Shimano 3 Piece Surf Leader Ultra BX Surf Rod. The Surf Leader Ultra is the new flagship surf rod. Because of the Spiral X & Hi-Power X blank technology, this rod is the ultimate surf rod with unbelievable distance casting abilities. The Spiral X construction results in reduced torsion and ovalisation while the Hi-Power X construction results in reduced blank twist and greater rod strength. Overall this creates a very strong, stiff and lightweight rod blank with incredible casting performance (both distance and accuracy). The Surf Leader Ultra is available in 425 and 450 cm length with either a tubular tip or a solid tip.

Spiral X construction consists of three layers: a blank made of vertical fibers, an inner layer, and an outer layer both comprised of carbon tape that tightly winds the blank diagonally in opposite directions. By using this carbon tape in place of a conventional horizontal fiber sheet, Spiral X achieves enhanced torsional rigidity without adding extra weight. This in turn facilitates instant power transmission for precise casting and fighting fish. Through its exclusive lightweight structure, Shimano’s Spiral X construction enhances anglers’ “catching power.”
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.
Fuji Reel Seat
Built to last, Fuji reel seats are designed with graphite nylon bodies, exclusive S-4 stainless steel hoods, with lined cushioned inserts to offer a lightweight reel seat with superior strength. Uniform design for increased comfort, and with self aligned hoods that provide a solid lockdown on your reel foot which will never back off while fishing.
Silicon Carbide or SiC is one of the most advanced ceramics available today. It’s the hardest and most durable in Fuji’s lineup and because of this, SiC Guides are particularly well suited for braided line.
