Scott Swing // All Anadramous 

FOR ANYWAY YOU PREFER

To catch steelhead and salmon, you need to swim the fly at the right angle, the right depth, and the right speed. The right rod can help solve that puzzle.

But these are the fish of a thousand casts, so preferences also play a big role. You can fish the same fish in the same water with a single hander, a short two hander, or the very longest rods. You can fish floating line, sinking line, dry flies, wet flies, traditional swing, riffle hitch, nymph and indicator. Long belly, Skagit, Scandi. The variations are endless. We get it, so we made a series of rods that satisfy your every preference.

Swing rods were meticulously developed and are loaded with technology and attention to detail to meet those demands. Fished and tested by professional anglers and expert casters from Alaska to the Great Lakes, from Canada to Norway, and from the Pacific Northwest to the Northeast, we left no stone unturned making sure each rod was fine-tuned for its intended purpose.

Swing rods feature progressive loading actions, fast recovery speed, directional stability, and a light in hand feel, from combining finely tuned new tapers with our multi-directional, multi-modulus layups, ARC2 reinforcement, Carbon Link resin system, and the very finest components.

Breakthrough components include new titanium tangle-free stripping guides with Silicon Nitride inserts that allow casts to shoot further and help prevent tangles in mono or braid running lines. Snake Brand Universal snake guides grace the rest of the rod to round out the guide set.

We also designed a new fully milled aluminum reel seat with aggressive threads for operating with cold hands, type 3 hard coat, and specially milled reel foot pockets that securely hold current performance reels and most vintage reel feet. All new front and rear grip designs turned from Flor grade cork ensure comfort, feel, and longevity.

Like all Scott fly rods, Swing rods are hand-crafted, one at a time, in Montrose, Colorado.

Scott Swing Features:

  • Carbon Link: Our latest rods combine new precision construction techniques with our innovative new resin system to bond carbon fibers in a very dense matrix. The result? An exponentially lighter, more efficient rod that reduces casting fatigue and effort, while improving accuracy and versatility performance. So, whether it’s long bank shots with a dry, or short roll casts on your favorite nymph run, Centric rods bring together light weight, fast recovery and feel for unbridled fishing Nirvana.
  • ARC 2: Scott introduced the world to ultra-light weight unidirectional carbon fiber reinforcements over 15 years ago. Our Advanced Reinforced Carbon (ARC) adds directional stability and hoop strength while minimizing additional weight.

    Our new generation ARC is over 35% lighter and sets a new first in ultra-light multi-ply blank construction. The result is even more torsional stability with substantially lighter weight. This helps your rod track better for greater loop control and pin point accuracy.
  • ReAct: ReAct technology combines our X-Core design with a new complex materials and taper system to create a break-through in fast action rod design. Distance, control and accuracy are compromised by waves that vibrate in the rod, even after the cast has been made. Simply making the rod stiffer to stop these vibrations kills feel. ReAct counteracts energy sapping vibrations by speeding the recovery of the blank without the need to stiffen the rod with more material. This puts the feel in fast. And that’s a really good thing.
  • X-Core: Enhanced feel, incredible stability and unequalled performance. X-Core combines the industry’s leading composite technologies with cutting edge design.

    Diameter is proportional to stiffness and strength, and X-Core, or Expanded Core, technology delivers blanks that transmit feel and maintain stability better than any other design approach.

    We use fast taper mandrels with low-mass, thin-walled blanks and proprietary ARC reinforcement to create rods that have stiffness with feel, and stability with sensitivity.

    This design helps the rod come alive in your hands. It’s a superior approach to the slow taper, thick walled designs that deliver stiffness at the expense of feel.
  • Multi Modulus: Fine-tuned flex and recovery. Scott pioneered the use of multi modulus fiber lay ups in blank design. By varying the fiber tensile modulus along the length of the rod, we’re able to precisely control the stiffness and recovery speed of our blanks. The result is a rod that loads and unloads more smoothly.
  • 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.
  • Mil-Spec III: Another first, brought to you by Scott.

    Most reelseats are made with a glossy, thin, and easily marred type 2 anodize. Scratches in type 2 anodize expose the aluminum underneath, leading to worn finishes and potential for corrosion.

    Our Mil-Spec III anodize penetrates the surface of the aluminum, creating the hardest, most durable, and most corrosion resistant finish available. Mil-Spec III prevents galvanic reactions with dissimilar metals and is resistant to temperatures above 900 degrees fahrenheit.
  • 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.
