The Seatrout Specialist rods are unique in being extreme light, short and very far casting rods especially designed for coastal seatrout fishing. It is though a fantastic rod in general for streamer and light saltwater use. Beautiful olive green with highest obtainable quality cork handle and fittings.
“This is by far the best seatrout rod we have ever tried", is a statement from many that has tried them. Many of those were very skeptical for having a rod as short as 8 for fishing coastal areas, where you're often wading deep. But these short powerhouse rods surprises almost everyone, as they deliver a tremendous line speed and narrow loops, that generates long cast and back casts higher than most could do with longer rods.
The action is medium fast, and the blank picks up power deep in the blank, but due to the length of the rod it feels much faster. This makes the rod feel very delicate and it is an absolute joy to use, both when casting and when playing your catch, no matter if it is your dream catch or just an average catch.
The blank is made with our new SBD (Slim Blank Design). SBD has many advantages. They are very slim, so they generate less air resistance, something you can feel immediately when driving the rod through the air. As we use the same amount of material, as in a normal blank, the walls is thicker, hence the rod is stronger. These features are an advantage in many situations, but maybe especially when tossing flies in the harsh and often windy saltwater environment.
