SURFCASTING TELESCOPIC Love and hate. Telescopic surf casting rods don’t know half measures. Many anglers just dislike them, but on the other hand, many other will never go fishing without them. We want everybody happy and thanks to our great knowledge and experience that lead us to build the most beautiful 3 sections rods in the world, we think to be able to deliver the
For years, Cassandra has been the most desired telescopic rod by lovers of Italian surfcasting, for that, on the paper, it seemed quite difficult to do something new. We believe that we have finally hit the target, thanks to the use of X-Joint technology that completely changes the response and action parameters of the blank during the casting stages. In fact, X-Joint eliminates dead spots at the section’s joints, allowing a perfect curve, dropping residual oscillations after the cast, increasing resistance on the joints and distributing stress along the structure of the whole blank. The mandrel does not change, because the handle diameter must remain as thin as possible, in order to quickly cut through the air during the cast. The tip section is short, made from solid carbon and without any sliding guides for the highest performance during cast, but also bite sensitive while fishing. The saltwater proof components include original Sea Guide double leg MN corrosion free guides, screw reel seat and non-slip grip Code 170-89-100 170-89-130 170-89-150

best telescopic rods ever. We are so confident in our job that we think that some 3 section’s loverS will integrate his own rod range with some of our telescopic! Also for telescopic we invested money, time and attention, we casted thousands and thousands of times, to make our tele-rods the best you can buy.

It’s well known that all joints connecting rod’s sections are weak points, both from strength and action’s point of view, as they cause those “dead spots” which are risky in term of breakage, beyond the bad looking. The solution is hidden in the X-JOINT technology, which means that - on joints area - carbon cloths are laid by 45° angle instead of 90°. TRADITIONAL REINFORCEMENT
• Stress is concentrated at both ends • Dead spots, risk of breakage 45° REINFORCEMENT (X-JOINT)
• Stress is dispersed along the blank • Perfect curve, no breakage risk 0° UNI-DIRECTIONAL CARBON
• Perfect curve, without dead spots. • Unique coexistence of flexibility and stiffness • Higher structural strength, because stress is dispersed through the blank, instead of being concentrated on joint’s ends. • Less oscillations at the end of casting, which means quicker re-alignment of guides. Within X-Joint by Trabucco, the carbon cloth is wound by two directions, and such construction is visible on top end of each section. 90° SCRIM CARBON
+ The carbon fibers oriented along the longitudinal rod’s axis (0° unidirectional carbon) provide great resistance to linear traction.

Aluminium and rubber butt cap.
X-JOINT ± 45° CARBON TECHNOLOGY
+ The carbon fibers oriented at 90° to longitudinal rod’s axis enable the cross section to resist the compression caused by strong flexion.
The X-Joint carbon fibers, oriented at ±45° to rod’s axis, are able to absorb and disperse the torque, improving the joint’s performance and saving the rest of the section.
