WETFLY’s NitroGlass Antigua fly rod is the brand’s second line of fiberglass rods.
The small but fine brand WETFLY is a GearJunkie favorite Thanks to his commitment to making fly fishing easy, fun and affordable for everyone.
From tenkara to nets to rod-and-reel combos for beginners and seasoned anglers, the products are of great importance. We have chosen WETFLY’s nitrolite ($ 200) as our budget for The best fly rods of 2020and we’re excited to get our hands on this newest rod and see how it’s doing on the river.
The NitroGlass Antigua rod
The newest line of rods – the NitroGlass Antigua Rod ($ 235) – Improves fiber offerings. Fiberglass gives the brand’s three offerings a slow action and a softer, classic feel. A soft, custom taper allows final and feather-light placement of flies. And its design incorporates an old “10 and 2 o’clock cadence” for accuracy.
These rods run a little shorter and easier with the following offers:
- 3WT 6’9 “2.3 oz. 3 pcs
- 4WT 8 ‘0 ”3 oz. 4 pcs
- 5WT 8’6 ”3.4 oz. 4 pcs
Personally, I like to walk on high mountain streams and alpine lakes and look for lively trout. And this rod seems to fit easily into this backpackable, casual style of fishing. Expect to look back on the series later this year.
The rod is now available for Pre-order for delivery in March. Check out the NitroGlass Antigua in action in the video above.
