Shimano Ocea offshore Jig Fishing Rods. The Shimano Ocea Offshore jigging range of spinning rods are bluewater thoroughbreds, and are a perfect example of what top of the range jigging rod should be, and is up to 20% lighter than previous models. The blanks used in Ocea offshore jigging range are based on TC4 - Toray graphite. This construction enables the rod to be light yet powerful. Not many rods could boast the ability to pull the extreme drag settings needed to fish deep water jigging techniques, yet be so light and responsive. The guides are a Fuji alconite K Guide, offering the fisherman, low friction and consequently very little wear on the braid for those extended battles. The action of the rod is fast.
