Shimano, stop! You can't carry on treating us so well!
The Stimula is absurdly affordable. What does that mean for the quality? Well, it's funny isn't it; Shimano rods and reels are amazing regardless of their price. This is an entry-level rod that's ruggedly built and well suited to the kinds of species an entry-level angler will be targeting.
This is a simple and effective freshwater spinning rod, coming with a fetching aluminium-oxide set of guides and built with graphite-composite blanks.
Our opinion: This makes a great gift as part of a set of kit for a new angler. Despite what you may think for a product this price, it's very effective at its job. A great rod from a very well known Japanese brand.
