Scott Mackenzie DTX Atlas 14ft 9in #10 6 piece Spey Rod in Immaculate Condition. This rod has been really lightly fished and is in excellent shape. Superbly finished in a light grey colour with alignment dots, a top quality cork handle and a really classy black reel seat, this 6 piecer fits into almost any suitcase, making it ideal for overseas travel. The rod, broken down, measures 32in (82cm) but even with the case it's only 34in (86cm).Ideal for the bigger rivers of Norway, Russia, B. I'm moving to shorter rods - hence reason for sale. The Mackenzie Atlas rods are raising the bar, this is not a promise but reality. The Atlas rods are one of the very best rods we have ever fished with.
They cast like a dream and have a nice progressive action with fast recovery. No wonder the 13,7ft 9wt Atlas rod won the best in test in double handed rod for Trout and Salmon magazine, the UK's premier fishing magazine, and it has had great reviews in other publications. With the clever design of this rod the Mackenzie DTX team (Designed Through eXperience) created a rod series that can cast both Scandi and Skagit style lines equally well.Some other rod companies claim this, Mackenzie actually did it. The Atlas rods feature a slightly shorter handle, making it easy to load your rod. The finish is top notch and the handle is made from quality cork with classy composite cork accents. The new quality double nut, down locking reel seat features a black glossy finish. All Atlas rods come with a handy triangular rod tube for easy transportation. A great bonus are the alignment dots, something all rods should have.
When you've put you rod together and go to the water to make your first casts you will notice it at once, or better put, you won't notice a thing. These rods cast like a one piece rod, one of the things why we believe they are the best travel rods out on the market today. The Mackenzie Atlas rods are progressive but have a fast recovery, making them both fun to cast and fish with.What sets them apart from other rods is that you can really power them. By that I mean you can create very fast line speeds by really jerking the rods with your bottom hand. There are very few companies that make a rod who can do this without making the rod very hard. Those rods feel more like a broomstick than a fishing rod. This is why the Mackenzie rods are such great casting and fishing tools. It's no longer a secret that high line speed will let you cast further and much easier. The Atlas rods do just that, make casting easier and give you more distance! What makes a certain rod the'best' for you will aways be personal, but the Mackenzie Atlas series should be on every ones short list for sure! Save on travel cost by airplane. Casts just as good as a 4-piece rod.
