Winner of “Best in Show” in the New Product Showcase of the recent International Fly Tackle Dealer trade expo, the new Scott Radian is all its cracked up to be. By combining their ReAct Technology along with X Core Technology Scott created a rod that dampens power sapping vibrations without making the rod overly stiff or , as Scott puts “Fast meets Feel”. We has the chance to cast the rods before they were released and man, did they impress. The 9 ft 5 wt was a dream. Loading easily at short distances, booming out “Hail Mary’s”, mends, roll cast- this thing did it and did it well.
And Scott didn’t scrimp on the hardware either. Using titanium framed SiC stripping guides, custom reel seats with burled box elder spacers, the very top grade Portuguese cork, and the new patented Universal snake guides, the Radian is an eye catcher.
