    Shimano Zodias bass rods

    Shimano has expanded its Zodias (ZDS) bass rod line-up with three new models that are constructed for specific lure and situation use and feature Shimano’s unique CI4+ reel seat.

    Star Tron

    Star Tron

    The EPA is actively working to increase the amount of ethanol in fuel to 15%. If you have an engine that can be safely used with E15 fuel, Star Tron Enzyme Fuel Treatment will ensure that it burns even cleaner while restoring lost power. Star Tron is a multifunctional product that does more than “just stabilize;” it improves combustibility while also treating debris and moisture in fuel. Its alcohol-free formula also helps prevent corrosion. Star Tron works in all fuel, including E5, E10, E15 and Rec 90 ethanol-free gas.
