Ross Worldwide Fly Rod Essence FW This rod doesn't have a rod tube. The FW rods are the premium, top-of-the-line offering of the Essence line. These rods are composed of Ross’ exclusive proprietary R-3 graphite – the highest grade graphite available in this series – for exceptionally fluid casting smoothness and surgical fly-placing precision. A medium-fast action rod taper complements any casting style. Powerful and responsive, these rods deliver the close-in accuracy and river-crossing long-range potential normally reserved for much-higher-priced rods. The four-piece design is, at once, sturdy and lightweight to provide the fish-turning authority you need to avoid interference from rocks, hanging shrubbery and flooded timber, while maintaining a lightweight feel that minimizes casting fatigue. Ultrastrong titanium-oxide guides provide durable, friction-reducing performance. The rich, stream-inspired deep green finish on the rod is refined with silver accents. A durable “Grade A” cork handle provides a dexterous grip and traditional elegance. All rods are shipped with a custom-fitted aluminum carry case. Named after acclaimed fly-fishing master Mel Krieger’s instructional tome, “The Essence of Flycasting,” each rod in the Essence Series was designed using Krieger’s expertise to satisfy the demands of seasoned fly fishermen and beginners alike, setting a new standard for affordably priced fly rod. The Essence FW rod series comes with the following standard features: Ross proprietary R-3 graphite design Medium-fast action rod taper, perfect for any casting style 4-piece design – great for travel!
