The engineering and materials in the Axiom II rod satisfy the broadest range of casting styles and strokes. Whether short and powerful or long and smooth, the rod will accept the caster without the need to adapt stroke to rod action. Easy to load, (bend) and quick in unloading, which also ensures accurate and true tracking. No bounce, shock and no wobble on the stop - A2 rods are smooth and efficient casting tools.The last and possibly most gratifying job a rod has is to bring the fish to hand so you can capture the "Kodak, " moment for all times. Fly rods offer the angler a range of options based on the butt angle to the fish. At or near 90-degrees to the fish's pull, a rod is a long shock absorber that helps protect lighter tippet. At 45-degrees, the effective lever shortens and the bottom half of the rod now has bend, has more power and allows you to put more pressure on a fish.
Heavy tippet and big strong fish allow for fighting angles that are very slight - think 15 to 25-degrees. The bend or load is now down in the butt - in the most powerful part of the rod. The A2 design accommodates all three and lets you choose how and when to apply pressure. Alignment dots for quick assembly. Cordura covered rod case and rod sock.
