Spiral X

Exclusive construction overcomes blank twist and enhances rod performance

Spiral X construction consists of three layers: a blank made of vertical fibers, an inner layer, and an outer layer both comprised of carbon tape that tightly winds the blank diagonally in opposite directions.  By using this carbon tape in place of a conventional horizontal fiber sheet, Spiral X achieves enhanced torsional rigidity without adding extra weight.  This in turn facilitates instant power transmission for precise casting and fighting fish.  Through its exclusive lightweight structure, Shimano’s Spiral X construction enhances anglers’ “catching power.”
