They are back! After Shimano discontinued this offshore rod line, overwhelming demand eventually brought this series back into the line up. Made of super strong TC4 material, these rods can handle what even the most avid anglers can dish out. Not only with extreme performance, but a warranty like no other in the industry, Shimano hit a `home run` by bringing back a very popular rod series. Power and action varies from rod to rod, however, the series is sure to please!
