Talon Delta 8’6″ MHF2 Rod Review

What can I say — this rod burns! When the Delta first fell into my hands, of course, i was struck by a slight «bending» of the form at the end, a little careless assembly at the attachment of the handle as well as the absence of the protective film on the handle.

The package also does not look very impressive. Black case, no passport, no tags, just the rod, packed in a cloth case with Talon inscription consisting of two compartments and tied with conventional shoelaces.

This is the first impression that I think any person will have, who had seen Japanese rods from such manufacturers as Major Craft and Graphiteleader, with their thoroughness in all the details in the production and packaging of their products.

But on the water it shows it’s best. This rod knits kilogram pike without too much trouble and tension. Compared with other rods used — this is of the best.

It is a pity that there is no ear for the hook.

Rod weight is 160 g, a very good result, without compromising reliability.

The design is rather moderately fast, the rod noticeably bents to the handle under maximum load.

Talking about reliability — time will tell, there are reviews of the labels peeling off the top of the cork and the cork «fungus» on the butt.

All understandable — cork «fungus» seems not glued to rod (or poorly adhered).
