REINFORCED CONSTRUCTION MAKES THE ROD TOUGHER
AND ENSURES IT BENDS MORE ACCURATELY
In Hi-Power X construction, the blank’s outermost layer
is diagonally wrapped with carbon tape, which forms an
array of “X” shapes. The width of the tape, its winding
angle and the part of the rod being wrapped are fine-
tuned according to the target fish species. This tuning
flexibility allows Shimano to adjust these wraps during construction for precise actions, enhanced overall strength
and added twist resistance.
In short, Hi-Power X construction allows sharp and crisp
rod control by the angler.
