Basalt fibre is similar to carbon fibre and fibreglass but better physicomechanical properties than fibreglass and it is significantly cheaper than carbon fibre. It has a high elastic modulus, resulting in excellent specific tenacity, three times that of steel. It is used as a fireproof textile in the aerospace and automotive industries and we pleased to announce it is now being used as a composite in the new Saltz Series rods.
The Basalt fibre is extremely light, yet very strong giving these rods light tips but a lot of low down power. This allows the angler to feel sensitive bites but have the power to stop large fish. These rods will come in a series of Surf, Boat and Spin series models. The rods feature the new Basalt fibre blank technology, Deluxe Reel Seats, Under and Overbound Guides, Shaped Grips, Shaped Butt Caps and Wood Sand Spikes on all Surf Models.
