    Default New models update

    Hi All

    Just a quick update on new models recently finished or development models near completion.

    9' #5 Tachyon X.
    As some will know I now try to compete in the BFCC distance casting events and the event I like the most is the 5wt class. To that end I have developed a distance casting rod called the Tachyon X. Seems to be working pretty well.

    10' #5 Neutrino.
    My previous 10' 4/5wt Neutrino has now been beefed up a little to make it a true 5wt. I love this rod fishing dries from a boat.

    9'6"#6 Neutrino.
    After the popularity of the 9'6" #7 Tachyon (which I also use at the BFCC meets) I have been working on a 9'6" #6 Neutrino. Should be a great all rounder and I'll be putting them on my site next week hopefully as long as the newest prototype is where I want it to be.

    9' #8 Tachyon.
    Designing this as a SWFF rod. Awaiting the latest proto from the factory. Fingers crossed.

    Just a quick update on the 2 models I've been working on and waiting for the latest protos from the factory.

    The 9' #8 is good to go as is the 9'6" #6. The #8 is fast actioned and powerful. However get a decent critter on the end and the blank will give you a full bend to play the fish with.

    The 9'6" #6 is a nice mid to tip rod. Should be popular as an all rounder.

    Building the demos up now.

    If you want to try either you know where I am.
