NEW! SCOTT CENTRIC 905/4 FLY ROD : 9'0", 5WT
Introducing the new Centric series fly rods. Scott put the feel in fast action rods. Now we’re taking it to the next level. Cutting edge Centric series fly rods deliver new levels of stability, recovery speed, and range, while giving anglers tons of feedback through the easy flexing tip sections and highly transmissive blanks.
These are the most efficient rods Scott has ever created. Flat, stable, high line speed loops are easily generated at any distance with minimal effort from the caster. For anglers of any skill level, these rods feel very light in the hand, are insanely accurate, and are simply a joy to fish at any distance.
Ease of roll casts and mends is next level. The ability to control loop shape and line speed at any distance give anglers wide-ranging versatility. Centric rods combine new tapers and multi-modulus lay ups with a new resin system to increase fiber density and reduce weight, and they feature our new generation ARC reinforcement for greater stability along multiple axes. New custom rolling equipment allows us to control fiber placement and density with new levels of precision. And just to top it all off, we designed new standard-setting componentry for Centric rods that redefine functionality, durability, and beauty.
Scott Centric rods are fit with Flor grade cork, new titanium stripping guides with super slick zirconia inserts, new low glare Snakebrand Universal snake guides, and a new fully milled reel seat featuring speed threads, easy grip knurling, self-indexing hoods, micarta inserts, a special Delrin lock washer, and type 3 flat black hard coat.
Centric rods retail for $895 and are available in models ranging from 8.5’ to 10.0,’ in line weights 4 to 7. All Centric rods are 4 pieces and come in an embroidered cloth bag and premium aluminum rod tube. Scott Centric rods are handcrafted in the USA from the finest materials.

I often fish on the Madison River in MT. Last Summer I encountered some very windy days and the 10 foot Sage X rod I used was not quite the match for such conditions. A couple of months ago I watched a video of a favorite New Zealand guide casting this Scott rod in high wind and landing some very athletic monster browns with aplomb. So I decided to give this rod a try. I've used this rod several times by now on both calm and windy days. The rod is very light. A seasoned angler friend tested it and he said it felt more like a 3 or 4 weight rod. I was able to make accurate casts even in windy situations with ease. Longer casts were no problem either. This is a fast action rod that won't cheat you from the experience of playing even smaller fish. Larger fish, of course, are not a problem. The tip section is "soft" enough to absorb a sudden bolt from such fish even when using a smaller ( e.g. 6X ) tippet. I'm totally pleased with this rod and can hardly wait to make use of it on the Madison River this Summer.

Man do I love my 905-4 Radian. That may be the best pure trout rod ever made...but this centric is an amazing follow-up. The performance is the same as the radian Some minor upgrades but if you have a radian, not sure it's worth the upgrade.

Fished the heck out of this rod over 2 days and can't say enough about it. I picked up the 9' 5wt, and love it's responsiveness, effortless casting, quick action and ease of simple mending. Just a superb rod for me. Most of my fishing is in Nor Cal rivers, so this is a universal rod built for this..! Reel Fly Rod was exceptional with info and support!
