The EFTTEX Best New Product Awards 2017
If you hold one of those magnificent rods in your hands it will immediately bring to mind the classic bamboo rods of Austria’s famous rod builders. So says Rudi Heger, the company that introduced these Zierhut Bamboo Fly Rods at EFTTEX this year.
Andi Zierhut builds bamboo rods with a rod action that allows almost powerless casting and precise presentations of a fly. His rods have modern actions that make it very easy for every fly fisher to switch from a carbon fly rod to a bamboo one.
“The casting and fishing is simply fantastic with this rod,” adds Rudi Heger.
“Because they are handmade to the highest level, it is a very time consuming and very complex process. The consequence is that only a few pieces per year are available. Only the best materials are used in Zierhut fly rods and all components like the reel seat, ferrules, sleeves and cork grip are handmade.
“Zierhut fly rods are absolutely unique and it took us years to be able to present them. We are delighted to bring them to EFTTEX this year.”
