R.B. Meiser Highlander CX Single Hand Rods
… The Highlander CX single handers are light to medium duty rods. They will be most appreciated by those anglers that enjoy a traditional rod action with a very even and incremental power increase, and an equally uniform flex from tip to butt ...
… By request, we have re-introduced our Highlander single hand rods, but have up-graded these blanks to utilize the new Highlander CX materials. The actions of the new CX single handers are based on our original Highlander Spring Creek series of rods.
Our original Spring Creek single handers had that sweet “Power and Soul” feel typical of all the Highlander Classic rod actions. They were never an aggressive, lightning fast “tip flex” series of rods … They were actually quite the opposite. They were extremely caster friendly, deeper loading, uniform flex rods, with a very pleasant, ultra smooth delivery and an authoritive, crisp speed of recovery.
The new Highlander CX single hand rods do still have all of these same characteristics … But they are now 20% lighter in hand then their previous generation. The new materials do also allow the new CX blanks to be far more touch sensitive in regards to “feeling” the delivery … Allowing increased delivery assistance with line management, timing, and casting accuracy. This characteristic does also assist the angler in not only sensing the game fish’s pick-up and take of the fly, but will also greatly assist in performing a quick catch and release.
The CX single handers are technically a new series of rods for us, but they do carry a long, hard earned and respected gene poll history, and we feel that they will continue to be fine representatives of the Highlander family of rods.
NOTE: We will supply an SGS weight forward single hand line with each rod purchase free of charge
R.B. Meiser Highlander SX Single Hand Spey Rods
… The Highlander SX single handers are light to medium duty rods that are designed for those anglers that will wish to have a rod that is specifically designed to assist in single hand Spey delivery. They are based on our Highlander S rod actions …
… As with the growing appreciation of the ultra light, short two handed Trout Speys … There is also an equally growing appreciation for light-in-hand single hand rods with the design capability to efficiently deliver Scandi and Skagit shooting heads utilizing both single hand anchor point Spey, and over head deliveries. The Highlander SX rods are designed specifically to meet these criteria.
They are based on our Highlander S actions. By definition, these are fast speed of recovery, mid-flex rods. When compared to the Highlander CX rods: They will have 10% to 15% more energy in the top 2/3 (will be stiffer) and will load deeper into the cork. They have ideal actions to lazer grain matched Scandi or Skagit shooting heads utilizing either single hand Spey or overhead deliveries.
The Highlander SX single handers will have grip assemblies typical of any 10’0” single hand rod, with a 2.5” fighting butt (as shown in the image above)
They are ideal for correctly grain matched OPST Commando heads, the Scientific Anglers Spey Lite integrated Scandi lines … And our formula SGS Scandi/Skagit shooting heads, custom built specifically for the rods length, power and angler’s applications.
The Highlander 10’0” SX single hand rods are the ultimate ultra lite weight rods specifically designed for shooting head delivery.
