I love that Sakura have bought the Shukan name back to their range. My first proper lure rod was one of the original Shukans and I loved it! They're as good today as they ever were - reliable, robust lure rods that combine quality with a no-stress fishing style. As in, they're not like ultra light Japanese rods, but they do give us an option for any angler who wants quality rods but with more power!
Ben's an idiot so hasn't added a full category run-down yet. We're sure he'll get on it shortly.
