The use of technologically advanced materials is an important motivation in the development of new products and the ultra lightweight Magnumlite rotor is a perfect example of this ethos. Lighter, stronger and better balanced than before, the Magnumlite rotor can be found on the awardwinning Twin Power XD. The new larger reel models, specifically designed for carp and surfcasting, all feature Super Slow Oscillation, which is now firmly established as the leading line lay technology for extra long casting performance, as well as Parallel Body which perfectly aligns the line with the rod during the cast. Shimano’s unique Hagane concept has now been introduced onto more models, including the Sedona FI series, which makes this model an outstanding choice in its price range and is sure to impress all who use them. Many of the new rods now feature the exclusive Spiral X and Hi-Power X carbon technology developed in Japan by Shimano. These advanced features improve strength, lightness and the dynamic performance of the rod, resulting in increased fishing performance. You can now find

this advanced technology in many ranges, from lightweight spinning through to long range carp and surfcasting models. The clothing range for Spring/Summer 2018 contains exciting products that fit all anglers’ requirements, whilst the luggage range presents the very best of the Shimano’s worldwide range and our mono range continues to increase in popularity as more anglers become aware of the high quality performance. Finally, towards the back of the catalogue you will find a selection of G.Loomis rods.

REEL TECHNOLOGY EXPLAINED

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.

GEARING AND BEARINGS

MATERIALS

LINE LAY AND LINE MANAGEMENT

MAGNESIUM The HAGANE Drive Gear is produced by Shimano’s cold forging technology, without the need for additional machining. This delivers a long lasting smoothness, strength, lightness and power at the very heart of the reel.

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.

ALUMINIUM Shimano uses aluminium in many different forms.

X Aero Wrap 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. X Aero Wrap is considered one of the best line lay systems in the world.

Diecast aluminium is used for many types of reel and is most common on fixed spool reel bodies and rotors. 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.

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.

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

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.

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.

HYPERGEAR 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.

Machined aluminum is used for the very best multiplier reels where precision, strength and lightness are very important.

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.

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 mid-priced Shimano reels.

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.

XGT-7

Slow Oscillation - the spool moves slowly allowing more line wraps per cycle.

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.

Super Slow Oscillation - the spool moves very slowly forming almost parallel wraps of line.

XT-7 Easy Maintenance is a small oil lubrication port that enables direct lubrication of the inner workings of a reel with approved Shimano lubricant. Some high-end Shimano reels have a line roller lubrication option.

01_Consumer2018_02-09_Intro_Reels Intro.indd 5

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.

TECHNOLOGY MICROMODULE GEAR HAS SUPER-REFINED TEETH FOR ULTRA SMOOTH TRANSMISSION. X-SHIP CREATES A STRONG GEARING FOUNDATION TO COPE WITH EXTREME PRESSURE.

HAGANE BODY PROVIDES HIGHLY DURABLE PROTECTION FOR INTERNAL COMPONENTS.

HAGANE GEAR IS PRECISION COLD-FORGED FOR SMOOTHNESS AND IMMENSE STRENGTH.

OUR GOAL ETERNALLY SMOOTH REELING HAGANE is Shimano’s reel design concept which aims at ‘eternally smooth reeling’. We’ve taken our unique metalworking technology, including precision cold forging, to extreme levels in pursuit of the reels that only we can produce. Shimano reels, with their impressive smoothness and overwhelming strength, backed by the HAGANE Concept, have been the favourites of discerning anglers for years. The more you use it, the more you realize the value of HAGANE. These reels truly reflect Shimano’s unflinching determination and commitment to excellence.

REEL TECHNOLOGY EXPLAINED

Parallel Body is a new feature that is designed to improve dynamic line flow from the reel to the first guide. On many reels the spool is aligned slightly upwards towards the rod blank, but with Parallel Body it is at exactly 90° to the blank. The result is less line slap the blank as it travels towards the first guide during casting.

