The TX-9 carp rod range represents the very latest in carbon fibre manufacturing processes using a blend of HPC300 plus Biofibre carbon with Nano Alloy technology. A 3K strengthening weave is incorporated two thirds of the way up the blank, this is done so no additional weight is added to the tip, which delivers one of the slimmest, most responsive blanks ever made. Fitted with light yet highly robust Fuji SIC K-Type guides that are cosmetically matched to the rod in gun metal grey, the low stand off 40mm butt ring looks understated, but is specifically designed to aid distance and the use of Fuji K-Type frames mean that frap-ups when casting PVA bags are a thing of the past.
The traditionally styled, slim full EVA handle is designed at an optimum length that delivers the best conversion of power to compress the blank on the cast. The TX-9 rods are also adorned with the Shimano 3K woven carbon custom reel seat with a dedicated milled slot which will accept a small beta light. Actions have all been individually developed to suit the test curve of the rod and there are both 12ft and 13ft Intensity models for extreme distance casting, with recorded casts to 215 yds already in tests.
