Taniwha TNH 1002 10' #2 model description
This model is different to the rest of the range, being an ultra-sensitive medium action light line fly rod. It is specifically designed for European and leader-to-hand style nymphing, light Czech nymph/bugging and spider fishing. It excels at short to medium range on more intimate waters where ultimate delicacy of presentation is paramount. The mid-flex action and delicate tip transmit every knock and will execute a flick cast with a leader only system or with a light European nymphing line, for ultimate presentation delicacy. The butt provides fish fighting power and the blank will flex deeply to tame fish whilst protecting ultra-light tippets, but go for the TNH 1003 model if you need to control large fish in strong currents. Whilst traditional fly casting is not its design purpose it will also cast a #1 or #2 at short to medium range for standard upstream techniques, using a light and more delicately tapered line like a WF #2 Cortland Sylk. Very light for a 10' rod, just 81g or 2.8oz with a stabilised wood insert. Blank weight 43g (1.5 oz).
Taniwha Nano-helix high modulus carbon fibre fly rods (4-piece).
Taniwha Rodworks exclusive. Supplied with a good quality black polycotton rod sock, and a black cordura rod tube.
High modulus fly rods. Premium quality blank, cork and components with reel seat custom options.
The TNH series incorporates high-modulus, uni-directional carbon fibre pre-preg 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 very light, slim, strong and sensitive rod 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 longer casts.
