Question For Rod Experts

7 posts in this topic

Today I received a Mr. Walleye Series rod that I ordered. The catalog states that it's an IM7 Graphite. The rod says Spiral Halix Carbon Fiber. It seems to be a nice rod for client use but is this a graphite? Thanks

Which series did you get? They make the Mr. Walleye series and the Mr. Walleye Superpro.

The Superpro has the Spiral Helix Carbon Fiber

The other has 100% Graphite

And yes, Carbon fiber is a polymer which is a form of graphite. Graphite is a form of pure carbon. In graphite the carbon atoms are arranged into big sheets. The sheets look like chicken wire.

Carbon fiber is aranged into strands. They look like ribbons of graphite. Bunches of these ribbons like to pack together to form fibers, hence the name carbon fiber.

I got the SuperPro. They retail for $129. I got it for $77. It sounds like what your saying is that I got my moneys worth. Right?
