Synonymous with performance, WAR HOUND rods are designed to provide anglers with sensitive and responsive rods that deliver incredible distance and casting accuracy. It is through a careful choice of components that our rods make it possible to efficiently and easily transfer more energy and sensitivity through the strand, into the angler's hand.
CARBON FIBER MONOCOQUE HANDLE
WAR HOUND rods combine a hollow carbon monocoque handle and a Fuji reel seat to achieve up to 25% more sensitivity than traditional handle designs. In addition to ensuring superior lightness, the monocoque handles ensure direct contact with the core of the rod strand, transmitting the finest vibrations of the lure or bite directly into the palm of the angler.
IM9-40T CARBON FIBER CONSTRUCTION
The IM rating indicates that the rod is lighter and stiffer than a rod with a lower IM rating. IM6 is the general "standard" for a flexible rod, but slightly heavier. Our IM9 strand gives the rod more lightness and rigidity. The higher the tonnage (T) of graphite, the stiffer the graphite and the more vibrations are transmitted through the fishing rod. Our 40T (tonne) rod is more durable than 50 or 60 ton rods, yet still very light and sensitive, especially when used with braided line. Unlike traditional carbon braiding techniques, the carbon braiding used is reversed inside and out, which strengthens and ensures full rod power.
