This is a 4-section salmon rod that has a #10 (38 gram) line rating and weighs 9.2 oz (261gms). The rod tube measures 50 inches or 127 cms.
The rod action is upper middle-to-tip and can easily cope with both Shooting Heads and Traditional Fly Lines.
They have a deep golden brown lacquered blank, enhanced by hand chrome American pattern snake rings, aluminium oxide stripper rings, precision machined reel seat, high grade cork handle and alignment arrows. They are supplied in a cloth rod bag and a Cordura covered carrying tube.
With the introduction of new salmon lines, e.g. Skagit, Scandi and Rio "In Touch" that refer to both AFTM, Grains and Grams, a number of anglers have contacted us to ask about line weights. The Gordon 2 15’ Salmon rod was manufactured for a traditional #10 Spey line; this equates to 37/38 grams or 580 grains. By using one of these new range of salmon lines that match these grams or grains weights you will not overload the rod. Should you use one higher, e.g. only looking at the AFTM line rating, you risk overloading the rod and breaking it. Finally, remember that should you add a tip or change from a floating to a sinking head that the combined weight may exceed our recommended grams or grains weight
