The Asquith series is the culmination of global cooperation in design, materials, and manufacturing techniques. Built on Shimano's proprietary Spiral X platform, the Asquith boasts superb power transfer from tip to hand, quick recovery, and increased sensitivity. Designed by world casting champion Steve Rajeff, the Asquith is an exploratory step into the future of rod manufacturing technology. With fast actions, generous power levels, titanium guides, and exceptionally light swing weight, all rods in the series excel in fishing situations where developing high line speed and making precise casts means success.

  • SIC Titanium Recoil snake guides
  • SIC Titanium stripper guides
  • Full wells flor grade cork grip
  • Custom aluminum reel seat with CI4+ insert and fighting butt
  • Aluminum rod tube with cloth rod bag
  • Designed & handcrafted in Woodland, Washington – Blanks rolled in Kumamoto, Japan

 

 

TECHNOLOGY

SPIRAL X

Shimano’s proprietary Spiral X technology utilizes triple layer construction consisting of an oblique fiber core layer, a longitudinal middle layer, and a reverse-oblique fiber outer layer. This unique construction increases rigidity without increasing weight, providing virtually instantaneous power transmission when casting or fighting a fish.

SIC TITANIUM STRIPPER + TITANIUM RECOIL SNAKE

The perfect marriage of strength, weight savings, and stealth. While our ultra-light titanium snakes look the part of a traditional guide, the added benefit of flexibility is great insurance when storing your sticks in a skiff or drift boat.
