Game Type J
With lightweight, yet strong blanks utilizing both Spiral X and Hi-Power Xconstruction, the Game TypeJ offshore jigging rods provide all-day-fishing performance when using lures like Shimano’s Butterfly jigs. 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.” 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.In short, Hi-Power X construction delivers sharp and crisp rod control by the angler
TREVALA S JIGGING SPINNING
Trevala S utilizes a new proprietary construction type called C4S. C4s results in incredible hoop strength and incredibly sensitive rods. Because of this construction we can use tiny rod diameters. These new smaller diameters lessen the overall weight which allows you to focus on fighting the fish and not your tackle. There is a Trevala S for fishing every new size of Shallow butterfly jig spinning and casting configurations are available. These very specific actions make success an even greater probability when spot fishing sunken stone outcroppings and wrecks. You will be amazed what these little rods are able to conquer.
TREVALA F SPINNING
Shimano has engineered the next generation of TC4 Construction. This new construction uses a high carbon butt section fused together with a TC4 tip section. This new blank design gives you the pulling power of TC4 but with less weight and increased sensitivity. You will also notice a much faster recovery rate, which will increase the jigging action and subdue fish faster.
Winner of American Sportfishing Associations, ICAST New Product Showcase Award for Best in Category Rod. The highly innovative Shimano Trevala Jigging rod series is designed to be fished with the deadly Shimano Butterfly jigs, which were developed from an extremely productive Japanese-style jigging system. These are powerful, lightweight and light-action rods to be used with high speed, high power reels (such as a Shimano Trinidad Narrow, Torsa Narrow or Stella).
