Douglas Outdoors’s SKY fly rod series integrates never before used components by a major market fly rod series, such as the first ever use of the most advanced Fuji Torzite stripping guides. Fuji Torzite guides are lighter, stronger, slicker and are made with the thinnest ceramic insert producing a larger inside diameter for improved line flow. The stripping guide is supported by the angled Torzite titanium frame, never before seen in any major market fly rod creating the maximum tangle free properties and improved shooting power. Incorporating the Fuji Torzite stripper guides in conjunction with the corrosion resistant and extremely flexible inline single-foot REC Recoil guides results in the SKY rod series being one of the highest performing fly rod ever used while casting and fighting fish.
Fred Contaoi developed the Douglas Outdoors SKY rod series from the ground up integrating features never before used in major market fly rods. Using the exclusive and proprietary next generation nano carbon matrix materials Contaoi created the eye opening strength to weight ratio throughout SKY rod series. SKY rod series includes what Douglas Outdoors believes to be the best Euro Nymphing rod on the market
John Boyle, Vice President of Sales, notes, “We sought independent input throughout the years of design and testing of the SKY rods so it is appropriate that we launch by also providing reviews of the SKY rods from across the fly fishing industry with established and trusted voices. Fred Contaoi is the best in the industry at incorporating feedback into his designs so when it comes to the ultimate opinions that matter, those that are on the water with the SKY rods, we made sure we did everything in our power to supersede their expectations.” Boyle provided the following independent reviews on the SKY Rod Series.
