Guidelines next-level nano technology fly rods.
The NT8 fly rod series represents the new premium segment of salmon and sea trout rods made by Guideline. NT-8 rod blanks are made of highly responsive, high modulus IM8 carbon fiber featuring a special nano tube resin for increased strength. This material composition results in blanks with exceptional performance and are considered to be the strongest and yet lightest rods produced by Guideline to date.
The action of the blanks presents itself as deep loading and medium-fast with extremely quick recovery and a furious backbone. When casting the NT8 it quickly becomes obvious that the rod operates with a wide bandwidth of power potential. The rod steadily increases line speed with increasing input, never gives up and always does what its asked for. Neither precise casts out of the rod tip nor ´long bombs´ utilizing the full potential of the blank present a problem to the NT-8. Lifting off long lines, generating high line speeds and forming accurate anchors when Spey casting is where the NT-8 is at home – dynamically and with ease. Self-explanatory that these rods work great with heavy sinking lines and tips. Due to the deep loading action the NT-8 fits a broad range of casting styles and line types.
NT8 nano tube fly rods come in a satin charcoal finish with ultra light anodized titanium single-leg guides and Fuji KW stripping guides. Finest 4A Portuguese cork handles with sturdy composite cork caps make up for a premium grip. It’s needless to say that the stylish Guideline custom made reel seat locks your reel tight and secure. All NT8 rods feature a 6-piece construction for easy traveling without inconveniences. Delivered in a thick, protective air-mesh rod bag and a lightweight rod tube.
Recommendation: The NT8 Switch rod is a true two handed rod - just a little bit shorter. You can enjoy the high fun factor of this rod and its impressive performance when fishing for large Rainbow Trout or predatory Asp, as well as on a small Salmon stream or when fishing for Sea Trout on the river.
