The 13'6" family of rods have always been among the most popular medium duty tools for our anglers as their length and grain window does allow them to be ideal multi-task 4 season tools for both mid to large-size rivers.

The S2H13678MKS-4 is overall our most popular mid size river two handed rod. They have the utility power to easily defeat all game fish into the 30 pound range, but still be light enough in hand to have fun with game fish in the 8 to 12 pound range.

She is an ideal all-purpose tool for medium to large rivers and all game fish to 30 pounds.

The S2H13679FES-4 Classic Highlander is a fine grease liner. She too has a long history and is very popular with our anglers. The FES has a crisp, authoritive delivery with a fast recovery, and power transfer that can be felt nicely into the cork under full line load.  

Like all of the rods within the S Series Highlanders, the 1368S rod is extremely light-in-hand. She has fast speed of recovery, a mid flex shooting head rod that will laser Scandi's, and dredge Skagits with incredible ease. She will also be very comfortable with short to mid belly classic Spey lines.
