Shimano Clarus Salmon & Steelhead Casting Rods are designed for the serious salmon and steelhead angler. Shimano has updated these popular rods with even more great features including redesigned IM-8 blanks which are lighter and more sensitive to help you catch more fish.
Shimano used some of the best fisherman and dealer input when creating these rods. Additional key features include the newly designed reel seats and Grade A cork handles. All Clarus rods are equipped with lightweight Fuji Aluminum Oxide guides. These guides are produced from a special blend of aluminum oxides and are diamond polished to an ultra smooth finish. This guide system offers greater sensitivity, castability, increased accuracy, and decreased line wear.
Additional features of these rods include the following:
I was looking for something sturdy enough to handle steelhead and salmon but with enough feel to it that you could plunk and feel the bait working. I shopped hard and this is the best pole for the money. Very well built and beautiful to look at. Five stars.
