M4 EVO

Zziplex M4 EVO design philosophy in the tip section features a higher ratio of carbon fibre to glass content than its GT cousin, and this alters the action and recovery, but it still retains good bite indication.

The action of M4 EVO is suitable for clean, medium to medium hard ground, stormy seas and calm conditions: it is supremely versatile. The carbon tip is quick and decisive but still reacts well to rattle and indicative bites. The overall battle curve under pressure is more parabolic and the loadings through compression, in cast and retrieve, are passed quickly to the more powerful areas of the butt for distance and control.

Description

Zziplex M4 EVO design philosophy in the tip section features a higher ratio of carbon fibre to glass content than its GT cousin, and this alters the action and recovery, but it still retains good bite indication.

The action of M4 EVO is suitable for clean, medium to medium hard ground, stormy seas and calm conditions: it is supremely versatile. The carbon tip is quick and decisive but still reacts well to rattle and indicative bites. The overall battle curve under pressure is more parabolic and the loadings through compression, in cast and retrieve, are passed quickly to the more powerful areas of the butt for distance and control.

The butt and tip are designed to work well together through clever and imaginative use of the composites. The innovative structure allows long casts with less effort as the design manages to efficiently store the energy it receives in the casting phase and release is smooth and balanced.

The designer’s long experience in building rods using a custom-made high tenacity carbon fibre with a high modulus of elasticity is very evident in this rod.
