Presented in a travel-friendly six pieces with no compromise to the signature action of the Gaelforce Destination series, the Destination 12-foot 9-inch #8/9 is ideally suited to midsized rivers, where grilse, two-sea-winter salmon and the occasional three-sea-winter salmon are the primary quarry. A superb choice for the Langa, Nordura, Midfjardara, Hofsa or the Sela in Iceland, the Gaelforce Destination 12-foot 9-inch #8/9 pairs well with the Gaelforce Equalizer ESH Shooting Head #9 (523 grains/34 grams) or the supremely versatile Gaelforce Equalizer Multi Tip #8/9. The rod tube measures a tidy 30 inches (76 centimeters) for maximum portability to exotic destinations for salmon, sea-trout and steelhead fishing.
Utilizing the finest new graphite materials in the construction of the blank, the Gaelforce Destination 12-foot 9-inch for #8/9 allows the angler to fish “fine and far off” with ultimate precision. The strong tip and the deep progressive action—the signature flex of the Destination series—eliminate side deflection of the tip when lifting line from the water and provide maximum feedback when making a change of direction with sustained-anchor casts or with traditional spey casts.
