The Jabbers Shore Reaper is not your average seabass rod. Rather, it is designed originally for the extensive Indian shoreline that is packed with monster size mangrove jacks, Malabar groupers, barramundis and Indian threadfin salmon.
Fishing from the shore in the tropical climate can be punishing and a lightweight but powerful rod brings relief.
The Jabbers Shore Reaper is equipped with an extra fast tip for swift engagement with species that live among the rocks, stopping them before they have a chance to cut you off. The cross-weave design spanning the entire length of this 9ft blank packs plenty of power when engaged in battle, yet unleashes the energy of your cast in the smoothest transition, for great distance and accuracy. Armed with Fuji guides and reel seat.
274 cm / 9′
All the joints on the Jabbers Shore Reaper have been carefully constructed to provide a good fit. However, with continuous use, there is a chance that the joints may start to loosen due to wear and tear. The use of a thin layer of ferrule wax will eliminate this problem. Jabbers recommend the use of Loon Outdoors Graffitolin Ferrule Wax. For proper application of ferrule wax, please refer to instructions on Loon Outdoors website.
After exposure to salt water, high temperature and humidity, there is a chance that the joints become hard to dismantle. Do not try to twist the Shore Reaper by holding onto the guides. This may damage the guides. Instead, wash the joints with fresh water, use a rod wrap and coil snugly around the blank. This provides an excellent grip on the blank and will help you dismantle your rod with ease. If this does not work, further cool down your rod with freshwater and try again.
All Jabbers rods like the Shore Reaper are constructed using quality Fuji guides and do not require extra maintenance. It is however important to thoroughly flush down all the guides and the reel seat with fresh water after use to prevent corrosion.
The high density pvc bag that is provided will adequately shield your rod from scratches and harmful UV rays.
