Speyworks SLP 13’ AFTM 8/9
The Speyworks SLP 13’ double–hand salmon rod is compatible with all speycasting styles, and also copes comfortably with overhead casting if preferred. Like all rods in the Speyworks range it is a 4 piece with top quality stripping, intermediate and tip rings. The cork handle is made of AAAA grade cork and of better quality than some of the far more expensive rods on the market. The rod is supplied in a triangular section cordura covered tube and a high quality partitioned rod sock.
On the riverbank it is a joy – light in the hand, easy to cast and ruthlessly efficient at playing even large salmon. I am always amazed by the way this rod can cover the water and compares favourably with longer rods in this respect.
This is without doubt the best 13’ salmon rod on the market and I would have no hesitation in choosing it over rods of more than twice the price.
