Buy Carbon Fiber Rods

A carbon fiber rod is not necessarily better than a glass fiber rod; the two fibers have different properties, with their own trade offs.Carbon fiber is less flexible (stiffer) than glass fiber and more brittle and prone to breakage when misused, while carbon fiber allows for longer and faster rods. Carbon fiber also allows for a smaller diameter rod that is more sensitive than a glass fiber rod.

A carbon fiber rod is also much lighter than a glass fiber rod allowing for longer days of fishing.Each has its purpose in the fishing industry and both improve an anglers chances of being successful when the blanks are used for the right purposes.

Composite carbon tubes and carbon rods are made by pulling carbon fibers through a resin (vinylester or epoxy) bath and a series of dies and ovens to create composites rods or tubes with all fibers oriented in one direction, longitudinally. Strong, durable, and lightweight, carbon rods and tubes are an ideal material for structural components. Our customers use carbon fiber rods and carbon fiber tubes in aerospace applications, cargo and surveillance blimps, aircraft wing spars, as rollers and other structural pieces in industrial machinery, in guitar necks, as push rods and tail booms in model airplanes and helicopters, and much more.

It is the new version of carbon fiber rod with more smooth surface. It fits 15mm rod clamp but its surface is not shining any more because we have redesigned it based on some customers' advice. The carbon fiber rods are much lighter than stainless steel rods, but carbon fiber rods are incredibly rigid and durable.

Introduction: Radiotherapy (RT) is frequently applied as an adjuvant therapy during spinal tumors treatment. Metallic implants can interfere with RT planning and execution, as it is known that metallic implants produce a backscattering effect that can limit RT accuracy and their presence can be associated with unwanted dose increase. PEEK/carbon fiber implants are designed to reduce these problems but their application in the cervical spine is limited, due to the reduced number and types of implants, the screw dimensions and the absence of lateral mass screws. We propose a hybrid system made of carbon rods and screws coupled with subliminal polyester bands with titanium clamps. We designed this hybrid construct to enclose the cervical region in the area of instrumentation without limiting the application of postoperative radiotherapy.

Discussion and conclusions: Hybrid implants made of composite PEEK/carbon fiber screws and rods and sublaminar bands are a helpful solution for spinal reconstruction in the cervical and cervico-thoracic regions after spine tumor surgery. The implants do not produce artifacts at postoperative images, easing the planning and execution of postoperative radiotherapy.

Trika rods combine a proprietary carbon-weave blank, custom carbon reel seat and a hollow carbon handle to create an echo chamber for amplified vibration. The result is a more sensitive, lightweight and strong fishing rod.

Our multi directional weave process is the rebirth of the fishing rod industry. This proprietary design makes our rods twice as sensitive, lighter, and casts further than the competition.

At Trika we only use the highest quality aerospace grade carbon fiber. This material process has never been used in the fishing rod industry. The result is an extremely sensitive, strong, yet lightweight rod with flex in the right places that has given an advantage to our anglers.

LOVE YOUR RODSJust like any other part of your car, take care and show your rods some love. Heim joints are prone to weathering in unhappy conditions so periodically clean your rods and place anti-seize on the joint threads. You'll find that they will last a long time

Most of the credit for spectacularly growing popularity of fishing is given to manufacturers who produce cheaper, lighter, stronger rods each season. Best quality refers to Japanese materials and equipment. As far as design and engineering are concerned the Japanese technology is still the best in the world by far. Graphite Carbon Fiber is manufactured in Japan by Toray Industries, Inc, that is currently the world's largest producer of carbon fiber and Japan's largest producer of synthetic fiber.

Bamboo rods are unique and excellent, they vary most in price, as they run from inexpensive to quite pricey. Benefits to bamboo fishing rods are plenty. They're lightweight, water resistant and durable. Tonkin Cane, recommended to be one of the strongest species of the bamboos due to its high density of fibres, is popular with bamboo rod makers because of its straightness, well spaced nodes, flexibility and strength. Calcutta bamboo is considered even better, but it's much harder to find. Tonkin bamboo comes from the the banks of the Sui River in China. The bamboo cane is cut into strips and heated. The heated, dried strips of bamboo are then shaved down to form angles that, when matched, form a hexagon. Clamps hold the fishing pole together and it is again dried with a heater. After drying, the new fishing rod is glued together and held with clamps until the glue dries. The final step involves sanding the surface and placing the eyelets that hold the fishing line and then the fishing reel. Regardless of the bamboo used, it takes approximately 80 to 100 hours to build one bamboo very expensive (the craftsmanship involved) fishing pole. Madake - is one of the most common bamboos in Japan. It is grown in the south of the Tohoku region (Northern Japan). It is 10-20 meters tall, 5-15 centimeters in diameter. The bamboo shoot is edible and more bitter than other species. It is used in the tip section of Hera rods. Two-four pieces are split from the bottom section of the bamboo and are bound and glued and then shaved in a circle. The highest grade is not bound; it is made from 1 piece, thus, this bamboo is the strongest. Most of the materials used for fishing rods are of the highest grade bamboo. One bamboo can be shared with other rod builders because Hera rod builders use the part of the bamboo 6 feet from the ground and other use the section just above that part. The 3 month varnish process or (Urushi lacquer finish) comes from the ancient (dates back to 7000 B.C.) Natural Varnish Tree "Rhus verniciflua". Concerning the lacquer, when fully cured it's stronger than urethane. It creates a very tough membrane on the surface of the bamboo. Because it is very thin, no cracking occurs when the bamboo bends. Also, the lacquer forms a better molecular bond with the bamboo, better than you think is possible. The traditional wiping technique used in Japan brings out the beauty of the natural material. Unlike the lacquer ware (bowls and dishes) that uses many thick coats of lacquer and iron hydroxide to make it black, for bamboo rods a very thin coat is used and then wiped to remove excess. These very thin coats are repeated many times over 3 months and the result is a thin coat that is flexible and waterproof, but heat resistant and very durable. Because urushi lacquer does not use organic solvents, it will not melt down like urethane when exposed to high temperatures. When this process is completed it produces a finish like glass. Bamboo is definitely not as strong as graphite when made into a fishing rod, but is much lighter and more flexible. Japanese bamboo rods need a lot more care and attention than graphite; at the least, a trip back to its maker at least once a year to be waxed and re-straightened.

