The perfect "allrounder" for anglers who mainly fish at 13m or less, but still easy to use at 14.5m, especially with our amazing square protector section fitted! The 2eX-S 40#1 provides levels of performance and quality never offered before at this price level. It has most of the same advanced features found on our most expensive poles ? this really is a "top-end" pole at a "mid-range" price. Built alongside and to the same high quality standards as our top-end Xitan poles. Visibly reinforced at all section stress points and with thickened joints to resist wear, guaranteeing both strength and long life. 2eX-S poles are "ready to fish" with pre-bushed topkits, so no cutting back and lost length - just add elastic and go fishing! Elastic rating 16+. Supplied with our revolutionary Square Pole Protector section for easy and comfortable fishing at long lengths - no more "elbow pain" !
