10' #3 4-piece Taniwha Nano-helix high modulus carbon fibre fly rod blanksSupplied blank only. Optional good quality black rod sock and matching black cordura or matt black carbon fibre rod tube available as selectable product extras.The TNH 1003 10’ #3 is a great all-round river rod for general upstream nymph and dry fishing in European conditions. It combines a sensitive tip with plenty of feel and feedback with a tippy action and strong butt and mid-section, a lively rod with real zip. Rated #3 by the manufacturer it casts a #4 line equally well and would also be suitable as a light stillwater or upland lochan fishing rod for floating line applications. TNH seriesTaniwha Nano-helix blanks are carefully constructed fast and sensitive hi-modulus carbon fibre fly rod tapers from a designer whose early career included designing high performance fly rods for a well regarded New Zealand brand before establishing his own advanced composites manufacturing facility based in China. These blanks offer premium quality fit, finish and performance at a surprisingly reasonable price. Taniwha Rodworks exclusive. The TNH series incorporates high-modulus, uni-directional carbon fibre pre-pregs wrapped on a helical carbon fibre scrim with the latest nano resin adhesives for optimum strength to weight performance, hoop strength and blank recovery speed. The result is a light, slim, strong and sensitive blank with fine tips, plenty of feel and fast tip recovery. Most of the flex is in the top third of the blank (mid-tip to tip flex action depending on the model) and they are a delight to cast and fish with good power reserves for taming larger catches and carrying longer casts.
