The Shimano Talavera Inshore Spinning Rod is a powerful and affordable saltwater rod. Constructed from a high composite graphite blank, this rod has unbeatable rod-bending strength. New rod tapers were built to overpower the fish and not the angler. It also features a Fuji reel seat and Fuji stainless with alconite guides. The rod is finished with a AA cork full grip to help fight hand fatigue.
