Hailed by many as the best feeder rods ever. So when
our team improved the SLR blank with a hi tech cocktail of the new
torque busting X45X Full Shield and HVF nanoplus, it is fair to say we
began to get a bit excited at the result.
With prototypes tested and fined tuned, the outcome
has been nothing short of exceptional. Each model now harnesses even
more casting energy and is able to deliver those big pay loads, more
accurately at distance.
The development team also extended the range by
creating an amazing 3pc 12’ model. With next to no weight difference to
the 2pc equivalent and that smooth curvature from V-Joint Alpha, this is
certain to be much sought after option.
X45X Full Shield is the next generation of Bias Carbon
Technology. The innovative composition of 45° bi directional fibre can
now be applied further into the rod structure but maintain that amazing
action. Blended with the higher carbon density of HVF nanoplus, the gain
is greater torque resistance and higher casting energy conversion.
As for feel they have been enhanced by application of
the weight saving SeaGuide TDG rings. These not only lighten the down
force but also sharpen up the rod recovery. Rapidly reduced rod
oscillation adds distance to casts.
We haven’t held back on the handle either. The Fuji
VSS reel seat offers a neatly blended fit to the Duplon grip with a
laser etched Tournament logo in place. And the original cork Armlock
continues to provide added handling stability.
Refinement has also reached to the quiver tips with a
new SLR series. Guide positions have been adjusted with an additional
guide applied nearer the tip. There are also two further versions
available; a 2.5oz and 4oz edition.
