Winner Best New Fly Rod @ EFTTEX 2015
Just like you wouldn’t pull out your driver when you need your 7 iron, the MOD is optimised for the distances and scenarios most often encountered by the trout angler. Thoughtfully crafted with contemporary line designs, fly patterns, and angling styles in mind, the MOD is a modern interpretation of a moderate action specific for trout fisheries. Designed between the deep loading CIRCA and fast action ONE, the MOD excels at measured distances to the short game, delivering delicate presentations with pin-point accuracy.
Designed and handcrafted on Bainbridge Island, the MOD features all the lightweight, strength, responsiveness, and accuracy benefits of our proprietary Konnetic Technology®.
I’ve been thinking about this rod for quite some time now, it was conceived as I fished smaller to medium sized trout streams,” says Sage chief rod designer Jerry Siem. “Konnetic® has made it possible, and it’s quickly become a favorite of our testing team. I like to compare it to the short game in golf, where you need an accurate presentation with a delicate touch. The MOD is optimized for those distances and scenarios.”

The all new Meridian saltwater rods build on Scotts award winning ReAct technology to bring you a series of saltwater rods that are remarkably light, and generate exceptional line speed and power.
Using increased recovery speed rather than stiffness to more efficiently transfer energy, Meridian rods help you quickly make accurate casts at any distance in demanding saltwater conditions. You’ll be amazed at how fast you can get the fly from your hand to the fish.
Meridian rods are fit with newly designed components that defy harsh saltwater environments. Scott designed a new reel seat milled from aircraft grade aluminum, featuring self-indexed slide hoods, extra deep knurling to easily turn lock rings with wet hands, type 3 mil-spec hard coat in non-reflective flat black, and line weight engravings for quick rod identification in boat racks.
The new fighting butt shape and transitional check ring help to quickly shed line if it gets caught on the butt by reducing sharp angles that can trap line.
Stripping guides feature SiC rings in full titanium frames and Recoil nickel titanium snake guides for low friction and corrosion free performance.
These rods will truly last and perform in the salt even under the rigors of fishing year around. Scott focused on every detail so you could focus on the fish.
The Archipelago Series is a high performance rod developed as a "tool" to assist the angler in achiving their goals. They are not simply "hero sticks" like most overly stiff rods that are heavily marketed today.
The Archipelago Series (like all Clutch Rods) are designed and built as "tools". Unlike their peers, they are all 100% Splined, therefore providing the angler with pin point accuracy. They have Titanium RECOIL snake guides that reduce weight and increases dampening resulting in a rod that is light in the hand, can be casted all day and will recover quickly after every fly delivery. Not to mention that our cork and composite grips are second to none!
The Archipelago is a High Performance Fishing Tool built with the angler in mind.
Sure...throwing 120' of line on the lawn looks great, but we want you as an angler to have a weapon that does it all...and does it well!
