"I wanted a range of rods that met my requirements and the demands of New Zealand anglers - without costing the earth. My brief to Shimano Fishing New Zealand was that my rods needed to have:

  • Silicon carbide inserted guides to handle all braid and mono lines.
  • Be lightweight and have a powerful blank
  • Have Fuji reel seats
  • and be slender in profile with a comfortable grip

After a lengthy development process using the latest carbon technologies we now have a range of rods that have exceeded my expectations and improved my fishing experience off the scale!"
