By eliminating twist and preventing the blank from losing its round form, 45 degree X Technology and Bias Wrap allows a lighter a small diameter blank to be made, and lighter more dynamic rod to be created. 3D Winding continues the advanced blank design with its three dimensional woven process adding support to the lower power section of the rod. By knitting densely packed carbon fibres in 3 directions to create a six wrap rectangular weave, the power is distributed evenly in all directions, allowing the blank to maintain its form when loaded. This process increases the power and eliminates blank twist and collapse, and allows the rod’s power to be located at the lower section of the blank for maximum power and a reduction in angler fatigue.
