NT11 fly rods are the result of taking advantage of the very latest and most sophisticated SOA (State of Art) graphite materials used in the aerospace industry today. When applied to and used in flyrods, some remarkable benefits are achieved. The most evident effect being an amazing recovery power and crispness in the blanks, created by combining the incredible armoring and strength increasing effects of T1100G graphite with layers of the highest modulus graphite we’ve ever used in any flyrods to date. For you as an angler, the above properties are built into a series of rods that have the lowest blank weight, yet the highest break strain of any other rod in our line up and probably also on the entire flyrod market. After many years of building premium, lightweight and strong 6-piece flyrods and knowing that no sacrifices are made in performance, strength, weight or balance, we find it only natural that this new range of rods also is multi-piece and transportable in your luggage when travelling. We have worked hard and deliberately to keep the value of these rods maximized without sacrificing quality in workmanship or components.
THE NT11 FAST FULL FLEX SERIES
Are you the type of angler that really loves those crispy, almost explosive type of rods for high line speed? But at the same time, you would like to feel more how the very bottom of the rod flexes, giving you a little bit more time to set up your cast? Let us introduce our new type of rod action, the NT11 F3 - Fast Full Flex!
These rods give you more time to set up your cast, and to slow down a little bit if wanted. But don’t let that fool you or believe that these rods are in anyway “slow”! The kick comes a tiny bit later, but you will still feel the power and extreme line speed as the rod unloads. The recovery in these rods are incredible thanks to the T1100 material. We have pushed the rod curve all the way down through the butt section and enhancing that type of wanted action by making the tip sections noticeably stiffer than the regular NT11. This also gives you a big lifting power when using longer Spey lines or heavier sinking heads as it naturally slows you down, getting time to really get that line out of the water. The rod will remind you of the older parabolic type of rods that flexes all the way through your hands, but with a clear feeling of a fast and crispy rod with the best, state of the art technology there is!
FAST FULL FLEX ROD MODELS
13’ #8/9 Fast Full Flex Scandi/Spey 32-39 gr / 490-600 grains
With the great benefits from the T1100 materials, we have developed this full flexing rod that really bends all the way through the handle. Due to the amazing carbon technology this rod will still give you that crispy kick! This rod will cover most types of Spey fishing and is what many would say the perfect allround double hand rod for salmon, big trout or steelhead. A 25gr 4D+ Compact Body matched with a standard 4D 15’/9gr tip is a great pro tip here for those tighter situations. The 4D Body F #9/10/11 26g with a 4D 15’/9gr tip will give you a bit longer line for those mid-size to larger rives. And this rod action of course fits perfectly with longer spey lines as well!
14´ #9/10 Fast Full Flex 36-43 gr / 550-660 grains
The amazing technology and T1100 material start to show its capacity even more as the rod gets longer. The 14´ Fast Full Flex will give you that smooth and “easy going” casting style but will still reply distinctively if you add some power to your cast. The stiffer tip section makes it easy to lift heavier sinking lines while maintaining a relaxed approach to the cast. Loading this rod with the 3D+ Shooting heads will give you a shorter and easy-going setup, and are available in several densities. If you prefer longer lines, the 4D 32 gram Float or S3/S5 body with a 15´ or 18´ tip will match perfectly for those larger rives.
15´ #10/11 Fast Full Flex 43-50+ gr / 660-770+ grains
What can we say about this rod, it truly brings out the best of modern state of the art technology and manage to combine that feeling of those “old school” deep rods. If you like fast rods, do not let the full/deep flex fool you to believe that these rods are in any way soft or slow. The Fast Full Flex will give you the chance to be a bit more relaxed whilst setting up your Spey cast but will without any problem manage a faster and more aggressive style. This rod has with its stiffer tip section great lifting power and with a smooth movement, any sinking line will come out of the water easily. By choosing the 4D 39 gram body with the 18´ 12 gram tips you will have a setup that will cast far and precise with ease! As a 15´ rod often is used for sinking lines, make sure to try it out with the 4D S3/S5 body together with the heavier 18´ tips. If you enjoy casting longer spey lines, this rod will cover that perfectly with its full flexing action curve and stiff tip. And being that powerful, it will manage lighter tournament Spey lines as well.
- T1100 CAP Technology gives uncompromised strength, performance and reliability.
- Every rod is fitted with beautiful FLOR-grade cork and on rear grips and fighting butts you’ll find powder cork reinforcement. FLOR is the top grade of cork with the highest density and strength that will stand years of usage and remain pretty.
- Titanium lightweight framed stripping guides. Highest quality stainless steel single leg running guides with titanium coating.
- The reel seats are custom designed by our own R&D team, having a hard anodized very scratch resistant semi-matte finish with copper details.
- The blanks have a matte satin finish with deep carbon grey coating and a slight spiral pattern that gives the rods a stealthy non-flashy look.
- All guides are wrapped with burgundy thread and on all ferrules, stripper guides and logo areas they are finished with subtle light burgundy trims.
- Each rod is delivered with a light and strong rod bag made from 4-ways stretch nylon and rod tubes are made from light polycarbonate with a strong polyester fabric cover and a natural leather logo patch.
- 25-YEAR ORIGINAL OWNER WARRANTY. The NT11 fly rods comes with a 25-year original owner warranty. This warranty covers faults in material and/or workmanship. During the warranty period (from the date of purchase) you will be entitled to the repair or replacement (at our discretion) of damaged or defective sections of your rod. If the rod model is discontinued and/or we are unable to repair or replace a rod section, we will replace your rod with a comparable rod model (at our discretion).

NT11 F3 Fast Full Flex fly rods use an ultra-elastic 46T Low Resin Material which makes it possible to create feather-light blanks with a crisp feeling that greatly improves sensitivity. Layers of T1100 graphite with extremely high tensile- and compression strength are then added both on the inside and outside of the 46T material, creating an incredibly strong wall and foundation for unmatched performance, durability and reliability in the blanks. Together with this, we use a carbon-scrim material with a proprietary CAP (Complex Axial Pattern) with 0, 45, 90 and -45 degrees, Cross Construction structure. This produces a lightning-fast recovery speed, increases the casting distance and improves the compression strength. High-strength Torayca NanoAlloy®-resin reinforced graphite improves the toughness and increases durability in the rods.
Casting and fish-fighting cause countless amounts of flexing and unloading of the blank, the Nano-material prevents damage due to external shocks, internal stresses or fatigue. The material properties implemented into our NT11 blanks can be described with these simple words; Extreme Durability, Low Weight and Unmatched Recovery Speed. Making a strong blank while making it extremely light is the ultimate goal of fishing rod development. But in a standard manufacturing process, a rod runs the risk of breaking too easily if it is light and with thin walls. It also often becomes too heavy if it is built to be strong enough. The properties and the performance in our NT11 rods are difficult to imitate by ordinary manufacturers as we use the best available materials together with the best available manufacturing- and reinforcement-technologies to achieve an ideal structure in the blanks.
