Marryat Tactical PRO Rod
Pascal Cognard, 3-times world champion, rarely returns from prototype testing with a broad smile on his face . . . but the combination of many years of work and latest technology today has him beaming with exclamations of ultimate perfection. (Ultimate perfection is tortuous and you can’t beam an exclamation!) The reputation of the Marryat’s Tactical Pro rods speaks for itself – They have become the rod-of-choice for many competition shermen on the International circuit.
Marryat Tactical Pro rod has been developed to take advantage of the latest in material know-how, new components, and current fishing styles to deliver what fishermen really want.
"a couple of years ago when I first got to try a regular client’s Marryat Tactical Pro 9’6” 3/4wt. Quite simply, the best all-round rod I have ever used. Superb with a fly line or french leader. I should have bought one at the time, but didn’t because I was tied in with a sponsorship deal with another manufacturer. Times do change though, and as I thought about once more becoming an independent, free to choose what tackle I need, irrespective of brand, my thoughts immediately turned to Marryat.
These rods aren’t produced to hit marketing targets. They’re not designed by salesmen. They are developed by some of the best fishermen in the world to meet specific needs, and they are thoroughly tested for months or years before being released on sale." - Pete Buckey
Here are some of the most important points that make the difference:
Blank: These rods carry two line-weights for a reason. The lighter line can be cast with accuracy, precision and finesse while the heavier line can be cast using the butt section reserves to achieve greater distance.
Rings: Fuji SIC butt ring, followed by REC Recoil TM rings titanium/nickel to save weight and minimize "hard points" on the blank.
Reel seat: Screw-down style seat on longer rods – to improve balance at the wrist so minimizing fatigue). Made of 5040 anodized aluminum. The spacer has been laser engraved with a trout.
Handles: As always AAA cork grip.
