Scott announces the new Meridian series of saltwater fly rods. Fastest to the fish.
Meridian rods build on Scott’s award winning ReAct technology to bring you a series of saltwater rods that are remarkably light, and generate exceptional line speed and power. Using increased recovery speed rather than stiffness to more efficiently transfer energy, Meridian rods have tons of feel in close and the line speed and power to quickly make accurate casts at long distance in demanding saltwater conditions.
These rods are ‘fastest to the fish’ which can make the difference between opportunity and success on the flats. Meridian rods get the fly from your hand to the fish with the fewest number of false casts by quickly generating very high line speed, compressing the line loop, and recovering quickly.
Meridian rods are fit with newly designed components that defy harsh saltwater environments. Scott designed a new reel seat milled from aircraft grade aluminum, featuring self-indexed slide hoods, extra deep knurling to easily turn lock rings with wet hands, type 3 mil-spec hard coat in non-reflective flat black, and line weight engravings for quick rod identification in boat racks.
The new fighting butt shape and transitional check ring help to quickly shed line if it gets caught on the butt by reducing sharp angles that can trap line.
Stripping guides feature SiC rings in full titanium frames and Recoil nickel titanium snake guides for low friction and corrosion free performance.
Flor grade cork grips are turned to Scott’s modified wells shape in a saltwater appropriate length and diameter for remarkable comfort and power application.
These rods will truly last and perform in the salt even under the rigors of guiding year around. Scott focused on every detail so you could focus on the fish.
Meridian rods are available in the following lengths and line weights. MSRP $865.00. Available 7/20/15.
