Default Dorber New UltraWave rod

Click the image to open in full size. This rod is built on Dorber's new UltraWave blank, notice the blank is not straight. Their production rod comes with a 30 day money back guarantee. They are the greatest fly rod I have ever cast or fished.

Interesting concept. It won't go anywhere because of that though. The fly fishing world isn't ready for a factory curved rod.
It'll be an interesting ride. Will it fly or will it sink? I'd like to give it a test drive.

Although I strive to present an objective nature and avoid negative prose, I must confess that I am not a big fan of reinventing the wheel. I have not been a professional in this game at all but I hold an honorary doctorate degree in the 'If it ain't broke, don't fix it' discipline.

Yes, I do have a commercial interest in the rods, I am allowed to build customs on their blanks, which will be very few now that I am retired. However, I fished with them and formed my opinion of them long before I was granted permission to build on their blanks.

HardyReels,
Without invention and creative ideas, the fly rods would still be an ash tree sapling with no reel (which you seem so fond of), no reel seat, no guides, no metal or fiberglass or graphite blanks. The line would not shark skin. Now, if you read and find out what true traditionalist really were, you would find that they were always looking for new inventive ideas. That is why fly fishing has changed so much since it beginning. You are entitled to you opinion though. For me, I would rather lead rather than follow, be progressive instead of standing still. I would rather inspire and promote invention and not try to stifle or impede it.

These rod are not going to fail, they fish better than a straight rod in my opinion and several others, and I have fished thousands of straight ones. The anglers of Europe are definitely excited about them, and as a group, they are very receptive to advancements in fishing.

The UltraWave is a Thoroughbred in a field of ponies. Straight blank manufactures are a Giant Step behind and Dorber is leading by a mile. UltraWave rods are the greatest advancement in fishing since snake guides.

My apologies if my rather offhanded remarks were offensive at all. Rather than debate my tastes in tackle, I would invite you to become a business member for the promotion of this product.

You are obviously a leader with a greater range of knowledge than I, and I encourage you to do so.

Regards,

Ard Stetts

HardyReel,
Your post did not offend me at all. I just thought that if I enlightened you of the history of the inventive nature of our predecessors you might soften your attitude toward the UltraWave rod and other inventions.

We should all welcome inventive idea, and it doesn't matter if they are right or wrong, because they make us think and re-consider what we have done in fly fishing.

Interesting concept. Not my cup of tea though. I don't feel that casting is a limiting factor in freshwater. May be interesting to see what it
helps as far as casting in salt from the surf.
