EFTTEX Awards 2013 - Best New Rod

Sportex ONE

‘Exquisite high-end rod for the ardent carp angler’, says Sportex.

“Leading the way in terms of quality, performance and aesthetics, the ONE is powered by a Sportex Helicore®Blank, FUJI K guides, an adjustable FUJI double hood reel seat, including Sportex Safety-Lock System, and an elegant design,” adds the German manufacturer.

“The Sportex Helicore Blank represents the finest in contemporary rod building and provides up to 20% more casting energy than any other rod. Our proprietary cross-winding gives an action that is unrivalled and the 3M™ Powerlux™ drives targeted power and performance. All this is encompassed in the ultimate ONE blank.

“The FUJI double-hood reel seat and Sportex Safety-Lock System allows adjustment of the reel’s position on the blank and safety secures it for the best possible handling. The unique design of the black-framed FUJI K guides allows tangles to unwind and delivers extraordinary casting performance.

“The 3M™ Powerlux™ composites feature a revolutionary technology that contains nano-sized spheres of silica so small that they are able to flow between individual filaments of carbon fibre, creating a matrix of strength throughout the entire composite.

“The resulting material enables designers to develop rods that are not only incredibly strong and durable, but light and more sensitive.
