Orvis Trident Fly Fishing Rods Debut
What is instantly recognizable about the new Trident TLS series of rods, besides the familiar green and gold cosmetics, is the performance. Indeed Trident TL rods have been recognized in awards by the industry’s most prominent publications in the United States and Europe, garnering an Editors Choice award from Fly Fish America, a Gray’s Sporting Journal, Gray’s Best award, a Best of the Best award from the Robb Report, and an award at the 2001 EMAP magazines convention in Europe.
Trident TLS rods incorporate the same trademark TL compound tapers that make TLS rods in every line weight among the lightest rods on the market. Each TLS uses the same maple burl reel seats, gold anodized reel-seat hardware, and is coated with the same deep green finish, a three step process that includes a final UV blocking clear coat. Chrome guides on the freshwater TLS and black anodized guides on the saltwater version finish the package. Equally as recognizable and appreciated is the sticker price, nearly 40% less than the TL’s of the past.
Trident TLS is one of the most complete rod series in the world, covering line weights one through fourteen. Many line weights include rods in all three flex-index ratings, full-, medium- and tip-flex, to match anybody’s casting style and fly-rod action preference. Included in the TLS line are three seven-piece rods, many four-piece rods, in addition to the standby two-piece versions.
The time has never been better to upgrade you rod quiver with these best selling Trident rods. The 865, an 8’ 6”, two-piece, mid-flex rod for 5wt line, is one of the most versatile rods available, a perfect match for any casting style, great for beginners and experts alike. The 905, a 9’ 5” two-piece, tip-flex rod for 5wt line, gives the angler a little more length for mending line and is a great nymph rod with a powerful butt section and delicate tip. The 908-4, 9’ four-piece, tip-flex rod for 8wt line, is our most popular, versatile travel rod for saltwater species. The 909-4, a 9’, four-piece, tip-flex rod for 9wt line is the most popular travel rod in the Florida Keys, a great performer for everything from redfish to stripers.
You can’t go wrong with a Trident TLS. Every taper is time tested, every detail is first quality. And every Trident TLS is back ed by an unconditional quarter-century guarantee. Orvis will repair or replace your rod should you break it, no questions asked. In addition, if you purchase a complete rod outfit, including a Battenkill Large Arbor Reel for example, we’ll include a Wonderline at no charge. All things considered, the TLS is the most significant rod value on the market today.
