Shimano has added slick butts to the popular Terez series,including a complete lineup of full roller rods sporting AFTCO roller guides. The Terez Full Roller Slick Butt rods feature the Stuart Tuff Butt with an aluminum gimbal butt cap. The fast action 5'9" inch casting rods come in four fish-catching power ratings ranging from medium heavy to XX heavy. Like all rods in the Terez lineup, they are built with very small diameter TC4 High Modulus blanks that are extremely durable while offering a sensitive, lightweight feel. The slick butt design is the choice of top tournament anglers who need to quickly remove rods from holders and in and out of a gimbal or butt pad.
Shimano’s responsive TC4 High Modulus blank construction is a process that wraps a double inner horizontal layer of advanced, dynamic T glass with an inner and outer spiral layer of high modulus graphite. This creates a small diameter, lightweight rod that packs all the lifting power of much bulkier blanks in an easy to cast and handle design.
AFTCO roller guides provide easy casting and protect line and knots from fraying during long battles.
The Stuart Tuff Butt handle includes an aluminum gimbal butt cap (protected here by the removeable plastic cap) and ergonomic foreward grip design.
With the introduction of black to the Terez rod family in summer of 2013, the popular Shimano series of technique-specific rods now come in four colors.