Fiberglass rods are usually inexpensive and typically geared towards beginners. These rods need little maintenance, have an average weight and a good all-around rod strength and are not easy to break.

  • Carbon fibers are classified by the tensile modulus of the fiber. Tensile modulus is a measure of how much pulling force a certain diameter, in other words how much load per square inch of cross section ("stress") the material can tolerate before breaking. The English unit of measurement is pounds of force per square inch of cross-sectional area, or psi. Carbon fibers classified as "low modulus" have a tensile modulus below 34.8 million psi (240 million kPa). Other classifications, in ascending order of tensile modulus, include "standard modulus," "intermediate modulus," "high modulus," and "ultrahigh modulus." Ultrahigh modulus carbon fibers have a tensile modulus of 72.5-145.0 million psi (500 million-1.0 billion kPa). As a comparison, steel has a tensile modulus of about 29 million psi (200 million kPa). Thus, the strongest carbon fiber is about five times stronger than steel.The term graphite fiber refers to certain ultrahigh modulus fibers made from petroleum pitch. These fibers have an internal structure that closely approximates the three-dimensional crystal alignment that is characteristic of a pure form of carbon known as graphite. Modulus is a measure of stiffness, how far the material stretches for a given stress. Modulus is the ratio (espressed in millions of psi, "pounds per square inch", a measure of a force on an area) between stiffness and weight of the graphite blank. The higher the modulus, the more energy the rod can store and release. The energy is a way of saying the speed and the power of the rod. Think of a swimmer on a diving board and try to imagine to variate the properties of the jumping board and you will see what it is. Some also simply by saying that modulus is resistance to flex and the higher the modulus the stiffer the rod. Beware, though, the higher the modulus, the more expensive is the blank and also more brittle the rod after an impact. There are many types of carbon fibers: IM6, M8, M55, M40, M40J, M46J, T300, HR40, and more. Each have their own properties: which are the modulus and the strength. Good fishing rods have generally speaking a high modulus, a high strength, and intermediate percentage of fibres.The modulus is given as force per unit area, for a material, so saying 33 million modulus or 33 Msi means 33 million pounds per square inch of material.High-modulus, type HM (modulus between 350-450Gpa).

  • Intermediate-modulus, type IM (modulus between 200-350Gpa).

  • Low modulus, high-tensile, type HT (modulus 3Gpa)

  • Superhigh-tensile, type SHT (tensile strength > 4.5Gpa).

  • The less a material will bend before it begins to fail the higher the modulus. High modulus materials can be used to make soft rods, and conversely, low modulus material can be designed into making stiff rods.The higher the modulus of graphite, the higher the stiffness, the lower the strength. A 57 million modulus graphite rod will be lighter and stiffer (therefore more brittle) than a rod rated at 44 million modulus.IM 6 graphite is approx. 33 million modulus

  • IM7 graphite is approx. 44 million modulus

  • IM8 graphite is approx. 51 million modulus

The higher the modulus, the more expensive the rod will be. IM 7 graphite offers a nice compromise being light, sensitive and not overly expensive. Don't get too caught up with the modulus rating. Rod mfrs started pumping those figures out to the public years ago in an initially successful effort to con us into thinking that "higher modulus"="more sensitive"="better".Just because a higher modulus graphite fiber itself may be lighter does not mean that the finished rod (or blank) will be lighter or better. The graphite fiber must be bonded with a resin (weight) and is typically given a glossy finish (more weight). This doesn't even take into account a much more important factor: rod/blank design & taper.Just go put some rods in your hand. String them up, if possible, for a test drive. See what feels good to YOU, because you're the one that's got to fish it. 041b061a72
