Shimano Maikuro

The name Shimano Maikuro, from the Japanese word meaning micro, is a new series of nano graphite technology rods from Shimano.

The Shimano Maikuro have a sleek, modern design with a matt black finish, white, silver and black trims, and stylish butt configurations incorporating the new Sea Guide carbon hooded reel seat.

The butt design of the Shimano Maikuro is a combination of cork and extra hard EVA, which was selected for the best transmission of bites and sensitivity in the angler’s hand.

Thanks to the highly responsive graphite blanks, this series is best suited to finesse lure-casting situations.

There are rods that can be used for targeting light estuary species, freshwater fish like trout or yellowbelly, and even heavier coastal and reef dwellers like snapper and pearl perch.

From top to bottom, this Shimano Maikuro series offer a number of impressive options, perfect for avid lure fishos.
