The ultimate rod for the big boys. Pike, Perch, Zander .... this rod will handle them with ease.
Cast big flies at short, medium and long range. Quick fire.
The Predator can put a lot of artillery down range in quick succession, covering a lot of water, triggering those angry responses from predatory, lurking fish.
The true through action of the Predator is designed to keep you in constant contact with large flies. Bullying those big fish out of the weeds and undergrowth, using the rods full action, not just the tip.
And as if the performance wasn't enough, we've designed the Predator with a flamed mahogany unground blank. A thing of beauty.
The Predator harks back to the days when rods had soul. Quite simply a formidable piece of kit.
The action was perfect to cast medium sized flies with very little back casting space, I’d move up to the #9 for larger flies. The size of the 3 Torzite K Series strippers means that I can have the head in the rings, strip to my feet and get the full head out again to recast in one false cast. Perfect with the obstructions behind us and for these lethal Pike flies. This fish took at my feet and the rod, being softer, took the impact and played this fish perfectly. It’s as though the tip follows the fish making it impossible to escape. Stiffer rods create shock between fish and rod, especially at short distance and you lose fish. I can’t recommend this rod enough.
