Shimano Rods

For those who are interested (I know I was), Shimano now have information on their Jigwrex range and Ocea Blue Rose rods on their Australian site.

Yeah they did the same for the PE6, they've put kilos instead of pounds lol.

I thought it would be more around $550, which is based on 48000 Japanese yen for the PE10 (most expensive model) on http://www.plat.co.jp/english/shimano/salt_rod/blue_rose/blue_rose.htm. Aussie ones could be priced differently though, as it's obvious we have a much smaller range of Blue Rose.
