Our goal was to create a fly rod that would exceed anglers expectations of fly rod performance without shocking their bank accounts. Welcome to the Generation II S-Curve blank.
Generation II S-Curve rod blank technology is a derivative of the original S-Curve blank that has proven over and over that strength, sensitivity and performance does not have to be followed by lots of zeros.
We’ve taken the original S-Curve design and made it lighter and thinner by incorporating a higher modulus graphite core and reinforcing layer into the rod construction. Inside we’ve woven PBO fibers, which are two times stronger than Kevlar, with carbon yarn and T-Glass to add strength and performance to every blank. Nano resins are used as the binding agent increasing comparable strength by over 20% to standard resins.
The result is a fly rod that responds instantly to the requirements of a demanding angler. Accurate and precise at short distances, but possessing plenty of power in reserve when conditions call for power, line control and fish fighting strength.
As good as the new Generation II S-Curve blanks are, we didn’t stop there. We’ve broken new ground in the fly rod market with a handle made of high-density rubber that dramatically improves the main point of contact that the angler has with the fly rod. These new handles are more comfortable than cork, last longer and are not slippery when wet. Tradition may call for cork, but when performance calls for improvement in materials and design, Wright & McGill always leads the way.
Every rod is beautifully finished with our unique 7-layer paint process that adds a custom, one-of-a-kind touch to your new fly rod. We added high-end components like zirconium stripping guides, stainless snake foot guides and a durable aluminum reel seat. And when we realized that the only thing missing was a beautiful travel case to protect your rod everywhere you go, we added that too. All rods in the W&M Generation II S-Curve line are made in four pieces and include a durable rod tube painted to match your rod using the same custom, 7-layer process.
Each Generation II S-Curve rod is protected by Wright & McGill’s limited lifetime warranty.
