‘OANNES’ pronounced ‘O’ – ‘ARE’ – ‘NES’, originates from the name given to the Babylonian Water God – A creature described as being half man-half fish, who would leave the sea every day and return at night. OANNES was Master of the Sea and the God of Wisdom – A true Badass of the deep.
At OANNES we utilize wisdom from experience and employ state of the art technology to produce the highest quality niche market fishing rods, tackle and accessories available. We will never sacrifice quality over profitability – Truly Badass in the best possible way.
In our pursuit of perfection, we strictly adhere to the Japanese ‘Kaizen’ philosophy based on continuous improvement in everything we do. We are constantly identifying areas of our products and customer service to improve 24/7, and any improvement we make, whether it is large or small – is an incremental achievement towards perfection.
OANNES Drone Series Rods are no nonsense – get the job done rods that truly embellish our motto ‘Submit and Conquer’.
Drone Master Series rods have been specifically designed and built to OANNES high quality standards, employing state of the art carbon fibre blank technology. All rods are equipped with high end components specific to the rods design, and the task at hand – To Submit and Conquer! OANNES Drone Master Series rods are constructed from ultra-high modulus, multi directional carbon fibre, resulting in a light-weight crisp action. The use of X Weave technology on ATARGATIS, VALKYRIE AND G-REAPER models further strengthens and ensures even distribution of stress over the entire length of the rod blank.
Reinforced carbon power joints have been employed to further enhance the rods heavy-duty construction, ensuring superior rod strength. Fuji K-Series guide frames were chosen for their outstanding line management, light weight and incredible strength. These quality guide frames are fitted with Fuji Alconite guide rings and a Fuji SIC rod tip guide ring for G-REAPER and PREDATOR – VALKYRIE AND ATARGATIS have Fuji Alconite rings. FUJI SIC and Alconite guide rings are renowned for their first-rate heat dissipation and low line abrasion properties.
For rods of this calibre we fitted a strong and light weight FUJI graphite reel seat and quality non-slip X wrapped EVA grips for comfort and feel. PREDATOR and G-REAPER are fitted with an aluminium gimbal end with EVA cap.
Although drone rods do not require any casting ability, all OANNES Drone Master Series have been constructed with exceptional casting ability for those days the wind picks up and grounds the drone.
There’s an old saying ‘Never take a knife to a gun fight’, and if these rods were firearms – they would be 50 Cal’s – Use a big enough rod!
