The Highlander Classic 15'0" 7/8/9 wt is our original rod from the 15'0" series, and one of the earliest benchmark tapers from the Highlander series. 

She has proven to be a fine all-purpose mid-range rod for large to medium sized rivers. She has a grain window that will easily and effortlessly deliver to 800 grains of long belly, and will easily and consistently reach well into the 110' plus range when asked.

Although she is most noted as a superb dry line grease liner, she does still have plenty of authority to deliver a full gamut of interchangeable tip classic Spey lines, and finesse to touch-and-go any correctly grain matched Scandi shooting head line system.

The MKS 15' 8/9 wt is a more recent addition to our inventory. She was developed by angler request to be a light-in-hand rod suitable to easily manage dangle release of full sink classic Spey lines and extreme distance delivery of long bellied lines. She is slightly stiffer tipped then the Highlander, and so will manage a bit more grain at the high end of the window.

As is typical for all of the S rods; the 1508S will be lighter in hand then will the MKS or Highlander Classic rods. She has an extremely caster friendly tip to mid flex that will allow the caster to laser Scandi heads extreme distances with literally only a flick of low hand power, yet has the back bone to easily manage correctly grained mid belly lines easily to beyond 100 feet.

 These 15'0" MKS and the Highlander rods are ideal 4 season Steelhead and Salmon tools, suitable for all game fish well into the 30 pound range.
