Shimano's Grappler Type J Jigging Rods is the most versatile of the series coming in a wide variety of different lengths and powers to accommodate your target species of fish.  From bucktailing or using soft plastics on the reefs to butterfly jigging tuna, there's a rod in this series for you.  With a moderate fast action on all the different variations, there is enough backbone in this rod to put the power to the fish and steer them away from structure while also being the ideal action for working bucktails, soft plastics, jigs, and many other lures.

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.
