Diamondback Glass Rods

Glass. Love it or hate it, you can’t deny that fiberglass fly rods have a cult following. Slow down and flex a smooth loading glass rod, and feel the precision and control that a full-flex rod provides. Based on the popular Diamondglass series, the new Diamondback Glass rods are constructed from Diamondbacks’s proprietary S22 fiberglass blend, and feature a striking midnight-blue gloss blank, dark blue wraps, silver accent wraps, stainless chrome snake guides, and a fancy burled Mappa reel seat.

Diamondback Glass rods are designed to be ultra-accurate at close range, yet capable of reaching out when necessary. Each model has a unique taper that maintains the distinct glass “touch” in the tip and mid-section, yet provides enough backbone to strike and play large fish. Their forgiving actions will allow for the most precise and delicate presentations, and you won’t find a sweeter series of dry fly rods on the market.

All these rods are light in the hand, sleek in profile and set a new benchmark for performance cosmetics and value for the Diamondback Rod Company.