OSCILLATION NOBODY DOES IT LIKE SHIMANO

Slower spool oscillation reduces the speed the line travels up and down the spool on the cast. This results less friction as line leaves the spool and reduced drag on the lead, which improves casting distance and accuracy. SHIMANO STANDARD Oscillation (up to 20 wraps per cycle) outperforms the industry standard. SHIMANO SLOW OSCILLATING (up to 40 wraps per cycle) exceeds almost anything else ever seen. Shimano now has two SUPER SLOW OSCILLATION systems - SUPER SLOW 5 (55 wraps) and SUPER SLOW 10 (105 wraps).

THE FUTURE IS HERE... MAGNUMLITE ROTOR Design evolution delivers a new level of lightweight performance. ROTATION INERTIA REDUCED BY 14%. QUICKRESPONSE HAS BECOME EVER SHARPER. OLD

NEW

Redesigned Magnumlite Rotor now has the bail arm mechanism on the opposite side to the line roller for improved balance and lighter overall weight.

STIFF AND STRONG. ROTOR RIGIDITY IMPROVED BY UP TO 30%. The rotor rigidity on line roller side is also an important factor, which can effect drag performance. The newly developed Magnumlite Rotor offers excellent rigidity with up to 30% less deflection under maximum pressure.

Developed to shift the reel’s centre of gravity closer to the rod. This has been achieved by moving the worm shaft oscillation mechanism 19mm from the bottom of the reel to the top. By moving the centre of gravity closer to the anglers hand position, the G Free Body helps to reduce fatigue and enhance casting comfort.

WATER RESISTANT ROTOR PROTECTION FOR EXTREME SALTWATER CONDITIONS X PROTECT is a three-lipped rubber seal system which is designed to keep low pressure water out of the reel. The grease between the second and third lips resists high pressure water. Besides the rubber seals, a labyrinth construction is added in order to make it water proof for a much longer time. All of this does not effect the smooth rotor rotation or line roller performance. X PROTECT seals the roller clutch (which is the optimal location for protection) and line roller to prevent water intrusion. This advanced protection technology increases the durability of the reel and gives a high level protection in even the thoughest conditions. This insures a good reel performance for a long time, without effecting the smoothness of the reel.

The concept is simple... to provide water resistance without creating a heavy rotation feeling. There are three key areas of the reel that require protection; the roller clutch, the body and the line roller. 1. The Drag Area: This is the most critical area when it comes to balancing water resistance and performance. In order to achieve water resistance without damaging the light and smooth rotation, a surface protection coating that causes water to bead on the surface has been added. This beading action prevents water from flowing into the small crevices where mechanisms align. 2. The Body Area: To protect the body, COREPROTECT utilizes a series of 12 different seals and a flat body joint with surface treatment. The anti-reverse switch has also been removed from the body in order to enhance protection. 3. The Line Roller: The new 2014 Stella line roller is a sealed one piece design that provides water resistance and low maintenance. The sealed design does not require oil as part of regular maintenance.

CI4+ - THE FIRST CHOICE FOR LIGHTNESS By using ultra lightweight Ci4+ composite (exclusive to Shimano) in our reel designs, we have pushed the boundaries lightness to new heights. Our ultralight Ci4+ spinning reels (Vanquish, Twinpower XD, Sustain, Stradic) and the Ci4+ casting reels (Metanium MGL, Chronarch MGL, Aldebaran BFS XG) define a new standard. Shimano has good reasons for providing you with super lightweight reels. Less weight means a total focus on your fishing, in fact you hardly notice the weight of the reel when fishing. In combination with lightweight rods they become part of your body and allow full concentration, even at the end of a long fishing session. This in turn provides you with more casting power for longer casts, plus a much better feeling for the movements of your lure, an extremely enhanced bite detection, even of short strikers or clever trophy fish and overall much more fun. Furthermore our lightweight reels are the perfect match to our JDM rods, such as Expride, Zodias or Sustain AX. With Ci4+ reel seats, premium micro guide systems and extremely lightweight, but powerful, Spiral X and Hi-Power X technology, these rods create an ‘ultra-light feeling’, even when using a MH or H models.

REAR DRAG REELS

THE POSITION OF THE DRAG ADJUSTMENT KNOB IS AT THE REAR OF THE REEL MAKING IT EASY TO ADJUST, EVEN WHEN FISHING.

