Details

The Tribal TX-Ultra is the flagship rod in the Tribal family. Developed to be the best carp rod in the market. Thanks to the Spiral X and Hi-Power X constructions within the blanks, the rods are not only capable of chucking big distances (234 yards biggest recorded so far) they are unbelievably accurate. The ultimate tool for fishing at distance over baited spots or to holes in the weed, where accuracy is a must, this technology has not been seen in carp rods before. The slim, lightweight blanks are not just casting machines, in fact 15 samples were created in the process to ensure they are the ultimate carp fishing tool. The rod has an futuristic look and feel thanks to the split EVA grip design.

Spiral X
Spiral X construction consists of three layers: a blank made of vertical fibers, an inner layer, and an outer layer both comprised of carbon tape that tightly winds the blank diagonally in opposite directions. By using this carbon tape in place of a conventional horizontal fiber sheet, Spiral X achieves enhanced torsional rigidity without adding extra weight. This in turn facilitates instant power transmission for precise casting and fighting fish. Through its exclusive lightweight structure, Shimano's Spiral X construction enhances anglers' "catching power."

Hipower X
In Hi-Power X construction, the blank's outermost layer is diagonally wrapped with carbon tape, which forms an array of "X" shapes. The width of the tape, its winding angle and the part of the rod being wrapped are fine-tuned according to the target fish species. The flexibility allows Shimano to adjust these wraps during construction for precise actions, enhanced overall strength and added twist resistance. In short, Hi-Power X construction delivers sharp and crisp rod control by the angler.
    
CI4+ Reel seat
Shimano uses a wide range of reel seats to choose the best one for each rod. For example the Ci4 or Ci4+ reelseats. Ci4 is 20% lighter and 1.6 times stronger than other conventional polymers. The Ci4+ is an improved version of the Ci4 and even more durable. Through this exclusive material, Shimano creates ultra-light reelseats which increase the sensitivity of the rod.

KIGAN guides
KIGAN 3D Guide is an advanced processing method of guide frame and through 3 dimension press process, it has been designed to innovatively strengthen the combination with ceramic ring in a light and stronger manner.
