Purpose built for those heading over the horizon to battle the largest offshore species.
New for 2022 the Abyss SW has been redesigned by the team at Shimano New Zealand to offer anglers a range of offshore rods capable of taming even the largest game fish encountered in the depths of the ocean. At the heart of the Abyss SW is a T45 blank. Built by rolling graphite tape at a linear 45-degree angle and reinforcing it with two sheets of graphite rolled at opposing angles, the blank of the Abyss SW achieves a significant reduction in weight while maintaining incredible hoop strength and sensitivity. To compliment this robust construction the Abyss SW game rods utilise only the best components. Heavy-duty Fuji SiC and SiN guides have been used throughout the range to ensure optimal line management even under extreme load. While the grip assembly of the game fishing models has been upgraded to feature an innovative adjustable butt giving anglers the option to fish them in straight or bent butt configurations at the push of a button. The Abyss SW is set to reinforce its formidable reputation as the go-to choice for experienced offshore game fisherman looking for a reliable tool to get the job done day in day out.
