This month sees the launch of a new range of feeder rods from MAP, re-imagining the Ultra II brand name.
Further enhancing the Parabolix line-up of high-performance rods, the Ultra II range of feeder rods offers the user a premium tool for all occasions.
Sitting above the existing Parabolix: Black Edition rods, the Ultra II range of seven rods are based upon a Nano Carbon blank that is stronger yet never compromises on feel, enabling you to cast further and with more accuracy. Nano Carbon and its resin is an incredibly robust material in strength, and is almost twice as strong as conventional resins when cured, yet without any change in weight or to the rod’s action. This creates a non-locking action so no matter how hard you pull, the rod still offers cushioning and power to subdue your target!
Not only have we fine-tuned each rod’s action, we have focussed on how we can create tips that offer true versatility; each Nano Carbon carbon tip is softer, and more progressive than our previous carbon tip designs, offering enhanced sensitivity and bite indication without ever leaving the rod’s casting abilities compromised.
To reinforce the Ultra II range as our most premium offering, each two-piece blank is fitted with oversized guides and high performance reel seat from industry leaders, Fuji. The unique rubberized handle ensures grip is never lost, no matter what the weather, and each rod is supplied a set of neoprene rod wraps, in addition to a padded rod bag.
