The Alivio DX TE5 is our entry level telescopic rod built using XT30 carbon + Geofibre. Featuring Shimano Hardlite guides these rods are ideally suited for beginners on a budget who still want the reassurance of the Shimano brand. Casting weights are 4 to 20g for all models.
XT Carbon is used throughout the Shimano rod range. The number following the XT (XT100), denotes the quality of carbon fibre used. The higher the number, the stronger the carbon. Where different types of carbon are combined to create the required action both numbers will be shown (XT60/40).
Shimano Stainless Steel Hardlite Guides
Combining lightweight yet robust anodised steel frames with Aluminium Oxide liners, Shimano's Hardlite (SiH) guides offer the ideal balance of strength and performance without compromise.
