Premium S-glass 8'3" #6 fly rod blank $108.69

Taniwha TSH 836  8'3" #5/6 S-helix S-glass fly rod blanks, 4-piece, ice unsanded translucent blank.  

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 836 8'3" #6, 4-piece model description

A fine #6 all-rounder that also casts well with a punchy or long belly #5, a better choice for heavier nymphs and duo rigs than the 8'#5, but will still present a dry fly nicely.  Similar flex profile with a stronger tip and added power reserves compared to the #5.  Perfect lure tosser and sink tip streamer rod for trout. Ample power for lighter inshore saltwater use and carp dry fly.

 Ferrules are tip-over-butt (not spigots).
