STF Series - Serious Fast Action Tip-Flex Saltwater Fly Rods
South Pacific STF - Stiff Tip Flex Series - Serious fast action fly rods that can generate extreme line speed and achieve extra long accurate casting distances.
"The main focus when the design team set out to develop a saltwater series was to produce a rod that would not only match the performance level of any world class saltwater rods on the market but go one step further. After extensive testing we feel completely confident we've accomplished this, not only with an incredibly responsive fast action tip flex rod but with the addition of the new PAC BAY minima4 stripping guides the STF elevates to a new level in saltwater fly rods "
The stunning deep blue blanks are fitted out with the very best in componentry from PAC BAY International USA including triple anodised double uplock reel seats, AAA cork handles & EVA/cork butts, oversize smoke snake guides and tips utilising the new minima4 stripping guides. The STF's are 9ft long and available in 6, 7, 8, 9 & 10wt. The STF's track superbly and depend less on your energy and allow you to enjoy sensitive line feel transfer while delivering your fly accurately and quickly. Basically, if you fish salt the STF will move you into a whole new dimension in saltwater fly fishing.

"Passion drives us at South Pacific and we're serious about what we build. We design and build from the ground up the entire product range and our new fly rod series were no exception. The development was a long passionate endeavour which has really paid off. Our joint international design team just completed extensive Australian & USA trials and each of the 3 new rod series surpassed even our design team's high expectations ... "
