Hexagraph Avon

The Bruce & Walker Hexagraph rod is made in only one place in the world.  And that is by Bruce & Walker in the village of Upwood, Great Britain.  

Hexagraph rods are now highly acclaimed all over the world. With the advent of the Hexagraph construction it was obvious to most anglers that we had pioneered a rod making concept, which combined the best of tried and trusted construction principles, and with modern materials.

The original thinking with Hexagraph was to make rods which eliminated all the in-built shortcomings of tubular rods. Most prominent among these faults is for the tube to go into oval shape when put under stress or load, and for it then to lose considerable strength. Another problem manifests itself in the manufacturing process when the matrix of carbon is wound on to a mandrel. This leaves a ‘spine’ or portion of carbon which overlaps another. Due to the taper of the rod this ‘spine’ never runs true and it is the cause of inaccurate casting.

All the above shortcomings are in-built in all tubular rods and may only be reduced by such concepts as our Expert range where wall thicknesses are increased and overall diameters reduced. Then, by using the very latest and highest quality carbon it is possible to produce rods which are lighter, length for length, than tubular rods have ever been before.

On a power to weight ratio, and length for length, Hexagraph has eclipsed the performance of any other production rod today.   They are highly labour intensive, just like the old split cane rods of yesteryear.  Each single Hexagraph rod takes a staggering 400 hours of labour to create, from start to finish.

11'

1lb

= 1044.00

This rod has a through action and is the classic Avon style fishing of a 1lb test curve.  It is sensitive enough to feel everything right through to the handle.  

11'

1.25lbs

870+UK Tax

= 1044.00

This model still has the classic through action, but with reserves of power.  It comes into its own when presenting swim feeders, and other baits, used in heavily weeded swims, often encountered during the summer months.

11'

1.5lbs

1020+UK Tax

= 1224.00

Again, this rod still maintains a classic, through action of the Avon style rods.  But it is ideal for fishing in the margins, or perfect for heavy, fast water.   The rod's strong Avon action means less "pull outs",  whilst the design of the blank still enables presure to be piled on, when the situation dictates.
