Product Description


Shimano Alivio DX Specimen Rod

When you’re looking for a top quality carp rod there can be the temptation to believe that a more expensive rod is going to automatically give you better results on the bank. However, this doesn’t always have to be the case and Shimano’s Alivio DX rod is a cracking example of a budget rod giving you exceptional value for money. This is a rod which is designed for dedicated anglers who have a tighter budget. As such, this means that the rod doesn’t sacrifice any of the features of more expensive alternatives, and Shimano has made sure that the rod possesses many of the hallmarks of costlier rods. The low cost and high value of the Shimano Alivio DX makes this as ideal an outfit for the novice and experienced carp angler alike.

The biggest feature of the Alivio DX series is the material the rod blank is constructed from: Geofibre. This has been integrated with Shimano’s go-to traditional XT30 carbon. The pair create a fantastic low cost material with staggering qualities. Geofibre is a naturally derived material which delivers high rigidity, high compression strength, and high tensile strength, making it perfect for rods that sit in the middle to low end of the price spectrum. Shimano recognises that even the most dedicated anglers cannot always afford or justify splashing out on a really top end protect. The use of Geofibre in the Alivio rod series maintains the high performance that Shimano rods are famous for, but at a fraction of the cost. XT30 carbon is a tried and trusted stalwart of Shimano’s rod and reel manufacture and you’ll be able to find the material in a range of Shimano’s top end products. This ensures that the rod can be ultra-slim whilst still retaining high strength, so you never need to be worried when you’re playing a double figure carp.

The Alivio DX rod has an excellent casting ability and playing action, making it perfect for two or three rod set ups on day ticket waters across the UK. All of the rods across the Alivio series feature Shimano Hardlite guides, which begin with a 40mm butt guide, and this rod is no different. These guides are double legged, too, so you can be confident that they’ll hold their own even after an aggressive catch. DPS reel seat ensures that your reel is held in the perfect position throughout your cast and retrieve. With a shrink tube rubber split grip, you can be confident that you’ll never be at risk of loosing hold of this rod, even when your hands are wet or cold. The rod comes in two pieces, for ease of transportation whilst still ensuring that maximum performance strength is retained.

The Alivio DX series looks great too, and features fashionable understated cosmetics in a stylish black with silver accents. This allows you to mix and match rods from this series with other top end carp bankware and it ensures that you’ll always be left with a classy setup. There are a variety of Alivio DX rods to chose from, whether you’re after a 13ft rod for distance casting or a traditional 12ft outfit for mid to long range action, there is always going to be the perfect rod for your needs.

Shimano was established in 1921, originally producing top quality cycling equipment. The first of its fishing reels rolled from the production line in 1970 and the brand quickly became established as a world leader in the tackle industry. It now produces a range of products, including fishing line, luggage, and match fishing products.
