The Viper rods are made especially for handling big powerful fish like pike, musky, carp and saltwater species.
These rods are build to meet the needs from especially pike fishermen. The needs are to cast big and bulky flies as easy as possible, and to have a lot of power in the bottom of the rod to battle the big ones. At the same time the rod should be as light as possible, as tossing big flies all day can be hard work.
The outcome is the new Viper series.
These fast action rods are build with AHT (Advanced Helical Taper) and SBD (Slim Blank Design) and by using these technologies you get just what you need. Keeping the rods at 8' will increase the power of the rod, and at the same time lower the weight. Try it and you will immediately see why so many saltwater and pike fishermen are turning to the 8' rods....
The Viper rods are all 4 pcs and build with the best fittings on the market, like titanium guides from American Tackle and the best 4 AAAA top quality Portuguese cork as handle.
The blank is made with 40 ton high pressure unidirectional carbon fibers. The color is dark grey with matching windings tipped with a thin metallich green thread.
The handle is a little special, as we have included 2 sections of rubber cork in the handle at points where you put most pressure while casting. This is to support the grip aand you hand the best possible way.
The Viper has a detachable foam fighting handle, that you can add to the rod if needed during fighting big fish, and just take off while casting and fishing. A feature known from saltwater fishing, and a great help when that dream Pike or Musky or Peacock Bass some day finds it way to your fly.
The rods are made to fit like "hand in glove" with the Big Fly II flylines
