This combo combines the Shimano Tallus kite rod with the Forcemaster 9000A. These are designed by Shimano to pair with each other for maximum effectiveness. Shimano built the new Forcemaster 9000 to be versatile and to meet the needs of anglers flying kites for Sailfish, Bluefin Tuna and other pelagics. Capable of up to 55 pounds of drag to provide the power needed under immense loads, the Forcemaster 9000 incorporates Shimano’s Heat Free System II to reduce the reel’s internal temperature when fighting big fish, allowing anglers to focus on what matters most — not exhausting themselves winching on a reel.
