Features and Specifications
Model 1062 Shore spin
3.20 metres (10ft 6in)
2 Piece Fishing Rod
Fishing line rating 6-10kg
At 3.2m in length with a line rating of 6-10kg, the Shimano Classix 1062 surf fishing rod is an extremely versatile rod suitable for a myriad of shore based angling styles.
The rod is a 2 piece rod (splits in half) so this benefits the fisherman by being able to transport the fishing rod or store the fishing rod after use with absolute ease.
Cork grips allow the rod to be a little more lightweight overall but most importantly allow for extra sensitivity ensuring that you get to feel each and every bite more efficiently.
Graphite blank ensures that you have a rod that is light weight and responsive.
Zirconium rod guides are great for all types of fishing line but especially important is their durability, If fishing with braided fishing line is your choice of line then Zirconium rod guides will handle the braid with ease.
Target Species & Recommended Usage
The Shimano 1062 Surf spin fishing rods are fantastic fishing rods for spinning for jewfish, or Mulloway, around the ocean rocks. The Classix Shimano 1062 Surf fishing rod also makes a good beach rod for bream, tailor, salmon, smaller jewfish and even whiting making it an extremely versatile fishing rod.
With a lure weight of 10-90g, this is a great value off the shelf rod for spinning the rocks for smaller pelagic fish such as bonito, rat kings, frigate mackerel, salmon, tailor and even spotted mackerel etc, using both metal lures and deep diver fishing lures.
If using this fishing rod for throwing soft plastic fishing lures off the rocks, there is a fine line between a rod that is too short, with the line constantly catching on the rocks, and a rod that is too long and heavy so the graphite construction and 3.2m length of the Shimano Classix Surf fishing rod makes this rod the perfect choice for this style of fishing. The Shimano Starlo Classix Surf rod also has the strength to guide the fish around the bommies, rocks and reefs that are almost mandatory for this style of fishing.