29

REAR DRAG REELS For all-round fishing (float, feeder, lure) rear drag reels offer great versatility. The position of the drag adjustment knob is at the rear of the reel making it easy to adjust, even when fishing. Also, many Shimano rear drag reels have Fightin’ Drag which makes it even easier to adjust the drag setting when playing a fish. All Shimano rear drag reels have quick change ‘push-button’ spools which enable the spool to be changed without adjusting the drag setting and feature an AR-C front lip for improved casting and the reduction of tangles.

RA • Ultra lightweight Ci4+ body material delivers outstanding weight reduction • Shimano’s famous quick adjustment Fightin’ Drag allows easy drag adjustments whilst playing fish • 2500 size has high gear 6.0:1 retrieve • Aero Wrap for improved line lay • Cold forged aluminium spare spool

REAR DRAG REELS

FIGHTIN’ DRAG The Fightin’ Drag allows you to quickly adjust the drag tension, with a minimal amount of clicks during the fight. This is especially important when the drag has not been set correctly and line is nearing the breaking point, or you need to put more pressure on the fish. One of the most reliable ways to set the drag of a reel with Fightin’ Drag is to set the Fightin’ Drag lever to its maximum setting, and then adjust the rear drag to the breaking strength of the line. Then move the Fightin’ Drag lever back to its central position. Now you can be sure that even when the Fightin’ Drag is applied to the maximum setting the line will not break. Another advantage is that by moving the Fightin’ Drag lever to its minimum setting it can produce a semi free spool to prevent breakages on the take.

The Fightin’ Drag allows you to quickly adjust the drag tension, with a minimal amount of clicks during the fight

GTM-RC • A classic Shimano reel that has established an enviable reputation for its looks, quality and performance • GTM reels have a super-fast retrieve ratio of 6.0:1 or 5.8:1 • Shimano’s famous quick adjustment Fightin’ Drag allows increase or decrease of the drag instantly • Pearl-white XT-7 body, rotor and double handle complimented by an AR-C Cold Forged aluminium spool • 3000S and 4000S sized reels have shallow spools and shallow spare spools

BAITRUNNER® X-AERO... THE EVOLUTION CONTINUES For over 30 years Shimano Baitrunner® has dominated the free-spool reel market. Since their launch in the 1980s, Baitrunner® reels have been continuously improved and developed. The latest Baitrunner® evolution take a giant leap forward with the launch of the Baitrunner® X-Aero models. These reels combine the traditional simplicity of the rear Baitrunner® freespool leaver, with a much larger ‘Aero Concept’ spool.

8000 STANDARD SPOOL

The result of this evolution is noticeably better casting performance, nearly matching that of some Big Pit type models and even better fish-playing drag performance. Baitrunner® X-Aero reels are available in both large sized rear drag and smaller front drag versions.

A BALANCED SET-UP It’s a fact that a more compact, well-balanced set up gives the angler complete control over their quarry during the fight. A Baitrunner® combined with a lighter rod offers the angler better control when netting and playing fish and lowers the chance of hook-pulls, they also improve accuracy at short range or when fishing to tight features. The Baitrunner® range is the perfect choice when it comes to the task, but they also offer simplicity in the form of the freespool mechanism, delivering instant contact with the fish on a turn of the handle. Don’t be fooled into thinking these reels are just for smaller fish, far from it, they will handle and have landed carp of record proportions with ease over the years, which is why it is still a reel that experienced anglers will keep in their armoury. They are perfect on most small and medium sized waters where a bigger pit reel is just too much firepower. The clutches are like silk, and the smaller handle combined with the correct test curve rod means you will not only have the advantage, but you’ll have a lot more finesse and enjoyment whilst doing so.

