Welp, that's the secret to all this isn't it. Our team encapsulates a lifetime of rod blank design and building, aerospace and material consultants, lifelong fishermen and extremely detail-oriented tradesmen. We played with unidirectional fibers, we wrapped them in different directions, angles and layers. We considered terms like Helix, triflex and quad-core, (it's all good stuff). We had the ability to kick dust in our resin and call it nanotechnology — pass. We decided to work outside the box with material manufacturers to create custom prepreg materials consisting of fibers and resins laid out to our specific specifications. ( I know, I know, typical high level rod manufacturer sales tactic bullshit). The results are in, and now available to everyone. If you want to see what Thrasher's are made of, watch our rod testing videos. If you want to know what makes them the best rods on the market, sorry, that's some top-secret shit. Made in the USA.
