  • Description

    Guideline NT11 4-piece double handers featuring the latest in technology and are just slightly softer but have the same fantastic rod action as the 6 pc models, and will cast and perform at equal levels.

    You’ll find these rods to be easy to operate with their full flex medium/fast action and tips that are rigid but still sensitive enough to make them lively and fun to cast without having to focus on perfect casting stroke timing all the time. They load deeper and generate increasing amounts of power and line speed when you ask for it. While still maintaining impressive lifting power for sinking lines, this deeper, yet fast type of action will work for a wide range of casts, lines and casting styles. Guideline have worked hard and deliberately to keep the value of these rods maximized without sacrificing quality in workmanship or components.

    The NT11 fly rods represent the culmination of harnessing the latest and most sophisticated State of the Art graphite materials utilized in today's aerospace industry. When applied to and used in fly rods, some remarkable benefits are achieved. The most evident effect being an amazing recovery power and crispness in the blanks, created by combining the incredible armoring and strength increasing effects of T1100G graphite with layers of the highest modulus graphite we’ve ever used in any fly rods to date. For you as an angler, the above properties are built into a series of rods that have the lowest blank weight, yet the highest break strain of any other rod in our line up and probably also on the entire fly rod market.

    12’9 #8/9 32-35 gr/490-540 grains: In recent years, this has been one of the most popular two hand models. Very versatile and with power to manage big fish and also larger flies that are a bit bulkier than the 7/8wt rod. This rod can also be used with both the shorter 3D+/4D+ Compact system or the longer standard 3D+/4D lines, it’s just a preference thing what you prefer. If you fish in tight situations with steep and high river banks behind you, the Compact system will be your best choice. A 34grams (25+9gr) 4D Compact Multi Tip #8/9 kit works perfect on this rod.

    13’9 #9/10 37-41 gr/570-635 grains:Possibly the most versatile of all the rods, this model is a bestseller across their ranges of Salmon rods for a reason. The NT11 version manages just about all the conditions and challenges you throw at it and it does it in style. Heavy sinking lines, tough winds, bulky flies, big fish or tight high banks and deep wading are all part of the everyday work load for this rod. It’s a fraction faster and more powerful than most of the other rods in this Series, but it felt so good like this that we left it like this. It has a great tolerance for lines, but some of our favourites are standard 4D Bodies in 29gr + 15’/11gr or even 18’/12gr Tips (The later also works great on a 29gr 4D Compact Body). You can also load the rod with a 32gr Body and 9gr tips.

    14’9 #10/11 43-47 gr/660-720 grains: The classic big river, big fish, larger flies rod that handles all densities of lines equally well. It has a great connection between tip and butt section, balanced with a powerful medium/fast flex that generates great line speed from the powerful recovery of the bent blank. Works great with 3D+ Heads in #10/11 (44gr) or a 4D set up with a 32gr body and 18’/12gr tip. Alternatively, a 35gr body with a 15’/11gr tip will give even more load in the rod and work just as fine. It’s all just a matter of your individual preference.

      Taking accurate body measurements is one of the keys to a great fit; all you need is a tape measure.
      While it's easiest to have someone else take your measurements, you can also do it yourself.
      Stand in front of a mirror to make sure you have the tape measure in the right position. Ideally, you should be measured wearing only your underwear or close fitting clothing.
      Because the body is made of soft tissue, it can be a bit difficult to know exactly how tight to pull the tape around the body.
      The tape should be a bit snug, but not tight-it should not "dig in" or make an indentation in the body. It should not be loose, either! Just wrap the tape around the area of the body being measured and hold it in place. You should be able to put a finger behind the tape, but no more than that.
      To measure the length of the foot, stand with your back against a wall and put the foot so the heel touches the wall. Then take a measurement at the position of your longest toe. Do this with a bare foot.
      Please note! All measurements are presented in centimeters and are measures of your own body, not the garment.
      These charts are only a guide to find the size you need. Trying them on, in real life, is always the best way to find a perfect fit.
      The fit of fishing clothing is not only about size of your body. It also comes down to personal preferences of how loose or slim you want them.
      If you often fish during the cold weather season and have the need for extra base and fleece-layers, remember to allow for this when you choosing your  size.
