Thomas & Thomas Announces the Release of Avantt

From Thomas & Thomas:

Greenfield, MA – October 1, 2016. USA fly rod maker Thomas & Thomas is pleased to announce that Avantt series fly rods are now available for purchase in fly shops world-wide.

T&T’s proprietary StratoTherm Resin has such incredible strength and vibration dampening characteristics that it forced us to approach freshwater fly rod design in a new way. The result is the remarkably light and responsive Avantt Series. With ultra-low swing weight and lightning-fast recovery, these rods come alive in the hand.

At close range, the Avantt rods provide precise command of the fly with a delicate touch. Longer casts reveal surprising power and line speed with tight loops and excellent line control.

Key Features:

  • Fast recovery, quick dampening rod action. Four piece multi-modulus graphite blank incorporating Thomas & Thomas’ latest proprietary composites and curing process.
  • Low Friction Finish (LFF) in stealth matte blue extends casting range.
  • Titanium-frame ceramic stripping guides and Snake brand ECOating guides.
  • Powder coated aluminum rod tube with precision milled cap and collar.
  • Hand made one at a time in Greenfield, Massachusetts, USA.

The Avantt series is comprised of seven models: 8’ 6” rods in line weights 3 and 4; 9 foot rods in weights 5 through 7; and 10 foot rods in weights 4 and 5. All rods feature anodized aluminum up-locking reel seat, blue wraps with white accents, and grips of select Flor-grade cork. Priced at $825, Avantt rods are available in fly shops now.
