SHIMANO C14+ REEL SEAT
In addition to using high-end Fuji reel seats, Shimano has designed several models in-house. These Shimano engineered models make it possible to use specialized reel seats for different types of rods. The usage of the highly technical material C14+ creates an ultra-light reel seat.
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.
SPIRAL X CORE
A high-quality carbon tape is glued into the rod core with a high-strength resin which
results in increased strength in all directions. Compared to rods without Spiral Core X, the
blank is 2.5 times stronger and the strength.
