Why design fishing rods?  Dr. Cashion’s research experience and expertise lies at the interface of advanced adhesives and continuous fibers.  “The composite interface is the most important juncture of a fishing rod blank.  Fiber encapsulation with the epoxy matrix influence the flexural and compression strength of composite blanks.” says Dr. Cashion.  What does this mean?  The details matter, a fishing rod’s strength and performance depends how well the fibers bond with the epoxy surrounding them.
