Matrix Power Flex Blanks - Fly Series
The 3K carbon twill combined with the high-intermediate modulus unidirectional material provides a stiffer handle section with increased recovery rate and extra power flex focused in the perfect blended transition. The blank action and load distribution begins in the unidirectional material which transitions into the carbon twill to provide better casting, hook sets, and fishing fighting power making them “better blanks”.

I purchased an American Tackle 905/4 Matrix fly blank. When I was taping guides on the blank and flexing it preforming the static test to place the guides the tip section broke about 4 inches from the ferrule. I then noticed that the female ferrule section of the mid tip section had also cracked. I like American Tackle rod building components but this is my first and last experience with their blanks.
