MAXUMFIBER is our proprietary fiber material used in all of our graphite and composite rods. What makes it special? MAXUMFIBER allows our rod design team to utilize less material in the overall blank construction which helps decrease weight and improve sensitivity, all while retaining the crucial durability that every angler needs. Our longitudinal fibers stay intact better because they are married together by a super lightweight resin which is then intertwined with a similarly lightweight (and truly space-aged) webbing. This combination of design and technology increases the hoop strength, helps the fibers resist elongation/separation, and improves the dampening characteristics of the blank for a crisp, lively action that’s a pleasure to use. Through our immense expertise and rigorous R&D program, we are able to offer our customers extreme performance at great price points. When you’ve been making fishing rods for over 100 years one thing is for certain: you didn't get there by chance!
Powell proudly uses Fuji components on all of our rods. The reason behind this is simple: we think there is no finer, more consistent, more dependable components available on the market today!
