The SWAGE blank is very thin. It is rolled under high pressure for maximum density to ensure flexibility and strength. The new X-REINFORCE uses carbon fibre made up of 6000 strands of fibre. The carbon fibre is crossed over the blank to reinforce and improve strength and durability by 4 to 7 percent. Each rod is given a unique identification number and a 30 second video is made and stored of the rod being individually tested.
SWAGE uses custom-made FUJI SIC guides (PKWSG S RING J TYPE) to ensure quality. This gives the guides a smooth run, less tangle and uniform, constant slope. The crafted EVA grip has six lathed indentations to prevent slippage. The GIMBAL has been lengthened with an addition space to insert a weight for improved balance. All aluminium accessories are laser-printed. These aluminium accessories are standardized, sanded and polished. They do not actually touch the blank itself to ensure that the stresses are evenly distributed. The under the foot of the guide the blank is wrapped twice, then the foot is bound twice and accurately lined up. The space between the feet of the guide is left exposed for improve aesthetics.
