Product Description


Shimano Tribal XS1 Rod,

The Shimano Tribal XS1 contains some of the highest carbon content of any commercially made Shimano rod. The rod blank is constructed from HPC200 carbon – HPC here refers to a high pressure application during the carbon curing process which ensures an even distribute of resin through the carbon fibre matrix to create a blank that is up to 40% stronger than a blank created without this curing method.

The Shimano Tribal XS1 is available in both standard and Intensity versions. Intensity is an out and out casting rod with a purpose designed action to enable you to reach the furthest point of your cast. Shimano worked with some of the best distance casters in the world to create this rod until they were completely satisfied with their casting distances. Able to attack those previously unreachable waters, you’ll be amazed at the huge carp that are lurking slyly out of your standard reach. Intensity technology is features on the 12ft and 13ft 3.75lb rods in this range.

All the rods are fitted with 50mm butt guides and taper to 16mm tip. This oversized tip ensures against crack-offs and weed tangles. Shimano has added triple legs to the butt guides, to give increased strength, but have remained with double legs on the tip guides, to ensure 100% responsiveness remains.

The reel seat is constructed from 3k carbon weave with stainless collars that really keep your reel in place. This 3k weave runs right up the rod to the 2nd eye, giving this rod incredible strength. As with all the rods in Shimano’s Tribal carp fishing rod range, the XS1 offers complete compatibility with all of Shimano’s carp reels – enabling you to mix and match unconventional rods and reels and allowing you to use big pit reels on shorter test curve rods. The rod isn’t fitted with a line clip, allowing you to place your own line clip (available for purchase separately) in your preferred location.

With unique technology that allows the rod to completely recover after a cast, providing incredible casting distance, accuracy, and maintaining a perfect curve when playing a fish, the Shimano XS1 is a rod to get excited about.
