NEW! TFO AXIOM II X 590-4 FLY ROD : 5WT, 9'0", 4PC
The Axiom II-X was designed for the intermediate to advanced fly angler seeking to maximize accuracy at distance. Based on the fast action of our renowned TiCrX, we used our highest modulus material and Axiom technology to redefine performance in an extremely powerful fly rod. Unlike other “stiff” rods, the Axiom II-X delivers both the energy necessary for long casts and the incredible tracking and recovery which results in accuracy at distance. If it comes down to one cast, one perfect long cast, this is the fishing tool to do the job.
The 5wt 9'0" is the powerful western dry fly rod and nymphing rod. With the added power in the tip, the Axiom 5wt will deliver the 50ft dry fly with ease. With a powerful flex, many anglers will enjoy the feel and power for streamer fishing with larger articulated streamers and sinking lines. This is the bank to bank rod, streamers anglers are looking for!
TFO’s patented and exclusive Axiom technology embeds a double-helix of Kevlar within the blank. The superior tensile strength of the Kevlar acts to buttress the rod’s carbon fiber matrix in compression. The result is that Axiom series fly rods stabilize faster and smoother, absorb shock better and comfortably tolerate over-loading. The angler benefits because Axiom technology virtually eliminates the ability to over power the rod when casting. Bottom line – whether you carry more line in the air or push the rod to the limit, you won’t feel any mushiness – What you will feel is line ripping out of your hand as it launches.The Axiom II-X series delivers exceptional casting performance and efficiency that when combined with TFO’s no-fault lifetime warranty make them the perfect choice when distance and accuracy are the price of a life time trophy.
Picked up this TFO Axiom II-X 5wt in Jan and have been waiting until Spring to break it out. Finally, took her for a cast this weekend on the Provo River. She is paired with a Lamson Lightspeed G5 and an Airflow Superflow Power Taper line. If looks could kill! Light and balanced. Casts beautifully. Landed two brown trout, with one in the 15-18 inch range. Eager to get back out again. Value for the price is hard to beat. One of the reasons I went with the Axiom is that the 5wt comes with a fighting butt. Only two minor gripes: TFO should have included a hook keeper and alignment dots. Hence the reason for 4 stars instead of 5.
