The Shimano Maikuro rod series is an affordable rod range designed with the intent of providing flagship technologies to even the tightest budgets of Anglers across Australia. The Nano 30 Ton Toray Graphite blank is probably the key feature, providing feel, sensitivity and awesome pulling power which you need, in a cosmetically slick package that will no doubt turn a few jealous heads.
The rock and surf fishing rod models listed below are perfect for casting lures such as metal slices into wave and wash, chasing aggressive surface hunters like Aussie Salmon and Tailor. As most Rock and surf anglers know, long rods will always induce serious fatigue. The Maikuro rock and beach fishing rod range does away with the traditional weighty feel of old school wave rods, taking much of the fatigue out of casting the surf and ocean rocks. This is achieved without any loss in strength and pulling power.
As you might expect, casting manners are exceptional. The medium/fast actions are well supported by the Sea Guides, ensuring line will peal off your spool evenly, without huge amounts of cast killing friction. The butt assembly provides outstanding feel, translating every movement and inquiry directly to the angler. This feedback provides great feedback for timing strikes and adjusting retrieves.
The Maikuro range for rock and surf fishing are strong and robust. These features are critical for the harsh surf and rock environments that are traditionally very hard on all fishing equipment.
Ultimately, the Maikuro is all about top fishing performance for less money. Quality surf and rock kit is traditionally more expensive than the gear for other applications. Shimano have stripped back the cost while providing exceptional technology all anglers can afford. Grab your Maikuro now and hit the rocks and surf for outstanding fishing action.