MINI BAITRUNNER® REEL... SMALL IN SIZE, BIG IN VERSATILITY Mini Baitrunner® reels have become a firm favourite of feeder and specialist anglers over the last few years. The small 2500 and 4000 sizes match perfectly to almost all feeder rods and also lighter specimen and barbel rods. For many anglers fishing Commercial venues for small and medium sized carp, the Mini Baitrunner ® reels are the first choice reel because of the Baitrunner ® free-spool facility. When engaged it is almost impossible to get broken when a fish takes the bait. This is especially important when Method feeder or bolt rig fishing which often results in savage bites. For specialist anglers fishing for powerful species like barbel and tench the same applies. Bolt rigs can be safely used, even at close range, which can be a big problem when using a normal type reel without a free-spool facility. For predator anglers fishing with deadbaits, the Baitrunner® free-spool lets the fish pick up the bait and run for a few metres without resistance. The result is more successful hooking and less dropped runs. Mini Baitrunner ® reels may be small in size, but they are perfect performers for many types of fishing.

BIG PIT / SURF REELS

LONG RANGE CASTING TECHNOLOGY Parallel Body is a new feature that is designed to improve dynamic line flow from the reel to the first guide. On many reels the spool is aligned slightly upwards towards the rod blank, but with Parallel Body it is at exactly 90° to the blank. The result is less line slap the blank as it travels towards the first guide during casting.

THE COMBINATION OF SLOW OR SUPER SLOW OSCILLATION AND PARALLEL BODY OFFERS THE ULTIMATE IN DISTANCE CASTING PERFORMANCE.

LONG RANGE CASTING REELS On larger waters, where casting distance is essential, using the correct reel is almost as important as using the correct rod. Shimano Big Pit/Surfcasting reels, with Slow Oscillation, Super Slow Oscillation and the new Parallel Body design add noticeable casting distance compared to other reels of the same size. Slow line oscillation wraps the line onto the spool in a more organised way, with the coils of line laying closer to the next one on the spool. This means that during the cast the line flows off the reel much more smoothly, reducing friction to a minimum and producing more efficient casting performance. On Parallel Body design reels the body of the reel is parallel to the blank of the rod, rather than the reel tilting slightly towards the rod. When casting, the line flowing off the spool is directly in line with the butt guide resulting in less line slap on the blank and reduced friction enabling long effortless casts with less problems. The combination of Slow or Super Slow Oscillation and Parallel Body offers the ultimate in distance casting performance.

BIG PIT / SURF REELS

OSCILLATION NOBODY DOES IT LIKE SHIMANO

Slower spool oscillation reduces the speed the line travels up and down the spool on the cast. This results less friction as line leaves the spool and reduced drag on the lead, which improves casting distance and accuracy. SHIMANO STANDARD Oscillation (up to 20 wraps per cycle) outperforms the industry standard. SHIMANO SLOW OSCILLATING (up to 40 wraps per cycle) exceeds almost anything else ever seen. Shimano now has two SUPER SLOW OSCILLATION systems - SUPER SLOW 5 (55 wraps) and SUPER SLOW 10 (105 wraps).

Saltwater can be extremely severe and damaging to todays tackle, even the slightest amount can cause serious performance issues and damage to the internal workings of a reel.

21

At Shimano we have invested a lot in to research and development, in order to produce the most effective water resistancy possible, without lowering performance.

HIGHLY DURABLE COLD-FORGED ALUMINUM DRIVE GEAR

THE EMBODIMENT OF SMOOTHNES

EXTREMELY RIGID BODY FOR GREATER EFFICIENCY

The HAGANE Drive Gear is produced by Shimano’s cold forging technology, without the need for additional machining. This delivers a long lasting smoothness, strength, lightness and power at the very heart of the reel. Traditional die-cast, machined gears are less durable under heavy loads.

X-SHIP is the perfect alignment of the drive and pinion gear. This improves efficiency and increases the cranking power. Their are two ball bearings for additional support on both sides of the pinion gear which keeps the rotation of the rotor stable and delivers outstanding smoothness.

The HAGANE Body is produced from high rigidity aluminium or magnesium. This creates stiffness and impact resistance, whilst at the same time eliminating flexing of the body. The result is a rock-solid housing and support for the moving internal gearing and greater efficiency throughout the reel.

LIGHTWEIGHT SALTWATER SPINNING IS A GREAT CHALLENGE FOR THE ANGLER AND ONE OF THE MOST FISHED FOR SPECIES IS THE SEA BASS.

