Description:
Apart from improvements in materials, pole design has changed very little in more than 100 years. Browning have redesigned the specification for a new generation of poles and solved previous limitations. The result is the new Xitan Z12 Evolution - the first of a new style of high performance, competition poles, purpose designed by Browning. Their Xitan Z9 pole is recognised as one of the best all-rounders on the market with a perfect balance between strength, weight and stiffness. Browning have applied the same well proven nano-carbon technology to the new Z12 Evolution so strength is assured. However, Browning have re-engineered the section lengths to optimise the poles stiffness. The Z12 is ultra stiff when striking or fishing in sidewinds, but has been designed to have some “action” in the lower sections when under extreme load to absorb the pressure from hard fighting fish. The Z12 Evolution has innovative new features which put it well above other poles on performance, convenience, ease of use.

  • Review by Guest Aug 1, 2015

    ive had my z12 for a month now its a luvly pole stiff seems strong the finish is realy nce when dry and wet but when part wet part dry its a tad sticky but no issue, ive used 17 preston hollow with the long number carp 4 with a puller kit an i found it does bend quiet a bit with a carp on ,the pole protectors r very nce there solid as a rock alltho i dont like using then blow 11.5 meters for roach as they make the pole a tad heaver but for carp ide use them one thing i found is at 16.8m with the protector in it is heavy , i like to have the protector bhind me to counter balance the pole,but at 14.5 the protector counters it very well indeed as the heaver end is on ur elbow , the z12 at 14.5m is the same langth as my map parabolixsti at 16m , just goes to show how short some other makes of pole r ,the match kits r very lite an its a plessure to fish long with them all in all im very inpressed so far

    When buying a top end pole its important to remember what you plan to use it for. For the bigger carp I'd consider the air, super legion, 801 and either of the new top sensas 900 range; the 974 and 984. The air, the legion and 984 aren't as strong (despite the 984 elastic rating of 20) although still strong enough for the large carp and make up for this by being lighter and easier to ship in and out. Then there are poles for lighter fishing; small carp, f1's and silver. These are softer but lighter and much nicer to hold at long lengths but not as strong. The the air, super legion and 984 also fall in this category (they are amazing all round poles) also the acolyte and the z12 or 14(same pole different dolly butts) and finally the MAP 901. I've held all except the new senas poles and mentioned them based on an opinion from a friend that has. Before you buy a pole, hold it and remember it has to suit your fishing.

    Recently purchased a Z12 after being given a deal i couldnt refuse, so glad i took it, its the most amazing pole ever, i've had a few maver competition series poles, but this browning is second to none, by far the best pole for commercial carp fishing, it handles every situation with ease, no tip bounce, super stiff, very strong, balanced brilliant, pole protector sections are bullet proof, joints are great and the strengthened points make you more confident handling a £2500+ pole , would reccomend any of the browning Xitan poles to anybody, also have the margin pole aswell which is solid!

  • Review by Mr Nobody Sep 19, 2014

    I've read every top end pole review on this site and they all get a mixture of glowing reviews and slagging off. It's strange how different anglers can have such different experiences with the same pole.
    I've owned poles from 7 makers and none of them have been "bad", and fish caused breakages have been rare on all of them.
    I'm going to buy a Z14 next(my 3rd Browning) only because I think their poles have the edge on all round performance at the moment, but I would be just as happy to fish with a Daiwa, Garbo etc.

  • Review by benbgentle Sep 4, 2014

    I would rather sit on my dolly butt that buy a Browning pole again.. nothing but drama and a pain in the arse......

  • Review by bas16 Apr 7, 2014

    Brilliant pole, used it for 11 months, spares are no problem, it has handled carp to 16lb and is equally good for silvers. Excellent bit of kit.

  • Review by simon elliss Mar 1, 2014

    Having had my z12 pro package over a year now I can only say well done browning for manufacturing probably the best pole on the market by far!!! Tried the rest no comparison..

  • Review by Steady74 Feb 3, 2014

    Please be kind to watch and share this winning opportunity to help me to get back my Z12.

    Thanks a lot!

  • Review by Billy the Fish Jan 23, 2014

    Ive seen a Z10 and it looks EXCATLY the same as the 12 with all the same reinforcing on the middle sections and butts. Graphics are yellow instead of red. The sections feel incredibly strong - but the pole still wasn't that heavy.

  • Review by guest Jan 20, 2014

    can say if the z10 has the same reinforced pressure points as the z12 as I cant find any images from browning zebco
