Siks DH: Stop the press!
We are more than happy to announce that Vision has created for season 2012 two six piece SIKS DH rods, which will change your view of DH rods forever. SIKS rods have a powerful and deep action making them great all round rods. Action-wise they are situated somewhere between the highly popular Cult and GT4 Catapult series. With the Cult being more full- and the GT4 Catapult series clearly faster action rods we feel that we have now the Royal flush in our hands when it comes to double hand rods. These 15'2'' (#10) and 13'4''(#7) jewels of rods can be argued to be even better than any comparable 3- or 4-piece DH rods in the same action and line class.

Siks rods handle modern spey lines, shooting heads and skagit heads with ease. The 13 rod packs down to 74 cm and the15 to 83 cm so you can easily pack them inside your travel bag. The rods are made using the very high quality Pacific Bay guides, Portuguese cork rings and wood & aluminium reel seats. The blanks are varnished but unsanded, to give us the opportunity to build them very light in weight but still strong. The rods come with rod cloths inside triangular rod tubes, made from a strong but nevertheless light PVC plastic covered with CORDURA fabric. The triangular shape is very stable when you have to put your rod tube down on the floor of a jet boat while speeding up on one of the steelhead rivers of the West Coast USA, or in the trunk of your 4WD while crossing the rugged landscape of the northern Scotland. On those rare occasions when you want to drop your rod for a solo trip to airplane cargo, the tube form prevents it from rolling so easily off the belt - an event which happens way too often with normal round shaped rod tubes. Try these 6 piece DH rods yourself, because otherwise you won't believe us. They are, as an urban proverb boldly states, just simply unbelievable.
