Go fishing Japanese style
Designed for micro-jigging, slow jigging, and slider styled fishing - the Shimano Sephia CI4+ S610LS Micro Jigging Rod
is a pleasure to use. This rod features solid carbon Taftec α incorporated tip for flexibility and increased sensitivity. The tip section is also white-coloured with red threads for high visibility under any weather. The blank utilises the Shimano exclusive Spiral-X and Hi-Power X technology which results in a lighter, stronger and more responsive rod. This delivers improved performance and more fish.
The TAFTEC α technology allows the tip to be very flexible and it will detect the slightest touch of your lure. TAFTEC X tips are spineless and 250% stronger than standard solid carbon tips, lighter in weight, faster in action and more sensitive.
Spiral X construction overcomes blank twist and enhanced rod performance. It consists of 3 layers: a blank made of vertical fibres, an inner layer and an outer layer both comprised of carbon tape that tightly winds the blank diagonally in opposite directions. By using this carbon tape in place of a conventional horizontal fibre sheet, Spiral X achieves enhanced torsional rigidity without adding extra weight. This facilitates instant power transmission for precise casting and fighting fish.
Hi-Power X construction makes the rod tougher and ensures it bends more accurately. 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.
CI4+ Reel Seat
The CI4+ material is lighter and stronger than conventional resin. Adopting it on the reel seat contributes greatly to weight reduction and enhanced sensitibity of the rod.
