ABOUT XANTU.LAYER CONSTRUCTION
In a world first, Kilwell have combined nano particle resin with Xantu.Layer electrospun nanofibre in a fishing rod blank.
Nanofibres are defined as fibres with diameters less than 1000 nanometers.
Xantu.Layer is a polymer hybrid of continuous nanofibres forming a non-woven web.
This layer bonds with nano resin and carbon fibre to create a rod blank featuring a dramatic increase in flexural lifting power, without increasing weight.
XANTU.LAYER Blank Properties
