I have designed and developed many fly rod series throughout my life, and I have always had a deep and concentrated motivation to find ways to improve a fly fishing rod in order to give it a purpose and a “soul”. Making a rod that casts is something I consider really easy, however making it into an “efficient fly-casting-fishing-tool” is more complicated than that.
The scorpio series is developed with the best material that is available today – a mix between 40T and 46T of the finest carbon, fused with graphene. Intergrading graphene with carbon truly affects the way a blank performs.
I have spent the last five years working on the scorpio series trying to figure out how much graphene you can or should actually use together with normal carbon to get the best result. It has been a long process to find the best recipe. But now I’m convinced I have, and I perceive the mixture we have as the perfect combination to achieve our main goal – a rod series that recovers faster than any other rod I have ever designed before. A blank that builds up more energy with less effort, and even better, when the rod is being stopped, it transfers the energy to the line with hardly any loss and with high precision…
A truly perfect “fly-casting-fishing-tool”.
The action in this rod series is very hard to describe as all actions are made individually for each blank. You can’t have the same action for a rod that is short and casts a light line weight compared to a rod that is long and casts a heavier line weight. But what I can say is that all rods are designed to activate the lower part of the blank when finding the power, AND designed to keep the top up to direct the line, no matter the size of the rod. I believe this is how rods should work to be a truly perfect “fly-casting-fishing-tool”.
Scorpio is a very classic looking rod with a touch of modern finish. The color of the blanks is black, and they are completed with high-quality epoxy coating. The wrappings and logo are copper colored.
The handles on the rods in this scorpio graphene series are all produced with our own long-lasting integrated cork composite handles; a design that makes your handle stand the test of time despite any tough circumstances it is being exposed to. All rods are also mounted with our unique interchangeable lower signature grip handle. The shape of the signature grip handle makes it much easier to control the blank, as well as to achieve both precision and distance, all of which are the keys to have success when fly fishing on any river.
Furthermore, the handle is incorporated with our own signature up-locking anodized aluminium reel seat. All rod sizes are fitted with black “Japanese Fuji K” tangle-free stripping guides and ultra-light, gun-smoke-colored shooting guides. These guides are just the best on the market for fly fishing, and an outstanding improvement when it comes to shooting lines.
The individual sections of the rod are neatly arranged in a sectional cloth bag. The flap of the soft cloth bag is equipped with a microfiber cloth for cleaning your rod’s connection points before assembly or storage. The rods in the scorpio series will be delivered in a cordura case with an inner diameter measuring 65 x 85 mm. This diameter is no coincidence … making it this size enables it to be used as a travel case. This travel case accommodates not just one, but two rods at once, making it ideal for the traveling fly fisherman.
– A cool design that really makes sense.
