Default Allen Fly Fishing - Nano Ti Rod and Blank Series Release

The Release of our Nano Ti Rod Series and Blanks

For those that follow my products on the board. For the most part I list updates on my thread in the Classifieds. However, this post is also fitting here.



"Our new series (Nano Ti) of rods utilizes the latest in technological development. One of the lightest rods on the market, at just 2.6 oz. in a #5 weight, it feels like a feather and casts great. We have teamed with a renowned carbon fiber manufacturer to develop a resin system that allows the impregnation of nano titanium particles into the resin/carbon matrix. This prevents "micro cracking" and allows us to achieve lighter weight without compromising breakage or flex in the rods.

I had help over the last several months by a friend of mine. Developed and designed by a former CEO of a well known golf shaft manufacturer. We have worked to develop this new series of rods that deliver the lightest weight, the latest in technology and performance at an affordable price."


Here is my final design on the Nano Ti Series.

1. Reel Seat - Gold Anodized AL. The font will be smaller on "Allen"
2. Guides - Snake Guides **** I might change to single foot guides to reduce the weight. Seems it’s 50/50 on what people like.
3. The logo size will be reduced.
4. Med to Fast Action
5. Blank Color - Green

The rod weight is 2.65 oz in the 5wt. I have made a limited production run that will be ready soon of 5pcs of each weight. I also have Blanks for rod builders as well.

Sizes - 4wt, 5wt, 6wt, 7wt, 8wt, 9wt (all 9', 4pc rods)

Pricing

RODS

Retail: Not sure yet. (Those that have fished my demo rods throughout the last several months say it compares to all the high end rods from other mfgs)

NAFFF - $180.00 (This comes with a Tube and Sock)


BLANKS

NAFFF - $90.00 (This includes an extra tip)


Warranty - Same as my reels. If it needs fixed, I'll fix it. If I can't, I'll replace it. The warranty on this Series is lifetime. We have done many tests on the flex to find the weak spots and have them all corrected in the last several months. There has been over 500 blanks tested throughout the last serveral months and I would not release this rod untill I was 100% happy with the durability of this series. I am positive those that fish this rod will be happy with its performance.
