The Finesse Glass series is designed specifically for anglers who love the feel and action of traditional glass rods, but who also want the weight saving benefits of more modern materials. The Finesse Glass series delivers all the enjoyment of smoother, slower, more deliberate actions found in traditional glass fly rods, but with reduced in-hand weight and quicker tip recovery. This important characteristic is what distinguishes these rods from your grandfather’s fiberglass rod that struggled to recover on the forward cast.
