We made a very successful upgrade to the XO rod series by introducing the XO Graphene rods. We wanted to do the same for the Merisuola range as Merisuola and Graphene are truly meant to be together. With this new material available for these rods, and with it being the strongest tested material in the world, these rods just beg to get out and hunt bigger predatory fish. When one of these rods is cast the first time the difference is noticeble right away.
Graphene makes it possible to make stronger rods with less material which results actionwise in unbelievable strength combined with smooth action. The backbone of the Merisuola Graphene family consists of four piece lightweight fast action saltwater rods targeted at everything between the Caribbean bonefish, Baltic seatrout and the GT’s of the Pacific. These rods incorporate everything we have learned during 20+ years of rod design and manufacturing.
We give a rating for the carbon that is used in each of our graphite rods. The higher the number the higher the modulus of the carbon that is used for the rod. The rating is closely related to the tonnage of the carbon in each of the rods. However this is not the whole truth as we use different carbon mixtures to achieve the wanted rod action and also the resins differ from model to model. But this rating is an indication of the main carbon used in the blank. Our premium rods use graphene in the resin and rods are identified by the Graphene logo.
