A recent addition to the most complete line-up of double-handed rods ever designed for distance spey fishing, the Gaelforce Equalizer 16-foot for #9/10 responds to multiple requests for a long and light rod that may be cast all day on the largest salmon and steelhead streams. Popular with devotees of the “dry or die” approach, the 16-foot length allows maximum coverage with long-belly floating lines while remaining light enough to cast without fatigue during long sessions on the water. The Tay and Ness in Scotland, the Gaula or Orkla in Norway, the lower Restigouche in Canada and, of course, the Clearwater in Idaho are ideal venues for the Gaelforce Equalizer 16-foot for #9/10.
Utilizing the finest new graphite materials in the construction of the blank, the Gaelforce Equalizer 16-foot for #9/10 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 Equalizer 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.
