Let’s start with the blank. Our IM12 graphite is made out of 46 million modulus carbon fiber with a helical core construction bonded by Nano-Resin. This makes a blank that is both fast and light. For the guides, we called in our friends at Fuji to supply light weight guides in both hard chrome and titanium alloy. Dual Fuji’s Alconite stripping guides allow your line to shoot smoothly through the rod and to your target. The reel seats are made from anodized aluminum, which not only make them resistant to corrosion, it continues the weight loss philosophy that would have Richard Simmons “sweating it” in the river next to you. The grips are made from premium grade cork and come in half or full wells… who doesn’t like FRESH CORK!?!
... and this applies to you how?
Fish-ability and cast-ability are two of the most overused, yet least understood words spoken by fly-fishers today. We hate to take multiple rods to the water. The reality is, we tend to leave and forget them (Call it a surprise present for anglers we don’t know). Yampa Rods are all-around rods. The fast action of these rods allow you to sling chunky streamers and nymph rigs, but the supple tip allows light presentations for dry flies. With their lightweight, responsive, and strong feel, these rods will make you want to fish all day.
