The new Speedmaster BX Surf come in both tubular- and solid tip models. The rods are very powerful with high performing blanks made of XT200 carbon which produces a superb casting action combined with an excellent sensitive bite registration. The rods are designed to be well balanced and lightweight when hold in the hand. The rods are finished with Fuji- guides, Fuji reel seats, and cast control grips to make sure you can utilize enough casting power to throw your bait where the fish is.
XT Carbon is used throughout the Shimano rod range. The number following the XT (XT100), denotes the quality of carbon fibre used. The higher the number, the stronger the carbon. Where different types of carbon are combined to create the required action both numbers will be shown (XT60/40).
Cast Control Grip
Round shaped butt end with anti slip to ensure perfect grip during heavy duty casting.

Review by Dave Mead
not used the rod yet but very light in the hand and seems very well made. the tip section looks thin which is abit of a worry for me, it looks more like a course rod tip than a sea. it states it will cast up to 225g but i would be worried if i put a 5oz weight on it to be honest.. the impression i get this rod could be ideal for summer fishing for plaice or mackerel with a 4oz weight, would it be able to handle codling or a smoothhound with a 5-6oz lead on ? i will update once i have used it.
