9’ in length and available in eight line sizes, 5wt through 12wt Archipelago Rods feature a slim profile designed to slice through extreme coastal winds, and high-modulus blank construction that blends delicacy with power.
The result is a rod capable of reaching out to deliver tarpon flies delicately to laid up fish, with the backbone to break the spirit of the largest saltwater bruisers quickly and under demanding conditions.
The Saltwater Archipelago Series are four-piece rods featuring REC Recoil Snake guides, light weight Titanium Stripper Guides with SIC inserts, and a light weight natural finish with UV Coating, anodized aluminum reel seat with laser engraved CLUTCH logo, an attractive “tuxedo black” rod tube.
Grips and Butts
the 5 through 8 has a normal cork full wells grip with a 1'0" fighting butt. The 9 through 12 has a reinforced hard cork upper grip that helps with durability of the grip, which helps when casting big rods with big lines and flies. The 10 through 12 weight rods also have a 1'5" butt.
Comes with factory tube and sock
