Built with some of the most sophisticated blank manufacturing processes in the industry, the Shimano SkixX Muskie Rods easily solidify themselves as the most advanced musky rods on the market. Featuring Shimano's proprietary Spiral-X and Hi-Power X construction, the SkixX achieves the optimum balance between lightweight, strength, and control. Spiral X construction consists of multiple layers comprised of carbon tape that tightly winds the blank diagonally in opposite directions, resulting in enhanced torsional rigidity without adding extra weight. This construction results in an extremely responsive rod that allows for instant power transmission while casting heavy musky lures and greatly enhances control when a massive fish is on the end of the your line. Spiral-X blanks are 250% more structurally rigid and 180% less prone to twisting than standard blank construction, giving you the ultimate advantage when these elusive giants choose to show themselves. To allow for ease of transport and storage, two-piece models feature rigid butt-joint construction where the rod section fits directly into the handle section at the top of the foregrip, offering a true, uninterrupted rod action and strength that rivals that of a single piece rod. All models are equipped with premium grade cork handles and Fuji Alconite guides.
