Shimano Game Type J Fishing Rod for Jigging (Spin models)
One might have thought that we would now be used to such light weight, ultra-thin rods and their jigging capability with huge, backbreaking species such as Tuna and GT’s. When holding a Game Type J Rod in your hand it is very hard to reconcile that you will be pointing this very thin stick at a fish that, given half the chance, would pull you straight out of the boat. The technology invested in the Shimano Game Type J Fishing Rods for Jigging is nothing short of astonishing.
There are 5 spin models of Shimano Type J Spin from which to choose (Each is sold separate so choose which model you require when ordering). Selection will be determined, more or less, by the line class or weight you wish to fish. Each rod is a superb specimen of fishing engineering with High power Spiral X graphite providing a blank of superior power and strength. Each blank is dressed with Custom EVA grips and Fuji K SIC guides. These guys look as amazing as they perform.
We all know how physical jig work can be. The constant lift and drop takes a toll over a long day, add a few fish battles to that and it can be exhausting. The Shimano Type J Fishing Rod goes some way to reducing this fatigue as your super lightweight rod seems to work with you, reducing the effort required to work your jig.
The Shimano Game Type J jigging Spin models are nothing short of awesome. Priced in the top tier, you’ll feel the purchase no doubt. You will promptly forget all about your wallet the moment you hook up and then land your first 30kg GT. Get yours now, you know you want one!
