New For 2017, The Asquith Fly Rod is the first fly rod to use spiral x technology which increases rod rigidity to reduce lateral movement in the rod and less ovalization, as a result the rod is less likely to break when fighting a big fish.
The Asquith series is the culmination of global cooperation in design, materials, and manufacturing techniques. Built on Shimano’s proprietary Spiral X platform, the Asquith boasts superb power transfer from tip to hand, quick recovery, and increased sensitivity. Designed by world casting champion Steve Rajeff, the Asquith is an exploratory step into the future of rod manufacturing technology. With fast actions, generous power levels, titanium guides, and exceptionally light swing weight, all rods in the series excel in fishing situations where developing high line speed and making precise casts means success.

Took a chance with this rod based on the fact that I could return it for a full refund after 30 days even if I fished it a bunch. Its been almost 30 days and its not going anywhere. Hands down the best fly rod I have ever casted. Seems like it can throw anything with plenty of power or finesse. I would have one of these in every weight if I could.
