Shimano Grappler Type LJ Jigging Rods
Shimano's Grappler Type LJ Jigging Rods are built for light jigging applications. They have a moderate-fast action, which is ideal for the fisherman bouncing bucktails or soft plastics on the bottom to give off lifelike action. For the Northeast fisherman, this is ideal for jigging fluke and seabass as the tip of the rod is fast enough to impart action on the bucktail/soft plastic but forgiving enough to withstand headshakes and keep the fish locked on the hook.
The Grappler series from Shimano features two of their newest rod blank technologies, Spiral-X and Hi-Power X. Both these technologies provide for a light, powerful, and sensitive blank, something all anglers certainly want. Spiral-X is a carbon tape tightly wrapped at an angle from the butt of the rod to the tip, which is done in two layers in opposite directions. This provides for torsional rigidity under load without adding weight to the blank itself. Hi-Power X is the rod's outmost layer being wrapped with carbon tape in an "X" pattern from the butt to the tip of the rod. Hi-Power X works in combination with Spiral-X to further tighten the carbon tape and ultimately prevents the "ovalization" of the rod. In short, Spiral-X and Hi-Power X combined with one another gives the angler the sharpness and control not seen in many other rods.
