Shimano set out to build the highest performing combos for the price. For the Reels they strapped on the New Propulsion spool for the best casting performance. They used stainless steel bearings and placed them in the reels where support is needed and will give the reels a super smooth rotation. They matched those reels with the perfect action rods. They used ultra durable graphite reel seats and put premium lightweight guides that will help transfer the lightest of bites through the rod and into your hand. Offered in 2 technical application rod models. New Easy Mag II brake system allows easy brake setting. It's the perfect entry model with style.
