Product Information

Over the last few years, Switch rods have gained a popularity WHY? well, versatility and ease of use are the key features when it comes to Switch rods, whether single hand overhead casting or double handed Spey is the order of the day these rods effortlessly hit the mark. The extra length gives superior control over the fly line whilst also offering a buffer when using lighter lines.the Nano-Helix IM12  Switch rod is lightweight, offer great performance and allow you to try out this great new technique without breaking the bank. 

Single and two handed rods are designed and optimized for today’s new line tapers and casting styles. These rods transfer power smoothly and are incredibly stable when changing directions or applying forward stroke power. They cast flatter, tighter loops that deliver greater distance and accuracy.Components are top of the line, with new grips shaped from Super grade cork, Alu reel seats with self-aligning slide hoods, and state of the art  stripping guides The Discovery NANO Fly fishing rods are the best rods we have ever produced. They are beautifully balanced, lightweight with crisp clean actions that provide both superb casting and fish playing characteristics. They are also phenomenally strong thanks to the revolutionary nature of the new  Silica NANO material. carbon fiber held together with a resin impregnated with silica nano spheres. This technology is relatively new and proven it produces a material that is significantly stronger and lighter than traditional carbon fiber.

Our Discovery NANO Fly Rods are one of the first fly rods to take advantage of the groundbreaking NANO technology in Australia the most recent evolution in fly rod innovation, uses new materials combined with pioneering manufacturing methods and processes. This technology incorporates an optimized ratio of proprietary resin to high modulus grade carbon fiber.
NANO  technology is never more appreciated than when traveling with a single fly rod - the improved impact resistance and strength gives you that you a rod that will withstand the worst possible punishment.

Carbon fibers are just that, long thin lightweight strands of carbon that need to be converted into a cloth in order to turn them into a fishing rod.
When making fly rods, each long strand of carbon fiber needs to be held together with a reinforced resin system that provides strength and impact resistance.
This carbon cloth is then wrapped around a mandrel to form the blank and subsequently baked at high temperature, melting the resin to create a full strength fishing rod.

What is Carbon Nanotube Technology?
Applying Carbon Nanotube, or CNT technology creates a stronger resin distribution system, this helps eliminate any weakness in the blank to create rods with significantly increased strength and improved impact resistance, without adding any significant weight to the blank.
The resulting rods are light, smooth and ultra strong - a 60% increase in flexural strength and a 30% increase in impact resistance - without any effect on the superb casting performance you come to expect from all our fly rods
Because the material is stronger, and less material is required and thus a rod can be lighter than an equivalent carbon fiber model. Weight savings of up to 30% are possible.There are two key advantages provided by silica nanospheres. First is the even distribution of the nanospheres throughout the resin providing equality of strength throughout the blank leading to crisp and clean rod actions. The second advantage is that silica nanospheres resist compression forces better than any other known material. This results in a fishing rod that is at least 60% stronger than a standard carbon fiber rod without interfering with the action. The improved compression characteristic also greatly improves impact resistance and durability.

The latest construction methods include a process that precisely aligns and positions carbon fiber materials to exacting tolerances for the greatest blank strength, delivering extremely efficient energy transfer throughout the shaft. Using state of the art high Compression Molding process, carbon fibers are compacted for optimum density and precise alignment while simultaneously fusing the 30% percent lighter all-carbon fiber inner core.

Discovery NANO  rod becomes a true extension of the angler’s arm, It offers a more fluid transmission of energy from the arm to the fly. The eye sees the cast it wants to make and is translated to the hand through the rod instantaneously.”
The fast-action Discovery NANO rod family has intended for all fishing conditions thanks to a list of high-end features.
