New geometries in closed die construction do not come along very often. Most of it has already been invented.

Traditionally, the hexagonal design has been the most widely accepted. Other blank shapes such as quads, pentas and octas have also been around for years. In addition to the blank shapes, the hollow splice has also become more and more established in closed die construction in recent years. A hollow splice, regardless of the geometry chosen, is lighter and splashier in action. However, one can find arguments for both hollow-spliced and solid-bodied construction for their respective characteristics. A solid-bodied rod is probably heavier, but it is precisely this weight that can have a very positive effect on the casting characteristics of a rod. The mass of the blank weight once set in motion, the fly line casts almost independently.

But now to the Rose:
The Rose is a new blank design, which is ideal for two-handed rods, and there especially for the Speycaster among us.
The Rose is the result of the further development of our 13-fold spinning rods, which we have been building since 2003. On the occasion of the rod builders meeting 2006 in Sarnen, we presented the geometry of the 13-fold spooled rods in a 6-fold hollow construction:

6-fold hollow construction

This blank form developed by us is now successfully implemented by several rod builders around the world. The blanks impress with a silky smooth, yet lively action and are considered a real enrichment among blank shapes.
This has motivated us to experiment further and to meet the requirements of modern Speycasting. We call the resulting blank shape Rose:

36-fold hollow-cast construction

In this design, 36 splices are installed in hollow construction and provide the unique casting characteristics of these rods.

The production effort is correspondingly high, but for a 3-piece rod no less than 108 splices must be manufactured and processed to the blank. This may still be somewhat comfortable for the hand and middle section. In the tip section, the diameter of the individual splice is only 0.30 mm.
