Extensive field-testing was conducted to create an ISO rod to suit the fishing environment in Australia by the team at Isofishinglifestyle. The prototype was tested over several months to identify and correct flaws. Multiple changes were made before it was finalised to ensure sensitivity, balance and power. The Excalibur range was designed specifically for Australian waters but is suitable for use in international locations.
The ultimate ISO fishing for angler seeking a challenge. Weighing in at only 170g the Type 0 is a rod to push anglers to the limit. Built with precision to provide the best possible feedback to fisherman whereby finesse is the important. The tip is sensitive enough to pick up the lightest taps whilst holding the signature backbone strength towards the bottom 1/3 of the rod. Can be fished as low as 2lb line for those daring too. Perfect for chasing fish such as bream, silver trevally, luderick, whiting and zebra fish. The Type 0 is considered to be between a #0.4 and #0.8 in ISO rod ratings depending on the brand and model.
The Type I is a lighter, more versatile model suited, but not limited to species including bream, silver trevally, luderick, black drummer, surgeon fish and whiting. The Type I enables anglers to feel the softest of bites with its sensitive tip due to the high grade carbon which provides accurate and instant feedback. Sensitivity is the key feature of this model with the first two sections having a slower taper than the rest of the rod which responds with progressive backbone strength to catch larger fish such as black drummer, bonito, salmon and kingfish. Whether you are fishing in the harbour for bream or rock hopping for black drummer the Excalibur will provide maximum sport on light tackle. Weighing only 200 grams and equipped with a superb balance system the Type I can be used for hours with ease. The Type I is considered to be between a #1 and #1.5 in ISO rod ratings depending on the brand and model.
Welcome the big brother in the Excalibur range, the Type II. For those targeting kingfish, larger black drummer, silver drummer, snapper, surgeonfish and medium sized groper, this is the rod for you. With more grunt in the backbone, the Type II will give you that extra stopping power for powerful fish. Also featuring the same balancing system as the Type I, the Type II feels light in your hands and is easily maneuverable. A tip diameter of only 0.9mm is in line with the goal of the Isofishinglifestyle team to deliver a sensitive ISO rod that allows an angler to feel every bite. The Type II is considered to be between a #2 and #2.5 depending on the brand and model.
