The Shimano Game Type J Saltwater Jigging Rods combine Spiral X and Hi Power X blank construction technology. This Spiral X construction provides for reinforced blank strength and torsional rigidity. These Shimano rods are lightweight in design. Hi-power X-construction eliminates blank twist, which means longer casting distances and exceptional casting accuracy. These Shimano rods were designed to fish Shimano butterfly and other vertical drop jigs when targeting tuna, grouper, snapper, and sea bass. These rods feature CI4+ material reel seats thus providing more power and sensitivity.
