My new Torium 20 HG will not fit on my Calstar 10' jig stick. The bolt centers are too narrow to fit around the cork rod butt. Is there an adapter available or should I reduce the OD of the rod butt? bosco

tiburon universal clamp. I think it is the large size.

I just bought the new torium 20,
The spread on the bolts barely fit on my
Calstar GG90j MAG and were way to short.

And easy fix with a bench grinder and a run to home-depot.

But pretty lame since shimano is pushing the torium as a jigging reel, and it won't fit on 90% of jigs sticks.

It will fit almost all jig sticks but the 10+ foot rods. We offer the accessory clamp for the Trinidad that also works on the Torium for these situations.

Too many of them
I ran into the same problem with this reel not fitting my Super Seeker 6490 9'. I just called Shimano and they said there is no other clamp for this reel. They said I can buy just 2 longer lug screws though for $30.

No thanks, lol
