The new Shimano Tiralejo Surf Spinning Rods are made with the all new Shimano C4S blank construction which utilizes high modulus blank and wraps 4 outer layers of 90 degree graphite. The C4S construction is a unique design that uses Carbon "C" a 4 layer process "4" and slit carbon tape "S" while using high modulus carbon "HM". THe rod is wrapped with an inner and outer layer of carbon tape over two layers of carbon pre-preg. This design significantly increases the strength of the rod but more importantly increases the recovery rate which in turn allows you to cast farther and more accurately as it helps eliminate blank twist when put under a heavy load. This new rod construction will increase the hoop strength for maximum pulling power without inhibiting the sensitivity.

  • Custom long cast concept guide spacing
  • Fuji stainless steel frame with alconite inserts
  • Black shrink tube grip
  • Fuji DPS reel seat

High quality surf rod for light use
I own two of these rods, the 9'6" and the 10'6". Both are fantastic light plugging rods! I've thrown plugs up to 3oz with the 10'6" and 2.5oz with the 9'6". They both throw SP minnows and other light plugs very well! And they work pencil poppers and other topwater lures nicely. Solid backbone in both rods, and a nice uniform bend. Easy to forget it's a 2 piece. Overall a very nice surf rod for light use.
ProsHigh quality surf rod for light use. Makes schoolies fun and can handle a fish into the 20# class.

Shimano Tiralejo 12'
For surf fishing in Florida replaced 12 ft ugly sticks with a pair of 12 ft tiralejo rods. Paired with Battle 8000's. They are super nice, light, powerful. Great rod.
ProsLight weight, easy to load on cast, casts further, good with bigger chunk bait, handles big fish (sharks to 5 ft) yet sensitive enough detect bites and fight small fish.
ConsI like the small diameter handle untill I fought a shark for 1 hr 20 min from the beach, it was painful. Need gloves if fighting big fish. Broken handle on 3 rd day got wedged in rod holder on take..

Great Surf Rod
Fished this beauty for the first time a couple weeks ago on the Gulf in South Florida. The weather was terribly windy. Was casting a consistent 70-80 yards in a sustained 30 knot headwind compared to my other 10' surf Rod which would barely cast 50. I was casting 6 oz Sputnik sinkers and light chunk just to hold bottom. I paired this Rod with shimano ultegra 10000 xsc and it was a match made in heaven. No wind knots in 70+ hours on the beach using 40 lb braid. Casting 6 oz is on the high end for this Rod but it handled it well. Looking forward to fishing in more favorable conditions later in the year. I imagine 3-4 oz and bait would be the sweet spot for this Rod.

I fish in Africa for Barracudas, Snappers and Jacks and others. I use Jigs and poppers and I have must of the best rods available on the market for surf spinning/jigging, but since I got my Shimano Tiralejo 106MA (second generation) and my 2015 Saltiga 4500H I leave the rest home.

Great Rod NY Long Island Surf and Jetty
Great surfcasting Rod. I fish primarily for Stripers Blues and Albies, but this rod is sensitive enough for fluking too. I left off a star only because at the time I purchased it shimano was not offering a one piece. The 9 1/2 footer casts incredibly well. My last couple of rods were St croixs and I Feel it was a step up in quality even though their service and replacement policies are better.

I LOVE this rod!
I recently purchased this spinning rod. I was looking for an affordable quality surfcasting spinning rod with Fuji K-guides that was about 12 to +12 feet in length. This rod is light for its size. It has "back bone" and can control nice size hard fighting fish. Best of all it launches my bait and lures out there with ease using the pendulum and easy casts. I use both the Shimano Ultegra 10000 and the Shimano Stella 18000 loaded with super braid with this pole depending on what I am doing and how I am feeling that day/night.

Nice rod for the money
I was fishing the surf this fall when a pod of bunker were just out of my reach, so I decided to move up and purchase this rod. Great choice the rod easily adds 20-30 yards to my cast. This rod feels great it casts well and has great power. Casting this rod is such a pleasure. The rod has plenty of backbone for getting your offering out there.

