The Evotec CAST Medium action rods are ideal for delicate fly presentation and encourages longer power application through the smoothest of full flex rod actions. Each rod in this flex tempo is designed for freshwater fishing. These models provide pleasure and performance in equal and delicate measures. From presenting the tiniest of dry flies to rolling out a spey cast for summer run migratory fish, the Evotec CAST Medium rods offer absolute enjoyment with no compromise in performance.

Additional Information

EVOTEC CAST ROD ACTIONS

By introducing the new range of CAST fly rods we are delighted to offer our innovative and unique concept of three separate blank actions in one rod series. The essence of CAST (Colour, Action, Sequence, Tempo) is flexibility in colour-coded rod actions for any given fly fishing environment. The series maximises the benefits of the full to mid curve actions favoured in today’s fly fishing, but in three distinct flex tempos. Whether it’s small creek brownies or swinging heavy flies deep for Atlantic salmon, the CAST range offers high performance fly rods in Medium, Medium Fast and Fast actions to complement not only your casting style, but also your chosen discipline of fly fishing.

Irrespective of your favoured action, each of the rods in the series offers unrivaled performance and outstanding value for money in their class. Each model in the CAST series not only achieves but surpasses performance expectations in a tasteful and thoughtfully designed colour coordinated package. Castability and fishability are the inherent LOOP trademarks that inspired the CAST concept. We are proud to present these next generation fly rods.

LINE RECOMMENDATION

Optimizing the maximum potential of any fly rod comes down to choosing the correct fly line for both climatic and water conditions as well as the anglers chosen casting discipline and casting ability. We generally recommend matching the designated line weight with the designated rod weight as the best overall performance choice. However, all LOOP rods are designed to factor in a margin of tolerance to allow the fly fisher to increase or decrease the line weight depending on the particular fishing situation.

ROD TEMPO ACTION

ROD TEMPO ACTION:

Each LOOP fly rod has a specific rod tempo classification to denote the flex curve/action of the blank during the casting stroke. The particular classification (Medium, Medium/Fast and Fast) informs our customers where power is supplied as biomechanical input from the hand/hands relates to energy transfer output through the rod and in to the fly line. In simplified terms, the Medium, Medium/Fast and Fast tempo designations indicate the blank’s curve structure and flexibility during the casting cycle.

 

M – MEDIUM TEMPO ACTION:

Our medium tempo rods have a full flex action designed for slow, stealthy and deliberate presentations with long, delicate leaders and small flies. This slower tempo is also most amenable to freshwater environments and requires long, deep power application through the blank to optimise this particular rod action. This action is ideal for short to medium casting scenarios and offers a high degree of sensory feedback from the blank both during the casting cycle and when playing fish.

 

Casting Ability Level: Novice, Intermediate, Good, Expert 

 

M/F – MEDIUM/FAST TEMPO ACTION:

This classic LOOP rod action offers the fly fisher more structure and backbone in the lower sections of the rod. This allows a broad range of angling application due to the perfect balance of casting performance and fish fighting ability. When longer casts are required, the angler can call upon more power reserve in the rod’s blank compared to the medium action tempo, resulting in greater water coverage for minimal biomechanical output effort.

 

Casting Ability Level: Novice, Intermediate, Good, Expert 

 

F – FAST TEMPO ACTION:

Our fast tempo rods are designed for more direct-to-target power application with minimal blank deflection when the rod is brought to a stop on the forward delivery. This transfers forward energy through the rod in to tight, aerodynamic loops and even in challenging wind conditions, longer casting distances can be achieved with ease.  With less flex in the blank compared to the Medium and Medium/Fast tempos, this action does however, require more finely tuned and accurate timing than the slower flex tempos to maximise performance of this classification of flex pattern.
