We have been on a massive journey to launch these blanks and after rigorous attempts to infuse graphene nano platelets (in the form of Graphene Oxide) into the prepreg of a base 63 million modulus Toray carbon fibre, finally cracked it! As in any new project it can be the simplest things that, through experimentation, offer solutions.... Like resin temperature, viscosity and messing about with vacuum chambers!An increase in hoop strength by 28%! These are probably the strongest blanks in the world. Even though we were working with a higher modulus carbon than the XL50 range the actions are almost identical so even though we wanted a powerful super fast action these blanks are light, responsive and parabolic (so not poker stiff). For experienced rod builders you will notice I have posted a picture of the butt "walls" to show uniformly they have been rolled. The picture with the blank under stress is me pushing the blank vertically towards the ceiling with maximum force, hence the very weird "T" shape!!! DONT TRY THIS AT HOME! Finished in bronze with the following specifications. Butt OD: 10.26mm/0.403. Tip OD: 1.67mm/0.065. Building a fly rod is not difficult but there are a few tips and tricks I will be happy to share with you if this is your first build.
