388 – Delicate presentations, thin leaders and good precision. These are the words that best describe this rod. If spooky fish on small waters is your aim then this is the perfect tool.
490 – Just like its little brother (388) the 490 is about presentation, thin leaders and precision. A smooth tempo is what the rod likes. Although, if some distance is needed it has the resources.
590MF – This rod loves a smooth casting stroke and when given it will present your imitation as it is supposed to. This rod is dedicated for presentation, thin leaders and precision. When fighting your fish you will feel it all the way down to the cork.
590F – This is a very versatile all round 5 weight rod. It prefers a little higher tempo and wants you to feed it with line. If tight loops and precision at distance is your game, this is the one for you. Dries or smaller streamers, the choice is yours.
596 – Large imitations on still waters, sinking lines, dries at long distances, streamers or heavy nymph rigs. Under or overhand casting the 596 excels on all of the above and will just not give in. It can hold loads of line in the air and will not disappoint on shorter distances.
696 – Streamers, large dries and distance, words that fit well with the 696. The rod really excels when you have to push through wind and it absolutely loves to go toe to toe with big trout.
The introduction of our new Opti K2 single handed fly rod range is a direct result of the success of the K2 dedicated euro – nymphing rod and the demand for a lightweight trout specific series of rods. During extensive testing worldwide our aim was to provide a lightweight responsive action fly rod built for those specific conditions that our angling community are looking for. Finished in a deep gunmetal grey the K2 series of rods are designed for the discerning trout angler.
