WINN BRINGS ITS REVOLUTIONARY ROD GRIPS TO ICAST 2014
HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. – Winn Inc.’s revolutionary high-performance, all-weather rod grips will reach the angling world’s biggest stage in Orlando, Florida, this week!
ICAST 2014, July 16-18, is the next stop on an exposition tour that has earned Winn rod grips global attention.
“We already have second generation rod grips with improved functional attributes and even better aesthetics over some of the prototypes we brought to the trade shows in Europe, China and Japan,” said Dr. Ben Huang, Winn Inc.’s owner and founder. “We have expanded offerings in popular grips and sizes and created exciting colors and patterns as well.”
Dr. Huang worked under “the father of rocket science,” Dr. Wernher Von Braun, in the development of the Saturn V rocket that took Apollo spacecraft to the moon and created the Graduate School of Aerospace Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology before turning his attention to the development of the advanced polymers now used on sports equipment and work tools the world over.
Winn revolutionized golf club dynamics with its grip innovations and has left a similar mark on tennis and bicycling with its patented polymers and design innovations. But Dr. Huang thinks anglers will have even greater appreciation for Winn grips.
“In recent years, fishermen have enjoyed innovation in every component of the fishing rod except the seat of control – the handle,” said Dr. Huang. “It is already clear that our WinnDry polymer is even better suited to fishing than it is to golf. And fishermen outnumber golfers by a wide margin.”
Winn grips are available for both O.E.M. and after-market purchase as well as to custom rod building operations.
Performance advantage WinnDry puts non-slip performance, all-day comfort and supreme control in the angler’s hand. The advanced grip material resists moisture and maintains its tacky feel in rain, sleet and snow as well as the sweat of summer. The resultant feel and control deliver performance benefits that include longer and more accurate casts; superior sensitivity and responsiveness; and better control over big fish.
Most Winn rod grips are two-layered, comprised of a lightweight EVA underlisting (inner layer) and outer layer of WinnDry polymer. Because they demand significantly lighter grip pressure, the grips improve the angler’s handling of the rod and reduce arm and shoulder stress.
The Design Edge WinnDry polymers offer boundless color options. Winn’s unique design technologies also generate unprecedented opportunity to match rod elements or create a “signature” look.
Advanced Vertical Seam (AVS) technology, is a patented single-panel wrapping feature that matches the edge of the polymer material over the corresponding underlisting edge to create a flat, perfectly sealed and nearly seamless edge.
Advanced Integration Technology (AIT) enables Winn to combine different materials, colors and grip textures into a single design that gives anglers a wide range of firmness options and a truly endless array of designs.
“Our grips bring fishermen the perfect blend of both function and fashion!” summed Dr. Huang.
