The XR8 has an awesome amount of pulling power, with the backbone to cope with really big units. Rated to a 25 elastic, it would likely handle up to a size 30 if it existed. There’s the option to take this pole up to 13m with a generic extension.
The XR8 offers low-cost entry into the Middy Nano-Core club, and top kits are all compatible with those of other poles in the range.
