Marryat’s TACTICAL Sea series rods are the result of years of technical research combined with input from some of the world’s most talented fisherman. First and foremost, these are fishing rods! They are really good at casting a long line with tight loops but don’t be fooled, there is more to fishing than distance. From the moment you get a Tactical SEA rod in your hand you can tell that is different – it is very light and quite tippy when you feel the action, so you can easily cast it all day.
The modern fast action makes it powerful and accurate yet it is sensitive and responsive enough to fish on the fine tippet when stalking the flats at close quarters. The hook up reveals these rods to be truly different – sensitivity and accuracy unlike other ‘casting rods,’ Marryat TACTICAL Sea rods are designed to play trophy fish on fine tackle without getting broken!
The Tactical SEA series is newly introduced and starts out with all the features to become the classic, 9 foot 8-weight for both Sea Bass (progressive action) and Bone fish (fast action) and the 10-weight Tarpon so is quite capable of casting heavier tackle with the same ease. Reviewed as probably the best value premium rods available these rods are true to their line rating, unlike many of their American counterparts “8-means-8”.
Marryat Tactical SEA rods easily out-perform the competition when it comes to finesse and reserves of power that are needed to present bigger flies. They are built on a matt blue blank to ensure that the rod is as stealthy as the thats fisherman's casts the thats – a rod that will never let you down!
We have found that the TACTICAL SEA 8-weight rods also make great fresh water predator fly rods for species like Pike.
