When fishing in tough, windy conditions or when fishing bulky flies, it pays to have a powerful rod. Many years of rod design have taught me that the more power a rod has the more the rod should have a fast action. To help those who have a more modern condensed powerful cast we have created the next generation of Boost rods which we call BOOST FRESH. As the name implies, we set out to create a family of powerful fast action rods that take advantage of a lighter blank construction. Lighter rods contribute to higher line speeds, reduce fatigue, and help reduce shock waves in the line while the loop unrolls on the back and forward cast. BOOST FRESH rods will eliminate tailing loops and deliver your fly to the target when a more modest power and action rod will not.
