DetailsOriginally developed with the holiday angler in mind, the Shimano Travel Concept range of rods have also captured the imagination of anglers who want to fish after work or require peace of mind when leaving tackle in the car. Supplied with a hard protective case, they break down and fit into a medium suitcase or carryall.
In 2.75lb and 3lb test curves, both with a Long Range action, the Exage BX Specimen STC rods update and upgrade their AX predecessors. The six-section XT60 blanks enable these rods to be transported set-up in 2, 3 or even in 6 pieces.

What our customers say..

The rod was despatched on time & arrived very well packaged - a robust tube with plenty of strong bubble wrap.
In addition he rod sections are self-contained in a zip-top Shimano branded travel/protective tube. This has a waterproof black material outer cover, a carry handle, & embroidered logo. A black 6 section roll cloth with a Velcro fold down flap keeps the rod sections safe within the outer carry case.
This is now the 2nd Shimano travel rod (the first is 5 years old, taken a good battering & still going strong)
None of the action is lost as a result of the 6 sections, it's a delight to use & plenty of power when required.
Typically it's very well designed,beautifully engineered & finished. Nothing flash, subdued substance over style. Fittings are strong & high quality, not skimped. Positioning of guide rings, real seat,handle grips,all perfect.
A good value quality product from a quality supplier The excellent service throughout makes for a very positive buying experience. Thanks to both Shimano & Angling Active Review by Iceni (Created 29/05/2014)
