My thoughts on the new Diamond rods

01 October 2013 - 03:37 PM

I recently received my new Diamond rods from Ben and here's what I found. First off, they are not lighter than my race rods. My black race rods weigh 58.4 grams and my Diamonds weigh 59.5 grams. The heaviest rod is the center rod, which has the weight of 2 rods, right at 20 grams. I don't see how I can fly in a lower wind range with them as opposed to using the rr 's. They are stiffer than RR's, but that's about the only difference I was able to discern. They look great, and fly well, but, for the money, in My instance, don't really see the value in them, regular RR's would suffice. Don't get me wrong here, I LOVE my Revs and EVERYTHING about them, I just wasn't impressed with these new rods. I'd love to hear other opinions on these. Again, this is just my opinion of them, as I'm definitely not an iQuad quality flyer. Thank you.
