5.0 average, based on 3 reviews

Product Information

The Discovery  NANO Fly Rod  is a high performance, fast action rod, designed specifically for tackling hard fighting saltwater species such as Bonefish, Tarpon and Permit. We have pushed our NANO technology to the absolute limit and the end result is staggering in both performance and durability."THE BIGGEST DEVELOPMENT SINCE CARBON FIBRES  ITSELF"  This is The MOTHER of all 8 and 10 weights

Armed with  this versatile 8 and 10 weight fly rod you will feel at home in both fresh and to a whole host of saltwater  species, this rod will take you just about anywhere.  Weighing in at a feathery 119gms the combination of lightweight,sensitivity,and strength in this 8-weight package is something you just have to cast to believe.this rod is so light – even the scrawniest arms will be able to launch big flies through heavy winds all day long
Discovery NANO Rod is smooth and precise with an intentionally forgiving ‘sweet spot’ that complements widely diverse casting styles,This helps the angler make a full range of close-in and long distance casts that hit the mark with equal ease. Being able to feel exactly what the line is doing through all stages of the cast gives anglers ultimate control so they can make the micro-adjustments needed to place the fly precisely where it’s wanted

The Discovery NANO Fly fishing rods are the best rods we have ever produced. They are beautifully balanced, lightweight with  crisp clean actions that provide both superb casting and fish playing characteristics. They are also phenomenally strong thanks to the revolutionary nature of the new  Silica NANO material. carbon fibre held together with a resin impregnated with silica nano spheres. This technology is relativly new and proven it produces a material that is significantly stronger and  lighter than traditional carbon fibre.

Our Discovery NANO Fly Rods are one of the first fly rods to take advantage of the ground breaking NANO technology in Australia,the most recent evolution in fly rod innovation, uses new materials combined with pioneering manufacturing methods and processes. This technology incorporates an optimized ratio of  proprietary resin to  high modulus grade carbon fiber.
NANO  technology is never more appreciated than when traveling with a single fly rod - the improved impact resistance and strength helps ensure you have a tool that will withstand the worst possible punishment.

Carbon fibres are just that, long thin lightweight strands of carbon that need to be converted into a cloth in order to turn them into a fishing rod.
When making fly rods, each long strand of carbon fibre needs to be held together with a reinforced resin system that provide strength and impact resistance.
This carbon cloth is then wrapped around a mandrel to form the blank and subsequently baked at high temperature, melting the resin to create a full strength fishing rod.

What is Carbon Nanotube Technology?
Applying Carbon Nanotube, or CNT technology creates a stronger resin distribution system, this helps eliminate any weakness in the blank to create rods with significantly increased strength and improved impact resistance, without adding any significant weight to the blank.
The resulting rods are light, smooth and ultra strong - a 60% increase in flexural strength and a 30% increase to impact resistance - without any effect on the superb casting performance you come to expect from all our fly rods
Because  material is stronger, and less material is required and thus a rod can be lighter than an equivalent carbon fibre model. Weight savings of upto 30% are possible.There are two key advantages provided by silica nano spheres. First is the even distribution of the nano spheres throughout the resin providing equality of strength throughout the blank leading to crisp and clean rod actions. The second advantage is that silica nano spheres resist compression forces better than any other known material. This results in a fishing rod that is at least 60% stronger than a standard carbon fibre rod without interfering with the action. The improved compression characteristic also greatly improves impact resistance and durability.

The latest construction methods includes a process that precisely aligns and positions carbon fiber materials to exacting tolerances for the greatest blank strength, delivering extremely efficient energy transfer throughout the shaft. Using  state of the art high Compression Molding process, carbon fibers are compacted for optimum density and precise alignment while simultaneously fusing the 30% percent lighter all-carbon fiber inner core.

Discovery NANO  rod becomes a true extension of the angler’s arm, It offers a more fluid transmission of energy from the arm to the fly. The eye sees the cast it wants to make and is translated to the hand through the rod instantaneously.”

The fast-action Discovery NANO rod family is intended for all fishing conditions thanks to a list of high-end features. The 1st Rod relese is an  8wt weights and a full-wells handle for  saltwater capable  designed to match the exact taper of the rod providing even greater sensitivity and feel.
Other details include the aluminum reel seat. Saltwater weights feature all anodized reel seat components.

And Of Course the on going value for money we are known for, this rod comes in to you at least 100% cheaper than its closest competitor why its simple you are buying direct no whosale and retail markups wish can add up to 100% +  to the retail price  Backed by our Lifetime Warranty

Nano Discovery #8

I've had my 8 weight for about four years now and I love it. It casts an eight or nine weight line with ease in a variety of conditions. Queenies, mangrove jack, various trevally, flathead, thread fin salmon and giant herring have all been taken on this rod. It's speed and lightness mean I can cast repeatedly without too much fatigue. I do have some trouble casting larger flies however, (especially into the wind) so for this reason I will shortly be ordering a #10 now they are available.

I am an avid fly fisherman and have purchased Mikes rods, reels,
Waders and gear for over 14 yrs. 3-4 yrs ago I purchased a Nano 10 wt rod which I used up north. All his gear is top notch

fishing in Mongolia

Hi Mike I’ve just returned from fishing in Mongolia and the 8 weight performed well casting large flies and accounting for around 15 Taimen I became a huge fan of your nano discovery rods when I started using them at Christmas Island chasing bone fish. I still have the IM 10 Discovery six weight which I've landed over 300 bone on up to 9lb. I've also landed a handful of GTs upto 10lb on the six weight. The biggest problem I have is getting enough backing on the discovery reel its matched with. In my opinion they perform better than Loop and Orvis rods I've used. Which is high praise indeed.
