Building off Redington's award winning Vapen rod, the Vapen 4 Piece Black Fly Rod delivers the same all water, fast action performance in a sleek and sultry black color. Made through a collaboration between Winn Grips think golf clubs and Redington, the innovative PowerGrip abandons traditional cork handles in favor of a non slip polymer, which is designed to reduce hand fatigue after a full day of hucking big bugs, heavy nymph rigs, and weighted streamers. X Wrap graphite technology weaves carbon and graphite through the blank, reducing vibration while increasing strength and torsional stability. Carbon fiber reel seats keep the weight of the rod down for a well balanced feel and complement the black PowerGrip. Alignment dots make setting up this four piece rod quick and easy, and an included cordura rod tube protects your rod whether it's in the back of a truck, drift boat, or tied to your backpack.
