A Few New Scott Rods in Shop!

We've just picked up a few rods from Scott, currently in the shop!

You'll notice immediately the unfinished graphite look to these rods, part of Scott's overall commitment to quality. Sanding down the finish has the potential to create weak spots in the outside of the taper, weak spots you'll never notice until your rod folds in half during a trip. This unique look takes advantage of the natural luster of graphite, paying homage to the beauty of the materials.

They also feature an internal ferrule which you won't find in other rods of similar quality that creates a continuous flex and enhances the action. There are 12" and on some models, 20 " hash marks on the blank to offers a quick measurement for hero fish. The wraps are eye-pleasing. The action is sweet. Come on in and check 'em out!

Scott expands the core diameter of their rods and thins out the thickness of the walls to make the rods more stable and enhance the feel of the cast. They layer carbon reinforcement in the blanks to counteract the torque that causes casts to go awry. They very the modulus layup to precisely control the flex and recovery of the rods, making each of them load up and cast smoothly.

The Scott Difference, from their site:

At Scott, we’ve spent almost 40 years working to perfect the design, craftsmanship, and performance of fly rods. Along this journey, we’ve developed a way of doing things that we call The Scott Difference.

It’s focused on handcrafting every rod we sell. It’s driven by our love of the sport, the places it takes us, and the people we meet along the way. It’s about striving to make the ultimate fishing tools. Tools perfectly suited to their fishing applications.

We live it every day in the shop, cutting precise patterns from custom made graphite materials, carefully creating cork grips, and lovingly wrapping each guide by hand.

Most of all, the Scott Difference is about the people. The people who handcraft exceptional fly rods, the people who fish them, and the people who believe there’s a better way to do things.
