SCOTT MERIDIAN FLY RODS
The all new Meridian saltwater rods build on our 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 help you quickly make accurate casts at any distance in demanding saltwater conditions. You’ll be amazed at how fast you can get the fly from your hand to the fish.
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.
Whether the boys are chasing Marlin on the Hatch 12+, Kings on the 11+ or Kahawai on the 7+ we’re confident the Hatch reels will be able to out the hurt needed to stop those fish quick smart.
The sealed drag cassette employs multi-disc stack in all models that is comprised of Rulon® and precision stamped stainless steel discs. With multi-disc drag, you are applying braking pressure and heat dispersion over several surfaces rather than one-to-one surface braking on most drag systems today. This system virtually eliminates start up inertia and stick slip problems and gives you a reel you can rely on to get the job done.
The saltwater Airflo fly lines hold the whole package together maintaining a strong hold on the fish while offering up a range of fly line options to make sure you can deliver the fly to any fish under any conditions.
Floating, sinking, sink tips and super duper fast sinkers are all covered in the range in 30-50lb braided cores so there something for everyone.
The Manic Fly Collection is getting bigger by the day and the saltwater category is as varied as our fishery.
From small anchovie flies for those selective kahawai, poppers for kings and big meaty stuff for big meaty fish there is something in there for all tastes. Built on super strong Gamakatsu hooks to ensure you stay connected when everything else is locked up.
