I might have known – as soon as I purchase a new carbon rod (more on that in a few weeks) they bring out a new material for rods – Carrots
Two Fife scientists have developed a new material made from carrots to replace glass fibre found in everything from fishing rods to car parts.
The inventors, Dr David Hepworth and Dr Eric Whale, plan to start selling fishing rods made from the material, called Curran, next month.
They then hope to move on to carrot fibre snow boards.
The material is billed as a revolutionising performance product with unique strength and weight.
I can just see us all in 20 years – “oh yes, I was there at the start of the carrot revolution”
