Specifically designed with the sensitivity required for egg rolling but also enough stiffness to set a softbait or spinning lure in any situation. This rod lives up to its name, defiantly a classic freshwater rod.
Our GLADIUS® Canal Classic rod is designed and developed in Japan, and incorporates only the best components. This includes a high performance 40 tonne graphite blank, FUJI® reel seat and ultra light ALPS® guides. We recommend fishing with a line weight of 4-12lb and a lure weight of 4-18g.
What you need to know
When you're fighting big fish, the tip of your rod can come under a lot of load. So replacement rod tips are available to keep your Canal Classic in tip top condition and delivering the level of sensitivity you need.
One of the most common misconceptions when fishing the canal system is “the fish are 20-30lb, so I need to use a rod and line to match the weight of the fish”. These fish are smart so it’s important to present your bait to the fish as naturally as possible, using a light rod and line.
