Shimano Vortex 13'6 Surf Rod and Shimano Aerlex XSB 10000

The Vortex and Aerlex combo is perfect for targeting the Rig and Elephant fish off our Canterbury Beaches, the long cast spool on the Aerlex 10000 XSB has little friction to help get that extra casting distance. The Vortex Surf rod is 13'6 to help hold your line above the waves and the perfect length to fire those baits out past the surf.


The Reel
The new Shimano Aerlex 10000 XSB Long Cast Surf Reel offers a vast improvment on the previous model. This long cast big pitt reel is designed to help you achieve maximum casting distance to help reach waters that occupy coastal species. It features a long cast ARC spool which allows for minimum spool lip friction for casting and line release. An additional bearing on the main gear improves the overall smoothness of rotation plus the handle has been upgraded to machined aluminium to improve overall strength. The Aerlex XSB also features a worm driven oscillating system (Aerowrap II). This offers a much slower oscillation and more consistent line lay, that is essential for spool release and casting distance. So if you want to go the distance, the Shimano Aerlex 10000 XSB Long Cast Surf Reel is perfect for you.


The Rod
The Shimano Vortex Surf Rod is a dynamic and versatile rod that has been designed to fit directly into the Kiwi lifestyle. This rod features a Power-Carbon blank specially designed to take the knocks, an integrated glass tip so as to retain sensitivity from the bite to the fight and also enhance overall performance without compromise.
