The RS range of rods is simply the best that Wychwood has ever produced.
Specifically designed for anglers that want that little bit more power and performance the rods feature an action, which is just a shade slower than fast, which gives the angler a whole host of casting options, no matter which fishing method is employed.
Distance casting is very easy too as the ‘fastish’ tip allows you to generate high line speeds and tight loops.
There’s also that extra bit of power down low in the butt section, so unlike a lot of stiff actioned rods, it has life and feel to it.
This ‘feel’ means that these rods really come into their own when you’re playing a fish as the whole blank is employed. With the rods flexing as one you will be able to subdue your catch far quicker and without fear of putting too much strain on light tippets.
The RS series covers all the popular sizes when it comes to stillwater, reservoir and running water fishing applications.
