The popular Vendetta has been upgraded with a new cutting edge design and advances technology for added strength and durability. The new design is precision engineered for a balanced feel with advanced 30 ton graphite that utilizes advanced Intra Carbon technology. Intra Carbon technology uses very thin layers of multidirectional carbon fibers within the construction of the rod. These layers provide an increase in the compression strength of the rod making the rod less susceptible to failure when the rod is put under intense loads. The 30 Ton rating indicates a superior grade of graphite. The result is a lighter rod with increased sensitivity. The higher the tonnage, the stiffer the fibers used in the construction of the rod. Stiffer fibers more efficiently transmit vibrations to your hand so you can feel more strikes.
