Taniwha TSH 662 6'6"#2 line S-helix S-glass fly rod blanks, 3-piece
Available blank only including a good quality black cotton rod sock. Option to add a discounted rod tube or components set, other component choices sold separately.
TSH blanks are made from uni-directional S-glass, a higher strain and faster recovery fiberglass almost identical in modulus to cane, with a helical wound S-glass scrim for improved hoop strength and faster blank recovery. The action of the 662 model is medium progressive, flexing a little deeper than the longer models with a comparatively stiffer (but not stiff) tip to ensure that it casts a range of flies well including beahdead nymphs . The relaxed smoothness that is the hallmark of casting a fiberglass fly rod is retained, but with plenty of zip on line shoot and a reserve power in the butt for surprise small stream lunkers.
Taniwha S-helix series of fibre glass fly rod tapers are specified to our requirements, refined through several prototype testing stages. They are made by 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. They offer excellent performance, and first class fit and finish at a very reasonable price for this quality.
Available colours: ice and olive translucent, unsanded finish, matt clear coat. Ferrules are tip-over-butt (not spigots).
Tip: 1.4mm #4.0 (a #3.5 may fit)
