Types of Shimano Rods

Aug 7, 2008
What are the different types of fishing rods?

The basic design of every fishing rod is the same. It essentially consists of a long, flexible pole with a line and hook at one end. Modern day fishing rods also have a complex arrangement of a fishing reel with a line wound around the spool. The release of the fishing line is usually governed by a button, or a similar system, and there are levers provided for retrieval.

Different kinds of fishing activities require different kinds of fishing rods. Lets us look at some of the most popular types of Shimano rods and their use in recreational fishing.

Shimano Compre

The Compre series of Shimano rods are the flagship rods of the Shimano group. These Shimano rods offer the best value for money out of all the contenders in the market. Shimano Compre rods make use of high quality components and feature the innovative Fuji Guide Concept system. These Shimano rods are distinguished by their superb finish and attention to detail including cork butt caps and gold inserts.

The Compre rods have been specially engineered to weigh considerably less than similar rods in the market. These lightweight fishing rods are also highly responsive and sensitive thanks to the use of IM8 graphite. Shimano Compre rods are the perfect solution when fishing for bluegill, trout or bass.

Shimano Clarus

The Clarus series of Shimano rods offers you a lightweight fishing rod with exceptional performance that costs a fraction of the expensive high performance rods that are available in the market. This Shimano rod is made of high modulus IM7 graphite blanks that give the rod its trademark lightness and sensitivity. The Grade A cork handle ensures that you maintain a firm grip on it whether it s dry or wet. These amazing rods also feature trademarked Fuji Concept aluminum oxide guides. All these great Shimano rods are also backed by a Shimano lifetime warranty.

The Shimano Clarus is available in freshwater and inshore fishing variants. You also have the option of choosing between spinning and casting rods. The tapers of the rod are beautifully adjusted to meet your specific fishing requirements.

Shimano Teramar

The Teramar series of Shimano rods were specially designed for saltwater inshore fishing. In fact these Shimano rods were created from the valuable input received by anglers from the Southeast, Southwest, and West coast of the United States. The level of customization in these rods is absolutely mind blowing, with three different kinds of rods being designed for the requirements of anglers from the three different coasts. The rod is distinguished by its color: blue for the Southeast, grey for the Southwest, and olive green for the West coast. This enables the fisherman in any respective area to pick up a saltwater inshore fishing rod that is designed specifically for fishing in that area.

Shimano rods also employ a unique TC4 construction method that makes them look and feel different from all other rods. The design and materials give these Shimano rods the crucial extra sensitivity that is required or freshwater fishing.
