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.  The 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 delivers sharp and crisp rod control by the angler.
