Rod Tech



Graphene is an allotrope of carbon in the form of a single layer of atoms in a two dimensional hexagonal lattice. It is recognized as being one of the strongest materials known and properties include, 200 times stronger than steel, harder than a diamond, and can stretch 20-25% of its original length. Integrating this super material into the High Performace Resin system (HPR) of the composite allows the carbon blank to take on new capabilities as it allows the normal brittle carbon composite to stretch and disperse the energy throughout the rod making the rod very strong.


Auto Clave Processing

After being rolled on the mandrel, typical composite processing places the blank in a kiln to cure the resins. Auto clave processing places the blank in a vacuum bag in a high pressure chamber. The result is a very dense composite that is void of slight air pockets in the resin, making a resin lean composite.


Anti-Twist Tech, TexTreme, 1K Carbon, S2 Glass

The Anti-Twist Tech is a double helical construction of the carbon designed to stop the energy loss from side to side torsion. Upon casting, built up energy wants to be released. This tech releases that energy on a linear plane, resulting in longer and more accurate casts. 

TexTreme Spread Tow carbon reinforcement brings light weight reinforcement to a new level. This thin outer carbon wrap protects the carbon blank while speeding up tip recovery and aiding the anti-twist to give the rod a dramatic "punchy" feel. 

S2-Glass is a popular reinforcement fabric in modern aerospace applications. incorporating this into the carbon matrix in a few of the models gives it a boost in strength and sensitivity.
