"Shimano Clarus centerpin rod."

Review (Tell us Why?: Hi i have just bought a clarus centerpin rod from Shimano, 11"3" I use it for float fishing on mainly still waters in Scotland, where i live, i like to make up my rod before i leave the house, i fix the float, shots, and hook lenth, so when i arrive at the water i can be fishing in minutes, as it is in 4 sections , i set it up then break it down to 2 halfs then just put it back to full lenth at the river bank where i am fishing, i was so impressed with the rod i bought a second one, so i can now set the two rods up with different floats etc, to suit different conditions. the rod is very light and feels balanced, and it looks good, and of course being a Shimano it is well made, i would certainly recommend this fine rod. The service provided by the guys at Gorge fly shop, is first cl****, so i recommend you say hi, to Travis, Lyndsey,&co, in HoodRiver, many thanks Lyndsey.

"Shimano Clarus 11"

Review (Tell us Why?: Hi, living in the U.K, we are spoiled for choice, when it comes for all types of rods, i was surprised to see you can still buy graphite rods in north america, with sliding ring reel holders, we have not had them for many yrs, all rods for sale in the u.k. are made from high grade carbon fibre, with screw down reel seats, anyway Shimano are a very respected company in angling, so i took a gamble on the clarus, The rod it,s self feels well balanced , with an understated look, it has been upgraded to im8, so it is very light, it has a soft action, so if you hook a big fish, just let the rod do it,s job, the softer action will take out the fight of any hard fighting fish, it,s a pity it does not have a screwdown reel seat, but never the less it is a fine looking rod, and being in 4 sections it is perfect for the roving angler, ideal for trotting on the river, or even just float fishing on still waters with a waggler type float, yes i would recommend this rod, I live in Scotland 4500mls from Hood River,on an other continent, but i choose to buy from the Gorge Fly shop, because the service is so good, yes i recommend the team there, many thanks Lyndsey, keep up the good work. 5+++++
