Savage Gear upgrades XLNT rod series

Article Media Click images to enlarge +

Savage Gear has upgraded its range of XLNT rods to make them lighter and cast better.
↑ The XLNT rods are built on high modulus carbon fibre blanks and furnished with top quality components.
↑ Each XLNT blank is purpose-designed for modern-day predator fishing.

Savage Gear has established itself one of the leading brands in predator fishing – and it is products like the XLNT rod series that have helped build that reputation.

Built on high modulus carbon fibre blanks and furnished with top quality components and a moderate price tag, this comprehensive predator collection has already proved very popular.

Now Savage Gear has upgraded the rods with its Coil Control (CC) guides to provide even better performance by reducing weight and improving casting distances.

The range of four models – the Dropshot, Bushwacker, Butch Light and Roadrunner – is a mix of softer rods and specialist models. Spinning, vertical fishing and drop-shotting are all catered for, with each blank purpose designed for modern-day predator techniques.

The rods are all two section and come with Fuji Gold Label reel seats and cork/EVA handles and come with practical, ready-to-fish rod bags so the rod can be pre-rigged before arriving at the water.

“The XLNT rods are over-powered, so you will often find you can handle bigger lures than is stated on the blanks, “ says Mads Grosell, Head of Product Development for Savage Gear’s parent company, Svendsen Sport. “With the XLNT series you really get a lot of value for your money.”

The seven-strong series comprises the 7’ 6” 7-25g Dropshot, the 9’ 7-25g Dropshot, the 6’ 10-30g Vertical, the 6’ 9″10-30g Butch Light, the 6’ 9” 15-60g Butch Light, the 6’ 9” 40-100g Butch Light and the 8’ 6” 30-80g Butch Light.
