GRP2 10' SH Rods

Quick Overview

Our newest offering has quickly become our favorite. Featuring our Adaptive Full Flex Fast action, our GRP2 series rods are very responsive and accurate while maintaining a flex you can feel into the butt section for maximum feel. A 10' rod really shines through when you are standing deep enough to fill your waders in the surf and trying to keep your line off of the water before you release it 80+ feet to schooling sea run browns or stripers. And there is nothing that compares to how they single hand spey cast when paired with our new "Send It" series of shooting heads developed with Mikael Blomberg of MKB designs. 10' rods have the length to build a proper loop, less swing weight than a switch rod, and most importantly give you the ability to double haul a spey cast. This rod might just make you decide to leave your two handed rod home on your next steelhead trip.

Our GRP2 line of rods is a result of more time spent on the water than behind the desk. We wanted to produce gear that not only performed as well or better than anything else we've tested, but that was durable enough to make us feel comfortable jumping on the plane to Alaska without a backup rod. By integrating feedback from our reps, guides, and customers with what we know about rod design and our experience on the water we finally feel confident we've dialed it in with our GRP2 line.

We designed the blanks with a composite blend of intermediate and high modulus Japanese Toray Carbon to not only give increased strength, but to achieve the feel and action that is unique to these rods. They are fast and responsive when you want them to be, but forgiving as well. They are designed to perform equally well casting as they are for fighting fish. By blending carbon we achieved a wider grain window, and they are equally at home overhead casting long leaders and small dries above the bushes behind you as they are spey casting skaters and intruders for running fish.

Instead of adding dead weight by sanding and painting the blank we adjusted the taper and left the blanks unsanded. This results in 0% dead weight and an increased overall strength while decreasing overall weight. It also looks really nice! The stripping guides are black oxidized stainless steel, and the snake guides are an ultra light black oxidized stainless steel which decreases the swing weight in the upper portion of the rod. Black thread wraps with green and silver accents set the rod off, because it should look as nice as it feels, and the anodized aluminum reel seat on the 7 and 8 wt. make them saltwater worthy. The 4, 5, and 6 wt rods feature a rosewood burl reel seat which is not recommended for use in salt water unless you regularly rinse your gear.
