Where is your headquarters?

We are based on the North Shore of Auckland. A strategic spot that makes it super convenient to access all of our favorite adventure spots.

Where are your products designed and made?

All of our products are born here in New Zealand. The design and often prototypes are made by our in house crew and then we get on a plane to find the very best partners to produce them at a commercial scale. The majority of our products currently come from china with the rods being made out of the same factory as CD rods.

What are your Rods made out of?

The very best Japanese carbon material we can find. In the case of our fly rods, this is a 40T Toray pre-impregnated high modulus carbon fibre. Our saltwater rods are made out of a 30T carbon combined with a patented material we cant tell you to much about (it’s a secret but is what gives it the extra power and durability).

What year did Trycd start?

Composite Developments was founded in 1981 and CD rods were produced soon after. Unfortunately we spent our time focusing on making rods rather than trademarking names so when it came to taking our new product to the world, we had to create a new name in 2018, TRYCD.
