Designed for one of the hottest crazes to hit bass fishing in a long time, the Shimano Crucial Umbrella Rig Casting Rod delivers the proven technique-specific performance that only Shimano could provide. Shimano and the Shimano prostaff studied the wide variety of Umbrella rigs and combinations available today, and built the blank out of premium IM-10 carbon fiber to perfectly cast and handle this big, awkward lure. They combined a precisely designed fast tip with a heavy action to provide the increased hook setting power you need to make solid hooksets at the end of long casts, and even make multiple hooksets at once. Shimano also added two more inches to the butt section for additional support when casting. Also equipped with premium Fuji Alconite Guides that provide the durability you need to wrench on a big Umbrella Rig, and haul in multiple fish at once, the Shimano Crucial Umbrella Rig Casting Rod also features a custom Shimano Reel Seat and a split grip handle configuration to help keep the weight down and provide a balanced feel.

Comments: I love this rod for swim baits it rocks, but it is a tad on the light side for umbrella rigs. If they are not heavy loaded they do fine tho. This is one awesome swimbait rod tho best I have got yet.

Comments: ok i did not buy this rod for the umbrella rig i bought this rod for small swimbaits i love the concept of the umbrella rig, i did try it with the rig but i thought it was a little lite for the umbrella rig it needs to be a little heavier for the rig but great rod for 4-6 inch baits i do not think its a a-rig rod but great concept thanks tw and shimano
