The original TACTICAL rods were developed from the Furtive Rod blanks created by master European rod builder Alain Ourtilani. Designed using innovative materials researched by the Institute of Technology Lausanne, REC components and the profound fishing know-how of world champions Pascal Cognard and Jérôme Brosutti.
Each TACTICAL rod length / line weight has its own personality offering optimum performance so it was natural to continue development of blanks that would increase speed and accuracy. The truth is that each individual fly fisherman has his or her own style and casting ability, so answering the call for a complimentary range of faster and slightly more responsive rods for short and medium distances added new long and short rods to the classics.
Matt finish blanks, alignment dots and a slick reel seat were also requests delivered by the introduction of the TACTICAL LX Series. The most recent addition to this range is the 10 foot 6-weight – a soon to be classic that's equally at home on big-water rivers as it is on the open waters as it is on stillwater lakes and reservoirs.
