Scott F Series // Fiberglass Rods
Scott F Series // Fiberglass Rods
HIGH PERFORMANCE, PURE FUN
Our earliest rods grew from fiberglass roots. In fact, when Scott Fly Rods started in the early 70’s, graphite fly rods didn’t even exist.
We put our name on the map in those early years creating high performance, multi piece glass fly rods for anglers venturing into the mountains to catch wild trout in cool crystalline waters. Anglers were blown away by the smooth performance of our industry-first 5 piece fly rod, and by our full range of multi piece light line glass rods.
We’ve been making fiberglass fly rods ever since. There’s a good reason we continue to design and handcraft glass fly rods-it’s because we think glass is the best material available for casting at very close range, for enjoying the feel of small fish, and having a good old time.
With the all new F Series, we brought together new slimmer tapers with E-glass and our redesigned hollow internal ferrule to set a new standard for smooth, deep flexing rods. And, even though you can cast them a lot farther, these rods are optimized to cast beautiful accurate loops under 20 feet.
By carefully controlling the distribution of mass and stiffness, we created very light fiberglass rods that are stable and form sweet loops with just a few feet of line out of the tip. That way you can accurately cast into the next plunge pool or along overgrown banks even on creeks you can step across. That’s not something your graphite rods can do easily.
We paired that performance with best in class components like Snake Brand Universal snake guides, Flor grade cork grips, titanium SiC strippers, and CNC milled reel seats, and then added our little touches like measuring wraps and alignment dots. We didn’t miss a detail. After all, there’s a lot of history and pride in F Series rods.
So, if you’re in to fishing small pristine waters, and jewel like wild fish, treat yourself to the ultimate fishing tools-F Series rods from Scott-High performance, handcrafted, and pure fun.
Scott F Series Features:
Natural Finish: Walk down a rod rack at your local fly shop and you'll notice something different about Scott rods. Like everything we do, the Scott Natural Finish is all about making your rod lighter, more durable, and better performing.
Most other rods on the shelf are run through a belt sander, tearing away the outside power fibers of the blank and introducing variance. Inadvertent flatspotting during the sanding process will weaken a blank, and blanks are designed with a margin of error to accommodate for oversanding. After the blank is sanded, a glossy paint is applied to add shelf appeal.
Natural finish blanks aren't subjected to the rip through the sanding belt, nor are they covered with heavy paint to add pop in your fly shop. We're firm believers in the natural beauty of graphite. A natural finish blank is built to exacting tolerances. Scott's advanced resin systems permeate the blank, leaving a durable finish that will stand up to years of abuse.
- E Glass: Scott’s proprietary E glass is an innovative highly unidirectional glass and epoxy composite that helps us continue to advance fiberglass rod design. Our glass rods are light, responsive, and exhibit the highest recovery speeds in fiberglass rods. Now you get all the feel of glass with high performance.
Recoil: Patented nickel titanium snake guides will never rust, and are made from 'memory metal' so always return to their original shape even after being crushed or bent.
Titanium: With the highest strength to weight ratio and corrosion resistance of any metal, our titanium guide frames let you worry about the fishing, and not about the salt.
When we set out to build the best fly rods, we knew that we had to use the best components. We use guides made from materials chosen for their strength, lightness, and corrosion resistance. Frames are made from pure titanium - 65% lighter than equivalent stainless steel guides, and 100% corrosion resistant. Silicon carbide (SiC) rings are diamond polished to create the smoothest surface of any ceramic material. Just like our frames, SiC is resistant to abrasion, corrosion, and thermal shock. Why would you want guides made from anything else?
- Universal Guides: These new, patented, American made guides from Snake Brand feature radius feet which conform to the blank, have the best corrosion resistance, and even have a self-lubricating finish to shoot line farther.
6224 6'2" 2wt 4 Piece: The deepest bending F Series is perfect for whisper light dry fly presentations and protecting very light tippet. A marvel that bends to the cork yet is so smooth and stable.
5834 5'8" 3wt 4 Piece: The Wee One. Don’t let its little size fool you. This rod is zippy and forms tight loops at close range for precise casts in tight spots. Our favorite rod for micro water and long hikes.
6634 6'6" 3wt 4 Piece: If we had to have one glass rod to do it all, this is the one. A perfect balance of quick loading at short range, line speed and feel. It can handle just about any fly size typically fished in small creeks and back country waters. Casts are as smooth as silk with this little gem.
7235 7'2" 3wt 5 Piece: Our 5-piece glass rod is perfect for those venturing into the most remote creeks and lakes. It packs full performance into a 18 inch tube. This rod is long enough for reaching out farther into lakes and short and light enough to cast just a couple of feet of line into the next pocket on tiny creeks.
7244 7'2" 4wt 4 Piece: When you need a bit more power for larger flies and larger fish, our 4 weight glass rod gets the job done with ease. It’s our choice for small streamers, nymph rigs and big dry dropper set ups.
