Trevala Jigging Spinning Rods Feature Details
  • Shimano® TC4 Construction®
    Shimano has engineered the new responsive TC4 Construction material to elevate your fishing experience. The TC4 Construction material wraps a double inner layer of advanced, dynamic T Glass with an inner and outer spiral of high modulus graphite. This breakthrough in design construction results in an extremely durable, crisp, yet lightweight rod.
  • Fuji® Fuji Hardloy Guides
    The Hardloy guide is Fuji’s most popular guide and is produced from a special blend of high grade aluminum oxide. All Hardloy guides are diamond polished for decreased line wear and permanently mounted to the frame. This results in increased performance, corrosion resistance and greater heat dissipation.
  • Fuji® Reel Seat
    Built to last Fuji® reel seats are designed with graphite nylon bodies, exclusive S-4 Stainless Steel hoods, with lined cushioned inserts to offer a lightweight reel seat with superior strength. Uniform design for increased comfort and self aligned hoods provide a solid lockdown on your reel foot that will never back off while fishing.

Great Rod for the price!
I really like the Trevala jigging rods from Shimano. I use them primarily for bottom fishing on the east coast party boats for sea bass fluke and cod fishing and pier fishing. The strength and sensitivity as well as the light weight and reasonable cost makes them my favorite choice. I have two of these rods and they fit my style of fishing.

Strong yet light
This rod had me weary of its weight at first but quickly made me a believer after jigging up a couple grouper in the Tortugas. Very light which keeps you from getting fatigued but enough backbone to land a big fish.
ProsLightweight, strong

what a great rod
this rod was made for braded line and I have 30# on the reel. The rod was the perfect this week with the schoolie dolphin we caught. I also intended to use it for float back for yellowtail in the florida keys, this is the second one that we have bought because we liked it so much.

Not a "Lightweight" when it counts
Just reeled in a 5' shark on Trevalli jigging rod and braid witb drag full tight Rod bent almost in half reeling in, but never snapped. Even Got the shark all the way back up to the boat for video.
ProsLOVE the smaller width handle, love the lightweight feel, and butt length built better for a woman.s hands and shorter reach
ConsCan wear your back out if out of shape but probly could put a stronger reel on and do better, faster

Great jigging rod
This a great rod to begin jigging with. I do not have much experience with many other types of jigging rods but this one has never let me down. Is it very lightweight, comfortable to jig, great flexibility and best of all strong. I have nothing bad to say about this rod.

Best jigging rod on the market.Very light yet strong enough to land any fish out there.

I am using this rod as a bottom fishing rod, instead of a jigging rod and I find it is perfect for my purpose. I usually fish on party boats for inshore species. This rod has a soft tip that is soft enough to feel the small nibble from a porgy and a strong back bone to fight large striped bass. I paired ti with a Shimano STCI44000FA Stradic CI4 Plus Spinning Reel, the whole setup is very light and I'm happy with it.

Albacore slayer!
I bought it specifically for WA albacore tuna- it was a blast! I matched it up with a Shimano Baitrunner 6000 and slayed the tuna! The rod had plenty of backbone and still managed to feel sensitive and light.... Great rod!

I put this rod on my Stella 20000 it has enough back bone to bring in big fish yet doesn't break the bank.

You don't have to be concerned is this rod going to perform.Shimano has put their name on it and they didn't get to the confidence level their at by putting a faulty rod on the market. I currently own seven Shimano rods and would not change one.

Pros Strong. Good finish. Durable grip material
