Jupps. Xzoga is a Malaysian operation. Blanks are almost certainly from China.

 

I have seen a lot of Xzoga rods as the medium price point suits the southeast Asian market where I live.  Frankly though, I am not at all impressed with them and you will do better for the money asked in most cases.

jupps , I've had a few Xzogas before .

 

From the custom Taka G 66 to factory made ones as well , they are good rods for the price . They use a very very thin mandrel to role they're so called python graphite blanks which i think its just another name to increase sale.

The blanks are very very dense in graphite but amazingly thin at the top , the fish well only think i didn't like was that the blanks are a bit stiff . Overall good rod , fuji components & all that. However as the market runs now a days , Xzoga its a bit too steep for their product ,there are much better rod pout there now for lesser

Anthony, yes I agree with you . The price is a little too steep
Considering It is manufactured in china and assemble in Malaysia.
