Product Description

Refined power for the salt. Our fast action, flagship saltwater series.

The culmination of two years of R&D, working with some of the best guides in the Florida Keys and Bahamas, the Solar series sets the standard for saltwater performance. Designed for the rigors of tropical flats fishing, since the Solar's introduction anglers have found it equally at home chasing Northeast stripers and tuna, throwing poppers for peacock bass, and stripping big streamers for giant dorado and browns.

With SOLAR we developed an immensely powerful rod and then reined it back a little so that it is dialed for optimum performance at 45’ to 65’. All the top tournament guides agree that this is the ‘zone’. At these distances accuracy is enhanced and the reaction of the fish is visible. Sure the SOLAR can throw an entire fly line for a ‘Hail Mary’. But it is dialed for the zone, strong enough in the tip to pick up and recast heavily weighted flies at these distances and possessing the butt power to fight the fish close to the strength limits of IGFA tippets. At Thomas & Thomas, we focus not just on creating ‘casting rods’, but on perfecting ‘catching' rods.

This rod is fantastic. Takes line out of water and casts tight loops. (Posted on 6/28/2015)
