Zziplex Bullet GT
The Bullet is a staple in the Zziplex range and the GT model has been tweaked to take advantage of advancements in carbon technology to give even more performance than before.
The Bullet GT is a classic stiff butt fast tip pendulum style rod which has field casting capabilities but still makes a superb long range fishing rod. The glass tip offers good bite detection and blends nicely into the powerful mid and butt sections which give you the necessary casting power to reach the fish. It makes a nice all round rod which can be used from all but the roughest of rock marks.
Zziplex blanks are hand crafted in the UK using the best material available. Their skills and knowledge of working with different types of carbon and glass cloth allow them to produce rods which give the angler the ultimate in casting and fishing performance. Each model is designed to perform perfectly and help to enhance your angling enjoyment.
The Blank only option is for the bare rod blank only although it is supplied pre fitted with Zziplex shrink tube.
Zziplex Fully built at VMO
Our fully built Zziplex rods are professionally finished to a very high standard by Ian McLean of Somerset Custom Rods. The guides are Fuji CCKWAG and they are whipped in black with metallic red and silver tipings. The Butt guide and first intermediate on the tip are also under whipped in metallic blue with silver centre banding. The Butt guide has additional faded red banding to give it a classy and distinctive look. There are additional whipping on either side of the spigot.
All whippings are double coated with high quality epoxy to give a smooth and strong finish. The Zziplex logo is also coated with epoxy for added gloss and protection
The handle is covered with Zziplex shrink tube and is fitted with an adjustable reel seat and butt cap.
The tip is deliberately left bare but a pack of reflective tape is included to allow you to fit tip tape to the style which you prefer.
The rod is built to multiplier specification with 8 x guides plus matching tip.
