Daiwa Infinity DF X45 Rods,
Daiwa is a brand with its heritage firmly place in angling excellence. Original a fishing reel manufacturer, Daiwa has been designing and manufacturing a whole host of angling products since the 1950s. Its constant technological innovation and exceedingly high standards of manufacture have ensured that it remains at the pinnacle of angling excellence and it is one of the highest regarded brands across the globe. Korda
, in comparison, is a new kid on the angling block. However, it has been quick to make a name for itself and over the past 20 years it has firmly established itself as the forerunner in the design and manufacture of serious carp fishing tackle. This is in no small part down to the expertise of Korda’s lead man – Danny Fairbrass. An angling legend in his own right, he has practically single-handedly built Korda into the carp fishing empire it is today.
If you were going to put together a fantasy team for the manufacture of carp fishing
tackle then these two names would certainly appear on your roster. With these Daiwa Infinity DF X45 Rods, your dreams have become reality. This rod series was imagined by Danny and manufactured by Daiwa – if ever there was a rod designed by anglers for anglers then this is surely it. If you thought the original Daiwa Infinity DF rod series was the pinnacle of carp rod perfection then think again – Danny and the Daiwa team have bettered the best and this new Infinity DF X45 offers significant improvement on a rod that was previously considered ‘un-improvable’.
The X45 in the rod name comes from an innovative technology at play in the blank. All rods experience enhanced compression and wear in significant key areas, due to their construction and their use. For most rods these key areas will be the areas where you will see the most obvious signs of wear and tear towards the end of the rods life – including a reduction in performance and eventual breakages. X45 technology combats this, ensuring that these weakest areas become the strongest areas of the rod. You can imagine the kind of benefits this provides to the lifespan of a rod; however, this isn’t the only resulting improvement. These key compression areas are the areas that hold the most potential power in your rod, so by strengthening them you allow the rod to deliver greater power during the cast. In short, X45 allows you to cast further and more accurately, whilst also extending the life of your rod. If you’re like Danny and you enjoy flexing your carp fishing muscles on the water then you need look no further – this rod series will allow you to punch out to truly remarkable distances and it is the ideal tool for the dedicated distance angler.
This isn’t the only improvement featured on the Infinity DF X45 Carp Rods. Minima 4 guides feature throughout the range and offer a high diameter guide configuration for increased performance accuracy during distance casts. These ensure that you experience minimal friction throughout your cast – helping you to gain those extra few inches as well as preventing premature wear on your line. As you will have come to expect, these rods still feature the custom designed DF finish – meeting Danny’s exacting specifications. This includes a silver coloured butt cap, a Fuji graphite reel seat, and a profile shrink tube handle. The blank itself boasts the Infinity Magnum Taper and has a silk-matt low-glare finish, so you look as great as your captures on the bank. The Daiwa Infinity DF X45 truly represents the next generation in carp rod design.
