We are all painfully aware of just how brittle graphite can be, especially when used in a 5-ounce fly rod. REDINGTON decided to change the way we look at graphite by taking a chapter from the space program and incorporating it into its new Nano Titanium series rods.
By using this new technology in its rod building, Redington created some of the fastest, lightest rods around. The process actually restructures pure graphite resin at the molecular level, thereby adding strength and removing weight. The process also leaves a gray-black matte finish that will outlast many lacquered finishes and results in a rod capable of increasing not only distance but also casting accuracy.
Currently the Nano Titanium series is available in 4- to 12-weight rods. All are three-piece 9-footers, and even the largest weighs less than 5 ounces. The NTi rods feature single-foot titanium guides and a Nano Titanium insert reel seat and retail for $625.
