MIDDY 8.5m XS5 NANO POLE + EXTRA G25 KIT
Designed for speed work on silvers, the XS5-2 pole is slim, just 8 metres long and fitted with a Tele3 Flick-Tip. You get an additional Karp2 G-25 kit with pull-it facility; this fits the 4th section, allowing you to transform the pole into a short margin beast. It is a two-in-one wonder tool with dual action capabilities. You also get a Safe-Zone Karp reversible mini-butt, making it an overall 8.5m package. At its full length, the XS5-2 pole fits the 6th section of other Nano-Core poles. It is built using new Nano-Core carbon formed into a CS-3 macromolecular structure with three covalent bonds for extreme strength and rigidity and weighs just 550g at 8m. The carbon undergoes a unique VC-X curing process under extreme pressure to force out any tiny air imperfections for a more consistent action and further increases the strength in each section. The pole features new C-Fuse aligner system sections and kits meaning they are interchangeable across the Nano-Core range (excl. no4 to no7) and CKB colour keyed bush-fit bands showing exactly where to cut back to fit Middy PTFE bushes. The graphite used in this pole can withstand temperatures of 3800 Kelvin (equivalent to 3502 degrees centigrade) and it is this unique HKD process that provides immense and consistent stability when the pole is subjected to extreme summer temperatures. Also new with the Nano-Core poles is a range of Safe-Zone mini reversible butts, which feature soft EVA domed ends to protect the pole from elbows and when shipping back. Another great feature of the Nano-Core poles range is that every single elastic kit is pull-it reinforced, ready for fitting a side pull-it bush. The sections in this pole are micro-ground to create a low friction S-Slide surface, making shipping back faster and almost effortless. The balance ratio is 11.7 Newtons at 8m with flick-tip fitted; while other pole makers only provide a weight, it is actually this balance ratio that gives you a true guide to the feel of the pole.
