The Shimano Maikuro Rods Light-med Spin range are yet another example of Shimano bending over backwards to ensure budget driven, novice and intermediate anglers have access to the latest and best technologies. Shimano are also continuing the trend of creating an extensive fishing rod selection within a series to ensure a majority of applications are covered.
Apart from awesome good looks, all of the Shimano Maikuro rods sport Nano 30 Ton Toray Graphite blanks, Guides by Sea guide, including ceramic rings, Carbon Hooded Reel Seats as well as Cork and extra hard EVA in the butt assemblies. In short this translates to a tremendous amount of performance for a very modest outlay.
The Shimano Maikuro Fishing Rods listed below cover a selection of the light to medium rods in the Shimano Maikuro range which are ideal for river, lake and other light styles of fishing be it freshwater or saltwater fishing. They are perfectly engineered for the lure angler to extract the best from lures, both hard body and soft plastic. Casting manners are, as always with Shimano, impeccable
The MK682SP will be ideal for some light near-shore sports work. If you want a little more spool and drag capacity, there are a few reel models that are light enough and compact enough in the 4000 size. (The latest Stradic Ci4 comes to mind). This gives you some pretty hefty strike power for tackling big impoundment and river Barra as well as larger Murray Cod on the inshore grounds as well.
The incredible lightweight feel and strength from the Nano Toray blank combines with super sensitivity. Every touch is transferred to the anglers hand via the natural cork and extra Hard EVA grip. You are never in any doubt as to what is going on beneath the surface, you can feel it.
All of these rods are suited to casting from the banks, but also make great light rods for the boat and Kayak angler wishing to spool up with braid and cast lures of all kinds. Dollar for dollar it doesn’t get better. Purchase one or if your budget allows, why not grab a couple, and really specialise. They’re that affordable.
