Shakespeare Sigma Hybrid Telescopic Rod
Shakespeare is a brand with over a century of angling heritage to its name. With an impressive reputation for value and quality, Shakespeare aims to make angling accessible to all – in particular those anglers who don’t have a huge budget but simultaneously don’t want to compromise on quality and performance of their tackle. All the tackle that Shakespeare produces comes out of its huge factory – the largest tackle factory in the world – and the brand supplies tackle retailers around the world with its unique and high quality tackle. The Sigma rod series aims to supply a rod for every occasion and it certainly delivers with this Hybrid Telescopic rod – perfect for the travelling and roving angler.
Shakespeare’s Sigma Hybrid Telescopic Rod is unique in many ways, not least because of its innovative design. Where most telescopic rods are telescopic down their entire length, the Sigma Hybrid is a two part rod. This means that the top section of the rod is telescopic but the handle is one continuous piece of carbon. This not only ensures that the overall length of the rod (when packed down) is actually smaller than most other traditional telescopic rods but it also does wonders for the balance and action of the rod. Some telescopic rods fall down in these areas and for many years the travelling angler has accepted this as an unwelcome compromise which they are forced to make in order to get an easily transportable rod. This isn’t a sacrifice that you have to make with the Shakespeare Sigma Hybrid Telescopic Rod and it excels where other rods fail.
As might expect with a telescopic rod, the blank of this Shakespeare Sigma Hybrid Telescopic Rod is exceptionally compact. This makes this rod the perfect solution for the travelling or mobile angler who needs their gear to be small but isn’t prepared to compromise on quality. If you’re someone who likes to have a small selection of tackle in the boot of your car at all time (should an angling occasion arise last minute) then this is the perfect tool for you too. It is also an exceptionally lightweight package, with the 8ft rod in the range weighing in at a touch under 180g and the 9ft rod weighing in at just over 190g. Not only does this rod feature a cushioned reel seat but it also benefits from a high-quality Hyperlon handle grip. These are both features which far exceed those expected on a rod of this price. The Shakespeare Sigma Hybrid Telescopic Rod is also supplied in its own carrying tube, as standard. Not only does this protect the rod in transit but it also provides you with the perfect storage solution, ensuring that your rod won’t sustain damage during your off season. This carry tube also makes transportation of the rod easy and hassle-free, too.
The Sigma Hybrid is a multi-purpose rod and is suitable for all fresh and saltwater disciplines. Whether you’re a predator angler on the hunt for your next personal best pike or you’re a sea fishing fan looking to target the water from a boat, this is the perfect rod for you. It is available in either 8ft or 9ft lengths, each of which have their own recommended casting weights. The smaller 8ft rod is perfect for casting lures between 10g and 20g, whereas the larger 9ft rod is ideal for casting anywhere between 15g and 40g, giving you a huge amount of range to tackle a huge variety of species. This rod also showcases an impressive casting distance, especially for its length.
If you’re looking for a top quality telescopic rod then you can’t go wrong with this offering from Shakespeare.
