Here are the Legend Elite fly rods to the rescue. We completely redesigned this series last year to meet the demands of the most intense fresh water fly fishing applications encountered. Lighter, slim profile ferrules and stunning cosmetics are married to premium, high modulus, high strain SCV graphite blanks with carbon matte scrim and loaded with ART and IPC technologies. Legend Elites also feature SCVI graphite in the lower portion of the rod for added power and reduced weight. The result is enough space age science and American handcraftsmanship to give you a four piece rod that performs like a one piece. Freshwater models are finished in a smooth Gallatin green. Made in the USA.
