Premium S-glass 8'0 #8/9 fly rod blank $113.40

Generation 2 Taniwha TSH 809 8'" #8/9 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 809 8'" #8/9,  4-piece model description

A beast tamer with huge lifting power, strong tip and a faster tip action. The TSH 809 is recommended for saltwater use, bass, carp and light pike fishing, also suitable for big streamer monster trout fishing and sinking or Hi-D sink tip lines. Lengths below 9' reduce swing weight and give you improved leverage against strong fish, so may also suit boat or kayak anglers salt or freshwater.

Available colour:  Ice, sanded translucent.   Ferrules are tip-over-butt (not spigots).
