Shimano: Game Type J

Shimano


These fantastic JDM (Japanese Domestic Market) designed jigging rods are going to be a massive hit with jig fishing fans right around the country — whether they’re part of the new micro jigging scene, taking the more traditional approach of banging heavy metal on the heads of Seriola species in cooler waters, or winkling reef dwellers away from coral bommies in the tropics. There are five powerful spin rods and one overhead/baitcaster in this impressive lineup. All are of single-piece construction, rated for use with 1-3 through to 2-5 PE braid depending on the model, so they’re also extremely versatile. These high carbon blanks are incredibly light, yet super strong, which is delivered by a Spiral X and High Power inner and outer weave. Befitting their high performance status, they come fitted with Fuji K series SiC guides with stainless frames for better resistance to the unforgiving saltwater environment, Shimano high-grade reel seats, and custom-shaped hard split EVA grips for greater comfort while working a jig and then when hooked up.
