Taniwha TSH 805 8' #5 ghost grey S-glass fly rod SALE now £175 ex VAT $0.00

Taniwha TSH 805 8' #5 ghost grey S-glass fly rod (4-piece)

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

The blank action is fast-medium to fast for glass 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 my requirements through several prototype testing stages. They are made for us 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 surprisingly reasonable price for this quality.

Taniwha TSH TSH 805 8' #5 model description 
A river 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. 

Superb quality blank and components at a great price. Taniwha Rodworks exclusive. These are semi-custom rods, pre-wrapped and partly pre- assembled.  This keeps the price very reasonable but also means that choices are limited to reel seats and available agate guides.  A few days are needed to fit your choice of reel seat before shipping.
