~ CeraCoil Guides - Ceracoil stripping guides combine nickel titanium ‘shape memory’ frames with super slick, high-tech Zirconia inserts for a new patent pending guide that will never corrode, will return to its original shape if bent, and has the lowest coefficient of friction for better line shooting. And just to go completely over the top, our Ceracoil guides are PVD coated in a low reflective black finish. The Physical Vapor Deposition process creates a tougher smoother finish than traditional plated finishes.
~ Carbon Web - Scott’s all new Carbon Web technology increases torsional stability and rod durability by encasing the unidirectional fibers in a web of ultra-light multi-directional carbon fiber. These fibers help counteract torsional forces giving you better tracking and positive long line pickups for redirecting casts. They also help to reduce the propagation of micro fractures from stress or impact that can easily run in unidirectional layups and lead to failure. Combining Carbon Web with Scott’s ARC and multi-modulus lay-ups, creates the newest ground- breaking advancement in fly rod technology. Tech translation: higher performance, easier fishing, and more fun for you.
~ 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.
