Presented in a travel-friendly six pieces with no compromise to the signature action of the Gaelforce Destination series, the Destination 13-foot 9-inch #8/9 is ideally suited to larger rivers, where grilse, two-sea-winter salmon and the occasional three-sea-winter salmon are the primary quarry. A superb choice for the Bonaventure in Canada, the Laxa in Adaldal in Iceland or the Rynda in Russia, the Gaelforce Destination 13-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 #9/10. The rod tube measures a tidy 31.5 inches (80 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 13-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 a single spey or a snake roll.
