Exceptional design, enhanced by Shimano’s very latest technology
Most of the performance advantages come from the Japanese blank technology used throughout the Aero Pro range. All 4 models are unique and for the first time are constructed from Shimano's very best Japanese carbon technology, SPIRAL X CORE and HI-POWER X plus Nanopitch technology.
Accurate and long range casting performance is essential for top anglers and the use of the latest carbon technology dramatically reduces blank twist when under pressure. You can actually feel this when casting and will notice immediately how your feeder flies more accurately towards your target. Another advantage of this stunning carbon technology is the way the force you put into the cast is used with maximum efficiency throughout the rod, generating increased tip speed. The result, especially in the Distance models, is longer casts for the same amount of effort.
And there's more. Remarkable casting performance isn’t advantageous if you can’t land the fish you hook and all models in the Aero Pro feeder range come with a choice of three different one-piece tip sections, with built in Hi-Power X quivertips. The result is a seamless curve, as each top section has been slightly adjusted to balance perfectly with the strength of the tip. Whilst this also helps casting performance, it is fish-playing where this advantage becomes very apparent. The smooth curve is faultless and pressure on the tip is smoothly transferred to the rest of the rod as it takes on an almost elastic type quality, even in the longest 13’ Distance model. The result is more confident fish-playing and more fish in the net.
As you would expect, such a premium range of rods demands the very best fittings and the Aero Pro doesn’t disappoint. A super lightweight CI4+ reel seat blends perfectly into the contoured EVA handle and the use of the latest Fuji K-Type SiC guides reduces weight and friction in equal measures.
A new era is feeder rod technology begins…
The Aero Pro feeder range is set to be the benchmark by which other feeder rods will be judged in the future. Each of the four models has been designed and tested extensively on a wide range of venues throughout Europe, to ensure they meet and exceed the expectations of the world’s best feeder anglers. The perfect example of the Aero tag line ‘precision to win’, the new Aero Pro feeder range offers the ultimate feeder rod experience.
