These Japanese designed rods are aptly named, as they are perfect for grappling with any species you may encounter while casting lures offshore — from kings, samsons, amberjacks, various trevallies and dogtooth tuna, to mackerel and southern bluefin.
The casting series consists of four rods that are two-metres-plus in length and of two-piece construction for ease of transport, with a near undetectable ferruling system that in no way hampers their performance.
These are rated for PE lines from 2 through to 5. Shimano Grappler Rods are built on super light, high carbon content High Power X blanks, and the componentry is top-notch — CI4+ reel seats on the light jig rods and Fuji reel seats on the rest, Fuji K series SiC guides on stainless steel frames, and custom shaped hard EVA grip.
