What a beautiful looking rod! I’m really liking the hot orange whippings that many are choosing for the instructor rods. Douglas’ first instructor rod – the “Goose” – had Racing Green whippings, so this will be an excellent contrast.
As you can see this is our new HT7 rod, Instructor version with Torzite Titanium rings. The Torzites add an extra 100USD to the finished price but I think are most certainly worth fitting on the HT7 and above.
I’m excited to hear new of the Goose II landing in Canada. 🙂
I had a very nice email from Andy last night on his recently acquired HT4. I don’t normally publish these emails, Ashly asked me why not, and I couldn’t think of a good reason, so here is what Andy wrote:
Mate, I just got back from the water casting and fishing the HT4 for the first time. And, well, how do I say this. Let’s see:
Whatever wicked and absolute unreal magic it is, that you put into making this rod, keep doing it.
It’s amazing, it’s beautiful, it’s perfect.
I am far from being an expert when it comes to the huge variety of rods on the market these days. But I have cast and fished quite a few and I can say without any doubt, that this is the best I have ever had my hands on. And it’s mine! I own several other rods. They’re all shit now. So thanks for that!
It feels lovely. Light but strong. Smooth without any stiffness. Sensitive without being wobbly. Powerful with, at any moment, just the exact right amount of feeling. And the precision this thing allows me in my casting is insane.
I lack the right terminology to describe it all. But Paul, it’s simple: I love the HT4. It’s already, my new favourite rod. By a long haul.
🙂 🙂 🙂 That’s awesome and always makes me really happy to get emails like this. Thank you Andy!!!
