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.
