The Salar S3 two-handed rod from Frödin is the latest Salar series from Mikael Frödin. A unique two-handed rod that creates excitement on salmon rivers around the world.
Mikael Frödin is known for its high quality flies and tying materials. More than 20 years after the SALAR rods, which were declared a cult and designed by Mikael Frödin, the Scandinavian presents the SALAR S3 rod series. Mikael Frödin is proud to work with the best rod manufacture in the world and use the latest high-tech materials. The result is extremely high quality salmon rods with a strong kick that provides plenty of power when casting. The series covers all possible salmon fishing conditions, from the smallest clear river and a floater to the big river with high water levels and the use of heavy sink tips.
Mikael has always been extremely picky about everything from fly tying materials to reels and rods. You can see that once again with the Salar S3 series! His experience in rod building and his extensive knowledge coupled with the know-how of some of the best casters in Europe, have resulted in the legendary Salar rod once again receiving a worthy successor. Working with top rod designers, Frödin has developed state-of-the-art, high-tech rods through a mix of the best Japanese and Korean materials, manufactured by what many consider to be the best rod factory in the world.
All Salar S3 two-handed rods are 6-piece, making them an ideal choice for travel. The handy size makes it possible to easily transport the salmon rods in a suitcase. The action of the blank is not affected by the division! The Deep Burgundy colored matte blank offers a classic, timeless look with its tone-on-tone wraps and is equipped with very high-quality components. This includes a top quality ergonomic cork handle and a silver colored reel seat to keep your salmon reel securely in place. The final touch is a classic butt made of sturdy high-tech foam in bright red, as we have come to expect from Salar rods. The rings are titanium stripping guides and hard-chrome Snake guides. Here, too, Mikael has placed the highest value on quality!
