Zziplex Zeteque TXL GT
The Zeteque TXL GT is one of the stiffest rod in the Zziplex range.
It has a very powerful and stiff lower and mid sections but these are perfectly blended to a more forgiving tip section and a softer glass tip for bite registration. Ideal for anglers wanting to fish over rough ground for big fish where the TXL has the power to pull fish and tackle back through kelp and rock but maintains the tip sensitivity to help you spot bites as they develop.
The TXL has the capacity to cast very long distances when used with a proficient pendulum style but it can also be cast in a more confined area by upping the sinker to a 7oz or 8oz and this will help load the rod with a more stunted casting style.
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.
