The 240cm is perfect for casting big lures, like big stickbaits, poppers or crankbaits when fishing from the boat.
The 315cm version is also great for casting lures from the banks, but also the ultimate travel rod for fishing with e.g. a big chunk of fish when targeting ray or sharks when being on holiday in a tropical country where these monsters are cruising close to the beach.
The rods have a full EVA handle and a grip large enough to control the rod very well when fighting a big fish.
Shimano STC Monster Travel Spinning Rod Features
- HPC: Shimano High Pressure Carbon is a process which creates stronger, more responsive blanks. Pressure is applied to the blank surface during curing (heating) which evenly distributes the resin through the carbon fibre matrix. The result is a much stronger, more consistent performance and improved responsive.
- NANO: Shimano NANO carbon is a technology which is used to build rod blanks which are on average 35% stronger and 15% lighter than a conventional rod blank. The heart of a NANO rod blank is made of a NANO carbon sheet. This sheet has a special weave which allows to use a low amount of resin which is spread into very small (nano) particles throughout the sheet. This creates the lightness, strength and responsiveness in the blank.
