Designed for 24-27g 33' Scandi Heads / Skagits 400-450g. This rod was protoyped in Argentina over a 3 year period. Designed to cast a delicate line an extremely long way in high winds. We used this with a 33' float / hover shooting head and long flurorocarbon leader and it out fished comparable 7 weights 2-1. Simply due to the action being able to throw a genuine 7 weight shooting head and landing it like thistledown.

A rod that can throw a line an incredibly long way but still fish short and light. Common in the entire Volition range is the way the tip and mid sections feel connected. So it makes it harder to tail casts and put slack in the presentation unless it's intended. A beautifully smooth action that loads progressively the more you ask of it instead of buckling at the join between tip and mid section. Both a casters tool and a fishers go to choice. This rod is the product of all our favourite rods from over 40 years.

  • Design info

    A natural finish blank is built to exacting tolerances. Normally, blanks are sanded to remove imperfections which can lead to varying wall thickness. Then they are painted which can add weight and stiffen the blank. Making a cosmetically perfect unsanded blank is as good as it gets in blank manufacture. It allows the carbon to bend naturally and maintains the strength of the carbon. We also think it's very beautiful.

    A sensitive tip with a progressive mid section and butt. What does that mean? Total control over loop shape. Zero tip bounce on back casts. Extreme accuracy. The action is designed to help beginner / intermediate casters by maintaining tip control. For advanced casters the rod steps up a gear, engaging the butt section and allowing for good distance in wind without sacrificing accuracy.

    K series anti tangle, angled strippers reduce the angle the line travels when hauling, reducing friction and adding yards to casts. Super shaped flor cork allowing feel through your fingertips. A donwlocking reel seat locks down hard on reels, eliminating annoying side wobble and balances correctly.
