Shimano Raider Fishing Rods Light-Med Spin Models
Any angler that hasn’t been asleep for that last decade will know the Ian Miller designed Shimano Raider series. The 2015 release promises a few improvements and style changes but with the continuation of all the same quality build and components you have come to expect. Historically, many have considered the Raider series an entry level rod. Miller himself suggests that with the progression of the series, the Raider is now beyond entry level status and what he would term “your first ‘serious’ rod.” Checking the specs, it’s easy to see where he is coming from. At this price level, this is some serious, quality kit yet very affordable.
The selection in the light/Medium Raider Spin range is extensive. The reason is that each rod is constructed and refined to suit a particular application whether casting at the racks for Bream or casting light, soft plastics for Flathead. Each Raider fishing rod is durable yet very lightweight. 2015 sees the return of Fuji guides and a style makeover that retains the famous bronze colour yet presents a rod that looks like it’s a custom job in the top tier pricing bracket. Grips are Shimano full length cork, with the exception of the 6101 Rod which is split. Cork has a phenomenally sensitive feel. Nothing transmits action at the hook end like cork grips.
The Shimano Raider Fishing Rods, Light-Med Spin Models are priced to get you out on the water experiencing the advantages of fishing with advanced technology. Raider has always been about making the better rod technologies accessible to all anglers. Shimano Raider fishing rods make classy fishing for anglers of all levels. These Millar designs feature in tens of thousands of Aussie boats and Aussie fishing kits. They’re popular for a reason. They are just so darn good and represent outstanding value for money. There are a few from which to choose when ordering, study the specs, and make your choice. At this price, why not grab a couple.
