Shimano Ocea Plugger Spinning Rod
Taking to the seas means you need one sturdy rod. Shimano's got you covered with the Shimano Ocea Plugger Spinning Rod! This rod is made to be as strong as they come. Shimano packed in their Hi-Power X and their Spiral X technologies into the blank of this rod. The overlapping layers and cross patterning techniques have created one hefty, powerful rod that feels as light as can be! The improved power through the blank allows anglers to hook up and reel in some monster trophies from the sea! The Shimano Ocea Plugger Spinning Rod is the perfect combination of impressive power and stunning design!
- 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. Hi-Power X construction delivers sharp and crisp rod control by the angler.
- Spiral X
- Spiral X construction consists of three layers: a blank made of vertical fibers, an inner layer, and an outer layer both comprised of carbon tape that tightly winds the blank diagonally in opposite directions. By using this carbon tape in place of a conventional horizontal fiber sheet, Spiral X achieves enhanced torsional rigidity without adding extra weight. This in turn facilitates instant power transmission for precise casting and fighting fish. Through its exclusive lightweight structure, Shimano's Spiral X construction enhances anglers' "catching power."
