BANTAM [RODS]

Shimano has decided to entirely revamp what the Bantam family of bass rods is able to offer to anglers. Simply put, the difference between the old and the new lineup of Bantam rods is the Spiral X Core technology which has now been integrated into the manufacturing process of the blanks in the new lineup. Retaining its performance, these rods aim to also retain the trust and confidence anglers have had in them since the launch of their preceding models.
