Profile EVO Blank

£435.00

A close cousin to Profile GT and built on identical mandrel tooling. This iteration of Profile design concept has a full carbon tip which is reactive, positive and has excellent bite indication.

The tip has an innovative resin matrix and composite fibre design that exploits the best of the lightness and power to weight ratio a carbon fibre tip can deliver. The composite ply architecture gives an edge to distance aspirations when conditions become testing. There is depth and breadth in the design and the use of carefully selected materials reflects the designer’s extensive knowledge and experience in long range casting, with very low diameter rods.

Description

A close cousin to Profile GT and built on identical mandrel tooling. This iteration of Profile design concept has a full carbon tip which is reactive, positive and has excellent bite indication.

The tip has an innovative resin matrix and composite fibre design that exploits the best of the lightness and power to weight ratio a carbon fibre tip can deliver. The composite ply architecture gives an edge to distance aspirations when conditions become testing. There is depth and breadth in the design and the use of carefully selected materials reflects the designer’s extensive knowledge and experience in long range casting, with very low diameter rods.

The use of custom-made high tenacity carbon fibre with high modulus of elasticity, is an important ingredient in the ongoing success of this rod.
