The Shimano Grappler Spin Jig Rods is sure to help you tackle your most powerful ocean foes. Representing the next evolution of this highly popular offshore jigging series. It features both Spiral X and Hi-Power X blank construction, and has been tested in the harshest of offshore environments around the world. Spiral X and Hi-Power X increase the strength to twisting and reduces power loss during jerking and fighting. Rod action is versatile to adapt to different jigging rhythms. Enjoy a better fishing experience with the Shimano Grappler Type J S566 Spin Jig Rod's power, response and control.

Spiral X
Spiral X construction consists of three layers: a blank made of vertical fibres, an inner layer and an outer layer, both comprising of carbon tape that tightly winds the blank diagonally in opposite directions. By using this carbon tape in place of a conventional horizontal fibre sheet, Spiral X achieves enhanced torsional rigidity without adding extra weight. This in turn facilitates instant power transmission for precise casting and for fighting fish. Through its exclusive lightweight structure, Shimano's Spiral X construction enhances your "catching power".

Hi-Power X
In Hi-Power X construction, the blank's outermost layer is diagonally wrapped with carbon tape, which forms an array of X shapes. The width of the tape, its winding angle and the part of the rod being wrapped are fine-tuned according to the target fish species. The flexibility allows Shimano to adjust these wraps during construction for precise actions, enhanced overall strength and added twist resistance. In short, Hi-Power X construction delivers sharp and crisp rod control.
