While working on Pontoon21 Psychogun rods, engineers made the main task to achieve maximum sensitivity and uniform resilience in the whole blank. And it was achieved in all rods of this series in spite of their difference. The clue to this task is to choose the right materials (different for each model). The main material used is extremely high modulus graphite by Toray, Japanese producer. It is blended with other materials (by Toray as well as other Japanese producers). Their technical characteristics are chosen with reference to every Psychogun model.
Toray graphite material (prepreg) is rather expensive, and it is in great demand. To satisfy it, not only does Toray produce prepreg independently, but also supply the factories which produce prepreg themselves with the main component – Carbon yarns.
Pontoon21 gives most precise information about the materials used. For example, Psychogun is made of Toray prepreg, at the same time Pontoon21 GAD rods are made from material by Hankook, Korean company, which produces it from Toray carbon yarns.
A lot of companies, producing and selling rods, prefer to mention only the word Toray for the sake of marketing, omitting the real place of prepreg production, although almost all the rods of average prices are made of these graphites, so to say modern materials.
