TNHX 905 9’ #5 fly rod blank
Available blank only including a good quality black cotton rod sock, or add a discounted rod tube. Components sold separately.
The TNHX 905 9’ #5 is a fast action all-rounder with a sensitive and fast recovering tip section and tip flex action. Rated #5 by the manufacturer, the is blank is accurate at both short and medium range with the butt and midsection power to reach out considerably further when needed. A little extra power compared to the standard TNH 9’ #5, capable of lifting and re-shooting a long line without false casting.
Nano-helix TNH X-weave
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.
As a refinement to the TNH blank range, the TNHX models add two fine reinforcing strips of Toray carbon fibre wrapped under tension in a cross-weave ‘X’ pattern before curing. These serve to further compress and strengthen the blank, enhancing its performance, durability and impact resistance.
