ANOMALY (DEFINITION):SOMETHING THAT DEVIATES FROM WHAT IS STANDARD, NORMAL, OR EXPECTED

You have never felt anything like the Anomaly Z. Being one of the first companies to experiment with graphene has given us the ability to build rods that are lighter and stronger than anything ever before. Graphene allows us to build a 5wt rod with lower taper power and lightning speed recovery, yet weighing less than 2.69oz! The swing weight is so light a 5wt feels more like a light line 4wt. Our highly reviewed and beloved Anomaly taper has been refined and perfected with the Anomaly Z. The medium-fast taper has the same level of power yet greater accuracy at every distance when compared to the original Anomaly. The Anomaly Z is leap a forward in blank technology, performance, and action.

ACTION - The Anomaly Z is a fast/medium-fast action rod with an ultra-fast recovery speed.

Technology

GRAPHENE

Graphene was discovered in 2004 by a researcher at the University of Manchester. The discovery won the researcher a Nobel Prize in physics. Graphene is a carbon product that is a single molecule thick, arranged in a honeycomb pattern. Graphene is an innovative material because it is amazingly light in mass and stronger than diamond. It is 100X stronger than steel of the equivalent mass. Graphene is revolutionary in the world of fly rods. It allows us to build a blank that is lighter and significantly stronger. This is breakthrough technology.

THE HARDWARE

A revolutionary blank requires top of the line hardware. The Anomaly Z uses the new Cericoil stripping guides. Cericoil guides are extremely durable and made with lightweight titanium. The remaining guides are single foot REC recoil titanium guides. These guides bend without breaking and also act as tiny shock absorbers to eliminate excess rod vibrations.

CRAFTSMANSHIP

Production rods aren't always known for their quality in craftsmanship. Single coat epoxies are fast and cost efficient, but leave the blank with heavy, bubbly wraps that have no place on a top quality rod. The Anomaly Z is constructed with new top of the line materials and quality centric techniques that keep wraps light, flat, and beautiful!
