Premium S-glass 8'0" #5 fly rod blank $0.00

Generation 2 Taniwha TSH 805 8' #5 S-helix S-glass fly rod blanks, 4-piece

Available blank only including a good quality black cotton rod sock, or add a discounted rod tube.  Components 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 is fast-medium to fast for glass, loading progressively with the initial flex mainly in the top third of the blank .  The relaxed smoothness that is the hallmark of casting a fiberglass fly rod is retained, but with plenty of zip on line shoot and ample reserve power to fight larger fish or to lift and aerialise longer lines. 

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.  

TSH 805 8'0 #5, 4-piece model description

A true 5-weight all rounder with plenty of power and a crisp, medium-fast to fast for glass action.  Tip sensitivity favours river applications including all normal sizes of dry fly, duo rigs, nymphs up to around 3-4mm tungsten bead.  Added mid and butt power so will also cast smaller streamers and lures well.

Available colours: ice and olive translucent unsanded finish.   Ferrules are tip-over-butt (not spigots).
