Swedish fishing tackle manufacturer, Guideline, has discontinued production of its iconic LPXe after more than 13 years – and replaced it with the LPXe!
The company says that the classic LPXe Series is part of its soul and DNA. “We simply could not part with the name,” it explains. “An emotional and challenging three-year development process has now come to an end as we present this new flagship series in the range.”
The rods are said to be crisp, light, fast, well balanced and carry a stealthy finish. “By incorporating new graphite structures and cutting patterns, we have improved the strength of the rods and the recovery speeds in the blanks are better than ever,” adds Guideline.
“Continuing on the guide design features of the RSi, we have fitted Fuji KW stripping guides also. The reduction in tangles with these unique frames is amazing and the fact that the KW offers the coolest look in fly guides today is an added bonus.”
All rods feature single leg guides throughout to minimise weight and unnecessary stiffening of the blank to add to its performance. Lightweight, yet strong reel seats with customised detail throughout match the classic semi-matte, slightly transparent blanks perfectly.
Grip lengths, shapes and diameters are also new. The Switch rods are fitted with an improved version of Guideline’s unique extendable rear grip.
The LPXe comes in an Air-Mesh rod bag and strong, light tube.
Seven single-hand, three Switch and five double-handed models make up a range of 15 four-piece rods.
