SHIMANO’S BACKBONE ELITE RODS HAVE PROVEN HUGELY POPULAR WITH THE OFFSHORE GAME FISHING SET, DELIVERING A RANGE OF LINE CLASS OPTIONS AT REALLY GOOD PRICES. AND THE 2018 LINEUP HAS JUST BEEN GIVEN A WELL-DESERVED TWEAK.

There are eight rods in all; a 10kg stick with fixed guides and a roller tip, and three 15kg options in a selection of fixed guides, fixed guides with a roller tip, or fully rollered. The same choices are available in 24kg, and finally there’s a serious 37kg weapon with a roller tip.

Of single-piece construction and 1.7m (5’ 7”) in length, the Backbone Elite blanks now utilise Shimano’s legendary TC3 material, which is the same three-ply graphite weave the early Tiagra Game Series rods were built on. The longEVA fighting foregrip has a new shape, which delivers a comfortable grip even with wet hands, and the guides, whether fixed or roller, are from Pacific Bay. The Slick Butts are durable and make it easy to remove a loaded up rod from a holder, while anodised aluminium reel seats and gimbals round out a very workmanlike package.

The cosmetic has also been upgraded to a traditional game fishing colour scheme of black, gold and silver, making these rods an even sweeter pairing with Shimano’s TLD and Tyrnos lever drag reels.
