TNHX 906 9’ #6 4pc Nanohelix X-weave high modulus 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 906 9’ #6 is a punchy, fast action mid weight with a strong tip, fast-recovering tip section and tip flex action. Rated #6 by the manufacturer, the is blank is accurate and powerful and ideal for lure and streamer fishing including inshore saltwater use, or for mixed river fishing where there is the prospect of large fish in strong currents. Added power compared to the standard TNH 9’ #6, 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.
