Shimano Clarus Casting Rods

New and improved, the Shimano Clarus Casting Rods features some key improvements that has made them lighter, stronger and more sensitive than ever before. The new IM8 graphite blanks features a unique construction process that utilizes vertical and horizontal graphite layers surrounded by poly propylene tech tape. Because there is no sanding process involved, the carbon fibers stay intact and no matt paint is needed, therefore saving weight considerably. In the construction process a layer is actually formed on the outer surface, which protects the fibers from damage when scratched.

Durable Pac Bay Hialoy Guides span each blank as well, providing excellent casting capabilities and the strength to stand up to heavy torque. Shimano custom reel seats provide a lightweight comfortable base for your reel, and premium cork handles balance each rod out perfectly. Coming in at under $100 and backed by Shimano’s exceptional warranty, the Clarus Rods are hard to beat.

-Backed by 1-year Limited Warranty (All warranty claims must be made with Shimano directly. Tackle Warehouse can no longer accept Shimano warranty rods.)

Customer Reviews

Comments: Good rod at first, but broke after a year of using. Set into a 3lb smallie fishing beds & snapped half way up the rod. Shimano is a great brand but I would consider a different shimano like the Compre.

From: Levi: Osoyoos, BC 6/3/16

Comments: More lighter than the previous split grip version. Sensitivity I say is a lot better and built stronger. Caught many bass and a few 40+inch Pikes and handled them nicely. Great All Around rod for the price. Wish the handle was a bit longer but I like this old cork better. Great job Shimano on a new and improved Clarus.
