The Adams XTZ Euro Nymph Rod come in two different lengths, 10 foot or 10.6 foot, for line weight #2 with a medium fast action.
They features the “X-TorZion Technology” for thinner, stiffer and lightweight blanks. This innovative technology combines 6 separate ultra thin layers of high modulus Japanese nano carbon material, applied at varying angles of 45 degrees which neutralize torque and increase rod performance that can be felt when casting the line, drifting the nymph and playing any fish. The XTZ’s main features are sensitivity, reactivity and a perfect balance. The blank has a smooth but very quick tip recovery with a «crisp» backbone. The tip section has enough stiffness for a positive and controlled hook set, while the amazing amount of rod flex will protect the lightest of tippets, even when fighting trophy fish. Applying the advantages of “X-TorZion Technology” into a line of rod blanks, a "medium fast action" blank has been chosen, for a deeper flexing blank, enabling the angler effortless, controlled and delicate presentations of even very small, lightweight nymph patterns and great casting when switching to a dry fly setup. The euronymphing purists will benefit from the unsanded "spiral wrap finish" of the XTZ blank, as "mono rigs" can be subject to annoying line stick with sanded and painted blanks under rainy conditions; the spiral wrap finish will counteract this effectively.
An ergonomic Custom CFX Grip with a natural carbon fiber sparkle and shine textured finish, extremely strong under compression and still retaining flex under load. As euronymphing techniques require the rod to be extremely sensitive in order to detect even the most cautious bites, and cork being an insulating material by virtue, the Adams XTZ Euro Nymph Rod features a CFX Vibra Core Material that is a vibration-amplifying material, not an insulator, making them extremely resonance-sensitive.
An ALPS Rod Components CNC-machined 6061-T6-aluminum down-locking reel seat for perfecting balance with any fly reel. The reel seat includes a CFX Composite Grips carbon fiber insert with the same finish and properties of the XTZ carbon handle, for added comfort when playing a fish and to have a counterweight effect.
The XTZ rods uses ultra-lightweight single foot Black Pearl PVD-finished Recoil Guides, the most lightweight and durable guides available. Recoil guides are made of a special, extremely hard-wearing and smooth nickel-titanium alloy. The inherent physical properties of Recoil guides include extreme light weight, crucial in building overall lightweight tip section, with substantially reduced swing weight resulting in a faster rod recovery, hence less counterflex for optimal casting precision. Ten single foot guides and one snake guide right placed next to the tiptop guide to help ease the fly line/leader knot through the guides. The XTZ being a pure euronymphing rod, has the stripping guide just about 20 cm above the handle to reduce line snag to a minimum. With occurring line friction of stiff monofilament lines, Fuji SIC stripping guides have been a gold standard in the industry for over 20 years, reducing abrasion to a minimum.
The XTZ rods are well protected in a black, triangular Cordura-covered PVC rod tube with divider and a shoulder strap.