Im heading out on a long range tuna trip out of PV, MX. The report is the Dorado are biting so I figured I should bring a popping rod. I'd like to know if the Tiralejo 9'6" would handle Dorado/Mahi? I'd like to buy the Tiralejo as I could use if for jetty and surf fishing as well instead of a dedicated popping rod. Thanks
1 Answer
The rods rated up to 3 oz's, paired with the right reel and that would make a good popping combo for Mahi.

December 18, 2018
I see that the Tiralejos were designed by Shimano to complement the Ultegras as part of a “long cast system†and Shimano actually recommends they be used together because the Ultegras have a “parallel foot†design. However, could I use another long-cast reel like the newer Penn Spinfisher VI LC Series (which does NOT have the parallel foot) on the Tiralejos? Or would that cause line slap?
1 Answer
The rod can be paired with most surf reels.

from FL asked:
January 4, 2018
I was looking at buying a 12' Tiralejo spinning rod. Are these suitable for bait fishing at distance? Would they be suitable for a pendulum style cast within their weight range? Would a Shimano ULCI45500XSB Ultegra CI4 Plus XSB Surf Spinning Reel be a good match for this rod. If you do not think that this set up is ideal for my intended use I would be happy for you to make a suggestion of another setup & guide me in the right direction. Thanks in advance. Ian
1 Answer
The 12' Tiralejo paired with an Ultegra would be a great setup for distance casting with bait rigs not exceeding 6 oz. If heavier weights are needed to hold bottom where you are fishing, I'd suggest the Penn Carnage II model number CARSFII 3065S12, or the 12' spinning models of the St. Croix Mojo Surf or Avid Surf.

Does the 11' come in 50/50 split? Would it be good paired with a 8000 Saragosa for throwing between 100gm to 150gm pluga ans sticks? I'm looking for a rod on the heavy side but not sure about the split. Recommendations?
1 Answer
The butt section of the rod measures 55" and the tip section of the rod measure approximately 79". Since it is a heavy rod rated for 3 to 6 ounces with a fast action tip it would be ideal for fishing with heavier surf lures. The Saragossa 8000 can definitely be paired up with this rod, and is a great match for it. But, the 6000 may suit it better since the rod is relatively light weight comparing to other 11' surf rods. The 8000 weighs 22 ounces while the 6000 weighs 16.5 ounces thus the 8000 would match the Daiwa CLSP1102HFS Coastal Salt Pro Surf Spinning Rod better than the Tiralejo. But, over all the Tiralejo is a great quality rod for its price; worth every penny. The fast action tip allows you to control the action of your lure as well as being able to feel everything going on on the other end of your line. Since it is rated 3 to 6 ounces you could even fish bait if you desired to.

what rod would be better suited st Croix mojo spinning rod mss106mm2 or shimano tiralejo spinning rod trs106ma for throwing 2-3/8 ounce pencil poppers and Polaris poppers at the cc canal. sometimes 3ounce. looking for good casting and strong enough to hold a 30lb plus fish. don't want 11 or 12 foot. to long for some of the banks of the canal. thanks randy
1 Answer
Honestly, we feel both of these rods will put you at an equal disadvantage at the canal. To fish it to your advantage, we feel that a rod at least 6" longer is needed. The extra length is not only for casting distance but for fighting ability as well. You want a more moderate action blank and power to fight the current and the fish. Neither of these rods offer you that. A custom production rod would really fit your needs better. The CTS S7 is an easier casting, more moderate blank. The CTS helical core in the tip section and a sturdy carbon/glass butt provide you with casting distance AND th power to fight the fish and the current of the Canal.

Hi guys my question is, were any of these rods designed to throw bait? It seem the 10'6" is rated to light, but the other 2 sizes might work. I like the idea of a long cast system, sometimes I just want to get my bait out there a little further. Seems like Shimano is making this system for throwing artificials. What do you guys think?
2 Answers
I asked them the same question. They said that the ratings on the rods are accurate. You can use them for bait, but be careful not to over load them. These are not "8 and bait" rods. On the other hand, the new reels will add a lot of distance to your casts.
