Euronymph blank choice
« on: 27/12/2020 at 12:50 »
Any experience with a couple of the Euronymph  blanks available from guidesnblanks please?
Specifically the Evoke 10ft 2/3 wt and the unbranded 10ft 2wt nano helix in the sale section?
Thanks

Sorry James

Iíve no specific experience of either blank. I think the Nano helix blanks are the same as the ones that you can get from Taniwha and they make into nice rods. But I donít know for certain. Mark is closed until 11th of Jan but Iím pretty sure his blanks are less  :wink

Thanks Sandy. The nano helix is £84.50 (slightly less than the taniwha price) and the Evoke is £95.40. I need some other odds and ends from guidesnblanks so any postage costs will be spread across those as well.
But some of the downlocking taniwha reel seats look very tempting...........

A little late to the discussion, but I have the 2 weight Nano Helix rod.

I love it! It is a really nice rod to use and I have had fish to around 4lbs on it with little problem.

I made it for Bugging for Grayling when the rivers are low and clear and the flies scaled down a bit,  but it now comes trout  fishing with me more often than not.

If you are planning on using heavy jigs and 3 to3.5mm tungsten beads, then look at the 4 weight, but for French nymphing,  2mm beads and clear water, it is lovely.

I went for the unbranded nano helix 10ft 2wt from guidesnblanks, very pleased with it. I've limited exposure to other 10ft 2wt rods but it feels light, very sensitive and a joy to use when playing fish.

I have had Brownies to jut over 3lb on mine, from a fast, run, and it coped well. It is lovely for pinging out bugs. It is a Taniwha Rodworks blank as Sandy suggested.
