10 foot for line #5 4-piece Taniwha Nano-helix high modulus carbon fibre fly rod blanksAvailable blank only including a good quality black cotton rod sock, or add a discounted rod tube. Components sold separately.
The TNH 105 blank combines a sensitive tip with plenty of feel and feedback with a tippier action and strong butt and mid-section, a lively rod with real zip. Rated #5 by the manufacturer and will also handle a #6 line. This is a flexible fly rod blank well-suited to a range of applications including stillwater and loch angling, topwater and dry fly in particular, and all round large river use with added mending reach and casting range, especially if wading deeper. The blank is similar in character and performance to the TNH 1003 and TNH1004, with added power for larger nymphs and dries, multiifly rigs, and smaller to medium suze lures. Same great TNH series action and performance, new stealth finish for 2021 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.
