Anglers travelling to a dream fishing destination or pursuing saltwater trophy species in hard to get places requires difficult decisions to be made when selecting an outfit to travel with due to the lengths of SW rods. This is no longer an issue with Shimano’s new Grappler Travel series of 8’ and 8’2” 3-piece rods. Featuring 4 Type C casting specific models with a solid 3-piece construction for easy transportation and storage when you are on the move. The models range from a PE5 right through to a PE10 and feature the same premium Fuji componentry and spec as the existing Grappler series. Built on the exclusive Shimano Spiral X and Hi-Power X carbon wrapped blanks to provide superior casting performance and strength so you can take the fight to the fish.

- Fuji Sic Tip/Alconite
- JDM Quality Rods Made for Travel
- 1 Year Warranty
In Hi-Power X construction, the blank's outermost layer is diagonally wrapped with carbon tape, which forms an array of "X" shapes. The width of the tape, its winding angle and the part of the rod being wrapped are fine-tuned according to the target fish species. The flexibility allows Shimano to adjust these wraps during construction for precise actions, enhanced overall strength and added twist resistance. In short, Hi-Power X construction delivers sharp and crisp rod control by the angler.
SPIRAL X CORE
A high-quality carbon tape is glued into the rod core with a high-strength resin which results in increased strength in all directions. Compared to rods without Spiral Core X, the blank is 2.5 times stronger and the strength.
