PLUM: Our newest color being introduced with our 3rd generation of rods and once again pioneering new and beautiful colors. Exclusive to Blue Halo. It sounds delicious and looks delicious, but until you put hold it up to the sun and see all of it's goodness it is difficult to know what secret powers will be released from it. There is really only one way to find out...
CAPPUCCINO: It might be called "cappuccino," but this rod has little to do with steamy cups o' joe and bad background music. Though its coffee-inspired name, and its appearance--balanced on the edge of traditional rod color and contemporary sensibility--might suggest a refined city kid, this rod clearly belongs out in the country. It's up to you to send it home. Order up your own and put that needed shot of caffeine in your veins.
CHARCOAL: Something about the color charcoal evokes precision. It's clinical. It's coldly efficient. Maybe robotic, even. Although this rod is called charcoal, it's glass through-and-through, allowing you to present a fly with surgeon-like accuracy, and be more fully present when the strikes come thanks to the sensitivity of our second-generation RetroFlex technology.
CRANBERRY: The color red has numerous associations. Love. Anger. Warmth. Passion: we choose to associate red with that time of year when our favorite fish are spawning, when their attitudes are running hot, and when the strikes are fierce. Match the spawn with some sizzle of your own with this Blue Halo RetroFlex II fiberglass complete.
JADE: Blue Halo jade completed rods have the ornamental appeal of heirlooms: something your great grandad traveled far to acquire. But this is beauty with a purpose, and that purpose is catching fish and bucking tradition while doing so. Try your worst: there is no way you can make this rod look bad. Luckily, our jade completes offer more than just a pretty face. You don't need to travel the silk road to put a rare piece of jade in your hands.
RAW: Honest. Au naturel. Free-spirited. Just as the good Lord made it. Call it what you will, but don't call these raw completes unsophisticated. They might be coming at you in the buff, but their soft action can play a trout with the best. Raw power.
SKY BLUE: The sky blue complete matches the clarity of a perfect day on an alpine lake, when the cloudless sky and the still water converge as if one element. These completss are loaded with the promise of summer days out of doors, away from the rat race and all irksome obligations. Naturally stunning and ridiculously fishable. The definitive cure for the summertime blues.
SUNDROP: It's only the center of our universe. No big deal. Now it's your turn to handle the cosmos by customizing your very own sundrop rod. Sure, it might be crazy to suggest that simply naming a rod after the source of all life on our planet might grant the rod some cosmic power, but then again, you can't prove otherwise. These sundrop completess are stellar in every sense. Go ahead: order one up and call yourself the Sun-God. We approve.
I bought the 6 in Sundrop to take on my SUP when I paddle the ICW/Indian River. I like a shorter rod when fishing from a kayak or SUP, especially around the mangroves, and this one is great for that. I paired it up with an Allen Kraken reel in their Dorado color, and the Sundrop rod with blue wraps looks amazing with the green/blue reel, and absolutely lights up in the sun! I've only had it out in the salt once (no fish that day), but took it out to a freshwater pond near home and caught three different species the same day. Bass, bluegill and tilapia. Even the little bluegill was fun on the glass rod, and the tilapia felt like a monster. The flex in the rod is so different from the graphite I'm used to. I bought the Halo primarily for light saltwater, but now it is hard to resist taking along for freshwater too. I tried two other glass rods before this one, and one was light but too slow, and the other was heavy and too stiff; the Halo feels just right.
