Scott Centric Fly Rod
Scott Centric Fly Rods are here!
The Centric Fly Rod is the brand new Radian replacement from Scott, and have arrived just in time for our Trout Season here in Australia.
We have limited stock here at the moment, so please call Darren if the model you are after is showing as sold out..
Introducing the new Centric series fly rods. Scott put the feel in fast action rods. Now they are taking it to the next level.
Cutting edge Centric series fly rods deliver new levels of stability, recovery speed, and range, while giving anglers tons of feedback through the easy flexing tip sections and highly transmissive blanks.
These are the most efficient rods Scott has ever created. Flat, stable, high line speed loops are easily generated at any distance with minimal effort from the caster.
For anglers of any skill level, these rods feel very light in the hand, are insanely accurate, and are simply a joy to fish at any distance.
Ease of roll casts and mends is next level. The ability to control loop shape and line speed at any distance give anglers wide ranging versatility.
Centric rods combine new tapers and multi-modulus lay ups with a new resin system to increase fiber density and reduce weight, and they feature Scott's new generation ARC reinforcement for greater stability along multiple axes. New custom rolling equipment allows Scott to control fiber placement and density with new levels of precision.
And just to top it all off, Scott designed new standard-setting componentry for Centric rods that redefine functionality, durability, and beauty.
Scott Centric rods are fit with Flor grade cork, new titanium stripping guides with super slick zirconia inserts, new low glare Snakebrand Universal snake guides, and a new fully milled reel seat featuring speed threads, easy grip knurling, self-indexing hoods, micarta inserts, a special Delrin lock washer, and type 3 flat black hard coat.
Centric rods are available in models ranging from 8.5’ to 10.0,’ in line weights 4 to 7. All Centric rods are 4 pieces and come in an embroidered cloth bag and premium aluminum rod tube.
Centric rods are handcrafted in the USA from the finest materials, and are only available from specialty Fly Shops.
Scott's new generation ARC is over 35% lighter and sets a new first in ultra-light multi-ply blank construction.
The result is even more torsional stability with substantially lighter weight. This helps your rod track better for greater loop control and pin point accuracy.
A great casting rod also needs a firm foundation for a reel. Centric features a new, fully-milled reel seat combining speed threads, easy grip knurling, and self-indexing hoods, so it’s just as easy to take off a reel as it is to put one on. A special Delrin lock washer (that cool red thing) insures rock solid seating to eliminate reel vibration and increase the transmission of what you feel—cast after cast— strike after strike.
Most reelseats are made with a glossy, thin, and easily marred type 2 anodise. Scratches in type 2 anodise expose the aluminum underneath, leading to worn finishes and potential for corrosion.
Scott's Mil-Spec III anodise penetrates the surface of the aluminum, creating the hardest, most durable, and most corrosion resistant finish available. Mil-Spec III prevents galvanic reactions with dissimilar metals and is resistant to temperatures above 900 degrees fahrenheit.
Rod Models in more detail
Light, crisp, and delightful at close to medium ranges. This rod forms laser-like loops effortlessly making it very accurate even with long leaders. The ability to compress the loop very tight allows for longer range or windy conditions fishing when called for.
Grain weight range: 115-130
Fantastic line speed and stability with tons of feel. This is the rod for long 6X leaders, small spinners, and pin-point accuracy. It has plenty of power for nymph rigs or terrestrials married to finesse for keeping fish attached to super light tippets and tiny hooks.
Grain weight range: 120-135
Effortless control best describes the Centric 905/4. This rod easily generates blistering fast tight loops all the way to gentle open loops. The ability to control loop shape and line speed at all distances makes for a true do it all trout rod. This is not a nymphing 5 weight that fishes dries so-so, or a dry fly 5 weight that you can muscle through a day of nymphing. This one excels at almost all techniques and set ups. It’s also effortless to roll cast, single hand spey, and mend.
Grain weight range: 140-155
Easy going power best describes the 906/4. From big foam hoppers, to double flies and shot under an indicator, to streamers, the rod handles them smoothly and with minimal effort from the angler. No struggles with this one in picking up long lengths of line, or the more gaudy rigs we attach to the end of our lines. Perfect NZ rod.
Grain weight range: 160-185
Same as 906/4, but with the addition of a fighting butt.
The ultimate tool for streamers, bass bugs, or any time big fish want a big meal. According to Scott, this rod may be one of the most fun to cast in the whole series. The combination of lightness, power, and responsiveness make it effortless to drive out heroic casts. It also makes this rod easy to cast all day when drifting alongside the river bank.
Grain weight range: 185-210
