Featuring Shimano’s breakthrough TC4 blank technology, the Shimano Comre Crankbait Casting Rods are equipped with crankbait specific actions engineered to allow crankbaits to perform to the best of their ability, and provide you with the moderate tapers to hook and land more fish. The advanced TC4 Construction process wraps an inner and outer spiral of high modulus graphite around a double layer core of advanced dynamic fibers to build a blank that is virtually indestructible, yet crisp, lightweight and more sensitive than traditional glass blanks. Premium Fuji Aluminum Oxide Guides also offer excellent durability, and help facilitate longer and more accurate casting, and new custom Shimano Reel Seats help reduce weight even further, and provide a comfortable, sturdy base for your reel. The newly designed reel seats also fasten from below the reel for a sleek, new threadless look. Offering a winning blend of value and performance, the Shimano Compre Crankbait Casting Rods are new and improved.

Additional Features:

- Custom Shaped EVA Handles
- Multi-purpose hook keeper
- Etched Technique Specific Badge Butt Cap

-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: Rod its beautiful until it breaks. I sent it back to shimano along with a cumara rod & it is a joke. They will not honor the warranty. Stay away from this company. They will only give you the option to buy the same rod at a discount price, of about 20 to 30 dollars off the regular price. I own 7 shimano rods & will never go back to this stupid company..

Comments: Freaking awesome rod. 7' MH for cranking almost everything. Super light and fits in my hand comfortably. I can litterally crank all day with this rod and not get any hand fatigue.

From: Adam: Sun Prairie, WI 4/21/14

Comments: caveman voice: ME LIKE! GOOD ROD! Totally worth the money, which isn't much for a sick rod like this. I'm with Kook Keith, I have some Loomis CB rods which I freakin LOVE, but this turkey hangs right with em. For less cash.

From: meatwad

Comments: I have this rod in 7'6'' MH and it is a beast. I paired it w/ a Curado 201E7. The combo of these 2 makes a suprisinly multi-taskable rig. I've been pitching w/ it and works really well in the area. I've put on some lighter weight cranks and can still get some incredible distance out of it. Obviously when you pair it w/ a Koppers Live Target Yellow Perch... max distance and annihilation! It has a great backbone and the tip is pretty sensitive. It is built very well. It's winter here so it's hard to get bass w/ out a boat but I've been hammering some nice sized Brown Trout w/ no effort thanks to this awesome rod. You won't be sorry if you get the Compre!

From: Ryan: Seattle, WA

Comments: 100% legit crankin rod. I have three Loomis CBRs and this one is right there with them. Go and check the price diff. I will wait...done? Now you know which one you want, right? I scooped up the 6'8"M for small cranks, rippers and topwaters and it is flawless. Pretty light, too. Slap a Smoke in the 100 size on there and you are fresh to death.

From: Cool Keith: Coolington

Comments: I have the 7' M paired with a Citica 201 and it is awesome! It's the best cranking rod I've owned.  I definitely plan on buying the 7' MH and 7'6" MH soon.
