Designed and developed for fisheries on tuna hunting with lures (Design Mike Thorson), that blank combines a real capacity to launch and conduct small lures, and a reserve of sufficient power to fight 50 kilos Tunas and more,
After defining and validating the specification, it took a year of prototyping and 3 versions to get this product
When Rodhouse first contacted me you requested a very unique rod blank. It had to have a light weight tip action to throw live bait for Tuna, but must be able to handle fish up to 100lbs. or so. Needless to say this was a challenge from a design standpoint! Having a tip area light enough for live bait with not much weight, but then have the blank handle very large fish is quite a challenge!
I looked at our current blank line up to see if I had anything remotely close to that type of action. We did not, but it did give me a baseline to start with. The other unique thing you requested was that the handle area be .750’ in OD, and feature a ferrule for the tip to fit into(not over) We call this a tip into butt ferrule design. By making the butt smaller, plus making the tip fit into the butt meant I could not use the OD of the blank to provide stiffness( you can get stiffness 3 ways, blank OD, wall thickness and material type.)
I knew I would have to incorporate at least 3 different types of material, plus use modulus positioning to achieve the desired action and strength. I chose to make the butt section out of 24 ton graphite with a special reinforcement at the tip of the butt section that runs 90 degrees around the ferrule region (about 4 inches) The reinforcement prevents the tip of the butt section from splitting under load. Now for the tip section: I chose to make it out of three different materials. The main pattern is e glass, then 24 ton graphite, plus 30 ton graphite. E glass is very strong and allowed me to achieve the light tip action. I then added both 24 & 30 ton graphite to provide the lifting power you needed to handle large Tuna etc. The tip section of this blank was pretty small in diameter so I had to use more 24 & 30 ton graphite than normal to get the power up there for big fish.
I made the first proto type for you and it needed more lifting power, so on the other attempt I added a lot more 30 ton graphite(high modulus) to get more lifting power. I had to keep the break strength as high as possible so the blending percentages of the 3 materials had to be perfect. I can honestly say this was one of the most interesting blank designs I have ever attempted. Without the great collaboration from Rodhouse it would not have been possible.
