If you are looking for that perfect 5-weight rod, this is our new 2020 5-weight Presentation Shootout winner!!! The New Douglas Sky G. When we first cast the new SKY G, we were amazed at how light and responsive the new rod was compared to the older version. The new SKY G rods are composed using G-Tec platelets. The platelets make up a small part of the resin matrix while offering substantial benefits in using less material and maintaining high integrity in linear and hoop strength, but with added impact resistance.
Features on the Sky G
- CERECOIL stripping guides
- REC nickel titanium one foot guides
- Cigar-shaped handle, AAAA Flor grade cork
- Reel seat is a burled blackwood insert
- Matte platinum colored rod blank with section alignment dots and line weights
For the Ultimate Presentation 5 wt. Outfit, we’ve chosen the Galvan Torque T-5. The winner of our 5 weight reel shootout, this lightweight reel can really pack a punch. The T-5 has plenty of room for 100 yards of backing and a 5 wt. line. The disk drag has a HUGE range of adjustment from zero to over 15 lbs! These features, along with its stunning good looks make it a true do it all workhorse. Chose between Clear, Green, and Black for reel finish. You can also choose orange, or blue at no extra cost. We don’t stock large numbers of the “custom” colors so please call if you’re interested in orange, or blue.
Scientific Anglers Mastery Trout fly line comes in two different styles, a more subdued “stealth” version and a much more highly visible “optic” version. Want to upgrade to a Scientific Anglers Amplitude Series fly line? The Amplitude series features the revolutionary AST PLUS slickness additive. These lines will shoot farther and last longer than any other line on the market. It’s slickness down to a science. Amplitude Trout lines retail for $129.95 but with the $79.95 line credit, you’ll get it for $50!!!
