Designed for tuna trolling in the Mediterranean, the Vengeance Stand-Up Spiral is a very affordable rod that is fitted with a unique spiral guide set-up which greatly improves the playing action when under extreme pressure. Don't be fooled by the affordability of Vengeance Stand-Up Spiral. It might be our entry-level stand-up rod, but it packs all of the power of its far more expensive brothers in the Shimano range. These unique rods have been designed by Mediterranean tuna experts to provide you with an affordable solution when trolling and are designed with spiral guide placement which wraps around the rod enabling the line to follow the fighting curve. When bent, the line is held away from the blank by the guide placing producing a better action, with minimal sideways twist, enabling you to apply maximum pressure. With a name like Vengeance you just know the blank will be up to any challenge it faces. And it needs to be, because nothing in the Mediterranean fights with the combined power, speed and determination of an angry tuna. Fitted with very strong Shimano Hardlite guides, which can overcome the pressure of either mono and thinner braided lines, a Shimano Aluminium reel seat will hold the largest multiplier reel securely, enabling you to crank down on the handle with confidence. Despite its undoubted strength, the two models in the Vengeance range retain a great fish-playing action under extreme pressure, and in testing compared very favourably with far more expensive rods. Available in 50lb and 80lb ratings, the seamless one-piece design never gets over-powered and still retains additional flex, even when you push it to the extreme. An ergonomic EVA grip ensures you stay totally connected, even with the pressure is fully on. With many recreational tuna anglers using inferior rods supplied by the charter boats they are fishing on, the Vengeance Stand-Up Spiral is affordable enough for you to now own your own specialist trolling rod.
