Also consider

    Our goal was to make a 7 weight that felt like a 6 or even a 5 weight to cast. 

    The rod had to be schizophrenic. It needed to be a 5 weight one day and an 8 weight another day. Sometimes in the same day. We broke it down. The goals:

    • No hingeing between the mid and tip section
    • Bend into the handle
    • Load very short and become a 5 weight when needed
    • Cast very long distances with streamers when needed
    • Feel like a parabolic full flex rod
    • Cast into Argentinian winds (this was just for Tom!)
    • Generate very high line speed
    • Handle sinking lines, long heads and distance casting strokes 

    Stats

    • Weight : 116g
    • 4 piece unground natural carbon blank
    • K series anti friction strippers
    • Balanced full flex action 
    • Hard anodised saltwater resistant reel seat with anti jam threads.
    • Alignment dots
    • Aluminium tube

    Lines

    For larger fliesuse the Short Head. It has a compact head for punching out flies into a wind.

    If you need extreme distance combined with fine control, then use the Long Head. Designed for smaller lures, bushy dries, plume tips, buzzers & nymphs. The 49' head feels like casting a 35' head because of the lack of friction on the coating. Friction is the number 1 killer of fly casting perfection in our sport.

    If you want to fish lures / streamers & pike flies deep in lakes or rivers, use the El Guapo Streamer.  It's designed for firing streamers from drifting boats & quick fire lure fishing on stillwaters. It will load as short as 5' and fire another 40' out in 1 false cast. It's a rocket but it doesn't land heavy. We make float, float / inter, inter / s2 / s4.

    Leaders

    Use Straight 'n' Soft tapered leaders. They are the only leaders on the market that don't coil. They aren't shiny and they lay dead straight. They are a dull matt grey colour at the butt section and clear at the front.

    Stillwater buzzer setup

    18' total leader length consisting of;

    Onto the end of the tapered leader tie;

    • a 7" dropper
    • 5' down to the middle dropper
    • a 7" dropper
    • 4' down to point
    • Water knot for droppers
    Flies
    • Top dropper fly : sz 16 Shipmans buzzer
    • Middle dropper : sz 14  diawl bach
    • Point fly : sz 16 bloodworm
    Use Hybrid for droppers. Designed for World competitors, it's fluorocarbon coated nylon that doesn't get weaker when wet. Wet knot strength is the variable competitors look for. It's very easy to tie unlike fluorocarbon.

    Coastal Sea Trout

    • Long Head #7 density compensated intermediate 2ips
    • Grinner knot to fly line welded loop
    9' total leader length consisting of;
    • 9' 0X Straight 'n' soft tapered leader
    Flies
    • sz 10 Ythan Terror 

    Customer's experience

    Adrian Scott Sandy Bay, Australia

    - I've been fishing with the Volition 10' 7wt for a couple of months now and I have to say it has been a fantastic rod for trout fishing out of a boat. It feels like a proper 7 weight with lots of power in the bottom half of the rod, which is great for longer casts and pulling stubborn fish up from the bottom. But the thing bends sweetly in the top half, giving great feedback and cushioning to protect your tippet.

    I sometimes hear fellow fishermen talk about using progressively using lighter and lighter rods to do the same things they used to do, like there's some kind of honour in catching the same fish in the same way on a lighter rod. Some of this has to do with the fact that rods have gotten stiffer and stiffer over the years (your old 6 weight is now re-badged as your new 4 weight, etc.), but some of it is just about a strange pissing contest about outdoing your fellow angler. What a waste of time...

    This 10' 7wt is exactly what you want to be using when you're throwing large streamers, teams of wets and heavy nymphs for trout. It's the right tool for the job. Of course you can do those things with a lighter rod and the right line, but why make things harder than they have to be? This rod has the back bone to handle that kind of fishing with ease. I'm sure it will be great fun for light saltwater use over the summer too.

    Overall I'm very impressed with the feel and the quality of this rod. I would highly recommend it for anyone looking for a powerful, yet sensitive fly rod for trout or light saltwater use.

    Best buy in a long time

    Little over a month ago i bought the Volition #7 '10. Have to be honoust, had some doubts. Sure i have seen the the vids (love them btw), but buying a rod without feeling and trying it..........
    After a short chat session with Tom decided to take the leap. Not really a leap with the money back guarantee ;-) Exited when it arrived i openend it and decided to make some time, and try it out. I was pleasantly surprised. The rod handles awesomely and makes it easy to cast distance. Compared it with other rods i have and must say i absolutly fell in love with it. Cathing the first fish with it made it possible to experience what it does. That sold it, all doubts that i had are gone. It became my first rod i use and am in love with it. My compliments on this rod ot feels and handles awesomly.
    Greetings from the Netherlands ;-)

    One of the best Fly rods on the market

    After receiving my new 10ft 7 weight Sunray Volition from Tom i was not disappointed. This rods creates the simplicity of Fly fishing at its very best, this is a true fly fishers rod that allows you to fly fish without any complications and when fitted with his line it is an extremely effective long distance casting rod. I have noticed a few changes in his rod compared to others and everything about the rods manufacture, structure and power makes this a beautiful rod to cast. False casting is now a distant memory as it is not required. This rod will do everything for you, all you have to do is allow the rod and line to work in harmony and you have one of the best set ups you will ever own. I now own a 9ft 5 weight, a 10ft 2 weight and an array of Sunray lines to compliment. Absolutely thee best rods on the planet.

    Impressive first outing

    Received my rod and short head line and had my first outing at my local water. The rod is as light as a feather and a joy to wield. I can now roll cast properly which was something that always seemed to escape me and with only a couple false casts I am getting the line out further with better presentation. Was lucky enough to hook into a fish that took me to the backing three times and the rod handled the subsequent work out admirably.
