"Leave well-enough alone" may be a chapter in the playbook for some rod designers, but you won't find it in Tim's. He's constantly cooking up ways to capitalize on the latest materials and manufacturing technologies.
We transplanted the soul of the existing Carbon series into one of the most killer designs we've ever pushed out the door. Aesthetically impressive, the Carbon XL (XL = "Xtra Love") sports a Gloss Hazelnut finish, with a matching gloss carbon fiber reel seat insert. Brushed aluminum hardware completes the look - which as a whole - could be mistaken for a rod well outside its price range.With more "zip in the tip" and increased power in the bottom half of the rod, the Carbon XL features enhanced performance capabilities that can be applied over a wider range of tactics and techniques. With a crisp medium-fast action, and a near 20% reduction in overall weight over the previous Carbon family, the Carbon XL is a pleasure to cast, daylight to dusk. Oh, we make it easier on your wallet, too! A true all-around performer with the features and feel associated with rods four times the cost. Tim designed these rods to be airy-light with actions that benefit a wide range of casting styles and fishing situations. Bass to browns, bluegill to brookies, the Carbon XL covers it all. Tube: Fabric-covered rod case & sock. Guides: Lightweight ceramic stripping guides. Grips: Features two grip styles. International Buyers - Please Note. Doing that is against U.
