Line management can be a challenging issue to contend with if river conditions require that the angler wade beyond mid-thigh depths, especially if the lines desired will be full-sink classic Speys.

Both the MKS and Highlander Classic will easily manage 75' to 85' of floating belly beyond the rod tip but the MKS is especially well suited to easily manage dangle release of full-sink classic Spey lines.

The S2H15011S is a new rod for our 2009 inventory, but she has proven her worth in the hands of many two handed anglers world wide. She is an absolute Scandi machine, and will launch laser loops extreme distances with only the most minimal amount of expended energy.

If line management of full sink classic Speys is not your forte, then load up the S rod with a correctly grain matched full sink Scandi and let her do all of the work for you. You’ll basically achieve the same depths of swing as you would with the full sink Classic Spey line, yet be allowed to manage a lighter weight-in-hand rod to achieve the same fishing goals. 

In truth, a good share of our most productive angling can be done well within the range of 60 to 90 foot deliveries. But there are those situations and occasions where the 110' plus delivery will save the day and this where an authoritive 15' rod will shine, and this is a perfect application for the Highlander Classic, S series, or MKS rods.
