The aim is to create a shore casting rod that transcends the limits of the past by combining Shimano's advanced technology and know-how at a high level. Thorough pursuit of release from line trouble that was a chronic dissatisfaction of anglers. Adopted NEW [X guide] that overturns conventional wisdom, completed by thoroughly analyzing the correlation between reel size and line system. The original frame shape realizes performance that suppresses the root cause of line troubles caused by interference with blank touches and guide frames. The blank structure, which is the essence, adopts a "spiral X core" that brings high strength in all directions such as bending, twisting, and crushing. And the repulsive force that has been thoroughly enhanced exerts a powerful power as it bends, enabling sharp and light casting. In addition, the balance has been carefully researched so that the entire blank, including the grip, can bend smoothly, making it easier to cast at the right timing and reducing the impact and stress on the body during power fights. In addition, it is equipped with an original rubber grip end to support casting and fighting stability. When you experience these true values, a new stage of the shore casting game will open up.
Designed with a focus on balance, assuming targets other than bluish-skinned fish. It is mainly assumed to be used in coastal waters and rocky shores. In recent years, in such a field in the near sea, a so-called micro bait pattern, etc., is assumed, in which blue fish eats whitebait with a smaller silhouette than general baitfish such as silver-stripe round herring and sardines. Based on such a micro bait pattern, the S100MH aims to overcome tough conditions with lure rotation regardless of size and rod work that assists in drawing out lure action. As a rod that enables a variety of lure rotation, a plug with a silhouette of around 20g, a sinking pencil with low pulling resistance, a general diving pencil of around 60g with a size of 16 cm, and a jig with a jig of around 30g to 70g can be used in inshore waters. You can take action with lightness and operability like never before with heavy jigs that are often pitched.
The fields I can give as an image of specific areas of use are Izu to Wakayama, which are affected by the complicated tides created by the Kuroshio Current, the Seto Inland Sea, where the tide flows at once in a narrow terrain, and the raging winter Sea of Japan. Speaking of the nearby sea, it is simple, but the actual sea is not so. Always face the situation that makes the shore casting game disadvantageous. Because it is severe, the performance of this S100MH is utilized.
