The favourite Backbone series of rods just got an overhaul. The new Shimano Backbone Light Spinning Rod is now stronger than ever, with a higher quality blank, good quality componentry and a new slick design that is bound to please.
Utilising high quality graphite sheets rolled on custom designed mandrels, a sensitive yet extremely lightweight performance fishing blank is created.
Rod blanks combining both graphite and fibreglass materials in a particular manner can create a blank with characteristics that are best of both worlds, making a rod that has fibreglass robustness with the power of graphite.
Shimano Backbone Light Spinning Rod Features:
The Shimano Nasci 2500 FB Spinning Reel is an exciting, new powerful spinning reel with unparalleled gear durability at its price point. It features Shimano's X-Ship technology, which not only makes the fishing experience much more enjoyable with ultra-smooth retrieves, but also gives you more grunt when cranking in those larger saltwater species. Plus, the presence of Coreprotect on the roller clutch, the drag, the body and the line roller, indicate that this reel is going to be perfectly at home in the world’s harshest environment — saltwater.
Whether you're casting light Rapala lures to Trout and Salmon, softbaiting the wash or micro-jigging for Snapper, the Shimano Nasci 2500 FB Spinning Reel eats it up!
The new Shimano Nasci 2500 FB Spinning Reel is enhanced by its Hagane Gears for better all-around performance. With amazing strength and durability, the Hagane gear is at the very heart of this reel - giving long-lasting smoothness and feel. Its entire surface is calculated in minute detail by 3D and formed by Shimano’s cold forging technology.
Together with the Hagane cold-forged drive gear, Shimano combined X-Ship technology which results in a smooth, powerful and durable reel. By supporting the pinion gear on both ends with bearings, the pinion gear maintains precise alignment with the drive gear. This means that the gears will stay in position under the heaviest loads. The added benefit is that friction between the spool shaft and gear are eliminated. This will enhance the casting performance of the reel with lighter lures, and allow for longer casts.
