Built specifically for margin work in the summer months, the XR8 has
awesome strength and at up to 11.5m it allows big-lumps to be caught with ease.
While it has a 25+ elastic rating, in truth it would likely handle up to 30 elastic if
it existed. There is also the option to take this pole to 13m with the addition of a
Generic 13m Extension. The XR8 offers an ideal way to enter the Nano-Core pole
range with low cost, knowing all sections and kits are compatible with all other
models in the range should you choose to upgrade. It comes with a Match3 G-16
kit in the pole and the package then includes a Karp2 G-25 kit with pull-it facility
(supplied in a tube), along with a Safe-Zone Karp reversible 10/11.5m mini-butt,
free elastication kits and an Xtreme Pole Carry Case.
