The Taylor Truth Z fly rod sets new standards in terms of speed. Because the blank of the Taylor Truth Z is a very fast blank with an even faster recovery speed! In addition, the rod convinces not only with its speed, but also with a simple, stylish design, high-quality components and a first-class finish.
The Truth Z achieves through the processing of the carbon product graphene, together with high-strength carbon fiber, a fast action of the rod without winning too much weight. For example, a mid-range #7 of the Truth Z weighs in at just 99 grams. So everything points to this being a very manageable casting machine from Taylor, and we can confirm that. The light weight allows the rod to be fished without fatigue over a long period of time and the action of the rod ensures extremely small loops, which are reflected in a high line speed. The pointed loops and the resulting, low resistance, as well as the speed in the air provide in the end for an extreme casting distance with little effort. Hair-trigger presentation through very straight and pointed loops over long distances is thus exactly what the Truth Z is all about, whether fishing dry flies for shy trout or streamers for other predatory fish.
The revolutionary, semi-polished, matte black blank of the fly rod naturally deserves to have hardware to match. Thus, no compromises were made in terms of processed components. The guide rings of the Truth Z are extremely durable and lightweight Cericoil titanium rings, which favor the low weight of the rod and give the rod stability. The other rings differ in the classes of the rods, so the #4 and #5 classes have Recoil titanium single rings and higher classes have snake rings. The Recoil rings are known for their flexibility and the fact that they spring back to their original shape after being stressed. Another advantage of the flexible rings is that they act like a small shock absorber for the blank and prevent excessive vibration in the rod - small rings, big effect!
The reel seat was also designed with functionality and light weight in mind. The sleeve of the reel seat is made of a carbon and other components, such as the reel seat or the lock nuts made of high quality aluminum. The two lock nuts and the shoe, to secure the role were additionally provided with large recesses to save weight again and incidentally to achieve an ingenious look. Embedded is the reel seat, as well as the modern blank of the Truth Z in an almost non-porous cork of the pile grade, which has a handy and grip shape.
With the Taylor Truth Z fly rod, in addition to the ingenious, fast action of the rod, attention was also paid to the timeless look and, of course, the high-quality components, which ultimately ensure that the Truth Z is a flyweight among modern rods and is also saltwater resistant in all classes! A great rod that handles long distances with ease.
