Rod Review: Marryat Tactical HX

Ready for a different kind of review?

Our PRO-Team member Shane lives in the North East of Ireland where he spends the majority of his time targeting trout on the rivers and loughs across the country.

He is a star behind the camera so we just thought that we would share his recent review on the blog.

Shane has represented Ireland at both World and European Fly Fishing in recent years, with the pandemic unfortunately there are only local competitions this year. However, if you follow Shane on his social media you will see he is training hard!

Marryat Tactical HX

The Tactical Series offers a rod for almost every eventuality; Light tackle enthusiast can choose stream rods from 7ft and 8ft 3-weight and the now classic 4-weights. These rods are delicate enough for close work on the rivers yet are powerful enough to cast a line down to the backing line.

Reviewed as probably the best value premium rods available the 4-weights are true to their line rating, unlike many of their American counterparts “4-means-4,”especially important when it comes to the 10 footer both available in 4 and 5-weight versions which excel when it comes to Czech- and French-style nymph techniques where a fast and light tip-section are essential for detecting a take on a short line.

The high modulus blank has been specially designed to be light weight, accurate and provide the power to punch a big lure into the wind or delicately present a dry fly under a tree.

Classic Tactical 9ft 5 and 6-weight rods easily out-perform competitors with finesse and reserves of power that are needed to present bigger flies on rivers and lakes.

This range also features a 10ft 7/8-weight to cater for bigger open water and boat fishing and a 9ft 8-weight brings the sheer power needed to stop saltwater predators and sea trout in their tracks.

The high modulus blank has been specially designed to be lightweight, accurate and provide the power to punch a big lure into the wind or delicately present a dry fly under a tree.
