The Sakana II ultra light spin combo is perfect for fishing estuaries and small creek systems for your more finesse species like bass, bream, perch etc. It's really handy outfit for super light lures and soft plastics. The rod is long enough to get a good cast out of tiny lures and soft plastics, and the reel is a compact 2000 size with a shallow spool, which keeps weight to a minimum and casts to a maximum.
The new Shimano Sentire Sakana II combos are a high quality Shimano combos designed and built in collaboration with Tackle World and Shimano pro anglers to suit a wide range of Australian conditions. It's a far better than average quality outfit with an affordable price.
The Rod - Shimano Sentire Sakana II 722 1-4kg 2pce Rod
As I said, the Shimano Sentire Sakana II 722 is ideal for light estuary fishing conditions and species. At 7ft 2in it has the length to cast smaller and lighter lures and soft plastics really well. It could be used effectively for both bait and lures due to both 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 C2000HGS Reel
The Shimano Sedona FI Reels are similar to the rod, quality at an affordable price. The C2000HGS model is perfect for light estuary use as it's a shallow spooled reel so you don't need backing and always get a great cast out of the reel.
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.
The smaller 3kg drag is much better suited to light estuary fishing as you can make much finer adjustments to the drag before and during a fight i.e. turning the drag knob on this reel doesn't change the drag setting by much in comparison to reels with more drag.
The 6.0:1 gear ratio is nice and quick, which is good for getting the fish away from structure like tree branches, oyster leases, wharf pylons etc once they're hooked.
