PIKESABER - 10 Weight 9'00" 4 Piece Specialist PIKE Fly Rod "The PIKESABER is the Pike Fly Rod that all others will be judged by". That is the claim that we made for this rod when we unleashed it onto an unsuspecting market over three years ago. In the time that it has been available, those claims have not only become reality, they have been surpassed. The way that the rod has been received has been nothing short of amazing; to quote Brad Bohen, the "Afton Angler" and Musky King, "The PIKESABER is now my all-time-favourite #1 Musky-Stick! I'm fully impressed with the full range of PIKESABER attributes....constuction, cosmetics, performance - power, weight, loading, sensitivity, fish-handling you name it, it does it in spades!"   Brad Bohen - Musky Country Outfitters - Zero 2 Hero -----------------------------------------------------------------------This rod has been designed by anglers for anglers, and this is evident in the look, the feel and the handling.This pike fly rod is a delight to use. It is both light and strong and throws large pike flies with ease. The unground blank means that the rod is finished in an uncompromised, "as-manufactured" state, which retains maximum strength within the blank walls and ensures that all of the materials used in construction are doing their job properly. The spiral wrap is also unadulterated, which defies torsion building up within the blank, and so is the hard-baked resin outer coating, which maximises durability of the finish and length of life. No varnish to flake off! To Quote Dave 'McFluffchucker' Lyndsay - "So all in all this rod has been very well thought out by pike fly anglers and they have come up with probably the best pike fly rod on the market at a great price. It really doesn't matter if you're looking for an entry level rod or stepping up to the next level this rod will be the only rod you will ever need, and at under 200 pounds UK this rod is far better than rods costing 4 times that much. I really cannot fault it in anyway , if you're a pike fly angler you really need to own one of these." --------------------------------------------------------------------- The FUJI butt guide and stripping ring are S.I.C. lined with three legs, and provide smooth line control when bent into a fish. The stainless steel oversized intermediate guides and hayfork tip ring are also of top quality, and have been proved by many years of research to be the best configuration for fly rods, enabling the angler to cast maximum distance with minimum effort. All of the whippings on the rod are protected by ultra-hard resins, and as you would expect on a rod of this calibre, the finish is second to none. In short, it is as "bomb-proof" as you can get. The raised profile of the spiral wrap allows the fly lines to slip through the rings without ‘sticking' to the rod like it does on smooth ground blanks, especially on the back-cast, where the line comes into contact with the blank. With PIKESABER's spiral blank profile, more line can be released on the back-cast which loads the rod better, enabling the angler to cast further, and quicker, than ever before. This is something we have yet to see in any of our competitors. The unique aluminium fighting butt allows the pike fly fisherman to exert maximum pressure on the fish, whilst still keeping full control of the rod. Playing pike for too long is something that pike fly rods have been criticised for in the past, as an exhausted pike can take a long while to recover, or even die in extreme circumstances. With the PIKESABER the pike fly angler can control the pike without needlessly tiring it, as a full battle-curve is not going to stress the blank or the fittings in any way. The ultra-powerful parabolic fighting curve is emphasized by the four-piece design, and subdues big fish very quickly and effortlessly, without losing any of the feel of a genuine fly fishing rod. This rod is not a poker, it is a genuine fishing rod that is a real pleasure to use.The extra stiffness and rapid recovery of the unground blank allows the pike angler to punch out heavy pike flies with big fly lines into gale-force winds with ease. The turnover is superb, and forms tight loops on the back-cast, and the rod feels very light at only 140 grams. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Ken Capsey on the PIKESABER -   "The PIKESABER is a work horse and I love it! If I had one rod to fish the rest of my pike life with this is the one!" ----------------------------------------------------------------- Designed to cast a #10 weight line, it will quite happily throw a #11 or even a #12. Don't be scared, it will handle some abuse! Supplied complete with a cloth rod bag and a nice strong, fabric-covered tube with zip closure at one end. At just 33 1/2" long, it is extremely practical for the travelling angler and will fit in most overhead lockers on aircraft. The rod is 9 feet in length, and breaks down into 4 sections. The butt section is 30 1/2" long, and the other three sections are uniform at 28 1/2" long. The complete rod weighs 144 grams, or just under five ounces.
