CUTTING-EDGE TECHNOLOGY

The result of several years' research by our engineers at Banana Rods, plus close collaboration with top lure anglers, the HELIOS range allows you to cover all types of freshwater lure angling.  

 

The exclusive use of high-modulus carbon gives the rods exceptional resonance. Our 45° helix technology, Precision X, is unique in the predator-fishing market. Rods from the HELIOS range will launch your lure with remarkable accuracy in all angling situations.

HELIOS

The HELIOS range covers all types of freshwater lure fishing. Using the finest carbons and our exclusive technologies, the HELIOS range represents the ultimate in terms of PERFORMANCE and FINISH

EXCEPTIONAL RESONANCE

TORAY and MITSUBISHI give the HELIOS range exceptional resonance. These levels of performance allow you to work your lure effectively with extreme precision, and provide you with heightened sensations when you get a take, even from delicate-biting fish.

HEAD TO HEAD BATTLE

The lightness and resonance of the rods in the HELIOS range give you maximum sensations when playing fish of all sizes, while keeping plenty in reserve to overcome the hardest-fighting specimen.

CARBON WHIPPING FOR A MAXIMUM OF RESONANCE !

As part of our ongoing programme of research and innovation, Banana Rods has developed a new whipping technology – the carbon whipping. Placed directly over the foot of the ring, using a carbon developed specially for Banana Rods, our carbon whippings are then cured in the oven following the same process that is used in the manufacture of carbon blanks. Carbon whippings present numerous advantages:

 

Technical advantages: Reduction in weight of whippings, high resistance to rings being torn out (more than twice that of conventional whippings), increased flexibility of the ring/blank bond, plus enhanced rod sensitivity…

 

Aesthetic advantages: highly attractive dark grey carbon effect – discreet, guaranteeing visual integration and total harmony between the carbon of the blank and the carbon of the whipping, and reducing the thickness of the whipping.

 

The best compromise between looks and performance !

What our customers say about the rods...

Grégory - 

This rod is at the top of the top ! Thank you Banana Rods !!!!! 

Kevin - 

I’ve jerked a 20g bait, a real pleasure, and in fish fighting it bends perfectly.

Régis - 

I was sceptical but now that I have it with me at the water’s edge I can confirm that the blank adapts perfectly to the lure you’re using within this wide power range. An exceptional blank, from the little I’ve seen in my 15 days of fishing...
