In 2011, the Wright & McGill Co. introduced what has proven to be a very popular new inshore rod series under the Capt. Blair Wiggins signature brand featuring our patented “Flats Blue” painting process. On the strength of that product line we are now introducing four new saltwater fly rods, 2 new off shore big game spinning rods and two new 3-pc. travel rods to the series.
All rods in this line feature our proven S-Curve blank technology that uses CNT (Carbon Nano Tube) resins for increased strength and weight reduction.
The Flats Blue saltwater fly rods are available in a 7, 8, 9 & 10 wt. model, all 9’ long. All are 4-pc and include a beautiful travel case.
The offshore spinning models use a split rear handle design for great balance and weight reduction. The 7’ model is rated 40-80 lbs and the 7’6” model is rated 30-60 lbs. Both use our new high density rubber handles, aluminum reel seats, zirconium guides and comfortable fighting butt.
The Flats Blue travel rods are available in both a casting and a spinning model that are 7’6” and rated 8-20 lbs. This is our most popular inshore action but this rod will be great for travel anywhere an angler is targeting the world’s most popular game fish. Each rod includes a Flats Blue travel case.
These rods are constructed using exclusive S-Curve rod blank technology and Nano Silca resins. This process combines T-Glass with high density graphite as the core of the blank. Carbon yarn, PBO fiber and glass fiber are then woven on the combination of T-Glass and high density graphite producing a blank that is super strong and has increased compression resistance. It is then wrapped by carbon tape and high density graphite to reduce cracking and to increase breaking strength.
The result is the revolutionary S-Curve rod series! These rods provide the perfect transmission of power for fighting powerful fish, enhanced torque and lifting power while still being extremely lightweight to minimize angler fatigue.
