Scott Meridian Series Fly Rods

The all new Meridian saltwater rods build on our award winning ReAct technology to bring you a series of saltwater rods that are remarkably light, and generate exceptional line speed and power.

Using increased recovery speed rather than stiffness to more efficiently transfer energy, Meridian rods help you quickly make accurate casts at any distance in demanding saltwater conditions. You’ll be amazed at how fast you can get the fly from your hand to the fish, and in the salt that’s often the difference between a fish and a wish.

Meridian rods are fit with newly designed components that defy harsh saltwater environments. Scott designed a new reel seat milled from aircraft grade aluminum, featuring self-indexed slide hoods, extra deep knurling to easily turn lock rings with wet hands, type 3 mil-spec hard coat in non-reflective flat black, and line weight engravings for quick rod identification in boat racks.


The new fighting butt shape and transitional check ring help to quickly shed line if it gets caught on the butt by reducing sharp angles that can trap line.

Stripping guides feature SiC rings in full titanium frames and Recoil nickel titanium snake guides for low friction and corrosion free performance.

These rods will truly last and perform in the salt even under the rigors of fishing year around. Wield the new Meridian on your next saltwater quest. We focused on every detail so you could focus on the fish.



~ ReAct – ReAct technology combines our X-Core design with a new complex materials and taper system to create a breakthrough in fast action rod design.
Distance, control and accuracy are compromised by waves that vibrate in the rod, even after the cast has been made. Simply making the rod stiffer to stop these vibrations kills feel. ReAct counteracts energy sapping vibrations by speeding the recovery of the blank without the need to stiffen the rod with more material. This puts the feel in fast. And that’s a really good thing.

~ X-Core Technology – X-Core combines industry leading composite technology with cutting edge design. 10 out of 10 engineers agree (that’s all of them!) that diameter is proportional to stiffness and strength, and X-Core delivers blanks that transmit feel and maintain stability better than any other design approach. We use fast taper mandrels with low-mass thin-walled blanks to create rods that have stiffness with feel, and stability with sensitivity. It’s a superior solution to the slow-taper thick-walled designs that deliver stiffness at the expense of feel.

~ FiberFuse Resin - Our all new FiberFuse enhanced resin system uses new chemistry to create bonds between each graphite fiber that are over 20% stronger than conventional epoxy resins.

~ ARC - Scott is the leader in composite blank reinforcement. Our latest Advanced Reinforced Carbon adds hoop strength and counteracts torque which significantly increases casting accuracy and line control.

~ Multi modulus - Scott pioneered multi-modulus lay-ups in blank design. We’re able to precisely control stiffness along the length of the rod to build rods that load and unload more smoothly.

~Mil-Spec III - anodize that penetrates the surface of the aluminum, creating the hardest, most durable, and most corrosion resistant finish available. ~ Guides: REC Recoil - These new, patented, American made guides from Snake Brand feature radius feet which conform to the blank, have the best corrosion resistance, and even have a self lubricating finish to shoot line farther.

~ Titanium - With the highest strength to weight ratio and corrosion resistance of any metal, our titanium guide frames let you forget about the elements and focus on the fishing. ~ Natural Finish - Creating a natural finish blank requires exacting tolerances, more care, and shows off the beauty of graphite. The Scott natural finish is all about making your rod lighter, more durable and better performing. ~ Handcrafted in the USA - Built from beginning to end in Montrose, Colorado.
