Kilwell NZ v Kilwell - A definition

Kilwell NZ rods are designed and made right here in New Zealand, in our Rotorua factory (Kilwell Fibretube).  These include the Xantu, Innovation, Original and Presentation series in Fly rods, and International, Life Fibre (L/F2) and Sceptre in Saltwater Rods. 

Kilwell rods are imported from overseas. Over the years our buyers have spent considerable time in Asia where they have identified the very best rod making factories that can produce fishing rods worthy of carrying the Kilwell branding. The result is a series of price pointed rods made to our stringent specifications and ideally suited to New Zealand conditions.

Both Kilwell NZ and Kilwell carry the Kilwell Lifetime Warranty.
