Orvis has redesigned its Superfine Glass rods with improved tapers that increase accuracy, yet retain the smooth and soulful casting of fiberglass. “S-2 glass is a higher-modulus material compared to standard S (structural) glass. The new Superfine tapers have been influenced by the Helios 3, resulting in noticeably thinner diameter blanks, especially in line weights 2 through 5,” says Shawn Combs, Orvis’s director of product design and development. The S-2 fiberglass still allows for easy loading, but is stronger, lighter, slightly faster, and more abrasion-resistant than previous models. Offered in six rod sizes, from a 6-foot, 6-inch 2-weight, to an 8-foot, 8-inch 8-weight, the new Superfine Glass rods are a great summer addition to your quiver, whether you’re fishing for Appalachian brook trout in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast, backpacking into the Rockies for alpine trout, or slowing down your approach for bass and redfish. Available in a matte olive blank with hard chrome double-footed snake guides, a black type III anodized aluminum reel seat with a burled hardwood insert (2- to 5-weights) or an aluminum tube insert (6- to 8-weights). Made in the U.S.A.
