The next wave of saltwater fly rod is here. The mid-priced Scott Wave fly rod was purposely designed for the angler wanting power, tight controlled loops in windy conditions, and turning over larger flies with precise accuracy in rod design. Perfect for the saltwater angler targeting bonefish to tarpon, the Scott Wave delivers performance, high line speeds, durability, and accuracy without the hefty price tag. However, not just for the saltwater angler, the Scott Wave will benefit freshwater anglers casting sinking lines, chasing carp, or hooking smallmouth with large wind-resistant flies, like deer hair poppers.
The Scott Wave 12wt is the preferred tarpon rod of this series. Chasing a 100lb plus tarpon requires a rod to present a fly with accruate precision. Second, a tarpon rod should act like a shock absorber with a softer tip section, but require the blank to be durable and long lasting. Finally the rod must have reserve power in the butt section to lift and land the tarpon quickly. The Scott Wave 12wt taper delivers all the necessary technology for anglers wanting to land a tarpon of a lifetime.
The intricate beauty of the Scott Wave is displayed by its stunning black anodized aluminum and blue woven carbon fiber reel seat with matching guide thread wraps up the blank. As with all Scott rods, the Scott Wave is handcrafted in Montrose, CO with top grade components like SiC stripping guides, custom machined reel seat, super grade corks and a beautiful natural, unsanded finish. Simply put, the Wave rods are the greatest performance value Scott has ever created.
