The AOS Design gives several advantages that are not possible with a conventional blank design. The structure of the blank have an increased diameter but it uses the same amount of material, that's possible thanks to the blank structure, made by three different blends of carbon fibers oriented in three different directions. This design, allows the rod to have an unprecedented torsional and vertical strenght and an incredible compression resistance, the main effect is a very powerful hook-setting capability. The diameter and additional space in the blank creates what we call "IME". The Integrated Megaphone Effect is the next evolutionary step of our megaphone technology. The sounding-board effect of the blank increases drastically the vibration transmission, creating an extremely sensitive rod, mantaining the lightweight structure.
The overall result of the AOS Design is an unconventional yet incredibly performing fishing rod.
