Shimano Taipan Fishing Rods (Light-Med Spin Series – suitable for lakes, rivers & other light fishing)
The Shimano Taipan Light-Med Spin Series has hit the market after a cosmetic makeover and it is looking sizzling hot. Performance is equally impressive. The Taipan fishing rid retains the classic action it was born with, which is ideally suited to the bait angler. The integrated fibreglass tip combines perfectly with the graphite blank. While perfect for fishing flesh baits, this blank configuration makes the rod an ideal selection for the novice and intermediate angler not completely comfortable with behaviour of full graphite. For the rough angler, tough on gear the Shimano Taipan rod is nigh on essential.
The 602SP will be an ideal selection for the lakes and rivers, hunting everything from flathead, Whiting, and Bream in the salt, to trout and Bass in the fresh. The 602MSP and the 682SP are ideal for larger species in the inshore saltwater, and goes well pointed at Murray cod in the fresh.
The Shimano Taipan Light-Med Spin Series is in every way a performance rod designed for the average weekend angler looking to fish in class and style. From your boat, kayak or on the land Shimano Taipan Light-Med Spin Series is very hard to beat in its class.
