Middy never fail to impress with their rods and they continue to be the driving force behind cutting-edge developments. The new flagship Quartix feeder rods are the first in the world to take advantage of a revolutionary new quiver construction technique, whereby the quivers are hollow, and spliced at the tip - the result is better casting accuracy, a smoother action and insanely sensitive bite registration!
It was always believed that you could not possibly splice a quiver without it resulting in flat spots within the blank. After more than a year of experimentation, Middy have now solved the issue and will be offering the first ever rods with hollow quiver tips that are also spliced with a super sensitive section that is just 20cm long.
Now full of confidence that they’ve got it right with the latest samples, Middy invited their team of sponsored anglers to visit HQ separately and try them out. Top matchmen including Lee Thornton, Chris Cameron, Jordan Hall and Lee Werrett had only good comments and impressed faces, particularly when shown the carbon quivers with their Spiratech reinforcement and how quickly the overall rod bounced back to be perfectly still after being bent as if in action.
The range of Quartix flagship rods will include 11ft, 12ft and 13ft models and they will now go into full production, with hopes of them appearing in shops around late June or early July. The RRP prices are high and they reflect the incredible quality of these elite level rods – however - they’re worth every penny, plus as usual many retailers will actually offer big savings compared to Middy’s RRP prices.
