Shimano Launches New Rods To Conquer Bluewater & Surf

Shimano North America Fishing, a renowned global leader in the fishing industry, is proud to announce the introduction of three new series of rods geared towards the saltwater angler. These product options cater to a spectrum of anglers, from offshore captains to tournament-savvy billfish enthusiasts and surf fishermen.

New product options feature world-class componentry and uncompromising quality for anglers looking to tame the ocean and its salty inhabitants. Shimano Hi-Power X and Spiral X technologies are a common thread throughout the lineup, delivering crisp rod control, enhancing overall strength and twist resistance, and facilitating instant power transfer for precise casting and fish catching.

TIRALEJO XX: The pinnacle of surf-casting rod performance is here. The flagship Tiralejo XX series of surfcasting rods, with proven powers and actions, leverages Shimano’s legendary patented rod technologies to improve angler performance when battling large fish in heavy surf. Tiralejo XX rods incorporate Shimano’s proprietary Spiral X and Hi-Power X technologies to enhance the transfer of power throughout the rod blank while maximizing casting distance and accuracy. This combination of blank technology provides unsurpassed sensitivity while delivering maximum lifting power. Additionally, the Tiralejo XX rods feature a custom ergonomic grip, Fuji sic guides, and a Fuji DPS reel seat with a locking nut for added comfort and security while casting heavy lures during harsh conditions.

TEREZ BW: Three new Full Roller Uni Butt models expand the comprehensive Terez BW series of offshore rods. This popular lineup was built to conquer any offshore species, featuring specific models for high-speed trolling, slow trolling, deep-dropping, swordfishing, bottom fishing, or live-bait fishing. All new models measure 4’0” and feature premium Winthrop X-Caliber guides, with options in multiple powers and line ratings. Engineered with guidance from tournament-winning captains, the Terez BW series performs at the highest level. Rod blanks are constructed with premium technologies including Hi-Power X, Spiral X, and UD glass blank construction to create best-in-class durability and feel for the offshore environment.

Expanding on Shimano’s proven Billfish Concept (BFC) lineup of reels, the all-new Terez BW BFC rods are designed to meet the needs of tournament-savvy captains and veteran bluewater anglers. The comprehensive lineup includes conventional and spinning options featuring industry-leading rod technologies–Hi-Power X, Spiral X, and UD glass blank construction–and premium componentry to deliver best-in-class durability, responsiveness, and performance. For all-day comfort, the Terez BW BFC conventional models feature a Winthrop Epic Butt, representing the lightest and most responsive trolling rods on the market. Terez BW BFC spinning models feature an EVA grip and handle to accurately toss live baits at tailing or cutting billfish at the surface, while the Terez BW BFC Kite rod includes a premium Winthrop Kite Tip-Top for added durability during the rigors of tournament angling. The all-new Terez BW BFC series of rods is designed to pair with existing BFC reels, representing the next chapter of Shimano’s legendary Billfish Concept lineup.
