Shimano being world leaders in fishing rod and reel design understand one thing or two about the average angler and that is… not always can one afford the best of the best. However they understand that an angler still needs to have a quality rod at an affordable price. They understand that the angler wants a rod that is responsive, light weight and able to impart actions to your lures that assist in catching more fish and that’s where the Shimano Catana 902 Shore Spin Rod comes in.
The all new 2016 release model of the Catana 902 Shorespin is a very impressive looking 2 piece 9 foot fishing rod constructed with quality components. Built on a graphite blank this rod has the ability to give you sensitivity as your hardbody or spinning lures scream through the water giving you the extra feel you need to detect strikes and set your hooks.
Catana Shorespin rods are designed for tossing lures. Specifically metal slices, hardbody divers, surface poppers, big blades and the likes and which have weights between 10-45 grams. Use your Catana Shore Spin rod for targeting species like bonito, Australian salmon, kingfish and more off your local rock platform or use it as a short beach rod for targeting Bream, whiting or dart off your nearest sheltered beach with a little bit of bait. You could even take the shorespin to the local harbour or lake to have a quick flick.
