Forming the most comprehensive series of freshwater trolling rods to date, the Shimano Talora Trolling Rods are completely redesigned for 2019. These rods feature the same classic actions that created the Talora legacy. Built on Shimano's renowned TC4 blanks, this new Talora series features models designed to cater to a variety of freshwater trolling techniques including dipsy diver, downrigger/planer board, leadcore, and kokanee fishing. All models are fitted with SeaGuide Aluminum Oxide guides except for the leadcore models, which feature SeaGuide Wire Frame guides to accommodate leadcore and wire lines. All models feature comfortable EVA handles, excluding the ultra-light kokanee rod which has cork handles. Shimano encourages anglers to pair their Talora rods with their Tekota level wind conventional reels for the ultimate freshwater trolling experience.
