The Shimano Ocea Plugger Flex Limited Spinning 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 rods were created for casting Shimano's Orca pencil baits and poppers and other entice them on top species. The Shimano Ocea Plugger rods feature Fuji tangle free SiC K guides adding to increased casting distance.

A $7.00 oversize packaging charge applies to this item as it ships in a long heavy duty tube to protect your items. This fee will still apply when discount shipping coupons are used.

Shimano Ocea Plugger 8'6"
I fish this rod for west coast species on surface irons and jig/swimbait combos as well as throwing musky plugs in the midwest. It is an absolute cannon capable of bombing super long casts with large lures. My only suggestion is to specify that the 2-piece split in the rod is at the top of the handle rather than in the blank

This rod is absolutely amazing! Anyone who has ever used a Terez rod knows how thin, light and yet powerful they are. Well, this rod takes all that to a new level. I have used other popping rods in the past that not only felt heavy but stiff as well. This Ocea rod is so light that it will leave you wondering if its going to break under heavy pressure. It has a nice moderate tip which allows you to make great casts and work any lure as you wish. But its when this rod gets punched in the jaw by a big fish that its true colors come out. I have used this rod on large Tuna, big beach Tarpon, Sharks and anything else I have been able to hook into and this rod has slayed them all. The power of the 83H in particular is that of the Greek gods. If Zeus ever fished, this was the rod he used. I have purchased a Game Type J which utilizes this new blank construction and can't wait to try it out as well. Its pricey but worth every penny!
Pros- Light yet powerful blank construction. - Beautiful Rod - 2 Piece design makes it easy to travel with. - Comes with a high quality rod sack and straps.

Can do you specify the split in the rod to be in the handle versus the blank per one of the reviews? I would be pairing the rod to a Shimano Stella 10000 and Daiwa Saltiga 5000H
1 Answers
The Shimano Ocea Plugger Flex Limited Spinning Rods are split at the handle.

I am looking at the Stella 8000hg with this rod for top water fishing using the shimano orca stickbaits, targeting mainly kingfish. Will this be ok or do you have another suggestion.
1 Answers
The Shimano Ocea Plugger Flex Limited Spinning Rods will match well with the Stella 8000 for the application your using it for. Thank you for considering TackleDirect for your fishing needs.

Would the Twin Power 14000 be a good match for the OPFLSLTD83H with 65lb braid for tunas and other big offshore fish?
1 Answers
A Twin Power 14000 and 65# braid would pair up well with OPFLSLTD83H.

Which would be the better option for popping in the surf for Tarpon, 8'3" Heavy or Medium Heavy?
1 Answers
I would choose the 8'3 Heavy. Especially with fishing for Tarpon, it is better to be safe than sorry with the ability to use a heavier pound test line, and heavier power in the back bone of the rod to turn their heads when you hook into heavier fish.

from Edmonton asked:

Is an 8' Med. too much for a Twin Power 5000 with 40lbs. line or is it a perfect match?
1 Answers
I think that that reel would work on the rod, but my preference would be the larger sizes of that model, such as a 6000 or 8000. That would also depend on what you are fishing for. Also, I would not recommend putting 40lb braid on a 5000 size Twinpower. You are only going to get around 175 yards of line on there, which is really not enough if you get something like a wind knot or break.

Would a Saragossa 10000 be a good match for the MH version of this model fair some sailfish?
1 Answers
The Saragosa and this rod would be a great match for what you are trying to fish for. You could even go smaller with the reel if you like, if you wanted to fish with light tackle.

Think warm thoughts – sunny, bright, comfortable thoughts. That's all I keep saying to myself as I sit shivering in New Jersey's subzero freeze. So my mind went to visions of snook fishing in Florida. Yesterday, I became green with envy as I... Read More
