Mid flex, deep action un sanded freshwater fly rod.

Reminiscent of the Sage Xp, with a bit of Loop Cross S1 and Scott Radian thrown in, in terms of action. 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 classic silver plated reel seat locks down hard on reels, eliminating annoying side wobble. A hexagonal cordura tube complete this high end casting and fishing tool.

    Q. What lines should I use? A. Any fly line will work. However, the action, guide spacings and type of guides used are optimised for our low diameter lines. The Microslik International or Arctic Silver International is perfect for all your floating 5 weight work. Use the El Guapo for heavier stuff.
    Q. How do I maintain the rod? A. It is guaranteed for life. A wipe with a damp cloth will keep it clean. Keep the joints clear of grit and the rod bag dry. 
    Q. What is the carbon strength?A. 40 tonne.

    I bought the Volition 10' #7 blind and it exceeded all expectations, so pre-ordering the 9' #5 was a no brainer. I know it doesn't wrap till March but the site keeps requesting a review. Great brand confidence, sufficient to pre-order and cough up for not one, but two rods (pre ordered the #2 too) before they're even made is about a good a review or recommendation as any rod will ever get.
    My only concern is regarding the expanding SUNRAY range, as it means I'm gonna have to spank the overtime to get Glass, Tenkara, Spey, divorced.....etc
