I will be showing my new Trout speys for the first time at the Sandy Spey Clave. Hope to see you there.
Here is a list of the new rods
ACR Elite 1082-4 10' 8" 2wt. 190 gr.
ACR Elite 1103-4 11' 0" 3wt. 220 gr.
ACR Nova 1143-4 11' 4" 3wt. 230 gr.
My 11'7" Series is unchanged.
All Good Things,

Line them, take them down to the river ...

Pull out your cheque book, that is going to cost you 'serious coin.' :smokin: Thing I like about Gary's rods is you want a '7,' that's exactly what you get. No mixed numbers.

love all the great new options for trout 2 handers ! now if the line manufacturers would just make us more integrated line choices. trout love chasing the fly all the way to the rod tip way too much for all those loops !
(and way too many times in-out for a welded connection to last, imo)

For those of us that can't travel to the clave, would you mind listing all the "new" rods, Gary? That is, the ones not already on your website.

Thanks a lot.

Wow. Thanks Gary. Looks like your R&D department has been busy!

Those long 5 weights are tantalizing. What is the grain window of the 1445?

Nice talking to you earlier today on the phone.

1173-4

The 1173-4 is virtually the same, but there is a hint more tip power. The rest of the rod is unchanged. The grain window on the 1305-4 is 350-400gr. A 350 scandi at 33' and it Rocks!

An early report from the Sandy Clave. Cast the ACR 1446 with a Vector 5/6 first thing this morning. Outstanding! Light, easy going, and gets past 100' without taking a deep breath or requiring much input from the caster. Just pretend you are trying to make a 50' cast but have a whole lot more line ready to shoot. ME WANT NOW. This could get expensive

I cast the 1446 at Sandy. I had been casting 15'ers a lot so it took me a while to back off the gas, but once I did that rod zinged a Vector 5/6 past 100' without taking a deep breath. I tried a Vector 6/7 but it was too heavy so I would call it more of a light 6 or 5/6 than a 6/7. Effortless casting and deep flexing. I'd suspect the 1445 is similar but a touch lighter. Super fun. I want one.
