TDSSJ631M TackleDirect Custom Rod: TackleDirect Custom Saltwater rods are high performance and are the result of stringent "on the water" design and testing by some of the finest sport anglers around the world. Tackle Direct new Silver series Spin Jigging rod model TDSSJ 631M is one of the most versatile all around inshore and offshore jigging and casting rods on the market. Designed to be at home in a number of saltwater applications ranging from Bluewater dolphin and black fin tuna, reef fishing for Mutton snappers, to New England stripers and blues. The Silver Series TDSSJ 631 is perfectly balanced with any number of today?s high quality 4000 and 5000 size spinning reels spooled with 30 to 65 pound braid.

Crafted from an ultra-high strength blank featuring a precision blend of both graphite and fiberglass fibers with an integrated solid tip to insure full sensitivity and extra durability during high strain situations with big fish. This new series offers a sophisticated Japanese jigging rod taper and guide train design in an affordable package. Only the best components have been selected to insure years of trouble free rugged saltwater use.

Shimano SP8000SW Spheros Spinning Reel: The Shimano Spheros SW Spinning Reels offer more to the angler with the new Shimano SW concept features.

  • X-Ship: X-Ship provides improved gear durability. By supporting the pinion gear on both ends with bearings, the pinion gear maintains precise alignment with the drive gear. This means the gears will stay in the same position under the heaviest loads. The added benefit is that friction between the spool shaft and gear is eliminated, enhancing the casting performance with lighter lures, and allowing for longer casts.
  • X-Shield: By providing dependable sealing structures and gaskets at necessary points throughout the reel, X-SHIELD is able to block water intrusion. This protection provides high reliability and durability when SPHEROS SW is used in extreme fishing conditions.
  • Shimano CF Gear: To deliver the toughness and performance level required by saltwater anglers, Shimano utilizes their cold forging technology to deliver a gear with incredible structural strength that provides the best protection against abrasion and damage.

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.
