Shimano Compre Flipping Rods

The Shimano Compre Flipping Rods are a new addition to the ever popular Compre line-up of rods. Offering the technique specific performance you need for flipping, pitching and punching, they are durable rods that can handle the use and abuse of close quarter power fishing. Lightweight IM-9 high modulus graphite blanks offer a balanced feel combined with the sensitivity and power you need to detect bites and horse bass out of heavy cover. Durable Fuji Aluminum Oxide Guides also facilitate greater line control and casting accuracy, while new custom Shimano no-thread reel seats furnish a sturdy lightweight base for your reel. The reel seats also fasten from below the reel for a sleek, new, threadless look. Still one of Shimano's most popular series of rods, the Shimano Compre Flipping Rods offer a winning blend of performance and value.

Additional Features:

- Custom Shaped EVA Handles
- Multi-purpose hook keeper
- Etched Technique Specific Badge Butt Cap
- Limited Lifetime Over-the-Counter Replacement Warranty

 

Comments: Rod was tip heavy and out of balance. Bought the "The Balancer" used all three weights and not love the rod - perfectly balanced.

Comments: I finally was able to use my 7'7" flipping rod today, here in the Northwest, the water is slowly warming up.  I'm not sure if I got a bad rod, this is my 3rd Shimano rod of different kinds.  Set the hook today on a good sized bass and the rod broke below the 5th guide when I was bringing it in.  I really liked the rod up until this point.  Now I will see if Shimano will replace it. 

From: Bellingham, WA

Comments: Way too Tip heavy, It wears on your accuracy after about 7 hours of pitching and flipping.  I have Paired mine with the bama rig for good.  Shimanombaitrunner needs to come up with an optional counter balance system. Or lengthen handle.  The balance point is about 5 or 6 inches from the reel seat with the reel on. That means with out the reel it is around the first eyelet.  I strongly suggest you feel this rod before you buy

Comments: very nice rod, but wow, so tip heavy. I bought 2, should have started with 1 then i coulve bought something lighter.

Comments: Have had the 7'11 for a couple weeks now and its great. It's not to heavy and you can pitch and flip with it all day. I have thrown all sorts of baits this rod and have produced with it. This rod seems like it would also work nice with an alabama rig. I have this rod paired with a 200e7 curado and I'm convinced that you could keep any fish from running into heavy cover.

From: Brooks: Davie, FL

Comments: just picked up the 7'11", its a nice "looking" rod, but WOW..this rod is VERY, VERY tip heavy, has huge guides all the way to the tip, i had to add a balance kit to the butt end just to try and blance it out some, i haven't fished with it yet though.
