New XO 9′ #5 MEDIUM model available. This medium version is equipped with a bit deeper action than the original XO 9′ #5. Excels in roll and spey casts even with indicator setups.
We started the XO project in 2013. The goal was to make a rod that exceeds all the rods we’ve made so far in every aspect. In this time we have tried and tested a lot of different combinations of materials and actions. Good enough was not going to cut it – it had to be as close to perfect as possible. We also wanted to add something that tells about our origins in Finland.
