A.Jensen Viper (PIKE)
Danish design, Scandinavian knowledge!
Deze hengels zijn bedoeld voor de monsters! Uiteraard voor de snoek, maar gemaakt met andere rovers in het achterhoofd zoals: Baramundi, Dorado en Peacock Bass. Zelf gebruiken wij deze super-hengels ook voor karper en de zeebaars.
The A. Jensen Viper is de ultieme roofvishengel en juist door zijn 8ft lengte is deze hengel supersnel en strak. Daardoor werpt de hengel zeer grote (snoek)streamers/vliegen met groot gemak. Wanneer je aggressief getaperde vliegenlijnen gebruikt, zoals de ''Big Fly'' lijnen dan kun je met 2 valse worpen en een dubbelstrip de grote streamers super ver wegschieten.
Probeer het en eens... het zal je verbazen. Vele snoek-(en zeebaars)vissers hebben dit inmiddels ontdekt en gingen je voor.
En zeker als je de Viper combineert met de onovertroffen A.Jensen Big Fly II vliegenlijnen, weet je niet wat je meemaakt...
Dit is het summum voor de serieuze (bellyboat)snoekvisser! Een onovertroffen prijs/kwaliteit verhouding. Great value, great fishing!
The Viper rods are made especially for handling big powerful fish like pike, musky, carp and saltwater species.
These rods are built to meet the needs of especially pike fishermen. The needs are to cast big and bulky flies as easy as possible and to have a lot of power in the bottom of the rod to battle the big ones. At the same time the rod should be as light as possible, as tossing big flies all day can be hard work.
The outcome is the new Viper series.
These fast action rods are built with AHT (Advanced Helical Taper) and SBD (Slim Blank Design) and by using these technologies you get just what you need. Keeping the rods at 8' will increase the power of the rod, and at the same time lower the weight. Try it and you will immediately see why so many saltwater and pike fishermen are turning to the 8' rods...
The Viper rods are all 4 pcs and build with the best fittings on the market, like titanium guides from American Tackle and the best 4 AAAA top quality Portuguese cork as handle.
The blank is made with 40 ton high pressure unidirectional carbon fibers. The colour is dark grey with matching windings tipped with a thin metallic green thread.
The handle is a little special, as we have included 2 sections of rubber cork in the handle at points where you put most pressure while casting. This is to support the grip and you hand the best possible way.
The Viper has a detachable foam fighting handle, that you can add to the rod if needed during fighting big fish, and just take off while casting and fishing. A feature known from saltwater fishing, and a great help when that dream Pike or Musky or Peacock Bass someday finds it way to your fly.
The rods are made to fit like "hand in glove" with the Big Fly II fly lines

About A.Jensen Flyrods
ONE OF THE TRADEMARKS OF THE A. JENSEN RODS IS THE TIME WE SPEND ON EACH MODEL BEFORE IT ENTERS THE MARKET. WE WILL RATHER TAKE ONE YEAR EXTRA WITH THE TEST TEAM AND DESIGNERS, THAN FORCE PRODUCTS INTO THE MARKET, THAT WE DON’T HAVE FULL CONFIDENCE IN.
WE DESIGN OUR RODS, BASED ON A PRACTICAL ANGLE TO FLYFISHING. FIRST OF ALL WE ARE FLYFISHERS OURSELF, AND WE WORK WITH THE AIM TO MAKE GREAT EQUIPMENT, IN ORDER FOR YOU TO EXPERIENCE MORE EFFECTIVE FISHING, AND MOST IMPORTANT MORE JOY IN FLYFISHING.
BY OUR TERMS A FLY ROD IS NOT JUST A CASTING TOOL, BUT A TOOL FOR FISHING.
By that we mean that it should handle both the casting and the
joy of fishing and playing a fish at the same time.
Beside that we 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 flyrods 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. We want our rods to load with short lines, but still be able to cast long lines.
In order to achieve what we want we make a so-called “compensated tip”, meaning a tip that loads quickly. One could make the top of softer material, but then you get a rod action, that feels strange when casting.
Instead we use “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, we 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 easier. On top of that the rod is a light and sensitive instrument, and an absolute 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.
All A.Jensen fly rods are covered by a 2 year warranty.
This covers defects due to craftmanship or materials.
If the rod is damaged, please send the rod and the original receipt (received when you buy the rod) to your dealer.
If the damage is covered by the warranty, the rod will be repaired or replaced.
After 2 years, or in case of the damage is not caused by defect due to craftmanship or materials, each part will be charged at a price equal to the recommended retail price divided by the amount of part. Meaning a part from a 4 piece rod cost ¼ of the recommended retail price of that rod.
Important: The warranty only applies to the original owner and the owner must be able to present the original receipt of the purchase. Resold rods are not covered by this warranty.
