The Scott Fly Rod Company is pleased to announce the introduction of our new Session series of fly rods. Session rods are high-performance hand-crafted fly rods that blend some of our most acclaimed design approaches with our latest materials and technologies.

Session rods bring together high line speed, exceptional loop control, and a light and lively feel in hand. They load easily, and they respond to subtle inputs from the angler.

“Anyone who has fished Scott freshwater rods in the recent past will immediately recognize our signature ‘fast with feel’ action in Session rods,” states Scott’s president, Jim Bartschi. “They share some of the design approaches and materials DNA with some of our most legendary rods. Incorporating some of our newest technologies give these rods their own unique feel and attributes.”

Session rods feature Scott’s Carbon Link epoxy resin system, multi-modulus lay ups, ARC2 reinforcement, ReAct, and Natural Finish blanks.

Session rods are handcrafted in Montrose, Colorado, using the finest components including milled aluminum reel seats with type 2 anodized and wood inserts, silicon nitride stripping guides, and super grade cork handles.

The Scott Session rods are available from 8 to 10 feet and in four-piece configuration for 3-weight to 8-weight lines. The Session fly rods cost $675 and are available in fly shops now.

At least it's not another 1200 dollar rod that most fishers can't use to it's advantage. But even 675 is getting up there. No thanks

I’m actually really curious to know how many of the new Helios rods were actually sold so far

It seems to me that fly fishing has gotten to the point where it is just a status thing to have the newest rod/reel/line etc. Not that it improves your fishing experience or aptitude, just a " Got to have the newest item" mind set.

I may buy one for myself as a retirement present. I’ve always wanted to own a Scott rod after casting several different models (Radian, Sector and Meridian) my friends own. I’d cast one first with the lines I like to fish to see how I like it. I’ve found some mid range priced rods that work well for the fishing I enjoy, namely the Loomis IMX-Pro series. I’d likely sell another rod that isn’t getting much use to offset the costs.
