The Silver Creek-X-C was introduced in 2000 alongside the Silver Creek-Z-C.  The X-C is a slightly less tuned version of the Z-C.  It boasts similar features to the Z-C such as an ABS Spool, Twist Buster 2, and a titanium coated line roller.  It also shares the same lightweight cork knob and shallow 2004 sized spool.  The X-C though is slightly heavier weighing in at 7.2oz and is equipped with three fewer bearings from the factory.  The spool differs slightly in cosmetics from the Z-C.  The reel also came with a neoprene reel pouch.
