These rods feature a unique, twist and lock system at the handle, which allows the user to extend the rod, up to 8 inches, in order for them to be able to tackle the water they’re faced with. Unlike other rod extension systems that are on the market, the DRIFT XL range, can be locked in place at any length along this 8-inch extension.
At the shortest length these are great rods for presenting dry flies or fishing with the popular Duo/Trio style, but once you start extending them they become less aggressive in their action, and so are also ideal for all manner of modern nymphing techniques, from close-quarters work too far off presentation in clear water.
Drift XL rods will allow you to hook and hold fish at short and medium range with very thin tippets, small dry flies and or nymphs, without fear of the hook pulling out. You can also take your time and let the rod take the strain when playing big fish in fast water, the less aggressive action will ensure every lunge is cushioned effectively.
These tactical rods feature an understated matt black finish, with black, lacquered whippings and olive highlights. The new ‘P’ cork handle, features a ‘camo’ look to ensure that it is discreet, not as bold and bright as the usual cork, in any challenging fishing situations.
They also feature a unique 20cm marker whipped the blank above the handle, in most competitions, only fish of 20cm or more are counted.
With high end cosmetics, Pac Bay guides throughout, anodised satin finish reel seat, and understated graphics these rods look as good as they perform!
