The Midgar speyblanks are designed to master
all the different phases in the speycast, in addition to let you have full
control of the fly when fishing and casting. The rod action is nice an even,
with a strong tip and lots of backbone. In practical terms the rod
will load further down towards the butt the more you push it, but it
will never be too strong. The great feel of playing the fish is still the
most important thing!
The Companion 4 piece series are designed and built to be light and quick.
These blanks reflect the latest in design technology.
The TX4 series was developed for the modern fly fisher looking for a longer
(11'0") travel rod (all models are 4 piece) in a single hand configuration.
Completed rods are lightweight (all factory rods weigh less than 5 oz
completed) and sensitive yet durable enough to land big fish with
We do not believe that the materials alone make a rod good or bad -
they just allow the designer to achieve different performance levels.
In this case we were looking for a specific action for a specific fishery.
We achieved this with the TX4. Basically the top section is built to
maximize the responsiveness of the rod and the lower section is designed for
quickness and durability. If the road you are traveling takes you on a
journey for Great Lakes steelhead or trophy brown trout this is the rod for
The Cairnton series is our 3 piece high modulus blanks. They
are light weight and available in light trout and saltwater.
Our Highlander series are manufactured with a blend of high modulus
materials. The 3 piece two-handed blanks flex more than the Midgar
allowing for a slower cast. The 2 piece Highlander Light are designed
for very small streams and lighter fishing. The 3 piece blanks offer a
more moderate action than our Cairnton.
The ITM series includes all models available in the VI PLUS. These
blanks are built using high performance graphite that allows them to be
lighter than the VI PLUS and Explorer. These blanks are slightly
quicker than the VI PLUS.
New to this series in 2006 are our 4 piece 9'9' travel
models and our 4 piece 11'9" models.
