Built to do battle with the toughest pelagic heavyweights, the Shimano Grappler Type C Popping Rods utilize Shimano's highest-performing rod blank technologies. Much different than the other rods in Shimano's Grappler series, the Grappler Type C is designed for long distance casting poppers and stickbaits rather than vertical jigging. These fast action popping rods feature a soft tip for launching lures great distances, and a sturdy backbone that provides unbelievable fighting power against the hardest fighting offshore species like tuna, giant trevally, various billfish species, and more.

Shimano's Grappler series rods are built from blanks utilizing their proprietary Spiral-X and Hi-Power X construction that produces the most powerful, lightest, and most sensitive blanks available. Spiral X construction consists of multiple layers comprised of carbon tape that tightly winds the blank diagonally in opposite directions, resulting in enhanced torsional rigidity without adding extra weight. This construction results in an extremely responsive rod that allows for instant power transmission while casting or jigging and greatly enhances fish fighting capabilities. Spiral X blanks are 250% more structurally rigid and 180% less prone to twisting than standard blank construction. These cutting edge blanks are fitted with Fuji Alconite guides and an SiC tip, along with comfortable EVA handles. The end result is a rod that delivers sharp and crisp precision control that is extremely light to reduce angler fatigue.

Excellent Rod!
January 27, 2020
I own a higher model Ocea Plugger rod and Full Throttle rod so I was curious to see the quality of these lower priced models. I was glad to see that these rods are built with great materials and the X-Wrap blanks are second to none. Shimano makes great rods. My next purchase will be a model from the new Terez series!
Pros-High Quality -Plenty of Power -Excellent rods for powerful fish (Tarpon, Tuna, etc.).
