Thread: Carrot rods?

  1. #1


    Heard a News item this morning that a boffin in the North East has developed a new eco friendly material by combining carrot rind with resin to produce a material he claims to be stronger, lighter and more ecologically acceptable than kelva or carbon fibre.
    Apparently, he has made some fly rods from this new material, and claims it will revolutionise fishing.
    Brilliant. I can't wait. Imagine shipping your 1000 pole backwards through long grass or a bush only to find a rabbit had chewed the end off while you rebaited!

    Probably the substance carotene which has some remarkable properties.

    I heard this on radio2 this morning. Two scientists (one called Hepworth) reckon they'll produce fly rods next month then snow boards and god knows what.

    Called it "Carron" or "Caron" fibre. Googled it but failed miserably!