75

SEA BASS SPINNING Aggressive feeders, Sea Bass can often be caught close to shore and the explosive action tests light tackle to the maximum. A small 4000 or 5000 Shimano SW reel, loaded with Power Pro braid, a mono leader and combined with a 2.7m or 3.0m Heavy or Extra Heavy Spinning rod is a versatile set up. For lures choose from the slim profile Rapala models that replicate bait fish. Floating, poping or shallow diving models in silver, blue or red head colours are all successful and will stimulate the fish to attack with huge aggression.

SW-A • X-Ship gearing for maximum winding power and efficiency • Screw in machined aluminium handle delivers extra cranking power • Aero Wrap line lay and AR-C lightweight spool for outstanding casting performance • Strong one piece bail for fail-safe line pick-up • Round handles on the 4000 and 5000 sizes, egg shaped handles on the 8000 and 1000 sizes

UNEQUALLED PERFORMANCE

Shimano multiplier reels are some of the most efficient, well designed models available and the wide range ensures that there is a model to suit your needs where ever you fish in the world. Outstanding lightweight models with graphite bodies like TLD, Tyrnos or Torium are perfect for slow or fast trolling using stand-up rods. Their sensitive drags have ideal, versatile gear ratios and are suitable for all sizes of fish. Shimano design engineers use top-end technologies and outstanding engineering to produce unequalled mechanical performance. Tiagra, for example, has become the industry standard for performance worldwide. Strong, efficient and visually stunning, most professional trolling guides and high quality sport fishing boats use Tiagra. The quality of the bearings and gears are very accurate and designed to withstand continuous use in the most demanding situations. The machined one-piece aluminum body has a very efficient drag and the larger 80lb and 130lb models are able to control the biggest marlin and tuna. I have trusted Shimano multiplier reels for more than 25 years and have total confidence in all of the models available, which is why I always recommend them to my clients.

ROD TECHNOLOGY

Blank Construction

Many Shimano rods make use of exclusive carbon technology to achieve lighter, stronger, more responsive rods. This delivers improved performance, which leads to more enjoyment, and ultimately more fish. Two of the main technologies are Spiral X and Hi-Power X construction.

Spiral X

Outer Layer Shimano infinity carbon tape

Middle Layer Longitudinal carbon fibre sheet

Inner Layer Shimano infinity carbon tape

Outer Layer Shimano infinity carbon tape

Hi-Power X

Base Layer Longitudinal carbon fibre sheet

ROD TECHNOLOGY

Spiral X construction consists of three layers: a blank made of vertical fibers, an inner layer, and an outer layer both comprised of carbon tape that tightly winds the blank diagonally in opposite directions. By using this carbon tape in place of a conventional horizontal fiber sheet, Spiral X achieves enhanced torsional rigidity without adding extra weight. This in turn facilitates instant power transmission for precise casting and fighting fish. Through its exclusive lightweight structure, Shimano’s Spiral X construction enhances anglers’ “catching power.”

In Hi-Power X construction, the blank’s outermost layer is diagonally wrapped with carbon tape, which forms an array of “X” shapes. The width of the tape, its winding angle and the part of the rod being wrapped are fine-tuned according to the target fish species. The flexibility allows Shimano to adjust these wraps during construction for precise actions, enhanced overall strength and added twist resistance. In short, Hi-Power X construction delivers sharp and crisp rod control by the angler.

Taftec

Softube Top

Shimano Softube Top provides the sensitivity of an ultra fine solid carbon tip with the lightness of a hollow construction. Softube Top construction can be found on models where sensitivity and finesse are both important requirements. The smooth, seamless action of Softube Top offers the angler an unrivalled experience for bite detection and fish-playing performance.

10_Consumer2018_88-99_Rods.indd 90

Traditionally, solid carbon tips are made by forming carbon fibre cloth into a solid cylindrical carbon fibre bar, which is then ground to a tapered profile to make the tip. Because the fibres in the carbon cloth are multi-directional they become damaged during the surface grinding process which can weaken the final tip and give inconsistent results. Shimano TAFTEC tips utilise a pre-stretched T-3500 directional yarn fibre with low resin saturation. This directional alignment of the fibres results in much less damage during the grinding process and results is a spineless construction which tests have shown to be much stronger, lower in weight, faster in action and more sensitive. TAFTEC tips are used throughout the Shimano rod range where sensitivity is an important requirement of the the rod.

