We can’t give you many reasons why you shouldn’t buy a Tcurve Bluewater spin rod, but we can give you several reasons why you should.
The newly revamped range is relatively light in physical weight but built to the most refined standards for powerful offshore fishing capabilities. Utilising all the latest technologies like TC3 graphite construction and Fuji components the Bluewater range is a series produced for anglers who are or determined to get serious about saltwater offshore boat fishing.
No Compromises – A TC3 blank has used to build these fishing rods. Engineered by weaving three layers of graphite, these rods are incredibly lightweight but also remarkably durable.
Fuji Components – Key to the upgrade of the range has been the addition of brand new Fuji components. The stand-out additions include a Shimano reel seat, K-Series guides, and a soft rubber gimbal.

Shimano Tcurve Bluewater Spin Rods Buyer Guide
Unless you skipped past the features and specifications section, you would know we have a couple of models in the bluewater range to choose.
Your choice predominantly boils down to line class you wish to fish and the classification of fish. The below guide expands more on each model slightly for assisting you to make purchase decisions.
Bluewater 5-10Kg model – makes the ideal light offshore spin stick. However, being 5-10kg rated, it doubles as a perfect heavy inshore spin stick too for use in lakes or rivers for a larger class of fish.
For inshore you may target species such as mangrove jack, queenfish, murray cod or perhaps mulloway. For offshore chasing bonito, salmon, pan reds, flathead and other light to med class fish species on the reefs, gravel or sand.
Bluewater 10-15Kg model – Now we’re starting to talk a general purpose model that will tackle a broad range of fish with ease. Perfect for many offshore applications from surface fishing for kings through to bottom bashing for snapper.
Bluewater 15-24Kg model - Now we’re talking serious tackle. The 15-24kg rated model makes an excellent spin stick for throwing poppers, stick baits and huge plastics at Kings, tuna and a whole lot more. Ideal for southern brutes or as a great barrier reef special.
Don’t limit your self to lures the 15-24kg model is fantastic for bait fishing too. Whatever you fish for offshore the 15-24kg model can handle some serious resistance from a larger class of fish offshore.
King Mack Spin – This is Shimano’s Mackerel and kingfish special. Perfect for use with baits or lures if you fish for kingfish, Spanish, spotted or school mackerel this is one rod worth considering tailored explicitly for this sort of fishing.
Shimano TCurve Bluewater fishing rods feature TC3 Graphite which is 3 ply weave graphite resulting in a fishing rod that is not only lighter in weight but is extra strong and reliable creating a bench mark for performance and durability.
Fuji Alconite K Guides are tangle free robust fishing rod guides that will greatly reduce chance of tangle when casting.
Shimano fossil wood reel seat provides you with a quality corrosion free light weight reel seat that also looks great on the eye.
Extra Firm EVA Grips providing you with a comfortable and durable fishing rod grip.
Fuji soft rubber gimbal on most models is a much more comfortable option than a conventional style gimbal and does not require a cap to cover the gimbal.
