CTS Fly Rods to a fly fisher, these rods become magical over the water.
CTS blanks are manufactured entirely from non-wove fiber. A single helical spiral is at the core of each carbon blank. This type of structure is regarded as the most effective way to maintain cross section stability while bending. By contrast, woven based blanks exhibit large amounts of fiber crimping that results in markedly reduced loading potential.
Perfect-Stripping Guides The company Perfect is a Poland and at the moment the only one company in Europe, specializing in manufacturing of agate guides.
Sutherland Welles Ltd.®
It began in 1967
Long before it was politically correct or even trendy to be “green”, Frank Sutherland Welles founded a company formulating with a 100% pure Tung oil product. Frank’s commitment to providing wood with a nourishing, renewing treatment and working with a natural product was visionary. It has been the foundation of our business that has produced beautiful wood in homes, businesses and public spaces for over four decades! The legacy of sustainable products, formulated with as low toxicity as possible, has been at the core of our corporate values and vision and will remain so.
Our Green Process
Sustainably Grown Raw Tung Oil:
We wish we could say that it could be grown here in Vermont, but the truth is we can’t even grow it in the United States. Our raw Tung Oil is shipped in from China believing their products to be superior to those grown in South America.
Inbound & Outbound Shipments:
Tung Oil, solvent, boxes, and cans are coordinated by the Sutherland Welles team to minimize the carbon impact.
We purchase our cans from a company that uses recycled metal, which means less metal in the landfill.
Recycled & Reused Shipping & Handling:
Our cardboard boxes and bubble wrap are made from partially recycled materials. We use biodegradable packing peanuts.
