Think about bending a straw––as it bends, the circle shape of the tube first becomes an oval and then folds over. This is basically what happens to a fishing rod when it bends. Spiral X technology decreases "ovalization" by wrapping two layers of carbon tape at 45 degree angles throughout the rod blank. Spiral X increases torsional rigidity which channels the focused energy for less rod wobble. By decreasing rod wobble and channeling energy more efficiently you end up with a rod that has more accuracy, better hook-sets and more power—see the video!
