Where we have applied bias technology to the advantage
of the Basia rod performance, we have mirrored this blank evolution in
the shape of the Longbow.
Developed early in 2016 they truly excelled in field
testing. The report from Danny read “Just hit the clip at 160 yards with
a 4oz lead on the prototype 3.75 x45 Longbow. I could give it more as
the rod will take it. They feel light, crisp and powerful; well done!”
In order to harness high ‘potential energy’ for
casting we utilised butt diameter as well as material to deliver
loading. However the medium taper sees the Longbow release rapidly but
with less eye watering speed of the Basia. This recovery is enhanced too
by the weight saving from the minima 4 guides.
In addition the four test curves at 12’ we also offer
a Floater Special, a Spod and Spod n marker model.
