Scott Radian Fly Rods

Radian wins “Best new Freshwater Fly Rod” and overall “Best of Show” at IFTD 2013

The Scott Radian Series puts the “feel” in “fast.”  Inspired to create a fast action rod with greater feel and touch, Scott rod designer Jim Bartschi conceived a fly rod that generates surreal line speed through fast recovery rather than sheer stiffness.  The Radian is springy, not rigid.  Like every Scott, the Radian is fundamentally easy to cast.  Ultra-fast rods are now in vogue, but some manufacturers have lost touch with fishermen along the way.  The most powerful rods are often the least practical or enjoyable to actually fish.  By contrast, the Radian is a pure fishing tool.  Scott loyalists will immediately recognize this new family member:  by appearance, feel and performance, it is obviously a Scott.  Those who compare the Radian to other brands of their experience will find, quite simply, the best fast action fly rods they have ever fished.

Scott is perhaps the only rod maker that continues to upgrade componentry with each new fly rod series.  The Radian is the first fly rod in the world to feature the new Snake brand Universal guide, a self-lubricating snake with radiused feet.  The strippers have titanium frames, the lightest and toughest available.  Scott mills their own modified Wells grip for the series with proprietary proportions and the highest quality Portuguese cork found on any rod in the world.  Trout models are fitted with a framed burled Colorado box elder reel seat.  Saltwater and steelhead models come with a logoed anodized aluminum seat and fighting butt.  On both reel seats, the sliding hood is indexed for easy reel fitting and positive lock down.  As a fisherman, you’ll love the choices Bartschi made in finishing the Radian Series.  Action: Very Fast
