At Shimano we set out to build the highest performing combos for the price. For the Reels we strapped on the New Propulsion spool for the best casting performance. We use stainless steel bearings and placed them in the reels where support is needed and will give the reels a super smooth rotation. We matched those reels with the perfect action rods. All come with Cork handles and are two pieces for easy travel. We used ultra durable graphite reel seats and put premium lightweight guides that will help transfer the lightest of bites through the rod and into your hand.