CI4+

Shimano develop a wide range of reel seat designs to match the rod on which they are applied. Some of the more specialised reel seats incorporate the use of CI4 and CI4+ carbon. CI4 is over 20% lighter and 1.6 times stronger than conventional polymers, with CI4+ being a technical advancement of CI4 which offers even more strength. This exclusive material allows Shimano to make ultra light reel seats, whilst maintaining the maximum strength.

ROD TECHNOLOGY

Carbon Monocoque

Among many rod parts, rear grip never have tiny roll in order to catch and transfer delicate and varied information from underwater in an accurate manner. Carbon Monocoque grip pursued unprecedented light weight through integrated design by carbon material and hollow structure. As a result, it increases sensibility and succeeds to offer excellent transfer of vibration.

Rod Materials

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 response.

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.

XT CARBON 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).

Rod Components 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

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.

Steady Cast is a production process which produces a spineless blank construction that eliminates sideward vibrations during the cast. This results in less friction and better casting performance.

Twist-Control is an anti-twist blank construction process which is a big benefit when fighting huge fish with big game rods. Adding Biofibre reinforces the carbon fibres in all directions. This gives outstanding strength, shock resistance, lightness and power.

Muscle Loop is formed using a spiral carbon tape wrapped on the outside of the blank which improves the strength of the rod blank and prevents the blank from distorting under pressure. 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. S.A.S. is a system to optimise blank action. During the production process the spine of the blank is marked. When assembling the parts according to the marks a constant action is achieved.

THE CORRECT ACTION FOR HARDBAITS With the expanding ranges of the hard lure producers, more and more anglers are exploring the world of twitchbaits, crankbaits, jerkbaits, stickbaits, countdowns, rip baits, floaters, deep divers etc. All of these lures open the door to any depth or structure and enable the skilled angler to respond to any mood of the predator – be it highly aggressive or totally inactive. In order to fish the huge array of different baits effectively you need special rods. For example a crankbait demands a softer and slower blank because of the linear retrieve and the vibration caused by the broad lip of the lure. On the other hand a jerkbait has to be pulled erratically through the water, which is only possible with a stiff fast actioned rod. Generally short handles are perfect for the use of hard lures because they give you enough freedom to manipulate the baits properly. In nearly all of our rod ranges you will find rods perfectly suited for the different hard lure types available.

SUPER SENSITIVE SPINNING RODS

Ultra-light fishing gets more and more popular as each year passes. Not only do street-fishing anglers recognise the effectiveness of advanced methods like Dropshot, Texas rigs, super-slim softbaits, suspending twitchbaits or ultralight cranks in combination with thin lines and ultra-light tackle. Now all anglers are aware of the benefits of ultra-light fishing, especially on pressured waters. For them it means more fun, harder fights with smaller fish, a high frequency bite rate and a lot of playing. Shimano supports those anglers with super lightweight reels which are small, but retrieve a lot of line per turn. We also offer super-slim lines – braid, mono or fluorocarbon – and a huge range of rods weighing less than 100 grams. All those L, UL or ULS models mean more fun while fishing. For fisherman who want to go one step further, we have developed super sensitive rods at different price levels. Our super sensitive rods will cast even smallest weights an impressive distance and the sensitive tip enables the fish to inhale the bait without resistance, resulting in a higher catch ratio. Furthermore super sensitive rods absorb the first pressure, so you can set the hook without fear of line break or hook pulls.

Twin-tip Concept The Beastmaster STC Twin-tip concept is a versatile, multi-sectioned range which combines easy transport lengths with a Twin-tip 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.

