Shimano engineered the flagship Terez BW series of offshore rods with guidance from tournament-winning captains to perform at the highest level. The comprehensive series comprises rods built to conquer any offshore species with models specifically designed for high-speed trolling, slow trolling, deep-dropping, swordfishing, bottom fishing, or live-bait fishing. Shimano constructed the Terez BW blanks utilizing premium rod technologies — Hi-Power X, Spiral X and UD Glass blank construction — to create the best-in-class durability and feel for the offshore environment. This combination of rod technologies increases the structural rigidity of the rods so that they remain true under load while enabling anglers to efficiently transfer power through the blank for improved performance when targeting hard-fighting game fish. The Terez BW series features premium componentry with Winthrop, Fuji and Aftco guides for battle-tested performance. Slick Butt models incorporate Fuji DPS-H reel seats while Uni-Butt models are sold as blade-only, allowing anglers to customize each rod to meet their personal preferences.
