Scott Fly Rod

Scott Fly Rod Radian Fly Rod



Until now, you’ve had to choose between a rod with power and line speed, or a rod with touch and feel. But thanks to Scott, those days are over. Fast and Feel have finally come together.

So, how’d we do it? We dramatically increased recovery speed with our new ReAct technology. By minimizing energy- sapping vibrations, ReAct creates fast action, high line speed rods with all the nuance and feel of a presentation rod.

Now, roll casts to a tricky seam, and short, delicate casts with fine 6X leaders are just as easy as long distance streamer deliveries to the opposite bank. And after the cast, when you need extended fishability, Radian rods give you incredible mending abilities and tippet protection without sacrificing the authoritative hook setting and fish fighting power you expect from a fast action rod.

But, it’s more than advanced technology that make the Radian so amazing. Check out the components and workmanship. There isn’t a finer production rod in existence. Features like titanium framed SiC stripping guides, custom reel seats with burled box elder spacers, the very top grade Portuguese cork, and the new patented Universal snake guides from American maker Snake Brand round out the most fully loaded rods to ever grace a rod rack. Each and every Radian is handcrafted start to finish in our shop in Montrose, Colorado by anglers who know fly rods. Find out just how satisfying your fishing becomes when you get Fast with Feel, and start fishing a Radian.

Details "Good fast rod."

The Radian is probably the best all around rod Scott has made to date. Its a great rod for folks with a fast casting stroke. Powerful in the wind and capable of casting all size flies accurately at any distance. That said, its performance with nymphs and streamers while good was not the best. I think the powerful tip in the radian inhibits the feel a bit. Maybe just a personal thing. Fit a... Read Entire Review

Details "Best in class"

I have the Radian in a 5 wt. Best all around trout rod out there. Has lots of power and is still accurate from 20-75'.

Details "Money well spent"

I have been fishing the 9 ft 6wt for about 4 months now. I test-cast a Winston B3X and Sage One side by side with the Radian twice for a pretty good amount of time. Grateful for the patience of the fly shop rep. The Radian was the perfect balance of all the things I liked in the Winston and Sage. Great at casting line at a distance but easy to dial in at short shots as well. Sensitive wit... Read Entire Review

Details "Perfect trout rod"

Perfect trout rod. Powerful and accurate, casts anything. Beautifully made and finished. No regrets. The Radian casts standard wt. line just fine too. I actually use Rio Gold, contrary to most using a half size heavy line. Works for me anyway.

Details "The best of all worlds!!!"

I can't believe how much I love fishing this new rod from Scott. I had the privilege of casting this rod at the IFTD show in Vegas where it won all of the awards that you're heard about. There, I found that Scott has taken an artistic and innovative approach to popular fast action rod market. The Radian really does an amazing job of being very fast, versatile, and sensitive...all at the same tim... Read Entire Review
