Rod - SHIMANO BACKBONE TRAVEL OH 8-10KG
New for 2015 and after much demand for multi peice rods Shimano Fishing NZ have designed and released a brand new range of travel rods under the ever popular Shimano Backbone banner. The travel series encompasses four butt joined two-piece integrated graphite rods that makes transporting and storing a much easier proposition.
Shimano's Backbone Travel rods makes life much easier for that next land based trip or keeping a rod handy in the car for a sneaky after work mission as well as stowing your rods when space is limited for example when travelling overseas to explore new fishing destinations.
The range features two spin models and two overhead models to suit a variety of applications.

There's no tougher test for fishing tackle than to have it used on a charter boat so for this excellent overhead to be named Charter Special you know it's going to be good. Taking a beating is what it's all about and it's no wonder this tough lasting reel has become Shimano's top selling reel for chartered operation. From a massive heavy-duty levelwind mechanism that just will not jam and that spreads line evenly across the aluminium spool to the light but strong XT7 body this reel is up to coping with the worst treatment that inexperienced fishos can dish out. For more experienced anglers then this reel will continue to provide faultless service for many years to come.
