The Shimano Abyss SW Stand Up Game Rod 5ft 6in 50-80lb 2pc comes from the Shimano Abyss range of blue water-centric rods, which have utilised the best rod-building technology available. This has led to a range of dynamic, lightweight but very strong rods, that can tame the most powerful species like Kingfish, Bass, Hapuku, Tuna, Billfish and Broadbill Swordfish.

The design brief from the top was clear - engineer a series of rods that not only look the business cosmetically from the tip to the butt section but must complete MSL tests of well over specified line ratings at 45 degrees and 60 degrees respectively, also, the Shimano ABYSS range needed to be able to handle the tough rigours of day-to-day charter work - no easy task! So Shimano NZ in conjunction with Tony Orton from Offshore Adventures testing began and with only minor tweaks from the first cut samples the Shimano ABYSS range was born. Literally hundreds of hard fighting kingfish, hapuku, huge sharks and billfish have been caught using the entire Shimano ABYSS range of rods!
