Product Description


With a reputation for outstanding quality and design built up over years of consistently exceeding customer expectations, and delivered from their state of the art, dedicated factory, Shimano are one of the premier names in the world of fishing tackle and angling technology.  With the limited edition Tribal Velocity Cork Handle Carp Rod, exclusive to Angling Direct customers, Shimano have once again lived up to their reputation.

Available in either 10ft or 12ft lengths, with a choice of a 3lb or 3.25lb test curve, this premium-quality cork-handled rod is designed to be perfectly customised to effectively meet your angling goals, and marry your personal style to the ideal technology to bring results from that style.

An enviably slim, light blank, crafted from XT60 carbon with an integrated 3K carbon weave in the butt section, which comes in 40mm diameter on the 10ft rod, and 50mm diameter on the 12ft version, the Tribal Velocity is a sleek, sophisticated, ultra-strong blank that is one of the most effective yet affordable products to come out of the Shimano factory.

The size and test curve of rod you require will depend on your type and style of fishing discipline. For specialist specimen stalking at close quarters, and boat fishing, you're looking for the 10ft rod with a 3lb test curve.  If you're looking for a good all-round rod with superb playing action that can easily handle most waters and almost all fish, you'll want the versatile performance abilities of the 12ft rod, again with the easy, progressive action, heavy-duty 3lb test curve, while the 3.25lb test curve on a 12ft rod gives you powerful perfomance on long distance casts.

Cork-handled rods don't just look good; cork holds its form well, with improved water resistance and superior grip when handling a lively fish.  The lightness and natural bounce of cork also makes your rod super-responsive, so you'll probably feel a take before your bite alarm comes close to recognising it.

If your carp fishing regularly takes you out to gravelly swims, you'll appreciate the anti-scratch aluminium butt cap, while the plastic line clip prevents crimping and kinking on the line. Both the 10ft and 12ft rods taper to a 16mm tip, which is designed to limit crack-offs, and improve the performance of even novice carp anglers.  The anti-frap tip makes the Tribal Velocity ideal for those using braided or fluorocarbon lines, and is just another example of the many small, sophisticated touches that Shimano bring to their rod design to improve the fishing experience of anglers from all disciplines.

With a handwritten Velocity logo along the exclusive cork handle, this rod will stand out as something special for years to come, maintaining performance, style, and durability, and ensuring you never lose the feeling of fun and relaxed capability that first made you feel angling was for you.

The Shimano Tribal Velocity is the ultimate blend of stunning craftsmanship and superior engineering, providing you with the opportunity to add a genuine classic to your rod collection.  With Shimano, you'll never have to choose between appearance and performance, with attractive,  effective equipment designed and made as standard.

Shimano understand that angling is a perfect blend of art and science; the art of reading the water and thinking like the fish you're pursuing, and the science of knowing which bait will work best, how to use the weather conditions to your advantage, and effective technique, and have crafted an exemplary rod that brings the two strikingly together in a value-for-money offering that is a must-have for the dedicated carp angler.

Look good, fish better with this stunning limited edition rod from one of the leading names in high-quality performance fishing tackle.  Use your knowledge to find your fish, but trust the Shimano Tribal rod to bring you to your tribe.
