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.

An $8.00 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.

The 2-piece split in the rod is at the top of the handle or the middle?. Then what would be the length of the cane when it is divided?
1 Answers
The Ocea Plugger comes apart at the top of the handle. For the OPFLSLTD83H, the handle piece measures 30" and remainder of the rod measures 73".

I'm comparing this rod to the 7'8" terez x heavy one piece rod . I will be using it on larger fish . What advantages does either rod have . There is a big price difference
1 Answers
The quality of the Shimano OPFLSLTD83H Ocea Plugger Flex Limited Spinning Rod can not be matched. The rod is light and made to flex. The action on the Ocea Plugger is great for larger fish.

Its been so hardwired into our heads that bonefish must be caught on a fly rod, and while of course bonefish are truly a spectacular battle on the long rod, many overlook the fact that you can always catch them on regular ol'... Read More
