Shimano Scimitar AX Rock 6ft 2pc Rod for Less

If your preference is to potter about the river, stream, lake or even coastal estuary, the Shimano Scimitar Rock AX offers the right amount of power and action to land your favourite species with ease.

It's designed with a high-end look and fish-catching features that will exceed your expectations.  Although the Scimitar has an entry level price point, it still has a crisp tip action for increased lure action.  The rod is also fitted with Shimano hardlite guides and made from a combination of XT40 carbon with added Geo Fibre for strength.

The Scimitar is the perfect rod for LRF and with a casting weight of 1-4g, it's ideal of casting small jig heads and micro lures. It's also great for targeting perch, trout and small pike on small lures.
