Shimano Lumanis S96M

BASS

A step above the Dialuna, this Lumanis 96M model will be the most popular from the range. Rated to 35g for plugs and plastics, Shimano are happy that they actually have the power to handle a 45g metal. As a result of this, copnsider it a 45g rated rod when comparing with others.

What I've seen of this range has so far been amazing. A step above the Dialuna, this 96 model will be the most popular from the range. Rated to 35g for plugs and plastics, Shimano are happy that they actually have the power to handle a 45g metal. It's actually a sensible way of ratings things, as a 45g plug would obviously have a lot of drag in both air and water, while a 45g metal will be far more aero and aqua dynamic.

How will they compare to others around the price point? Stiffer in the tip and slightly more powerful than an Eginn 96. More responsive and crisper than a Dialuna. Less glassy (can be good or bad) and lighter on paper than a Grandage.

Well worth considering if you're after a new stick for rocky marks, bigger lures, windy days or surf conditions.
