8 foot 6" for line #4 4-piece Taniwha Nano-helix high modulus carbon fibre fly rod blanks,Supplied blank only. Optional good quality black rod sock and matching black cordura or matt black carbon fibre rod tube available as selectable product extras.TNH 864 8’6" #4 model description
The perfect faster action rod for upstream dry and nymphing on small to medium rivers. Long enough to track current seams and cast over bankside vegetation, but not so long as to complicate casting under the tree canopy. Super light, accurate and responsive, sensitive tip, fast recovery and crisp action, fast but not too stiff. Ample power to reach out further when needed.
TNH seriesSame great TNH series action and performance, new stealth finish for 2021 Taniwha 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.
