Additional Info

THE OPTI NXT series is a range of fly rods designed specifically for modern double-handed casting techniques. Throughout the spectrum of fishing styles, these rods excel in all disciplines of modern fly casting from compact skagit techniques to long line traditional speycasting. The series is designed for a range of applications from hunting deep glides for gnarly winter steelhead to swinging dry flies for Atlantic salmon.

A FLY RODS PERFORMANCE IS OFTEN judged by how it casts certain types of lines (i.e. shooting heads, weight forward, Skagit and Scandi, etc…) or by how tight of loops the angler can cast. Unfortunately, very seldom are rods judged on their ability to lift the fly line and place an accurate anchor. When Underhand/Scandi casting, the D-Loop doesn’t need to be very deep. Basic physics demand that a stiff rod, which by nature is harder to bend (bend = load), will need more line behind the rod tip, but this is not a luxury always available when fishing many rivers and streams. Therefore the purpose for OPTI NXT is to find a balance where the angler can lift, anchor and make accurate casts without extreme effort of overloading the rod. In other words, you will still be able to pick up a sinking line and not loose the ability to cast with your “back to the wall”. Another way of looking at it is that with less effort, the angler can use the deeper action of the rod to make the same cast as using a faster (stiffer) rod.
