Another advantage the Beach rod has is the ability to quick fire from 25 feet back to 100 by allowing the line's belly to slip just past the rod tip with a roll cast, followed by a quick lift, back cast and forward delivery. So whether you're on the beach or on a boat, the Cross Current 11' 3" Beach fly rod will provide a new level of performance.
Their reduced weight makes them far less tiring to cast. They're sensitive enough that you can feel a bass suck in a suspended jerkbait and they recover quickly so you won't have to worry about keeping your line tight when a fish jumps. In other words, you gain all the advantages of graphite with the action and flexibility of glass. Each rod in the series is crafted in a gorgeous metallic copper finish. These are truly state of the art crankbait rods.
FR13510-4 CC - This model casts flies up to 5 inches with ease. We suggest a fly line with a head length between 35 to 40 feet weighing 425 grains (Plus or minus 25 grains), including Salt Water, Striper and Shooting Tapers.
FR13512-4 CC - If your needs are for all out distance, using up to extra large flies and or big poppers, intentions on doing combat with the likes of a GT with a bad attitude, big mama stripers or even tarpon off the beach, you'll want the #12 wt.-525 grain model. You may use Salt Water, Striper or Shooting Tapers of 525 grains (Plus or minus 25 grains) with a head length between 35 to 40 feet.
