Glass fibre has been largely ignored over the past twenty years in favor of lighter and faster carbon fibres. Carbon is a superior material for lots of rod construction purposes, but not all.
Adding glass to the mix gives a rod incredible durability and resistance to impact - making it ideal for the toughest fishing on back-country rivers and streams. Mixing glass to carbon creates an easy loading, smooth action, with controlled, well-dampened recovery.
The easy loading nature of these rods makes them sensational. They allow short range, controlled presentation with the absolute minimum of fly line beyond the tip ring.
