The Sakana II shore spin combo is a land-based all-rounder, built for use off the beach and/or off the rocks. The rod is small enough to be easily handled and used all day long, but still long enough to get a massive cast out of it, and also to keep your line above the waves and wash. The reel is perfect too, a compact 5000 size holds all the line you'll need whilst keeping weight to a minimum.
All of the new Shimano Sentire Sakana II combos are high quality combos designed and built in collaboration with Tackle World and Shimano pro anglers to suit a wide range of Australian conditions. They're a far better than average quality outfit at a very affordable price.
The Rod - Shimano Sentire Sakana II 902 6-8kg 2pce Rod
As I said, the Shimano Sentire Sakana II 902 is ideal for land-based fishing i.e. the beach or rocks. It could be used effectively for both bait and lures due to its composition and action.
It's built on a high quality 24 ton Toray graphite blank, which is lightweight, super responsive and very sensitive to vibrations so you don't miss a bite.
The guides are the latest tangle-free Fuji Fazlite K Frame guides: strong, super smooth and durable.
The butt section is a custom EVA split butt built for comfort and performance especially when working lures and soft plastics.
It has a medium-fast taper which is ideal to suit a bigger mix of fishing types. This means when the rod is loaded up i.e. a fish is on, the rod bends in the top half/third of the rod, giving it plenty of sensitivity and action up the light end, but still holding a lot of power down the bottom of the rod so you can fight bigger fish with no dramas.

The Reel - Shimano Sedona FI C5000XG Reel
The Shimano Sedona FI Reels are similar to the rod, quality at an affordable price.
They've literally stepped up a gear from their previous models, with the addition of Shimano's Hagane gear - a cold-forged gear that's stronger, lighter and smoother than the standard machine-cut gears.
4 ball bearings ensure smooth operations and and long lasting performance.
11kg of drag gives you plenty of stopping power so you can handle the odd big salmon run, smaller kingfish diving for the reef or a jewfish that just took your bait.
The 6.2:1 gear ratio is quite fast, perfect if you're cranking lures or soft plastics back as fast as you can when chasing pelagics like salmon, small tuna and kingfish.
