Shimano Clarus Salmon & Steelhead Spinning 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:

  • IM-8 graphite construction
  • 2-piece construction for easy storage and travel
  • Fuji Aluminum Oxide Guide System with black frames
  • Specialized Salmon & Steelhead designs
  • Custom Shimano reel seats with cork composite reel cushions
  • Grade A cork handles
  • Metallic charcoal blank finish
  • Hook keeper
  • Lifetime limited manufacturer's warranty

About Me:
Avid Fisher
Great for a beginner or someone who wants a salmon rod that can handle a steel head if one gets on. I have both handle styles in the 9', one is better for bait fishing the other better for casting all day. Both are great off the pier or in the river and light and sensitive enough to also work when I am salmon fishing but instead find the perch.

Pros: Accurate Casting, Durable, Good Tip Action, Sensitive

Cons: none

Best Uses: River Fishing, Pier Fishing

About Me:

Bought this rod for small pretadory fishing in the Mediterranean sea. Such as sea bass and barracuda. Great rod for its price, very light and ballances with 2500-4000 sized shimano reels. It has a very sensitive tip and a stiff body. Cool graphite color and sexy guide wrapping, far greater than the older clarus model. this rod could have been improved if the backgrip was a bit shorter than it is..since it's a bit too long for its action (1/4-1 oz)

Pros: Sensitive, Good Tip Action

Cons: none

Best Uses: Ocean Fishing, River Fishing, Small Fish
