Shimano Game Type J Conventional Jigging Rods

Model: GTJC60MA

2 In stock, ready to be shipped

The world of jigging continues to evolve with the integration of cutting-edge rod and reel technologies, innovative and effective jig shapes, and anglers are exploring new waters with this proven fish-catching method. The next evolution of the Game Type J series of rods incorporates Shimano’s cutting-edge technology to create rods that elevate overall jigging performance with an exceptional sensitivity. The new Game Type J rods integrate Shimano’s patented Hi-Power X and Spiral X Core technologies to increase power transmission through the rod while also reducing rod twist under load. Game Type J spinning models up to Heavy power feature a CI4+ Reel Seat to decrease weight for all-day jigging comfort while also increasing the sensitivity for better bite detection. Casting and spinning models with Heavy power and above incorporate Fuji reel seats for increased durability when pulling on big fish. Combine the new Game Type J rods with the lightning-fast reeling power of Shimano’s Ocea Jigger reels, the instant hook-setting power of PowerPro, and the full lineup of Shimano jigs, and anglers can harness the benefits of the best jigging tools on the mark. There is no equal for targeting both pelagic and reef fish than that of Shimano’s Game Type J flagship series of jigging tackle.

Spiral X Core is Shimano's newest and most advanced blank construction technology. By integrating Spiral X carbon tape construction with Toray Nanoalloy® technology, Spiral X Core constructed blanks benefit from up to 10% more torsional rigidity and up to 15% more compressional rigidity than rods built with Spiral X. Shimano is unique to the market by applying by high-strength carbon tape with this unique and patented Spiral X construction.
Hi-Power X construction uses diagonally-wrapped carbon tape to form an array of "X" shapes on the rod blank's outermost layer. The width of the tape, its winding angle and the part of the rod being wrapped are fine-tuned according to the target fish species. This manufacturing process allows Shimano to adjust these wraps during construction for precise actions, enhanced overall strength and added twist resistance. In short, Hi-Power X construction delivers sharp and crisp rod control for the angler.construction uses diagonally-wrapped carbon tape to form an array of "X" shapes on the rod blank's outermost layer.

CI4 is a Shimano original material reinforced with carbon fiber that is lighter and has a higher strength than conventional resin material. CI4+ is an advanced version of the original CI4 material and is 2.5x more rigid than its predecessor. The use of CI4+ for the reel seat increases sensitivity and reduces weight while also delivering remarkable rigidity for perfect reel fixation and better rod efficiency.
