If you’re looking for a 10-weight fly rod, you know exactly what you’re getting into: Big fish. These fly rods aren’t for rat reds or baby speckled trout; these rods are for throwing big flies to tarpon, GTs, trophy largemouth, and just about anything that makes your heart want to jump out of its chest. Now, just because it’s a beast of a rod doesn’t mean it sacrifices all of the feel (just try a 12-weight). You can still drop a tarpon toad on a dime with this rod and get ready for a rodeo you’ll never forget. Also, if you’re a bass angler dredging the bottom with sinking lines, a ten-weight may be just the thing you need to move those big streamers through deeper water.
We have two great options for ten-weight rods. First, our Outcast is specifically designed for saltwater, with corrosion-resistant materials and an engraved aluminum reel seat. Plus, it has a distinct “saltwater look” that’s right at home on the flats. We also have our Vesper rod in ten-weight, with industry-leading materials and unmatched performance on the water. It’s a great option for saltwater, freshwater, or both. Both models include a cork fighting butt to help wrangle those sea monsters you’re bound to hook into.
Regardless of which rod you choose, our ten-weight rods are built to the highest standards—distinctive styles inspired by classic design, custom reel seats made with unique burled hardwoods, hand-turned cork grips, and more. Each of our ten-weight rods is the perfect balance of value and craftsmanship, proof that you don’t need to shell out for a second mortgage to have a great day on the water. If you have a question about which rod weight is right for you, or which model fits your needs, be sure to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Cheers to tight lines and we’ll see you out there.
