Product Description


Shimano Tribal Velocity Limited Edition Cork Handle Carp Rod

Available now exclusively to Angling Direct customers is the cork-handled version of the legendary Shimano Tribal Velocity carp rod.

We have gone the extra mile and secured yet another exclusive, giving you the chance to own a set of these brilliant rods finished with a beautiful cork handle. Hurry though, as they’re limited edition and guaranteed to sell quickly, especially at these prices. If you’re one of the thousands of loyal Shimano Tribal users that already has the original Tribal Velocity rods, you can now get your hands on a set of these cork-ers to compliment your carp armoury.

When you pick up a Shimano Tribal Velocity Cork rod, the first thing you’ll notice is how incredibly slim and strong the blank is. Made from XT60 carbon, with an integrated 3k carbon weave on the butt section for additional strength that gives it a sleek, sophisticated appearance, this is one of the slimmest, strongest, most affordable blanks available from Shimano.

As you can imagine, the action of the rod differs depending on the test curve. If you’re looking to invest in a top-quality all-rounder with great casting qualities that’s superb at playing fish, we would recommend the 12ft-long rod with a 3lb test curve because of its more progressive action. If you want a distance-casting, lead-punching machine, go for the 12ft, 3.25lb version instead. In the market for something that will suit smaller waters, boat fishing, stalking and close-quarter fishing? Then the 10ft, 3lb model is for you.

The 12ft rods in the Shimano Tribal Velocity Cork range are fitted with a 50mm butt guide and taper to a 16mm tip guide, while the 10ft rods are fitted with a 40mm butt guide, again tapering to a 16mm tip guide. The tip guide on all the rods is oversized to limit the possibility of crack offs, and it’s anti-frap too, which is particularly relevant when using fluorocarbon or braided lines. All Tribal Velocity Cork guides have double legs, increasing recovery rate.

The butt cap is made from anti-scratch aluminium, making it perfect for tackle tarts who find themselves fishing gravelly swims. The line clip on the Tribal Velocity Cork is plastic rather than carbon, but there’s a very good reason for this; following extensive testing alongside analysis of customer feedback, Shimano found that carbon line clips tend to crimp or kink the line, whereas plastic line clips keep it looking fresh off the spool.

The exclusive cork handle feels great in the hand, allowing for a firm grip even in wet and cold conditions, which is imperative when trying to land a hard-fighting fish. The finishing touch is the handwritten Velocity logo, length and test curve, which gives the Shimano Tribal Velocity Cork a custom look that will stand out on the bank and make your carp fishing experience all the more individual.
