Shimano Tribal Spod Rod 12ft 50mm 5lb
Designed with distance in mind, the Shimano Tribal Spod models can launch large
spods and spombs at extreme ranges. Test curves have been increased slightly for
more power and combined with the progressive action the blank can be compressed
more easily than other high end models and also enhances casting accuracy.
Graphics match all of the Tribal carp rods and the the 3K strengthening weave limits
any possibility of breakage.
The SiC guides are suitable for both mono and braid main lines and are tough enough
to handle repeated casting and retrieval.
High Pressure Carbon: During the heating process of any rod or pole the resin can be
pushed to the surface of the blank which may cause an uneven distribution, resulting in
weak spots. With High Pressure Carbon (HPC), pressure is applied to the blank during the
heating process, forcing the resin to remain inside and ensuring an even spread.
The result is amazing, creating a blank which can be up to 40% stronger than blanks
made without HPC.
Adding Biofibre reinforces the carbon fibres in all directions.
This gives outstanding strength, shock resistance, lightness and power.
