The Alivio DX Spinning with its progressive XT-30 blank is faster and slimmer than ever. The rod is equipped with shimano hard lite guides which can be used with both mono and braided line. The rod is nicely finished with cork grips and strong cosmetics matching the Alivio reel. This wide range of rods can meet virtually all personal and local preferences.
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.
