09/10/2016 - Thomas & Thomas Announces the Release of Contact Series Fly Rods


Thomas & Thomas Announces the Release of Contact Series Fly Rods Greenfield, MA – October 1, 2016. USA fly rod maker Thomas & Thomas is pleased to announce that Contact series fly rods are now available for purchase in fly shops world-wide. To feel what’s happening below the surface is a breath-taking sensation. T&T’s new Contact series nymph rods transfer every vibration from fly to fingertips. Contact rods utilize T&T’s proprietary StratoTherm resin, resulting in extremely light- weight and responsive rods that maintain superb durability and strength. Flexible but quick-dampening rod tips nearly eliminate shock waves in the leader after each cast, allowing flies to track smoothly into the water, improving strike detection on immediate reaction bites. All Contact rods feature a strategic taper that generates positive hook-setting tension with minimal rod sweep, permitting anglers to effectively fish an increased range of rod positions and angles and cover more water with less wading.

Key Features: Responsive quick dampening rod action. Four piece multi-modulus graphite blank incorporating Thomas & Thomas’ latest proprietary composites and curing process, with stealth natural graphite finish. Titanium-frame ceramicstripping guide and single foot RECoil guides. Powder coated aluminium rod tube with precision milled cap and collar. Hand made one at a time in Greenfield,Massachusetts,USA

The Contact series is comprised of three models: 10’ 8” 3wt, 10’ 8” 4wt, and 11’ 3” 3wt.Rods feature up-locking, black anodized aluminium reel seat and burled black ash spacer, with down-locking available by request. Small fighting butt and western grip of select Flor-grade cork, with subtle olive wraps. Priced at $795, Contact rods are available in fly shops now.
