The Wait is Finally Over!
Many of you have been hammering our inbox with questions about rumored Shimano releases set to come out this year. Well... The wait is finally over and those rumors are now reality with some of the most anticipated upgrades that Shimano has rolled out in a long time.
The Advantages of Preordering
Much like with the G. Loomis NRX+ release, we anticipate every single item we have on order to be presold, meaning you should preorder NOW if you want to be amongst the first to experience these latest and greatest releases from Shimano.
We expect all of these new releases to be received by us in the first week of April and we have no estimates as to when the next shipment(s) will be received after that. Preordering now will secure your place at the front of the line waiting to receive these new items!
A Fresh Take on an Established Winner
What can be said about Expride that hasn't already been discussed? This series has always offered premium quality and technology at an attractive price point. The Expride Series punches up at many other rods valued at 2x their price and we anticipate this latest iteration to carry on that established reputation in spades.
A Name Synonymous with Superior Strength
We see fewer Bantams traded in than just about any other reel on the market. The reasoning behind this is likely do to the near indestructible nature of these reels.
At no point when fishing a Bantam will you ever feel outmatched. Whether you're fishing it straight out of the box around heavy vegetation or throwing a deep diving crank bait 5 years into the reel's life, you will never feel an ounce of fleeting confidence with this reel in your hand.
The Standard is The Standard
The amount of innovation that is packed into this reel is mind boggling. The addition of Ci4+ has allowed Shimano engineers to really flex their ability to add features without sacrificing weight. We have no doubt that this reel will live up to the Stella name and we are absolutely anticipating that it will establish a new standard of which all other reels will be compared to.
Another Heavy Hitter Entry-Level Spinning Reel
Shimano showed us that they are capable of delivering a punch with an entry-level spinning reel last year with their revamped Nasci FC and Nexave FI, so we're beyond excited to get our hands on this similarly priced Sahara FJ. The addition of a single piece handle and stamped Hagane gearing will likely set this reel apart from all other reels in this price point in terms of dependable rigidity.
A Killer Crank for Every Shallow Water Scenario
Shimano made it known that they have intentions of disrupting the lure market last year with the introduction of the World Minnow Jerkbait. They're continuing their headfirst dive into bait production with the release of the Macbeth series of crankbaits.
The Macbeth series will have you covered in every shallow water cranking scenario. We're most excited to hit our highly pressured Indiana water with the Macbeth 50 this Spring, as it offers a compact and highly buoyant body that will make it easy to navigate thick laydowns while attempting to trigger a reaction strike.
