‘JENSEN TAKE TIME DEVELOPING RODS BEFORE PLACING THEM IN THE MARKET, THEY WILL TAKE TIME TO PERFECT THE RODS RATHER THAN RUSH A ROD INTO THE MARKET SO ITS ALWAYS RIGHT.  THEY HAVE ALWAYS SAID THAT A ROD IS FOR FISHING AND NOT JUST A CASTING TOOL’.

‘By that they mean that it should handle both the casting and the joy of fishing and playing a fish at the same time.

Beside that Jensen wanted to create rods, that are able to cast both long lines and shorter lines with full control, as this is one of the crucial aspects of flyfishing. With many modern fly rods you only get the rod properly loaded, with a lot of line outside the top, and only from that point on will you cast with full control. They wanted rods to load with short lines, that will still be able to cast long lines.

In order to achieve what they wanted, they make a so called “compensated tip”, meaning a tip that loads quickly. They could have made the top of softer material, but then you get a rod action, that feels strange when casting. 


Instead Jensen used a “Advanced Helical Taper” technology and thereby creating a rod, where the top of the rod loads quickly, without being soft. The “Advanced Helical Taper” technology means changing and opening the angle of the helical wound graphite towards the top. By using the same material, and still under the same amount of tons of pressure as the rest of the blank, you get a rod, that performs with a unique balance.

The quick loading top has many benefits. When fishing shorter lines, such as when fishing dries and nymphs, you will have more accuracy and control.

When fishing stillwaters, both lakes and salts, you will with much ease be able to shoot the first meters of line, as the rod actually cast the line right from the first false cast. There is no “waving” the rod, to get so much line out, that the rod actually loads and casts. Your casting strokes will be more balanced, as you get a rhythm right from the start of the cast. It will simply put feel more easy. On top of that the rod is a light and sensitive instrument, and an absolutely joy to play a fish on. This brings us back to the where we started – We want to make a fishing rod, not just a casting rod.
