Stunning good looks underline Sustain’s superior performance
If versatile performance combined with sensational good looks are the main considerations in a lure rod, then the Sustain range from Shimano truly delivers.
With such a wide choice of models in both extra-fast and moderate-fast actions, Sustain attains standards others fail to reach, says Shimano.
The satin black blank, with flashes of silver and gold, finished off with anodised metal trim, is the epitome of understated class. But there is more to the Sustain than good looks. The rods in the range offer versatility irrespective of which model is chosen. Anglers can swap styles with ease with a huge range of spinning and two baitcasting rods available.
The high modulus full carbon blank also benefits from Spiral X technology which helps overcome blank twist and increases rod strength while keeping weight low. The result is improved casting accuracy, more power transmission, improved lure control and better fish-playing performance.
All the rods are fitted with Fuji K-type Alconite guides and Shimani Ci4+ reel seats which reinforce the quality and effort put into the design of this ‘stunning’ rod.