YASEI - BORN TO BE WILD The word ‘Yasei’ means wild in Japanese and perfectly describes not only the majority of the waters anglers fish, but also the fish we target within them. The aim of the Yasei concept is to provide all anglers, of different abilities and disciplines, with a specifically designed rod for whatever their chosen style of lure fishing. A rod range for specialists and special disciplines. No matter if you are a finesse expert targeting perch and trout, or a pike angler willing to cast large lures in order to catch your fish, you will find the right rod within the Yasei range. Dropshot, worm, vertical, hardbait, casting, creek, river and salt water models for trout, perch, asp, zander, pike or sea bass are all available. Choose out of two ranges that vary in design (white or red), features and price.

TRIBAL TX - RODS FOR ALL Within the Tribal rod range there is something for every carp angler. Whether you’re looking to cast huge distances with ease, mid-range with pinpoint accuracy or at close range with stealth, you’ll find a Tribal TX rod to suit your style and budget. There are also designated Spod and Marker rods that complement the TX range by using the same understated cosmetics, so for all the anglers who like the same look for all of their hardware, the TX range has it all. There are a variety of models in the range, from the high performance TX Ultra and TX9, which have outstanding casting performance to the amazing value TX1 which looks every bit as good as rods costing twice the price and performs like them too. Also worth a look are the newly added TX7 series and TX4 series, both high contenders for 2018! Shimano have made huge in-roads into the carp rod market over the last few years and is now a major player on performance, price and the quality of the components used in their manufacture.

SPECIMEN RODS

THE BARBEL REVOLUTION More and more anglers are discovering the excitement of barbel fishing. The rod wrenching bite, the powerful fight and ultimately the sight of your prize laying in the bottom of the landing net. In the UK many barbel rivers are quite small and light test curve rods will cope with almost anything you hook, but for larger rivers you need more power and strength. Barbel rivers often vary in pace from slow to very fast. Always use a quivertip that is stiff enough to cope with the flow, or fish with the standard ‘Avon’ type top section with no quivertip. Barbel bites are nearly always fast and strong and spotting a bite is rarely a problem. For slower rivers the Classic (CL) barbel rods are fine, for larger more powerful rivers choose the Power (P) versions.

AX BARBEL • XT30 carbon + Geofibre blank • Two sectioned design for easy made-up transport • Classic version features a 1.5lb Avon top and a quiver top with three interchangeable quiver tips • Power version has a heavier 1.75lb Avon top and a quiver top with three interchangeable quiver tips • Secure hooded reel seat and Shimano Hardlite guides with double leg intermediates for strength

FEEDER RODS

PRECISION AND LONG CAST ROD ACTIONS Speedcast, Super Ultegra,Beastmaster and Aernos Feeder rods are available in two different actions to suit the range you are fishing to. For close to medium range feeder fishing up to 50 metres, the shorter Precision action models ensure your casts will land with pin-point accuracy. For longer range fishing the Longcast action will send your feeder into the distance with ease, thanks to the extra power in the lower half of the rod and the increased length. Longcast rods also have large quivertip guides to reduce friction and prevent shock-leader knots from catching on the cast. For even longer distance casting match the Longcast rods with either Aero reels (70m) or the compact size (5500) Ultegra ‘Big Pit’ reels (100m+).

Speedcast Feeder comes with two different actions - Precision and Longcast to cover all of your requirements 14_Consumer2018_132-145_Rods.indd 136

FEEDER RODS

WINKLE PICKERS GET CONTROL OF YOUR FEEDER FISHING Holland is home of the Winkle Picker and was designed for bream fishing at close to medium range with small and medium groundbait feeders. The principle behind the Winkle Picker is very simple, the short length, combined with strength in the lower part of the rod, casts medium feeders with lots of control and accuracy. The ultra fine quivertips are designed for maximum bite detection. Winkle Pickers also make excellent rods for larger than average carp on Commercial waters, where the extra strength in the butt section gives great fish-playing control.

