Rovex has released a new carbon graphite fishing rod built with a new resin, that’s claimed to make the rods 50 per cent stronger than normal carbon graphite rods.
The new XRC-48 resin recipe is the result of a scientific breakthrough at a specialist resin laboratory. Resin boffins discovered a new formula allowing molecules to move in synchronisation when a rod bends, instead of pushing against each other, as they do in standard resins. This means rods using XRC-48 work less to lift more weight, making them less fragile and increasing the life of each rod.
Rovex has taken this technology and matched it to new high-grade high-modulus graphite sheets to create nine exceptionally strong, yet light, one-piece rods. There are 9kg, 15kg and 24kg-class overhead rods for targeting big fish on both inshore and offshore grounds. The 7kg, 9kg and 15kg class spin rods suit jigging, casting poppers or bait fishing. The 7kg, 9kg and 15kg baitcaster rods are designed for casting or trolling lures in lakes, rivers and estuaries. All Rovex Carbon-Tec rods are fitted with heavy-duty Fuji reel seats and silicon insert guides.
