Scott G2 Fly Rod 100

Scott G Series are iconic fly rods. They’re medium action, smooth flexing fly rods treasured by anglers the world over.

Scott introduced the first G rods in 1976, and changed fly fishing by creating the first 9’ 4 weight fly rod. We also introduced the world to the hollow internal ferrule-the most sophisticated way to connect multi-piece fly rods in a smooth and seamless fashion.

In 2006, we introduced the G2 series and modernized medium-action fly rods by making them lighter in hand and increasing their recovery speed.

Now, we bring you the all new G Series. These rods advance medium action fly rods with two innovations. We’ve reinvented the hollow internal ferrule to make it more flexible, stronger, and more than 20% lighter. We’ve also combined our cutting edge fiber and resin systems in the most advanced multi-modulus layups we’ve ever created. New multi-slope tapers were designed to take full advantage of the new materials layups.

Features

  • REACT. ReAct technology combines our X-Core design with a new complex materials and taper system to create a break-through in fast action rod design. Distance, control and accuracy are compromised by waves that vibrate in the rod, even after the cast has been made. Simply making the rod stiffer to stop these vibrations kills feel. ReAct counteracts energy sapping vibrations by speeding the recovery of the blank without the need to stiffen the rod with more material. This puts the feel in fast. And that’s a really good thing.
  • X-CORE. Diameter is proportional to stiffness and strength, and X-Core, or Expanded Core, technology delivers blanks that transmit feel and maintain stability better than any other design approach. We use fast taper mandrels with low-mass, thin-walled blanks and proprietary ARC reinforcement to create rods that have stiffness with feel, and stability with sensitivity.This design helps the rod come alive in your hands. It’s a superior approach to the slow taper, thick walled designs that deliver stiffness at the expense of feel.
  • MULTI-MODULUS DESIGN. Scott pioneered the use of multi modulus fiber lay ups in blank design. By varying the fiber tensile modulus along the length of the rod, we’re able to precisely control the stiffness and recovery speed of our blanks. The result is a rod that loads and unloads more smoothly.
  • FIBERFUSE RESIN. Our all new FiberFuse enhanced resin system uses new chemistry to create bonds between each graphite fiber that are over 20% stronger than conventional epoxy resins.
  • RECOIL. Patented nickel titanium snake guides will never rust, and are made from 'memory metal' so always return to their original shape even after being crushed or bent.
  • ARC. Advanced Reinforced Carbon reduces torque and increases strength. Scott is the leader in carbon blank reinforcements. Our latest ARC technology adds hoop strength to our blanks without adding weight, and counteracts torque that can reduce casting accuracy and line control.
  • MADE IN USA. Every Scott rod is made from beginning to end in Montrose, Colorado. We take our mission to handcraft high performance rods very seriously. We use the knowledge gained from forty years of design experience with our commitment to handcraft every fly rod we make to give you top performance and benchmark quality. It's in all the little details that exceptional rods are distinguished from merely good rods.

Scott G2 Fly Rod Reviews

Best presentation rods on the market for the past decade. Review by Colt

I have 4 G2 Rods. 5 weights in 8'8'' and 9'. 4 weight in 8'8''. 3 weight in 8'4''. All of them have a sweet progressive action and protect tippet better than any fast action rod on the market. I am able to get nice loops and always have enough power for wherever I am fishing unless the wind is very harsh. I like fishing long leaders when dry fly fishing and these rods turnover better than the Sage Ones, and G Loomis NRX's of the worlds. My next G2 purchase will be an 8'8'' 3 weight for spring creek fishing.
Great Medium Action Dry Fly Rod Review by John E.

I recently purchased the Scott G2 884 fly rod. I did a lot of research and yet had a difficult time deciding which rod would be best for me. I settled on the 884 based on its overall excellence with the dry fly, roll casting ability, and versatility. While I feel it could credibly handle hoppers, light streamers, and nymphs, the G2s strength is with delicately cast dry flies under 40 feet.

The G2 is no competition distance casting rod, but has a smooth progressive medium action with a strong butt section and very delicate flexible tip. It has a beautiful retro look and feel and it restores some of the relaxed feeling that originally attracted me to fly fishing. Rio Gold or Rio Trout LT double taper work well. Ben’s blog on fly lines also gives other good options, that I intend to pursue them as well.

On my first outing at a small local lake the bluegill were biting, and I saw the awesome tippet protection and feel this sweet rod provides. I still love my 8-6 4 wt Radian, which is an entirely different animal, but the G2 is worthy of consideration.

I have a 9 ft 4 piece G 4 and 6 wt fly rods. I recently bought a 4 piece 6 wt G2 and wasn't disappointed. It's a wonderful med flex rod to cast!
