The XT15-3 is a strong pole for baggin yet it retains enough finesse for a bit of silverfish work if required. You get all the features of the top-end Reactacore models in a package that is massive 22 elastic strong. If you opt for the 13m package you even get DNS for precise fishing at distance. Anyone with the earlier XT15 models need not worry about section and kits compatibility because all remain totally compatible. This new model is even stronger than its predecessors due to Maximus Wrap on the joints to increase pole life. If you opt for the longer 13.5m package then you will also be able to take advantage of the DNS distance numbering system.
