The Shimano Surf Leader Ultra Surfcasting Rod is the new flagship surf rod in the Shimano range. With Spiral X and Hi-Power X blank technology, this is the ultimate surf rod with unbelievable distance and casting abilities.

The Spiral X construction results in reduced torsion and ovalisation, while the Hi-Power X construction results in reduced blank twist and greater rod strength. Overall this creates a very strong, stiff and lightweight rod blank with incredible casting performance (both distance and accuracy). The Surf Leader Ultra comes in a 425cm length and is finished with Fuji SiC low rider guides.

  • Spiral X Construction
    Spiral X construction consists of three layers: a blank made of vertical fibers, an inner layer, and an outer layer both comprised of carbon tape that tightly winds the blank diagonally in opposite directions. By using this carbon tape in place of a conventional horizontal fiber sheet, Spiral X achieves enhanced torsional rigidity without adding extra weight. This in turn facilitates instant power transmission for precise casting and fighting fish. Through its exclusive lightweight structure, Shimano's Spiral X construction enhances your "catching power.


  • Hi-Power X
    In Hi-Power X construction, the blank's outermost layer is diagonally wrapped with carbon tape, which forms an array of "X" shapes. The width of the tape, its winding angle and the part of the rod being wrapped are fine-tuned according to the target fish species. The flexibility allows Shimano to adjust these wraps during construction for precise actions, enhanced overall strength and added twist resistance. In short, Hi-Power X construction delivers sharp and crisp rod control by the angler.
