This particular rod was very difficult to design – but when we did the last testing for this blank, we were completely and utterly overjoyed! The key words for this rod are accuracy and finesse at short distances. The scorpio 8’6” 8 grams/123grains feels ultra-light when you have it in your hand and yet it has plenty of backbone. A fun rod that makes light trout fishing a delight all day long.
