Designed to help anglers get in range of any fish that tends to swim along coastlines, the SpeedMaster Surf is a respected entry from Shimano. A heavy, long-range spinning rod that goes well with Shimano's Long Cast concept reels in particular, it's a firm favourite amongst anglers who know that they need to cast long and retrieve consistently.
Deep waters are familiar indeed to the SpeedMaster surf, and it's blend of strength, responsiveness and surprisingly lightweight design get the job done every time. Some great features common to Shimano, such as the long-cast guide spacing, make casting your line a breeze.
Our opinion: We were particularly impressed with the accuracy we could achieve when casting long with the SpeedMaster Surf. It looks like a solid favourite among the team for chasing after tarpon, snook, bluefish and redfish. Beaches, here we come!
