Main Usage

Shimano Trevala Casting Rod is an award winning rod. It won the American Sporting Association award and was declared the best in the rods category. It is a highly innovative rod which can be used alongside high-powered and high-speed rods. The rod features Shimano TC4 construction, Fuji reel seat and Fuji Hardloy guides.

It also comes with custom shaped EVA rear grip and fore grip, which ensure that the rod is well balanced and comfortable during the jigging. This rod is quite sensitive and guarantees a good fishing experience thanks to the TC4 Construction technology that Shimano incorporated in its manufacturing. The TC4 construction material is used to rip the inner layer as well as the outer spiral high modulus graphite.

Product Features

Power :

Shimano Trevala Casting Rod is a lightweight rod with a line weight of about 4-8 lb. It is suitable for lighter lines. The rod can lift a load of 20 lb. and is suitable for small and medium size fish. It is moderately stiff but can withstand heavy tackles.

The rod is ideal for deep fishing but allows for a quick and fast action. Anglers have tested this line in the water with a thick cover and have found it to be very effective. Even though, it is designed to perform optimally in clear water.


The rods blank is made of graphite which is generally stiff. Thus, it requires more force for the rod to bend. This means that the rod is less flexible hence it is only suitable for casting lighter baits

. However, when you buy this rod, you will be sure that you will set the hook faster hence it is an ideal rod if you were to pull a fish under a heavy cover. It is moderately stiff and is designed in such a way that it doesn’t rip the hook out of its prey’s mouth.

Recovery, Sensitivity, and Brittleness:

The Shimano Shimano Trevala Casting Rod is lightweight thus it recovers moderately slowly when it is cast. Because of the minimal friction that occurs after the line has left the guide the casting distance is significantly reduced.

Note that the rod is made of graphite, which increases the overall sensitivity. It can transmit the feelings to the angler as soon as a bait moves closer to it.

That is important since it enables the angler to set the hook and prepare to battle the fish. However, since graphite is brittle, the rod should not be subjected to a lot of weight lest it breaks.


The Shimano Trevala Casting is a light weight rod that is ideal for anglers who spend long hours fishing. Since it is light weighted, it is sensitive, and the angler will feel it when the prey bites the lure or when it hits bottom.

It is a flexible rod which can serve the angler for a long time if it is handled with care. Therefore, if you are an angler interested in fly fishing or going for a fishing trip in waters, this is the most recommended rod.


If you are planning a fishing adventure, you need to consider the Shimano Trevala Casting rod. It is ideal for bottom fishing since it has a great feel and action.

It is also ideal for deep retrieve and can suitably be used to fish the porgies, fluking, porgies and sea bass. The rod can budge large fish at the bottom of the sea and pump them to the boat.
