Today, there is an increasing tendency in the market to cast with braided line, to make very long casts and to have more and more sensitivity in the touch. Normally we would have to splash out and buy two rods, one with a solid tip for fishing with nylon and another with a tubular tip for braided line.
We wanted to save you some money so we have come up with the solution to have rods with a Double Tips System.
Here are our 6 stars with the Double Tips System:
- Zeroseven Superior 4.30mt e 4.50mt (100-250gr)
- Zeroseven F1 4.30mt e 4.50mt (100-250gr)
- Superba NX 4.20mt e 4.50mt (100-250gr)
- Imperial Pro 4.20mt e 4.50mt (100-250gr)
- Gardian 4.20mt (80-200gr) e 4.20mt (100-250gr)
- Etan X3 4.20mt (80-200gr) e 4.20mt (100-250gr)
- Carbon solid tips.
- Perfectly suited for fishing with Nylon.
- Maximum sensitivity and great casting power.
- Designed for braided line due to its almost zero stretch.
When should we use braided line?
- When we want to gain metres in the cast whenever the prey is at considerable distances. For sure, you could reduce the diameter of the nylon, but that would mean a drastic reduction of the line breaking strength. However, with the braided line, we can go down to diameters close to 0.060mm and still have high breaking strengths.
- Or when we want to have a lot more sensitivity on the line, as opposed to nylon which, being elastic, pretty much acts as shock absorber and sometimes affects the reaction of the line.
- In addition, when we are faced with a sustained current, and it is also necessary to cast leads over 200gr, perhaps combined with wedges of sizeable bait, in this case the tubular tip can provide us with greater reliability.
- In both the first and second case, if we used the Sensitive Tip with braided line, which has no stretch, we would have many vibrations on the tip, with the risk of creating those braids on the head and on the end eye that would make us lose lead, fishing line and everything else. So, all this can be avoided by using the tubular tip to have a stiffer head and, therefore, fewer vibrations.
- In the third case, when we talk about strong currents, if we used the solid tip, therefore very sensitive, we would find ourselves with the tip always bent in tension. Whereas with the tubular tip it is actually the best option when faced with typical sea conditions with currents that are even stronger than swollen rivers.
