Shimano’s high quality TCurve game rod lineup has seen the addition of a bent butt standup 24 kilo rod and a straight butt standup 37.
The fully rollered bent butt 24 is a sweet rod to use and will become extremely popular with anglers now that east coast yellowfin tuna stocks appear to be on the increase. Plus it’s a wicked stick for use on big southern bluefin tuna as well. For the rest of the year it makes an excellent marlin rod for mid-range blacks, stripes and smallish blues.
The straight butt 37 has been designed in response to consumer demand and has a Slick Butt, heavy duty anodised aluminium reel seat and oversize Aftco roller guides and tip – perfect for accommodating those heavy tackle wind-on leaders.
Both rods are triple under and over-bound, plus those unique TCurve blanks are light, strong and incredibly responsive.
Additionally, the existing TCurve eight kilo rod now comes with standard Aftco roller guides, so anglers using sometimes bulky wind-on leaders and knots will have no problems getting them through the guides and onto the rod.
