10'6'' LW6/7 4 pc Med-Fast

Short description:

Built on the same high modulus IM12 46T fast action blank as the others in this series, the extra length makes this rod a little 'softer' than its companions, so perhaps 'fastish' would be a better description.

IM12 10'6'' LW6/7 4 pc Medium-Fast action

Built on the same high modulus IM12 46T fast action blank as the others in this series, the extra length makes this rod a little 'softer' than its companions, so perhaps 'fastish' would be a better description. It has been designed as the ultimate boat rod, for drifting on lakes and lochs everywhere, using the time-honoured, traditional 'loch-style' technique with a team of flies, either on a sinking or floating line. However, its steely spine and long reach also make it perfect for 'pond' fishing in North America, where bankside vegetation is often a problem. It is also an excellent seatrout or grilse rod for river fishing in summer conditions, offering enjoyable sport with its light weight and fast recovery. Tested from Japan to NZ, Scotland to North America, its versatility is endless. How about light-tackle fishing in the surf for bass or stripers? Ideal! It features:

- Matt brown non-flash stealth finish with red whippings.
- Titanium finish snake guides.
- Two stripping guides.
- AAA cork full Wells handle with compressed cork sections at the ends for protection.
- Short fighting butt with compressed cork at the end for protection. - Scratch-resistant anodised gunsmoke finish CNC machine-cut aluminium reel seat with two locking rings.
- Alignment dots.
- Attractive red 100% fast-drying cotton rod bag and robust green Cordura tube with McGREGOR FLY logo and plastic window for easy recognition.
It balances perfectly with our 5/7 reels, or even 7/9 reel if a large amount of backing is called for. Replacement sections may be purchased in the event of any accidents.

There aren’t many 6wt single-handers longer than 10ft. This one is built on a fast-action IM12 46T blank but its extra length makes it feel a little softer than a fast 9ft or 10ft model. Although rated for 6wt and 7wt lines we felt it worked best with a 6
Review by 'Trout and Salmon' magazine review
There aren’t many 6wt single-handers longer than 10ft. This one is built on a fast-action IM12 46T blank but its extra length makes it feel a little softer than a fast 9ft or 10ft model. Although rated for 6wt and 7wt lines we felt it worked best with a 6wt, which makes the rod feel light and allows for more controlled casts. With a 7wt weight-forward line it feels a little overloaded and heavier in the hand.
The rod’s extra length is most beneficial when short-lining from a drifting boat, which is an enjoyable way to fish on wild lochs and reservoirs. The blank has a matt brown finish with red whippings, titanium-finish snake intermediate rings and black stripping rings. The machine-cut aluminium reel seat has two locking nuts. Ferrule alignment marks make the rod easy to assemble.
