Redefining Fly Rod Technology Nano-Helix fishing rods and blanks are made of exclusive Nano-helix technology.

Following on from the River to Reef  Saltwater fly rod we have developed the 9ft  5/6 to add to the family 

That can be used with a 5 or 6wt fly line, giving the angler the option to use 1 rod for Rivers and stream fly fishing, the rod will be just as responsive casting a size 2 to a 22 hook saving the angler many hundreds of dollars on not having to have two rods,this development has come about with the use of Nanospheres and Helix combination. A-helix technology which is different to normal standard scrim process. Standard scrim process uses fibreglass or carbon scrim to give the blanks a hoop strength, but our a-helix technology uses the carbon spiral to support the hoop strength of the blanks. a single carbon spiral(helical or helix) is at the core of the blank, this type of the structure is regarded the most effective way of maintaining cross-section stability during bending, so our carbon helix core will minimize cross-sectional deformation during loading improving power and response.

Using NANO materials combined with the helix technology to make the blanks stronger as well as ensuring reduced deformation when they are bent using the spiral carbon core to make the blanks the tip section will not be as straight as the scrim process blanks especially on the fine tips. 
Small things make a big difference Nano carbon technology is being considered the best thing since carbon fly rods began.

Nanocarbon technology allows for superbly balanced, lightweight rods with crisp clean actions that provide both superb casting and fish playing characteristics. They are also much stronger thanks to the revolutionary nature of the new Silica Nanomaterial

How has this improved rods?
The key is the resin used to make the rods. The way rods are made has changed little, the difference is the particles in the resin are much smaller and less prone to compression.
When constructing a carbon fly rod. Sheets of lightweight carbon cloth impregnated with resin are wrapped around a mandrel to form the blank and then baked at high temperature, melting the resin to create a full-strength fly rod.
Why is Nano resin different. Because the particles are smaller(tiny round silica particles less than a nanometer—one billionth of a meter—in diameter) they can fit into the small gaps within the carbon weave. Nano resins supersede what was previously used creating a stronger resin distribution system, this helps eliminate any weakness in the blank to create rods with increased strength and improved impact resistance, without adding any significant weight to the blank.
Because the resulting material is stronger, and less material is required to produce a similar strength, a rod can be lighter than an equivalent carbon fibre model. Weight savings of up to 30% are possible. There are two key advantages provided by silica nanospheres.


1, The even distribution of the nanospheres throughout the resin providing equality of strength throughout the blank leading to crisp and clean rod actions.
2, The 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 fibre rod without interfering with the action. The improved compression characteristic also greatly improves impact resistance and durability.
How else has technology improved our rods?
The latest construction methods include a process that precisely aligns and positions carbon fibre 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 fibres are compacted for optimum density and precise alignment while simultaneously fusing the 30% per cent lighter all-carbon fibre inner core. This new technology is included in all our top-end rods.


Cigar handle with extra long-life durable cork-mix 
Natural Finish cosmetics, creating a natural finish blank requires exacting tolerances, more care, and shows off the beauty of graphite. natural finish is all about making your rod lighter, more durable and better performing the Natural Finish is all about making your rod lighter, more durable, and outstanding performance.
Most other rods on the shelf are run through a belt sander, tearing away the outside power fibres of the blank and introducing variance. Inadvertent flat spotting during the sanding process will weaken a blank, and blanks are designed with a margin of error to accommodate for over sanding. After the blank is sanded, glossy paint is applied to add shelf appeal. Natural finish blanks aren't subjected to the rip through the sanding belt A natural finish blank is built to exacting tolerances. combined with Nano Helix advanced resin systems permeate the blank, leaving a durable finish that will stand up to years of abuse on those big saltwater critters

River to stream Nano Helix

Purchased this rod a few years ago now and can’t rate it highly enough , cast great , very accurate with surprising power reducing false casts , very durable and tough something about the natural finish that allows it to take the bumps and scrapes , great local service, if your after a rod that won’t break you bank balance give it a go you won’t be disappointed ????
