Entering into Euro-nymphing and don’t know which rod to buy? The MKII Competition Nymph rod from Cortland is a rod designed specifically for Euro-Nymph applications and utilizes the finest carbon fiber and military-grade composites. These rods are incredibly lightweight and extremely sensitive for a stellar nymphing experience on the water.
Tactical Military-Grade Blank - The blank of the MKII series is built with carbon fiber and military-grade modulus resins specifically for competition nymph angling. With a 10-foot length and nymph-specific taper, the MKII helps you catch more fish on the water. Cortland uses premium graphite and a tried-and-true Euro Nymph taper to create a rod that is powerful and sensitive. These rods are well-balanced and expertly designed. The blank features a matte Grey finish for stealthy angling.
Hard Chrome Stripping Guides - Hard chrome stripping guides are great for nymphing and allow the angler to fight fish and present line accurately and efficiently. These guides stand up to weather and wear and are extremely durable.
Hard Chrome Single Foot Snake Guides - Single foot snake guides are lightweight and highly functional. Many rod manufacturers use snake guides for their low-friction design and durable build.
Carbon Fiber Insert w/Double Downlocking Component - A carbon fiber insert and double downlocking component keep the butt section of the MKII Nymph functional and durable. Anodized aluminum componentry locks down any fly reel for unparalleled design and functionality.
Cordura Rod Tube - The Competition MKII Nymph comes in a durable Cordura rod tube with a rod sock for increased protection. Cordura keeps the MKII Nymph safe during transportation, travel, and time off of the water.
Limited Lifetime Warranty - As of 8/2019, Cortland rods come with a Limited Lifetime Warranty against manufacturer defects. The Cortland warranty is limited to the original owner and rods must be registered within 30 days of purchase. Cortland will also repair or replace your rod. Cortland charges a $50 fee for any damage that is not directly related to manufacturing defect for handling and shipping.
