Savage Gear Rods
Savage Gear blanks are made from original Japanse Toray Carbon mat material, with 24T, 30T, 40T and 46T ratings. T is for Tonnage, which a is numeric value for rating graphite. The higher the graphite tonnage the stiffer the graphite is and the more vibrations are transmitted through the rod. As tonnage increases less material is required to achieve the same action reducing the weight of the rod and increasing sensitivity.
ACTION - Defining the characteristics of how the rod bends throughout the blank.
EXTRA FAST - Extra fast, tipped bend curve with a stiff bottom and middle section.
FAST - Fast, tipped bend curve, with a stiffer bottom and middle section.
MODERATE FAST - Moderate Fast, more tipped bend curve, with a stiffer bottom section.
MODERATE - Moderate parabollic bend curve, with a somewhat stiffer bottom section.
PARABOLIC - Thru going parabollic bend curve, mainly downrigger and UL trout rods.
