Shimano 2 Piece Tribal TX-Ultra A Carp Rod - 12ft - 3lb. The new Tribal TX Ultra certainly lives up to its 'grip it and rip it' billing. Unparalleled casting performance is created by the combination of three exclusive SHIMANO carbon technologies: Spiral X Core for torsional rigidity, Hi-Power X for blank twist reduction and a futuristic Carbon Monocoque handle for faster power transfer and improved feel when fish-playing. These technologies also reduce the overall weight of the rod, making it the lightest carp rod in the TX range which results in increase tip speed when used with maximum casting force. Casts in excess of 220 yards have been achieved using the 13' INT model with a 4.5oz (128g) lead. Not only is the TX Ultra longer casting, it is also unnervingly accurate and remarkably forgiving when playing fish, especially in the 3.0lb and 3.25lb test curves. Combine the TX Ultra with any Shimano Slow or Super Slow Oscillation Big Pit and you have a world class carp combination that will be the envy of everyone.

The 'Intensity' model is designed for extreme casting distances.

Spiral X
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.”

Hi-Power X
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.

Full Carbon Monocoque
100% carbon hollow shaped reargrip with one piece blank through for an amplified sensitivity.

CI4+ Perfection Reel Seat XT
Improved ergonomic and lightweight Ci4+ reel seat for the best comfort and grip during fishing action.
