Light, responsive and perfectly finished
The Biocraft XR is a remarkable combination of carbon technology and angling knowledge. Pick one up and you’ll immediately understand the relationship. Light, responsive, perfectly finished, the Biocraft XR punches well above its price point and is a serious challenger to some of the ultra high priced American competitors. With 25 models in the range, there is something for everyone, from wand-like finesse actions through to saltwater powerhouses for the intrepid angler. Each one is an exquisite work of art, immediately becoming an extension of your arm by the water.
Astounding combination of exclusive Shimano carbon technology
At the heart of each Biocraft XR is an astounding combination of exclusive Shimano carbon technology, blended to achieve the perfect action for the rods application. The high modulus blanks feature HPC, Biofibre, Nanosheet and Diaflash in different blends. This combination results in lightness and finesse where it is required in the stream and lightweight models and controlling power and peerless casting performance in the powerful and double handed models. As an added advantage almost all of the models are 3 or 4 piece construction for reduced transport length.
Biocraft XR - Born To Fly!
As you would expect from a premium rod, fittings are of the highest order and have been selected for their performance characteristics. Seaguide and Fuji SIC guides ensure lightness combined with strength, Seaguide reel seats blend perfectly with the traditional cork handles and every rod comes with a velvet bag and a hardcase carry tube.
Of course to fully appreciate the Biocraft XR you’ll have to get your hands on one and give it a test. Then, and only then, will you fully appreciate the stunning performance delivered by a rod that in some cases costs half the price of its competitors.
