Possibly the lightest and most sensitive rods Shimano has ever produced, every element of the Cumulus Casting Rod Series was designed with low weight in mind. Even the new HM-1 blank material was developed especially for this rod series. Using a new graphite and resin blend, Shimano was able to reduce the overall weight of the Cumulus Rods without reducing their strength. Extremely sensitive, these pure lightweight rods are built for performance with the lightest Cumulus Casting Rod weighing in at only 2.7 oz.

Premium Fuji Titanium SiC Guides deliver durable performance, as well as, the strength to accommodate braided lines, and each rod also features a custom Shimano Reel Seat with all but the necessary material removed. Anywhere weight could be shaved and made sense, it was done. No butt cap, no aluminum appearance parts, no paint on the top section of the blank, etc., even the Cumulus name was etched into the EVA grip instead of painted onto the rod blank. Stealthy and simplistic - the ultra-light, super sensitive Shimano Cumulus Casting Rods were made to satisfy the needs of the serious angler.

Create the ultimate Shimano lightweight combo with the Cumulus Casting Rods and the Shimano Core 50MG Casting Reel.

    Comments: This is a sweet rod. I have the 6'10" mh paired with a curado 50e and it is a very balanced rig. freakishly light and extremly sensitive. I have two cumaras and this is slightly more sensitive. It does not feel like a med/hvy though. More like a med/fast ,but that is ok with me I dont want to fish with a rod thats as stiff as a broom handle.

    Comments: Best rod ever.Super light and super sensative. Very comparable to the Gloomis glx. It is equal to the
    GLX or better.

    From: Hmong: Gentry, AR

    Comments: Out of my 30 plus rods I must say this was a great choice. It has truly spoiled me teamed up with Shimano Core 50 and sunline shooters 10lb fluro or Toray 20lb finnesse braid, this rod will make your next bass fishing trip a memory. This rod doesn't have a good backbone.
