Airrus Stargate. Made of future: 4 years of development for an unprecedented rod.
Airrus has decided to change the rules, once again, using a technology currently applied solely in the military industry. We did is by covering the area of greatest stress with a unique carbon fiber. The result is unconventional power. We called it the 1KCarbon Layered Shield. Each Cm2 of the blank section, from the handle to the stripper guide, counts 1,000 carbon filaments. The Shield gives an unmatchable hook set and dragging power that will provide a never before seen fighting energy thanks to a very low deformation under load. The Magma Technology features a new type of prepreg with unusual characteristics. Our tests showed surprising results in terms of blank lightness, torsional and compression resistance. The efficiency of this new type of material is based on its polyacrylonitrile resin that optimizes the carbon fiber features.
Handle and Sensitivity:
The new Megaphone Handle II will transmit, quicker and more efficiently, any light bite and every lure motion on the bottom because it amplifies the vibrations coming from the line better than any other former handle style. It’s completely custom, it’s made of 100% carbon fiber and assembled without the use of sound absorbing and vibration dampening materials.
Reel Seats and Guides:
We designed a new nylon-graphite reel seat to totally expose the underlying blank and align, as much as possible, the hand with the ideal line of the guides. Giving Stargate a never before seen casting precision. Additionally, we perfected a proprietary raised guide system, unique to our industry, and wrapped the Stargate with the 2nd generation of these extraordinary guides. The ZDH and ZH guides are the result of a close collaboration with Kigan and are the best choice for sensitivity, low weight and line endurance.
