Platinum XD Competitor Special
Replaced by the XF2 Comp Special.
The Platinum range has long been the benchmark rod for the serious stillwater angler. Its fast action, quick recovery tip and all round power make it the ultimate big water casting tool. The XD Comp Special takes the range into its next dimension.
We've slimmed down the range to just three models to give added focus. The new non-flash matt olive finish might look utilitarian but in harsh, sunny conditions it may be the edge you need. The incorporation of rubber into the cork handle increases durability. Grip is also enhanced in the wet and that's a feature you will appreciate any month of the year. The reel seat is black, hard-anodised and totally secure throughout a demanding, big casting day. It will never swell even if you put it away wet and, of course, it's saltwater proof if you fancy a session after bass or mullet.
- Designed on our own test rig to produce flawless performance and extreme durability
- Ultra-thin, ultra-light blanks combined with a fast tip action create smooth, tight loops and easy distance casting
- Great looks and subtle finish
- Supplied in a cordura rod tube
“When I used the Greys Platinum XD Competitor Special for the first time I was amazed! It jerked the rod out of my hands when casting a full line and had fantastic control when playing fish. I have been fishing for over sixty years and never has a rod impressed me so much.”
