Designed to cater for all fishing disciplines from freshwater spinning through to surf and boat rods, Kilwell XP rods feature powerful but responsive composite construction blanks incorporating the unique
Powerweave manufacturing process.
The eye-catching cosmetics, top quality componentry, and taper rates and actions designed by fishermen, ensure XP rods will continue the Kilwell tradition of providing products with value and on-the-water performance.
Like all Kilwell branded products these rods have a Kilwell Lifetime Warranty.
The Kilwell Xantu 7' (2.1m) 2 piece Softbait/Slowpitch Rod features a low diameter, lightweight blank,
designed and manufactured in New Zealand. The blank is built from the latest Electrospun Nano fibre plus nano particle resins giving the rod a dramatic increase in flexural lifting power without increasing weight to the rod.
This rod is hand assembled in Rotorua using:
This rod has a great action and is rated for 8 to 10kg mono, or braid rated PE1.5 to PE2. Also suitable for Salmon and Canal Trout. For spinning and bait fishing where you need a spin rod with a bit of grunt!
All Kilwell products, including Xantu rods, now have a Kilwell Lifetime Warranty against faulty materials and workmanship, so we guarantee this gear wont let you down.
ABOUT XANTU.LAYER CONSTRUCTION
In a world first, Kilwell have combined nano particle resin with Xantu.Layer electrospun nanofibre in a fishing rod blank. Nanofibres are defined as fibres with diameters less than 1000 nanometers. Xantu.Layer is a polymer hybrid of continuous nanofibres forming a non-woven web. This layer bonds with nano resin and carbon fibre to create a rod blank featuring a dramatic increase in flexural lifting power, without increasing weight.
