Shimano Game Type Slow J Conventional Jigging Rod – GTSJC66MHA - Review
The Shimano Game Type Slow J Conventional Jigging Rods are considered to be the ultimate tool for slow pitch jigging. These rods are incredibly advanced and are designed to give anglers more control and better action with their jigs. The Game Type Slow J has a softer action and loads more parabolically than other jigging rods, allowing anglers to use lighter braid and leader for a more fluid connection between rod movements and the jig.
These rods are built on blanks that use Shimano's Spiral-X Core and Hi-Power X construction, making them remarkably strong and flexible at the same time. The Spiral X construction consists of multiple layers of carbon tape that are tightly wound diagonally in opposite directions, resulting in enhanced torsional rigidity without adding extra weight. This construction makes the rod very responsive and allows for instant power transmission while casting or jigging, as well as improving fish fighting capabilities. The Spiral X blanks are 250% more structurally rigid and 180% less prone to twisting compared to standard blanks.
In terms of components, no expense is spared with these rods. They are equipped with Shimano Ci4+ Reel Seats and Fuji SiC guides. The Shimano Ci4+ Reel Seat is widely recognized as one of the most comfortable and sensitive reel seats available. Combined with the EVA foam handle, it creates a minimalistic style handle that ensures all-day jigging comfort and uninterrupted rod action.
The Game Type Slow J is suitable for fishing deep with heavy jigs or shallow with a delicate presentation. It is considered to be the best choice for slow pitch jigging for both pelagic and reef dwelling game fish.
