|Carbon Helix Core
A single carbon spiral is at the core of the blank. This type
of structure is commonly regarded as the most effective way of
maintaining cross section stability during bending.
In a flexing situation, the blank is undergoing pressures that can cause it to change from a round shape to a slightly oval shape.
Even a small 2% reduction in section height caused by these pressures will reduce the stiffness of the rod by around 10%.
The higher the loading, the softer the blank will become, reducing its ability to fight fish.
Through the use of the CTS carbon helix core, blanks are able
to boast a true 100% carbon construction.
response and agility are optimized
through utilizing the lightweight and high strength characteristics
that only carbon can give.
This new type of construction enables us to place totally different modulus materials at each part of the blank. Unlike traditional multi modulus systems which lay up materials of differing modulus materials together, our new Modulus Replacement Technology is all together different, taking blank manufacture to a new level.
|Variable fit length
The join lengths between each section within our multi piece blanks are varied according to the load that they are designed to carry. This ensures flat spots and swing weights are minimized.
Computer Aided Engineering CAE
Computer Aided Engineering has enabled CTS to design precise blank
ranges with perfectly progressive actions through the entire range.
CTS works closely with its boutique carbon suppliers to obtain the optimum fiber types and resin systems to ensure all CTS blanks are at the leading edge in terms of material development.
Up to five different types of carbon are used in each blank. Each type is placed at various parts of the blank to optimize strength and weight.
Target Zero Fibre Alignment
Fiber alignment along the length of any blank is critical. Even the smallest deviation in fiber alignment from the axis of load will greatly reduce the strength of the blank.
All CTS blanks are designed and produced to ensure all fiber is aligned as near perfect as can be with the load.
