  • 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.

    Forged from cutting-edge technology and legendary design. Developed and hand-finished in Woodland, Washington and rolled in the world's only Spiral X production facility in Kumamoto, Japan. Introducing Asquith: the most technologically advanced fly rod in the world. Shimano's proprietary Spiral-X technology utilizes a core layer, a longitudinal middle layer, and a reverse-axis fiber outer layer. This unique construction increases rigidity without increasing weight, reduces ovalization, and provides virtually instantaneous power transmission when casting or fighting a fish.
