Sector fly rods advance Scott's award winning ReAct technology with new tapers and their Carbon Web. Scott introduced the most cutting-edge fly rod components ever created.
Scott’s all new Carbon Web technology improves torsional stability and rod durability by encasing the unidirectional fibers in a web of ultra-light multi-directional carbon fiber. These fibers help counteract torsional forces giving you better tracking and power for long line pickups and redirecting casts. They also help to reduce the propagation of micro fractures from stress or impact that can run in unidirectional layups.
Sector rods are fit with newly designed components that defy harsh saltwater environments, redefine reliability, and enhance angler experience.
They feature all new CeRecoil stripping guides with nickel titanium frames and super slick Zirconia inserts, along with Recoil nickel titanium snake guides for low friction and corrosion free performance. The guide sets are PVD coated in a low reflective coating for even greater durability and stealth. The reel seats are milled from aircraft grade aluminum and feature self-indexing slide hoods, extra deep knurling to easily turn lock rings with wet hands, type 3 mil-spec hard coat in non-reflective flat black, and line weight engravings for quick rod identification. Flor grade cork grips are turned to our modified wells shape, and the new fighting butts feature a thick soft rubber for greater comfort in tough fights or while bracing on long casts..
CeReoil Stripping Guides
- CeRecoil stripping guides combine nickel titanium ‘shape memory’ frames with super slick, high-tech Zirconia inserts for a new patent pending guide that will never corrode, will return to its original shape if bent, and has the lowest coefficient of friction for better line shooting.
- CeRecoil guides are PVD coated in a low reflective black finish. The Physical Vapor Deposition process creates a tougher smoother finish than traditional plated finishes.
- Scott's all new Web technology increases torsional stability and rod durability by encasing the unidirectional fibers in a web of ultra-light multi-directional carbon fiber.
- These fibers help counteract torsional forces giving you better tracking and positive long line pickups for redirecting casts.
- They also help to reduce the propagation of micro fractures from stress or impact that can easily run in unidirectional layups and lead to failure. Combining Carbon Web with Scott’s ARC and multi-modulus lay-ups, creates the newest ground- breaking advancement in fly rod technology.
- ReAct technology combines Scott's X-Core design with a new complex materials and taper system to create a break-through in fast action rod design.
- Distance, control and accuracy are compromised by waves that vibrate in the rod, even after the cast has been made. Simply making the rod stiffer to stop these vibrations kills feel. ReAct counteracts energy sapping vibrations by speeding the recovery of the blank without the need to stiffen the rod with more material. This puts the feel in fast. And that’s a really good thing.
- Enhanced feel, incredible stability and unequalled performance. X-Core combines the industry’s leading composite technologies with cutting edge design.
- Diameter is proportional to stiffness and strength, and X-Core, or Expanded Core, technology delivers blanks that transmit feel and maintain stability better than any other design approach.
- Scott uses fast taper mandrels with low-mass, thin-walled blanks and proprietary ARC reinforcement to create rods that have stiffness with feel, and stability with sensitivity.
Multi Modulus Blank Design
- Fine-tuned flex and recovery.
- Scott pioneered the use of multi modulus fiber lay ups in blank design.
Advanced Reinforced Carbon
- Scott is the leader in carbon blank reinforcements. ARC technology adds hoop strength to our blanks without adding weight, and counteracts torque that can reduce casting accuracy and line control.
FiberFuse Enhanced Resin System
- Scott's all new FiberFuse enhanced resin system uses new chemistry to create bonds between each graphite fiber that are over 20% stronger than conventional epoxy resins.
- Walk down a rod rack at your local fly shop and you'll notice something different about Scott rods. Like everything we do, the Scott Natural Finish is all about making your rod lighter, more durable, and better performing.
- Most other rods on the shelf are run through a belt sander, tearing away the outside power fibers of the blank and introducing variance. Inadvertent flatspotting during the sanding process will weaken a blank, and blanks are designed with a margin of error to accommodate for oversanding. After the blank is sanded, a glossy paint is applied to add shelf appeal.
- Natural finish blanks aren't subjected to the rip through the sanding belt, nor are they covered with heavy paint to add pop in your fly shop. We're firm believers in the natural beauty of graphite. A natural finish blank is built to exacting tolerances. Scott's advanced resin systems permeate the blank, leaving a durable finish that will stand up to years of abuse.
Mil Spec III Technology
- Most reel seats are made with a glossy, thin, and easily marred type 2 anodize. Scratches in type 2 anodize expose the aluminum underneath, leading to worn finishes and potential for corrosion.
Nickel Titanium Snake Guides
- Patented nickel titanium snake guides will never rust, and are made from 'memory metal' so always return to their original shape even after being crushed or bent.

Scott designs rods for high performance and build them to last a lifetime. Sometimes things don't go as planned and you break a rod (sometimes even we mess up). It's for these occasions that we warranty our fly rods and have a dedicated repair department of rod craftsmen.
The Scott Lifetime Warranty applies only to the original owner of new graphite and fiberglass rods, purchased from an authorized Scott dealer, that are registered within 30 days of purchase.
Unregistered or resold rods are not covered by this warranty. Rods purchased from third party sites such as Ebay or Amazon are not covered by the warranty. The warranty does not cover loss or theft, loss or damage caused by transportation such as airlines, UPS, FedEx, US Mail, intentional damage, or damage from neglect.
Scott guarantees every registered fly rod and blank we craft with a serial number greater than 35,000 (made after ~ 1994). Thread colors may vary from those on the original rod. Discontinued cosmetic options and components may be replaced with their most comparable equivalent.
9' 8 Weight
Scott kept the nice light feel in this rod that helps you make shorter quick shots easily, and powered it up so you can drive long casts into the wind. That same power helps pick up long lines off the water and change directions without feeling the rod torque off axis. This rod is remarkably a 20 to 100 foot caster. In a nutshell, that's about as ideal as an 8 wt gets. This is truly the do it all rod in the series for anything but the big boys.
9' 9 Weight
People keep telling Scott this is THE ROD. Super rangy for a powerful 9 weight, this rod casts just off the tip in close all the way to the backing knot. In typical fishing distances, it is so efficient in generating line speed and loop control that it turns over the leader on target in all but gale conditions. The best part-it does this while feeling light and responsive. You don't need to push it. All it takes is one relaxed stroke and WOW! the line is far off and straightened out.
9' 10 Weight
Big power with ease, lightness and comfort. A big permit rod, a light tarpon rod, equally capable for near shore species like big stripers, cobia and jacks. This rod loads up quick but has tons of power waiting to be called on. You can easily lay out typical 50-60 foot casts with just one back cast and almost no effort on the delivery, and if you need to punch it, the rod just responds and gives you that extra oomph. The rod is pleasing to cast but has power to spare. A rare combination for sure.
9' 11 Weight
- Enjoyable. Not a word usually associated with a tarpon rod, but this one really is enjoyable to cast and fish. Don't let that fool you though. It has plenty of lifting power to float even those fish with the worst of attitudes. Enough touch off the tip to land flies accurately and softly, enough butt to break their spirit, this really is about the perfect tarpon rod.
9' 12 Weight
- Your companion to the river estuaries of Central America, the GT flats of the Pacific, or the West coast of Florida, this rod will stand up to our sport's most demanding fish. And it won't beat you to a pulp while doing it. An easy to swing 12 weight with power and stability to spare, this rod is a great combination of fishability with raw power.
