Shimano Jewel Rods For Sale
They're back and better than ever. The 2017 release range of Shimano Jewel rods saw some substantial upgrades from Shimano Australia's former model, which was back around 2010-2012. The old model Jewel was tailored explicitly to mostly light coastal style fishing; the 2017 range encompassed a much broader scope to suit a heavier class of fishing both inshore and offshore.
Though, if you want the latest model, now is your chance. The 2021 release is now in stock, replacing the 2017 model with practically identical specifications but an updated cosmetic overhaul that gives the Jewel a fresh new look in black and white finishes.
The new model continues its tradition of being an amazingly priced range of fishing rods sporting a T45 graphite blank and comes complete with Fuji K series guides to suit all the latest and greatest braided fishing lines.
T45 is 36-ton graphite; however, it differs slightly from your usual modern graphite fishing rod constructions. T45 is where graphite tape is taken, rolled at a 45-degree angle, and finished off with reinforcing graphite sheets that are opposing angled. Without getting too technical, this means that your new Jewel fishing rod will be lightweight but built extremely strong.
We have a range of models for sale here at the fishing tackle shop, most tailored to medium to heavier class saltwater fishing styles, both inshore and offshore, built exclusively for Australian fishing conditions.Though, we stock a few in the lighter class too for inshore fishing. We have rods available for tackling snapper or barra, rods for offshore jigging, rods for topwater, and an overhead swimbait rod that will take a large baitcaster reel such as the tranx for targeting murray cod on big lures. You can find out more about each of the Shimano Jewel rods we have for sale below.

Shimano Jewel Fishing Rod Buyers Guide
Fishing Tackle Shop has a range of different Jewel rods for sale, but if you're not sure what each one is about, we've put together an informative breakdown to help you make the right decision and purchase correctly.
Lake and River Options - If you're targeting a light class of freshwater fish or saltwater fish in rivers or lakes, such as bream, whiting or trout, then the best solutions will be models 6102SP, 702SPUL or 701SPL. The 6102SP is the heaviest and most powerful of the three, offering the best results for a broader range of estuarine fish.
Other Inshore Options - Spin Models 702SPM, 722SPMH and 792LC are all good versatile choices that will cover most of your inshore requirements. They are rated slightly heavier than the few rods mentioned above, making them ideal for a larger class of fish found in the estuaries, such as big flathead, perch and Tailor. The 792LC is worth highlighting as it's a long-cast model ideal for throwing soft plastics and blades further than some shorter models for sale in the series. The 792LC also makes an excellent light beach rod.
Heavy Inshore - Light Offshore Spin Options - The Jewel 742SPSWSP 5-10kg is an ideal fishing rod for those who fish for murray cod, barramundi or snapper. It'll ease you into heavier inshore waters but can also be used offshore if needed because it's not too long and has a suitable line rating, so most lighter-class reef species will hook and land easily.
Keeping on the offshore subject line, we also have a range of jigging rods in our Shimano Jewel rods for sale. There are a few spin options as well as overhead options. Whilst they are designed for jigging, they also make an excellent rod for bait fishing the reefs and for a bit of light trolling.
Heavy Shore Spin Or Popper/Stickbait - One rod to consider for heavy shore and rock angling is the Jewel 962 spin rod. This rod is ideal for the angler that wants to throw medium to large metal slices, poppers, surface lures and large plastics off the stones or shorelines.
We have the Jewel Top water models, which will be a popular pick among anglers that fish offshore or from the shoreline with large poppers and stickbaits to target GT, kingfish, queenies other fish that smack the surface.
Swimbait Rods - Last in the lineup separates itself from the rest as it is an overhead baitcaster rod but not any old ordinary baitcast rod; it's designed to throw large lures such as swimbaits for species such as murray cod or barramundi.
- T45 construction rod blank / 36 ton high modulus graphite gives you a rod capable of dishing out some incredible power. Still, in terms of physical weight, it’s light compared to other traditional graphite fishing rods on the market.
- Fuji rod guides ensure that the Jewel rod will be up to take on all the latest fishing braids and monofilaments.
- The price of the new Jewel rod is impressive, and it fits right where it needs to be, a rod that is not too expensive and features a range of technologies that generally cost quite a bit.
After a Jewel of a rod? Make it one of our Shimano Jewel Rods for sale. A brilliant rod for a brilliant price.
