SHAPING 8 REVOLUTIONS IN HOW WE FISH
The advanced, leading-edge material behind
R8 enables us to shape a rod with a stiffer, stronger backbone but a more
sensitive tip and more connected feel. The secret is twofold. First, a
proprietary aerospace composite with a greater hoop strength enables us to
dimensionally grow taper diameter more quickly from the tip—while a
nano-sintered resin application increases axial resilience and allows us to
pack more fiber into the blank, resulting in that true two-way connection from
hand to fly and back for greater feel, flow and control.
NEW AXIAL FIBER
nano-sintered resin application and a more resilient axial fiber allow us to
re-profile the dimensional taper to get thicker quicker from tip to butt –
resulting in better energy transfer and greater feel. Simply put – a better and
more efficient „wiring“ of energy.
transfer shifts the sweet spot closer to the hand creating a more natural
extension of your arm for greater range, quicker reactivity and less wasted
fibers hold blank in optimal cylindrical shape creating greater circumferential
strength – continuously maintaining inherent taper profile while actively
engaged or under tension.
MADE IN THE USA
not a big faceless factory, but rather a workplace of craftspeople who design
and build the world’s best fly rods and reels using our hands and hearts. We do
it by sharing ideas and always asking the next question to find what can be
done to make this better. Our rods are built one at time right here on
Bainbridge Island, WA, following hundreds of meticulous steps and passing
through 23 sets of hands. We’re out there fishing the same places in the same
unforgiving conditions that you are. Craftsmanship is applied experience.
