates any spine forming during manufacture, meaning the blank action remains uniform, regardless of which way the rod is bent.

FLY

SURF

Shimano High Pressure Carbon is a process which creates stronger, more responsive blanks. Pressure is applied to the blank surface during curing (heating) which evenly distributes the resin through the carbon fibre matrix. The result is a much stronger, more consistent performance and improved responsive.

XT Carbon is used throughout the Shimano rod range. The number following the XT (XT100), denotes the quality of carbon fibre used. The higher the number, the stronger the carbon. Where different types of carbon are combined to create the required action both numbers will be shown (XT60/40).

BOAT

3M™ Powerlux™ Composites is nano-silica-resin technology that enables designers to develop rods that are incredibly strong and durable, and also lighter and more sensitive. Shimano is one of the few companies in the world allowed to use 3M Powerlux.

BX Built using HPC400LRC carbon with added Biofibre 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.

SPECIMEN

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.

The Antares is built on a HPC200 blank with the addition of Biofibre, resulting in a fast, progressive action. The addition of Steady Cast vastly improves casting performance and ensures that your bait can be placed accurately time and time again. Fuji Alconite K-type guides help to ensure smooth, tangle free casting. Rapid heat transfer of the Alconite guides will cope easily with all types of line, giving it a longer lifespan. The natural Power Cork handle ages much slower than standard handles, making sure that the Antares DX maintains its superb performance.

BX 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 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!

DX The progressive action of the Beastmaster helps to ensure easy lure presentation and great control during the fight. A lot of heat can build up on the ceramics whilst battling large predators, and this can damage the line. With the Fuji Improved Hard guides, the level of heat is dramatically reduced, vastly helping to increase the longevity of your mainline and prevent any unnecessary breakages. The optional Balance Weight enables customized rod balancing to suit you preference.

The Antares is built on a fast progressive action blank and the addition of Steady Cast makes sure that excellent casting performance and bait placement can be achieved. The short transport length is ideal for traveling anglers and the rigid hard case tube ensures total protection. The Fuji Alconite K-type guides give excellent line guidance and casting performance for both freshwater and saltwater conditions. The natural Power Cork grip hardly absorbs moisture and therefore ages much slower than standard cork.

Twin Tip With its light tip section fitted, the Beastmaster STC spinning rod measures 2.50m and is a pleasure to use with all small lures in the 7-21g class. With the fast taper tip fitted the 2.00m length has a ‘Medium heavy’ action designed for casting lures in the 1440g class. Also, this shorter, stiffer tip configuration is excellent for working various Jerk and Twitch baits effectively. With plenty of power in the lower sections the Beastmaster Twin Tip Spinning is the ultimate tool for the traveling freshwater lure angler.

TWIN TIP CONCEPT The Beastmaster STC Twintip concept is a versatile, multisectioned range which combines easy transport lengths with a Twintip concept that effectively delivers two rods in one. All models have three common sections (Handle, Butt and Middle) and separate special taper tips. The single fast taper tip fits onto the middle section to produce a shorter more powerful rod, whilst the use of the slow taper tip (plus additional section) produces a longer and more responsive action.

EV The Nasci Bass is a rod specially made for bass fishing. The XT60 carbon blank and advanced taper produces the special fast tip action you need to feel every movement of the lure, the most sensitive takes and enables you to set the hooks with lightening fast speed. Fitted with strong Fuji Alconite guides, suitable for both mono and braid mainline, the Nasci is the perfect starter rod for bass fishing!

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.

Wild Romance Attraction The Wild Romance Attraction rods are designed to cast and work softbaits with full control during dead-drift action. A mixture of HPC300 carbon with Biofibre and Steady Cast technology achieves a fast action with a very sensitive tip and powerful butt section. Sensitivity is further increased by a full set of abrasion resistant, lightweight and tangle-free Fuji alconite K type guides. The outfit is completed by an elegant and strong Fossil Wood reel-seat. 300

Wild Romance Ferociuos Solid The Wild Romance Ferocious Solid has been designed to cast jerkbaits and stickbaits long distance and still animate them with great precision and sensitivity. It is also more than capable of working soft plastic lures effectively as well. During the development stages, everything was considered to provide the best performance and this was achieved using HPC300 carbon mixed with Biofibre. This combination dramatically enhances the strength and also makes the rod much lighter. The addition of Steady Cast technology helps to cut-down on any unwelcome vibration when casting.

Wild Romance Power Game Power Game rods are powerful enough to fish from shore. They can cast a 28g Max Rap a long way and then fight and land large sea bass from rocky shores. Shore fishermen often need to reach a long distance where the predators are situated, and have a long leader for a better presentation of the bait. The distance you will achieve with these rods will definitely let you cover more fish.

Wild Romance Pelagic Offshore

TROUT

Spinning for Bluefin tuna needs a compromise between a soft tip and brute force. Tuna often feed on very small prey (anchovies from 4 to 10cm in length) and do not attack large lures. You will often need to cast a lure less than 40g a long way, and then have enough power to fight one of the strongest fish in the ocean. The Pelagic Offshore rod has been designed specifically to solve this difficult equation, a soft tip to cast a long way and a strong butt to fish with 10kg of drag. This rod is also great for light Tropical fishing with a line rating up to 65lbs.

