Shimano Egi System

IF you’re looking to get serious about catching squid, Shimano has the system for you.

Shimano says its Egi System will not only catch you more squid but will make your squid fishing even more enjoyable. The Shimano Egi system can be broken down into three integral components.

Jig: The revolutionary Sephia Egixile jig is the first key component to this system. Shimano developed 3 colour schemes to cover different environments: “natural” for general presentations, “shrimp/ prawn” when squid require a more realistic presentation, and “Keimura” in deeper water or lower light conditions.

The intuitive “Keimura” cloth is activated by UV light. UV light travels further in the water column than sunlight to give your jig more presence and glow where sunlight cannot reach.

The jigs are available in 3 sizes (2.5, 3.0 & 3.5) with varied sink rates. Sephia Egixile jigs can also be easily stored in two models of simple, non-tangle and see-through (for quick, easy identification) Egi cases. The cases come in small and medium sizes to fit all size jigs.

Rod: The second key component is the Sephia range of specialised Egi rods. Featuring four models made specifically to fish all sizes of the Egi jig range, the rods are rated for use with 3 to 6kg line and come in lengths from 2.08 metres to a perfect land-based length of 2.51 metres. The rods are built on a high-modulus graphite blank, feature extra-hard EVA split butt assembly, Egi “keeper”, Sea Guide components and attractive aluminium winding checks.

Reel: The third key component is the Stradic CI4 1000F ML. The “ML” stands for “Micro Line”, meaning that this reel features a shallow spool ideal for Egi fishing. The body is made from proprietary Shimano CI4 technology which will deliver one of the lightest combos available once paired with a Sephia Egi rod. The reels weighs in at a diminutive 165 grams, has a retrieve of 6.0:1 (74 cm per handle crank) and has no less than 7 Shimano bearings.
