The Airflo Blade series is a lightweight, fast action, high modulus weapon and is finished with high end componentry that you would normally find on a $1,000 rod.
It is an outstanding rod on its own, but a perfect 'Extra' rod to have in the boat with either a different line or different setup - ready to go.
The stability and power of the rod enables tight loops and an action that will work for you from short to very long ranges. The Blade 10' #6 is a terrific lake and big water work. And the #7 is a beast that will tame big trout, heavy lines and light saltwater fish.
The Blade 10' #6 is one of the few rods where you can power out the whole 90' line. This is an incredible rod for sinking lines fished from a boat.
Australian Champion Jon Stagg has this to say:
"I recently had the opportunity to try the Airflo 10 foot 6# Blade fly rod. My first impression was it certainly felt nice in the hand, had good fittings, was quite light but I also felt the power strait away. I decided to give it a try on a local water that holds some big strong rainbows where it would certainly be put through its paces. As a fishing rod it certainly is powerful, it handles playing fish well and loves to cast a long line so for boat fishing it is ideal. It may not become my favourite dry fly rod but with sinking lines it excels and will belt out long smooth casts effortlessly over and over again. This rod is excellent value for money and I would highly recommend it for any wet fly fishing from a boat."
Regards, JON STAGG
It is amazing how much difference a 10' rod makes in a boat or mending line on a large stream or river. You will have better control, the ability to lift a lot of line off the water and to power out huge casts.
