Tackle Tuesday- Shakespeare Sigma Specimen Combo

Selecting the right gear can be daunting, with so much tackle to choose from its difficult to know what is of paramount importance and what is unnecessary, especially if you’re a novice angler. To encourage you to get out on the bank, Shakespeare has created the perfect combination with its Sigma Specimen Rod and Reel Combo.

These Sigma Shakespeare rod and reel combinations are especially designed for specialist angling with the kit including the Sigma rod and reel loaded correctly with a suitable line. These high-quality tackle sets have proven to land some seriously great catches and wins.

Buying the combined rod, reel and line not only makes a perfect set up designed by Shakespeare but saves you, the angler, some pounds that can be then spent on your baits or towards a new fishing chair! The combinations secured the perfect balance between rod and reel that can perform great at a variety of different venues and fishing styles.

There are two option available in these combination kits that come in the choice of rod length. The 11ft Sigma Specimen rod comes with a 40-size reel with free spool. The 11ft Sigma model sports titanium oxide insert guides throughout and is constructed from a 24 Ton carbon blank. The rod also includes a hook keeper to make pre-set up easier and packing away simple.

To assist in the assembly of the combo kit, both rods boast a screw down EVA reel seat with the mix of a quality cork handle with an EVA rod butt on the rod. Both rods are split into two pieced to make ease of transportation without sacrificing the blank strength.

The 11 footer kit comes with a Sigma reel of 3+1 bearings, a large diameter bail wire and oversized line roller to make those big casts a breeze. The reel handle is positioned on the left and offers a felt drag material.

The second option is the 12ft Twin Tip combo. This is the perfect rod for targeting the monster specimen fishes with the two-piece, 12 foot rod sporting the free spool reel set up that creates a winning formula.

Again, the rod blank is made from a carbon composite, sports 25 guides and sports a cord handle with EVA butt. The reel is similar in that it is size 40 and boasts a gear ratio of 5:0:1 and five bearings.

Both variations of the combo comes supplied in a robust zipped semi rigid rod sleeve (with reel pouch) to protect the gear. The reels are also spooled with quality mono so you are ready to fish for the get go.
