The new range is made with HPC (high-pressure carbon), making it up to 40% stronger and more responsive. The grip has been changed from cork to a very ergonomic EVA grip but has retained top features such as the Fossil Wood reel seat and Fuji guides. These unique rods are produced with an oval cross-section. This special construction gives the rods a stiff side and a soft side. When you cast, the rod is fast and delivers outstanding precision and distance. When you hook a big fish simply turn the rod on its side and the action magically changes from fast into parabolic playing action to ensure you land the largest of fish.
