Established in 1921, Shimano is a Japanese based company with strong environmental ethics, evolving from creating cycling equipment to the production of top-quality fishing reels in 1970. UK anglers know that when you buy from Shimano you can be sure that the environmental impact of the product has been carefully considered, from conception to production.
Available in two different rod lengths, the Shimano Aero X5 Match Float Rod comes as either 13ft or 14ft, both of which are designed for various float techniques like stick float and waggler fishing. With a casting weight of 20g, you can cast your bait and float a medium to long distance.
With a carbon blank construction, the match float rods are super light, well balanced and highly responsive. The blanks also provide a beautiful rod action which is fast enough for a proper distance cast with a float and a solid hookset.
Incredibly flexible, the Aero X5 rods will bend all the way through when a decent fish is hooked without the concern of any nasty snaps. This flexibility is paired with lightweight long leg guides which provide the ideal line guidance from the reels spool all the way till tip, enabling the right casting properties when match fishing.
