The CRUX fly fishing rod is built on our Line Speed Taper, for confident short to mid-range delivery of flies and effortless extreme distance casting. Combined with the introduction of the Angled Key Grip, a denser pre-compressed cork material designed to increase durability and reduce hand fatigue, we feel the CRUX is the best rod we’ve ever built.
