Scott Radian rods are the ultimate mix of power and feel. Radian rods are ready to launch long casts across big rivers but are sensitive enough for close range dry fly work. They are a very nice rod for medium to large rivers, most lake applications, and light saltwater. We think they are a great all-purpose rod for trout or steelhead and salmon as they have the versatility necessary for tiny dry flies one minute to big streamers the next.
Scott Radian rods are extremely lightweight. They are constructed of the highest quality components and carbon fiber blanks. Each Radian rod is also beautifully crafted and visually stunning. Rods without a fighting butt feature wooden reel seat inserts made of burled box elder with anodized aluminum reel seat hardware. Rods with a fighting butt have quality anodized aluminum reel seats. The Radian uses top-of-the-line guides and top grade Portuguese cork handles.
All Scott Radian rods come with an aluminum rod tube, cloth rod sock, and Scott's original owner lifetime warranty.
Here is what Scott has to say about their Radian rods:
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.
