Ensuring your boat is well supplied with quality, performance rods has just got a whole lot more accessible. The new Shimano Maikuro range includes Heavy boat and inshore Spin models priced incredibly low, so you can hit the water with a significantly reduced outlay yet still kit up with outstanding quality.
The range listed below covers inshore heavier fishing for casting lures at big Mulloway, Barra and inshore Snapper, as well as everything you can imagine from the blue water, such as big Kingfish and bottom dwellers like Pearl Perch.
The emphasis on the Maikuro heavy fishing rod range is strength and sensitivity in a lightweight package. This is achieved via the combination of blank and butt assembly. The Nano 30 Ton Toray Graphite provides the foundation, offering power, strength and responsiveness while maintaining the lightweight feel that ultimately mitigates against fatigue. The EVA butt assembly is constructed of natural cork and extra hard EVA. A carbon hooded reel seat locks your favourite fishing reel in place, completing an assembly that is not only incredibly strong but transfers every bump and bite from the business end to the hands of the angler.
In the cosmetic department the Shimano Maikuro Boat Rod models are a real head turner, with modern, slick sports styling that immediately hints at its prowess on the water. This is the sort of boat fishing rod that makes the most weather beaten old boat look like a million bucks.
Ultimately though, the Maikuro is all about exceptional value. Shimano are providing access to flagship technology at an entry level price. These are ideal rods for anglers of all skill levels. While suited to the intermediate, lure casting weekend warriors, the pros will also find a lot to like about the new Shimano Maikuro heavy spinning rods for sale.
