The XT15-2 is a strong pole for bagging and a great all-rounder yet it retains enough finesse for silverfish work when required. In fact the new spares package includes a new F1 top kit that has been specially developed for F1's and silvers. You get all the features of the top-end Nano-Core models in a package that is 22 elastic strong. It is built using new Nano-Core carbon formed into a CS-3 macromolecular structure with three covalent bonds for extreme strength and rigidity and weighs just 720g at 11.5m. The carbon undergoes a unique VC-X curing process under extreme pressure to force out any tiny air imperfections for a more consistent action and further increases the strength in each section. The pole features new C-Fuse aligner system sections and kits meaning they are interchangeable across the Nano-Core range new DNS distance numbering system on butts for totally precise fishing if you opt for the 13.5m package and CKB colour keyed bush-fit bands showing exactly where to cut back to fit Middy PTFE bushes. The graphite used in this pole can withstand temperatures of 3800 Kelvin (equivalent to 3502 degrees centigrade) and it is this unique HKD process that provides immense and consistent stability when the pole is subjected to extreme summer temperatures. Also new with the Nano-Core poles is a range of Safe-Zone mini reversible butts which feature soft EVA domed ends to protect the pole from elbows and when shipping back. The pole has a Match3 G-16 kit fitted while the packages includes a F1 G-16 kit and a Karp2 G-22 kit (both of which are supplied ready tubed). You also get a Safe-Zone Karp reversible 11.5/13m mini-butt free Hi-Viz elastication kits and an Xtreme pole holdall. Another great feature of the Nano-Core poles range is that every single elastic kit is pull-it reinforced ready for fitting a side pull-it bush. The sections in this pole are micro-ground to create a low friction S-Slide surface making shipping back faster and almost effortless. The balance ratio is 23.4 Newtons at 11.5m with a Pro 2-kit fitted; while other pole makers only provide a weight it is actually this balance ratio that gives you a true guide to the feel of the pole. The XT15-2 pole is available in 11.5m and 13.5m packages. Anyone with an original XT15 need not worry about section and kits compatibility because all of the XT15-2 sections and kits will fit the original XT15 and vice-versa.
