Shimano Clarus Salmon Steelhead

Overall Customer Rating: 4.2 of 5 stars Shimano Clarus Salmon Steelhead Rods 4.2 out of 5 (5 Reviews)
Manufacturer: Shimano
Series: Salmon/Steelhead Rods
Model: Clarus Salmon Steelhead

We all know and love the Clarus series and you are going to love it even more. We are introducing a full spread of Salmon and Steelhead rods that are demanded by the serious anglers. We used some of the best fisherman and dealer input when creating these rods and they are all proud of what was built and so will you. Some of the key features would be the newly designed reel seats, Grade A cork handles, and an upgrade in the blank going to IM-8 which will be lighter and more sensitive which will help you catch more fish.

Shimano Clarus Salmon Steelhead

nice rod

Bought this rod for small pretadory fishing in the Mediterranean sea. Such as sea bass and barracuda.

Great rod for its price, very light and ballances with 2500-4000 sized shimano reels. It has a very sensitive tip and a stiff body. Cool graphite color and sexy guide wrapping, far greater than the older clarus model.

this rod could have been improved if the backgrip was a bit shorter than it is..since it's a bit too long for its action (1/4-1 oz)

Great for a beginner or someone who wants a salmon rod that can handle a steel head if one gets on. I have both handle styles in the 9', one is better for bait fishing the other better for casting all day. Both are great off the pier or in the river and light and sensitive enough to also work when I am salmon fishing but instead find the perch.

I keep 4 rods as backup 2 spinning 9ft 6-12 / 2 spinning 8'6 8-17.. Lighter rods are used for floats & jigs. Medium-Heavy for side planners, plugs & spoons.

Recently purchased the 9' 6" model for casting spoons or cranks and jigging for steelhead and browns and I absolutely love it! The fast action is perfect for feeling hits on the drop and the backbone is quick to respond on the hookset. Its a great multi purpose/species rod.
