Shimano Tribal TX9 Intensity 13' 3.75lb Rod
The 13' Intensity model of the Shimano Tribal TX9 for extreme distance casting.
the TX-9 carp rod range represents the very latest in carbon fibre manufacturing
processes, using a blend of HPC300 and Biofibre carbon with Nano Alloy technology.
This delivers one of the slimmest, most powerful blanks ever made which improves
casting performance, without affecting the playing action through the tip and middle
section, required for maintaining a secure hook hold.
Fitted with light yet highly robust Fuji SIC K-Type guides that are cosmetically matched
to the rod in gun metal grey, the stand off 40mm butt ring looks understated, but is
equal in performance to more bulky 50mm traditional type butt rings.
The slim full EVA handle is designed with an optimum length to deliver the best casting
action in each length category. The TX-9 rods are also fitted with the Shimano 3K woven
carbon custom reel seat with a dedicated milled slot which will accept a small 'beta light'.
This cool satin cross hatch carbon effect continues up the low diameter butt section
and well into the tip section.
