Model description

The TNHX 103 10’ #3 is a great all-round river rod for general upstream nymph and dry fishing in European conditions.  It combines a sensitive tip with plenty of feel and feedback with a tippy action and strong butt and mid-section, a lively rod with real zip.  Accurate at short range casting off the tip, and capable of long casts drawing on the power of the blank. Rated #3 by the manufacturer it casts a #4 line equally well and would also be suitable as a light stillwater or upland lochan fishing rod for floating line applications.  Sufficient tip power for heavier nymphs, duo rigs an even smaller weighted streamers, sufficient delicacy for small dry flies. Perfect 'River Usk' rod.(TNHX 103 without extension available mid August 2022  £90 ex VAT)



The '+1' version further improves the flexibilty of this versatile blank by including a 12" piece that fits between the 3rd and butt section to extend the rod to 11' for longer reach nymphing applications with a slightly deeper flex profile.  No guides are needed on the extension section, so it can be fitted on the bank without re-stringing your rod for an instant change in tactics.  It has its own pocket in the rod sock supplied.   


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.
