The new 2006 Airrus N-Sync
features Nano Composite Technology
The Technology: The latest technology behind the 2006
Airrus rods is brand spanking new to the fishing rod industry. No other company
has designed a rod like this before. By applying Nanotechnology Airrus is able
to form Carbon Nanotubes to further increase a rod's sensitivity and power characteristics,
performance. When the word Nanotechnology is uttered the term usually refers to
extremely small items. The dictionary describes "nanotechnology" as the branch
of engineering that deals with things smaller than 100 nanometers (especially
with the manipulation of individual molecules).
The spinning model uses a
ski-binding like reel seat
The new Airrus N-SYNC series is breathtaking. When we first got raw snapshots of the
bare-bone rod, not knowing what it was made out of, the grip almost looked like a
Russian submarine. This rod doesn't look anything like the Co-Matrix nor the Spectra AFT
series, and we immediately knew Airrus had yet another new and unique product to
show at the upcoming ICAST show this year.
The new rods will feature new
guides without inserts
The N-SYNC is the industry's first rod to make use
of Carbon Nanotube Technology and is constructed using Carbon Nanotube Composites.
By applying this technology the end result is a rod that's lighter, more
tougher with an overall improvement in sensitivity due to reduced resin
levels and the increased fiber loading that can be attained by using carbon fiber nanotubes. The fine Nanotubes
in the Airrus N-Sync rod are so small that
they fill many of the "holes" that larger fibers leave open resulting in an
overall more sound construction. This technology has incessant benefits and Airrus
harnesses the unique attributes of nano-design to create a fishing rod unlike
The new Airrus N-SYNC rods will have a total of eight models, four
casting and four spinning, taking on a form similar to the current "Tradition"
This is the casting model. It features a very
unique reel seat. Both the casting and spinning models you hold directly onto
the graphite of the rod. Imagine the sensitivity!
The first company to ever use Carbon Nanotube Composites in a fishing rod,
Airrus has come a long way and is well known for its innovative use of exotic rod
materials and unique rod building designs and processes. After getting only a sneak peek of what's new for 2006,
we are very excited about these rods and if they are what Airrus claims, the new
N-SYNC rods will be extremely durable, strong, and exceptionally sensitive thanks to
the implementation of nanotechnology. The Airrus N-SYNC is sure to make a big
splash at next weeks ICAST show in Las Vegas. While many rod companies
simply trot along with conservative changes to their existing rod lineup, Airrus
proves once again that they are not afraid to be the first to make use of
new-fangled materials and conceive radical new products.
