A.Jensen Avon (NEW)
NEW NEW NEW
Danish design, Scandinavian knowledge!
Een schitterende opvolger van de A.Jensen Ignita hengels. Zeer delicate en gevoelige hengels. Precies zoals je het wil bij het vissen op de Europese riviertjes en beken. A.Jensen zou A.Jensen niet zijn als de hengel ook niet voorzien was van geheime krachten. En dat heeft ie!
Dit is de ultieme hengel voor de droge vlieg of een nymph. En als je een grote vis haakt of afstanden moet werpen...geen probleem. De Avon kan het allemaal.
Scandinaviers hebben gevoel voor stijl en vakmanschap. Als je in Scandinavië bent merk je het aan alles...er is gewoon over nagedacht! A. Jensen hengels behoren dan ook tot de absolute top. Het zijn zeer lichte hengels gebouwd op de beste blanks. Heel fraai afgewerkt. En het allerbelangrijkste zijn de meer dan geweldige werpeigenschappen. Daar komt bij de scherpe prijs voor een hengel uit het topsegment. Dat alles bij elkaar is precies waar wij voor staan. Great Value, great fishing!
Vergelijk de kwaliteit van deze hengels rustig met merken als Sage, Orvis, en Hardy of zelfs beter. Het prijsverschil is echter wel groot en de garantieregeling (in Europa) is een heel stuk eenvoudiger, sneller en coulanter geregeld als je eens een hengel zou breken.
Avon - Avon is the name of a famous chalk stream in south of England, the river where Frank Sawyer worked and developed the even more famous Pheasant tail Nymph.
The new Avon rod from A.Jensen is based on knowledge from earlier top-selling rod series mixed with the knowledge from very skilful trout and grayling anglers from north and south of Europe. And the result is a striking new series of top-performing rods for the seríous dry fly and nymph fisherman.
We have used the new highest density carbon and IM8 Nanomaterial combined with the best fitting available, we have designed a super slim and lightweight rod. The Avon rod is extremely delicate and sensitive, but at the same time surprises you, as it has a lot of power, if a bigger fish turns up, or you should need to do distance casting. The blank is of course build with AHT (Advanced Helical Taper) and SBD (Slim Blank Design), as most of our top series, it ensures a fast rod action and a phenomenal low weight.
The rods looks very nice with it's deep olive colored blank, with olive thread and a slim gold trim around the logo and the shooting guide. Shooting guides is American Tackles Titanium guide and snakes are the best obtainable quality super hard Chrome double leg models. Handle and cork part of the reel seat is of highest obtainable quality AAAA Portuguese cork, and the reelseat of aircraft grade aluminium.
Many of you loved the Ignita rods, and you will for sure love this new series, as it is build on the Ignita taper, only using the newest state of the art carbonfibre and fittings. The outcome is a fishing tool, that has to be tried to understand it's potential. And then there is the weight.....62 gram for a 8' fishing rod - this is surely a lightweigth rod, but don't underestimate it, even a lightweight can "hit hard", and this rod sure does...

About A.Jensen Flyrods
ONE OF THE TRADE MARKS 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 CONFIDENSE 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 more easy. 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.
