Scott Tidal Series saltwater fly rods are designed “to make the hard way easier.” Overbuilt with hard core components like a self-indexing anodized aluminum reel seat, Super quality cork and extra large guides, the real magic of the Tidal Series lies in the casting action. X-Core Technology stabilizes the blank for maximum efficiency in the recovery. In test-casting the Tidal Series, we found a notable “springy” action that finishes the cast with terrific power, like a strong follow through with a golf club or tennis racket. Beautiful casting loops come naturally with an ordinary casting stroke, so the Tidal Series easily casts large flies in the wind, even with a long leader. Don’t let the modest price tag fool you: the Tidal Series will impress anglers of every ability. Rod Designer Jimmy Bartschi jokes, “As fly fishermen, we always do things the hard way. We designed the Tidal Series to make the hard way easier.”
The Tidal Series was prototyped by the Scott Pro Staff in the Florida Keys and has been fished hard by industry friends, factory employees and test subjects from the general public. The conclusion is unanimous: a Scott Tidal Series rod will add distance and reduce false casting in the hands of almost any angler.
