♦ Fishing line rating 5-10kg

♦ Sea guides
♦ At 2.74m in length with a line rating of 5-10kg, the Shimano Classix Shore spin 902 model 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.
♦ Sea Guide 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 Sea Guides will handle the braid with ease.
The Shimano 902 Shore spin fishing rods are fantastic fishing rods for spinning for Jewfish, or Mulloway, around the ocean rocks. Although traditionally on the short side, the Shimano 902 Shorespin fishing rod also makes a good beach rod for Bream, Tailor, Salmon and smaller Jewfish.
With a lure weight of 15-45g, this is a great value off the shelf rod for spinning the rocks for smaller pelagic fish such as Bonito, rat Kingfish, Frigate Mackerel, Salmon, Tailor, 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 9 foot length of the Shimano Shore spin fishing rod makes this rod the perfect choice for this style of fishing. The Shimano Shore spin fishing rod also has the strength to guide the fish around the bommies, rocks and reefs that are almost mandatory for this style of fishing.
The Shimano 902 Shore spin fishing rod matches up beautifully with reels in 4000-8000 sizes. If you need any further assistance feel welcome to contact us on the details listed on our “contact us” page or use the live support chat facility that we have available.
