Shimano Ocea Plugger Full Throttle Rods – Shimano’s flagship offshore popping and plugging rods, the Ocea Plugger Full Throttle utilize Spiral X and Hi-Power X blank construction. The redesigned models have more powerful mid-sections than previous models and an improved cosmetic design. Shimano’s patented Spiral X blank construction reduces blank twist and leads to longer, more accurate casting. Less blank twist also makes it easier to pull on big fish and takes pressure off the angler. Hi-Power X technology reduces ovalization and increases strength to protect from breakage. Spiral X combined with Hi-Power X provides anglers a series of popping and plugging rods with a best-in-class strength-to-weight ratio.

SPIRAL X
Through its exclusive lightweight structure, Shimano’s patented Spiral X construction enhances catching power for anglers. Spiral X construction consists of three layers: a middle layer of vertical fibers as well as inner and outer layers, 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 compression rigidity and increased torsional rigidity without adding extra weight. This in turn facilitates instant power transmission for precise casting and fish fighting.
HI-POWER X
Hi-Power X construction uses diagonally-wrapped carbon tape to form an array of “X” shapes on the rod blank’s outermost layer. 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. This manufacturing process 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 for the angler.
