The Rod:
The team at Shimano Fishing NZ have developed a dynamic and versatile series of rods that has been designed to fit directly In to the kiwi market. The Shimano Vortex family features a Power-Carbon blank specially designed to take the knocks, an integrated glass tip so as to retain sensitivity from the bite to the fight and also enhance overall performance without compromise.

These features allow Kiwi anglers to take full advantage of the more traditional bait fishing techniques including the perfect match for the Shimano Baitrunner series, surfcasting options, landbased rock fishing, straylining with overhead reels and deploying baits In to the benthos for hapuku and the like.
The Shimano Vortex rod range has been designed by kiwi fishos for kiwi fishos - It's as simple as that!

The Reel:
The lightweight Torium is a solidly-built star-drag saltwater reel perfect for live bait or bottom-fishing applications. Packed with features like Super Stopper, Cross Carbon Drag, A-RB (Anti-Rust Bearings) and High Efficiency Gearing (HEG), the Torium has it where it counts.

Shimano's Torium A series reels have been designed to create a compact, rigid and powerful salt water overhead reel with excellent castability and the durability expected by saltwater anglers.

Features include: Compact design using S-Compact body. Power, rigidity, durability. A key element to the new Torium reels, the S-Concept Body feature results in a reel that feels one size smaller in your hand, plus offers durability. The B side sideplate (A side has the handle, drag adjustment and cast control knob) Is all one piece, contributing to both rigidity and in-the-hand palming comfort.

E.I. surface treatment to improve corrosion resistance. With E.I. a second layer of surface treatment is added after the anodizing process. This treatment is forced into any micro sized surface impurities, giving salt no place to adhere and no chance for corrosion to start. Cross Carbon drag giving the reel smother and more durable drag performance. The ideal material for the high drag pressure setting, with smoothness and consistent performance.
