A float plane into the heart of ALASKA? The trip of a lifetime to South America? A two-hour drive to the in-laws that just happens (if you take the right roads) to pass through some blue ribbon trout water? No matter where you're headed, you want to arrive there, rods included. This is the philosophy behind our ESCAPE Travel rods. 16 high performance and four even higher performance (GLX to be exact) multi-piece spin and cast rods designed to cover the gamut of fishing opportunities for the vagabond angler. Whether you BACKPACK, travel around the world or just want a rod to stick behind the seat in your pick-up, it's a good bet you won't find a better multi-piece rod anywhere. The next time you head out for that trip of your fly-fishing LIFETIME and the winds threaten to put you out of business, just pack your favorite Escape rod as a back-up and save the day.
We went a little overboard with the breadth of Escape Series models so we've redesigned, improved and simplified the entire line. The rods have similar actions as before though they'll be a little smoother through the ferrule and stronger throughout. Fuji guides, and these newly redesigned rods now come with a rod tube!
