As a brand becoming increasingly focused on maximum value for the angler; we went in to develop a rod that complemented our current lineup of high performance rods at a price point accessible to even the most budget-minded anglers. The ATS has the look, feel, and finish of a premium rod. The mid-flex classic style trout taper is both forgiving to novice casters, and a refreshing change from the latest fast-action trends for those more experienced casters who prefer to let the rod do the load work for them.
The ATS is constructed of the same quality of aerospace grade graphite as our Xa, Myth, and Olympic series rods. The maple reel seat, A grade cork, TiCr plated stripping guides, classic style snake guides, and dark red gloss finish on the blank round out the outstanding finish on this rod.
We are proud to be offering a special edition of this rod in select sizes to support Project Healing Waters. Project Healing Waters offers fishing, fly tying, and social gatherings for US war veterans, and is a program we strongly support the mission of. For every special edition rod purchased, we will donate $25 to Project Healing Waters.
