Primal Fly Rods is the latest brand to come from Manic Tackle’s house of brands. They deliver a high premium performance and finish quality in a customised range designed for NZ and Australian anglers at an affordable price.
This rod range is intended to make a fantastic upgrade option for anglers who are looking to make the next step up having got into fly fishing with an entry level package.
For those who enjoy the technology aspect of fly rods – At the heart of all Primal rods is a helical core of Nano matrix prepreg. In simple terms the first layer at the core of the fly rods are off-axis fibres that give the rods incredible hoop strength as well as torsional
stability. This makes the rods not only strong but means they cast a very smooth tight loop with very little tip bounce and exceptional tracking. Less sideways movement of the rod blank while casting means more accurate, smoother casting.
Another structural theme built into their reels: integrated counterbalance. Why hang a piece of hardware on a spool if there’s a simpler way? But simple isn’t always easier. Their earliest spools required a fair amount of trial and error to build the precise bias into the spool to counter the weight of the spin knob. For these guys, the elegance of eliminating a component and then using the resultant asymmetry as part of the design made all the effort worth it. This simple, logical, but often difficult feature became essential to the personality of their reels.
