Where Carrot Stix Got Their Name

Share this Post:

Have you heard of the fishing rod called Carrot Stix? Of course you have!

But did you know that the name Carrot Stix comes from “Nanocellulose Bio-Fibres”? Well, it’s true, because these bio-fibres (that are used to make the fishing rod tighter and more responsive) actually come from real carrots. Thus, the name Carrot Stix!

You see, these fibres are added to the bonding matrix to create a super strong bond called “bio-polymer”. This pulp is considered to be an agricultural waste product, so the nano-fibres that result from this process are highly sustainable, bio-degradable and eco-friendly.

The rods also use Nano Silica technology which is nano-size micro-spheres of silica that, when added to the special resin, improves compression strength up to 75 percent, making the blank even more durable without adding weight.

This also dampens vibration, letting you cast straighter and farther than ever before—especially with the microwave guide system they’re equipped with.

Carrot Stix Rods has won more than 47 awards since being introduced in 2007 when it won the “Best Product of the Year” and the “Most Innovative Product” awards at ICAST, the fishing industries version of the Oscars.
