About This Rod
New and improved, the Shimano Crucial Spinning Rods offer the ideal actions, power and tapers for a range of bass worming and jigging applications. Now equipped with premium IM-10 graphite blanks, they are even lighter and more sensitive than ever before, and still provide the Crucial feel that anglers love. Fuji Alconite Guides at Fuji Concept Spacing also offer increased line control and casting distance, and the Alconite ceramic inserts provide 80% greater compression strength, while remaining 20% lighter than other ceramic inserts. Custom Shimano Reel Seats also provide direct access to the rod blank, and combined with split grip handles and EVA grips help reduce weight even further. Offering top quality components at a reasonable price, the Shimano Crucial Spinning Rods deliver tournament caliber performance.

Comments: ordered the 7'2MH worm/jig sensitivity on this rod is amazing i can feel every bump to the jig. Backbone on this rod is amazing swing 5 lbs on the boat with ease, plus warranty is amazing so no worries about the rod snapping.
Cons: rod is tip heavy, could just be the mh. pros: sensitivity, reel seat clicks in place so never slips.
Comments: I have the 6'10" medium and its a awesome rod. I wish tackle warehouse would list what technique these rods have marked on them. My 6Ã¢Â•ÂË™10" is labelled as a jerkbait rod. Come on guys how hard is it to put that in the rod specs. Better than an avid? No but still a great rod.
Comments: fish st.croix avids and st.croix legends,and I must say the crucial is equal if not better then my avids very impressed good job shimano.

Comments: super light! bought the 6'8'' ML for darter heads and small 3/16 football and ball head jigs. it's etched as a fluke rod, which is ok, i'll use it for that too, although i like a M action rod for flukin. It doesn't say that it's a fluke rod in the description. Since they are technique stecific, I wish TW had that info listed in the description so we knew that when ordering.

Comments: Great rod for the money!!! Light, strong, and sensitive. I have the 6' 8" MH fast action paired up with a shimano saros 2500 and it balances out perfect.
