Shimano has been dedicated to providing precision engineering with their products since the 1920’s and they haven’t disappointed with their Casting Rods. Shimano's casting rods are designed to be used with baitcasting and conventional reels so the reel is seated on top of the rod as opposed to underneath like with a spinning rod and there is usually a trigger grip which allows you to hold the rod firmly while casting. For over 80 years, Shimano has concentrated on precision engineering, one step at a time. Creating the most innovative products and processes you can hold in your hand today.
