The Shimano Taipan boat fishing rod is back and looking sharper than ever with its brand new look. The Taipan has always been a rod designed for anglers that prefers to cast flesh baits. The action is perfectly suited for fishing baits and therefore ideal for those anglers who steer away from lures in favour of anglers looking for a bait specific rod to keep in the boat when nothing will do but a big chunk of Squid.
Speaking of Squid, the models listed below are Snapper models, and no Snapper worth his salt will turn down a well presented Squid. Either whole or in chunks. The Taipan boat fishing rod is more versatile than simply a stick for poking at Snapper however. Strung up with 10kg line, your 762 can take on a whole world of aggressive beasts, from the bottom to the sub surface fish species. Your 702 is up to the task also, but it really depends on your level of bravery, your class of reel and how long you are prepared to hang on and white knuckle you EVA grips.
The Fuji Hardware looks fantastic and will serve you well when the going gets tough with a heavier class of fish. Durability is a key feature of the Taipan and the integrated fibreglass tip adds a level of protection that even the most accident prone angler will find hard to break.
The Shimano Taipan boat Snapper Rods are a must for the boat and will become a loyal workhorse featuring prominently in many a brag shot.

Fishing Application and Fishing Reel Suggestion Guide
This series of rod is suited to Boat Fishing and especially ideal if your main focus is fishing with bait. In terms of reel choice we suggest using a Shimano 5000-6000 size for the Taipan 702 Snapper model or a 6000-10000 size Shimano Spinning reel for the 762 snapper rod.
The integrated fiberglass tip on the end of the graphite blank provides the novice and intermediate angler with the best of both worlds.
The Taipan action is all about fishing flesh baits making it perfect for the traditionalist or weekend angler that is less inclined toward lure fishing.
