As far as medium freshwater spinning rods go, we think you'd be hard pressed to make a smarter choice than the SLX 6'9. The core of this spinning rod its its design based on 30-ton blanks. This means the SLX 6'9 can cover just about any fishing technique you ask of it - and it'll feel responsive in the hand and during cast or retrieve while you're at it.
As is the case with the impressive R&D pedigree common to Shimano products, this spinning rod has a host of lovely features that make it a treat to use. Titanium oxide semi-micro guides are striking and effective, and its combination of custom real seats and a high-density EVA grip means it'll sit snug in your hand as you enjoy the hobby of a lifetime.
Our opinion: 24-ton carbon construction, a lovely grip feel and a strength of rod that lets you go after a wide variety of fish. It's a lot in one place, and it's made possible thanks to Shimano's incredible commitment to development and improvement. Can't go wrong here.
