TOREON® technology combines a medium-fast action, high recovery with progressive flex, allowing for high line speeds with simultaneous sensitivity and feedback in casting over all distances. Short casts succeed precisely from the tip section of the rod, while the lower section brings power to the cast at longer distances. The medium fast to fast blanks harmonize perfectly with modern, slightly overweighted flying lines and offer a performance that you would not expect in this price range!
With its two-handed models, the Kite series covers the vast majority of applications in the medium to heavy spey range. So whether it's targeting silvery Atlantic salmon in spring, steelhead in the Pacific Northwest, or nighttime sea trout in the river, the Kite double-handed rods give you incredible performance for an affordable price. With their balanced action, the rods serve a variety of different line systems: lighter Skandi shot heads can be cast precisely with tight loops out of the tip, while heavier Skagit heads allow the rod to work a little deeper and effectively deliver heavy flies or fast-sinking tips to the target.
The construction of the blanks is well thought out and leaves hardly anything to be desired within this price range. The sanded, carbon gray carbon fiber blank is fitted with sturdy single foot guides for reduced swing weight. Each rod section has been individually marked and equipped with alignment dots. A classy, down-locking aluminum reel seat with double lock nut holds your reels wobble-free and balanced, and blends seamlessly with the nice spey cork handle that fits perfectly in your hands.
In short, it's a great addition to an already wide-ranging rod series that will put a big smile on the faces of beginners and advanced anglers alike, and will make anyone's entry into the spey-world much more accessible.
