What Makes Graphite USA the Best Choice?

GRAPHITE-USA's proprietary "Dual Helix" ply construction produces a rod blank that has outstanding resistance to both crushing and twisting when compared to the competition. The weight & sensitivity of the GUSA blanks will be comparable with a G-Loomis GL4 but yet offer unmatched strength & durability. Breakage of these blanks is unheard of due to the Dual Helix construction.

GRAPHITE-USA's unique construction technique, adapted from our experience in aerospace activities, is superior to the conventional rod blank roll-wrap manufacturing process adopted years ago from the textile industry.

GRAPHITE-USA's two advantages are readily apparent.

GRAPHITE USA's Dual Helix structure keeps the rod round when heavily loaded during casting or fighting a hooked fish. When unconventional blanks are subjected to heavy bending loads, they have a natural tendency to start to go oval because they lack helical reinforcement designed to resist these loads.
A rod that starts to ovalize is no longer as stiff as it was when round and will fail by buckling if the line pressure is not backed off. This problem does not occur with GRAPHITE-USA's Dual Helix reinforced blanks. In addition to the phenomenal bending strength,the Dual Helix construction adds extraordinary crush and nick resistance, making GRAPHITE USA's blanks the most durable on the market today.

GRAPHITE-USA's second major advantage is the outstanding resistance to twist imparted to the blank thru the Dual Helix design. When casting here are sidewise loads introduced when the fly line is moved out of the fore and aft vertical plane by winds or casting actions. These side loads during fore and aft casts will twist the guides of a rod that does not have Dual Helix resistance to twist. This twisting deflection is not recovered in the fore and aft casting stroke as casting energy but is lost. Torque loads from twisting rods account for much of the casting arm discomfort and lack of precise fly line directional control.

All GUSA blanks are available in colors - Hunter Green, Cobalt Blue & Red for $15 additional. Call to ordered colored blanks or add to the comments section of the order form.
