This rod model is what we call the saltwater version. Equipped with a fighting butt its action is extra-extra-fast to help punch through the wind when you are fishing the surf or the flats. Powerful enough to handle bonefish. Perfect for speckled trout, snook, and juvenile permit. The saltwater models focus on accuracy of the cast, reinforced by extra power in the mid-section for distance casting.
This is the bread and butter trout rod for most anglers. A great choice for all-around versatility and performance. This is the lightest, finest casting 9-foot 5-weight in the industry, as determined by more than a few shootouts, comparison tests and university studies.