COMMERCIAL RODS

CARPODROME - USE THE RIGHT ROD The Shimano Commercial Range of tackle has been specifically developed to suit the needs of the vast choice of commercial approaches and techniques. With thousands of commercial fisheries throughout Europe, the need to supply a wide variation of tackle to cover every eventuality you may be faced with on these exciting venues is paramount. From small intimate waters to large open water venues, Shimano have put a great deal of time into developing tackle in conjunction with their Commercial pro staff to ensure the products are suited perfectly for the wide variety of commercial fishing situations. On a lot of commercial venues, small to medium size carp are the main target and with this in mind we’ve designed a well-balanced variation of different length rods to suit not only the distance you may be fishing, but more importantly the size of fish you are targeting. A soft progressive rod action is paramount in order to minimise any hook pulls, especially when light lines and small hooks are the way forward to reap maximum enjoyment and in return receive more bites. For this reason all our rods, regardless of the price budget, have been developed with an extra forgiving action that handless perfectly all sizes of commercial carp, and skimmer bream too! In conjunction with the same thought process of rod development, we’ve also invested a great deal of time to the design of match reels that blend in perfectly with the rods to create the ultimate balanced set up.

Fishing with telescopic rods has spread across Europe, with the use of various different techniques, and Shimano has the right tool for each of them. From the traditional Bolognese models, to the models designed to combat giant catfish, everyone can find his ideal rod in the Shimano range. The Shimano Bolognese rods are designed to be lightweight, well balanced and durable, with high quality fittings, modern cosmetics and advanced production technologies which create fantastic actions. This type of rod can be used in both freshwater and the sea, where they display the best of quality construction. Shimano Bolognese rods are divided into ranges by action strength. The low numbers are lighter than the larger options. For example a TE4 model has a softer action thank a TE7 model, this enable you to make a considered and accurate choice when choosing a rod to suit your preference.

TELESCOPIC TROUT RODS

TROUT FISHING IN EUROPE Trout are a fascinating species that can be caught using many methods. Using a spinning rod and small lures in lakes and rivers, or fishing for sea trout on the banks of the Baltic sea, the methods available to the angler are endless. In recent years the Tremarella technique at ‘Put and Take’ lakes has also become increasingly popular in Europe. Fishing for sea trout, brown trout or rainbow trout requires different kinds of rods in order to present the wide range of lures in the best way. Shimano has a great variety of different rods, for all kinds of trout fishing, in a wide range of price categories to ensure that no matter what your preferred method or budget, there is model that is perfect for your requirements.

LIGHTWEIGHT SALTWATER SPINNING

Spinning for saltwater species is increasing in popularity around the coasts and harbours of the UK. With more knowledge of techniques and a larger choice of lures and tackle to use, lightweight saltwater spinning is becoming the first choice for many anglers targeting Sea bass, Wrasse, mackerel and other coastal species. Shimano has a wide range of rod choices for the dedicated angler, from the high end Coltsniper and Blue Romance models through to the very affordable Vengeance Sea Bass. All of the rods are designed to cope with the corrosive effects of fishing in saltwater, and have the strength to not only cast lures accurately over long distances, but the strength to control hard fighting fish.

SURF RODS

SURF CASTING Surfcasting is not only becoming more and more popular, but also increasingly more specialised. Serious anglers tend to fish lighter and at longer distances, in an effort to reach the feeding fish. They also need slim and sensitive rods to maximise casting distance and bite detection. Shimano rods are designed to satisfy the needs of modern anglers. Long casting is the key to finding the fish on many shallow beaches, and by combining a Shimano surf rod with a large sized Shimano fixed spool reel you have the ultimate casting combination. For 2018, our engineers have developed even more specialised rods than before. The top of the range Surf Leader Ultra generates amazing power and is fitted with the best components and technologies to help you to cast further. They are also designed to be comfortable, so that continual casting is not a problem.

The Organised Compact Design system allows the angler to choose from numerous specialised accessory cases that fit, jigsaw-like into one of the many compatible carryalls. This keeps storage versatile and endlessly customisable to suit all requirements and preferences.

The Duralast Zippers can handle the most extreme abuse to ensure the comprehensive Shimano luggage lives up to the expectations of the most demanding anglers. Duralast Zippers have been thoroughly tested for strength and ease of use.

The Aero Quiver system is based around an adjustable strap that components can be clipped on to. This offers countless variations, giving the angler the option to take as little or much tackle as they wish for each session.

Power Stitching is widely used throughout the Shimano luggage range. This involves double stitched seams which produce increased strength at all the major stress areas ensuring longevity and reducing the chance of failure.