CARP RODS

INTENSITY VERSIONS

HPC CARBON BLANKS

ANTIWRAP TIP GUIDES

50MM BUTT GUIDES

Any rod that bares the Intensity name is the result of fine tuning the blank in order to achieve the maximum possible casting distance performance. Components and areas of the blank have been stripped of weight to increase tip speed and recovery. Areas that receive critical amounts of pressure are strengthened to tolerate even the most aggressive casting techniques. The result is a finely tuned casting machine.

HPC (High Pressure Carbon) is an exclusive Shimano process which increases blank strength considerably. Pressure is applied to the blank when curing, forcing the resin through the carbon matrix evenly. This reduces weak spots and improves overall strength.

Lightweight Anti-Wrap 16mm Silicone Carbide Tip guides are better for distance casting and fishing in weedy conditions. The reduced weight also improves tip recovery on the cast. Shimano Anti Wrap guides do not have a weld at the back of the frame.

Ultra light 50mm Silicon Carbide guides are available on all Tribal carp, spod and marker rods. This increases casting distance and limits ‘frap-ups’ that can occur when fishing at extreme range. 50mm guides are perfectly suited to Shimano Super Slow oscillation reels.

SAFETY ROD STOPPER

PROTECTIVE LINE CLIPS

STAINLESS STEEL BUTT CAPS

A small abbreviation behind the reel seat locks the rod behind the rear rest ensuring it is not pulled in on a blistering take.

Specially developed ‘soft touch’ line clips are fitted to Tribal rod to ensure that line is never damaged when placed behind the clip.

Across the range certain rods are fitted with Tribal engraved stainless steel butt caps so that they look like new even after years of use.


Ultra A 400

Shimano’s Tribal Ultra range of carp rods are built with no expense spared - these really are the rods for the most serious of carp anglers! There are three models in the range, all of which cover various carp angling situations; from fishing the margins through to fishing at extreme range. The Ultra has been constructed from a high quality HPC400 blank, with 3M Powerlux nano resin technology, and finished with gloss black cosmetics. Add to this an ultra light CI4+ reel seat and the latest Fuji SIC K type guides, and you can tell straight away that these rods have been built to be the ultimate carp fishing tools.

Trotter The Trotter is a fast tapered, well balanced rod which makes float control on rivers much easier than when using shorter Match type rods. 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.

Barbel Multi Classic 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.

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.

Deadbait Classic 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.

Deadbait Distance 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.

Built using HPC200+ Biofibre blanks and a new design profile, the Speedcast Feeder models are stiffer in the butt section than many other rods giving better casting performance, especially in the longer models. Top quality Fuji Alconite guides and Fuji DPS reel seats, combined with great fish-playing actions make this range standout from the crowd. Longer 14’ (4.20m) models have longer handles for more power leverage and large guide quivertips for better line flow. The two multi-length models offer great versatility.

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 in both Speedmaster and Beastmaster which, when assembled at 9’, gives you the perfect rod for 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. The 11’6 model offers that little bit more in terms of casting distance, whilst also having a little bit more in power to cope with bigger Commercial water carp. Put quite simply there’s nothing the 11’6 can’t do.

Heavy - Green With carp getting bigger in Commercial fisheries, no range would be complete without power models and the Beastmaster range doesn’t disappoint with two options. The 12’ Power Float is ideal for everything from large pellet wagglers, splasher wagglers and conventional float work for big carp in the margins. For anglers who want even more power there’s the Beastmaster Bagging Waggler. This power packed 12’ rod can cast 30g floats with ease and control large carp easily, making it the perfect rod for larger waters which contain larger than average carp.

TROUT

The Commercial range of feeder rods with a red band for identification have built up a loyal following. The range starts off with quite possibly the ultimate commercial angler’s tool - the iconic multi length 9’-11’ Feeder available in both Speedmaster and Beastmaster. The 11’6” Feeder in both Speedmaster and Beastmaster has been specifically designed for more casting performance. The 12’6 Beastmaster Distance Feeder has been designed specifically for the long range fishing on man-made ‘Commercial’ waters and combines power with a great playing action.

POLE TECHNOLOGY GLOSSARY Through the application of a unique high grade of carbon, that is lighter yet more resistant to wear and tear than normal woven carbon, Aero Joint boosts the speed of unshipping, reduces the chance of the joint sticking, especially in the wet, and decreases the chance of damage.

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 according to the S.A.S marks you get a stiffer performance.

The perfect matt finish for a pole. The silky smooth surface makes it easier to ship the sections of your pole. Because there’s no sanding process involved, the carbon fibres stay intact and no matt paint is needed, therefore saving weight. In this process a layer is formed on the outer surface, which protects the fibres from damage when scratched.

Available on some 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.
