SHIMANO AERO X1 13FT FLOAT ROD

-

WHAT THEY SAY: This quality three-piece carbon rod has a highly responsive action that picks line up from the water quickly and cleanly, making it ideal for float work on running water. Features include Hardlite intermedia­te guides that prevent line from sticking to the blank, a full-length cork and EVA handle, and a maximum casting weight of 20g to add to its versatilit­y. WHAT WE SAY: If this rod is half as good as the other Shimano Aero X1 models that we’ve seen, it’s likely to be worth every penny and perform to a very high standard.

We’re looking forward to our on-the-bank test with this float rod in the next few weeks.

Price: £59.99, www.shimano.com
