Diamondback Clout Fly Rod

Diamondback

Delivery 5-7 business days

This is a  diehard trout angler’s dream rod. Designed specifically for accurate casts, subtle mends, and that perfect blend of power and finesse, diamondback has created a gem!

The first thing you’ll notice about Diamondback’s new Clout rod is the distinct and minimal style grip “LINK Grip.” Diamondback’s new LINK Grip combines aesthetic appeal together with industry leading functionality and innovation. The LINK Grip gives anglers the ability to do something they have never been able to do before…..cast the blank, not the cork. An angler is connected to the fly rod through the grip. Much of "how a rod feels" immediately develops from this first rod-user handshake. Diamondback's LINK Grip allows more feeling of the rod's internal action, balancing comfort with sensitivity and control.

The LINK Grip negates the great amount of pressure needed to hold the rod because the fingers settle between the carefully shaped cork rings. Hand and wrist fatigue are dramatically reduced even during extensive casting and fish fighting. When you add the hook setting advantages, increased sensitivity, versatility, and comfort….it’s a hands down difference from traditional cork that begs to be picked up.

The Clout rod is designed utilizing two unique manufacturing applications, Diverse Modulus Design (DMD) and Core Reinforcement Construction (CRC). DMD is the precise application of a variety of pre-impregnated composite fibers in controlled configurations to finely tune and balance the rod, while Core Reinforcement Construction (CRC) is a remarkable rod construction system to bolster blank structure, thereby increasing the circular or "hoop strength" of the rod without piling on added weight. The result is a powerful, smooth casting rod with refined stiffness, recovery speed and structural strength.

Clout rods feature a ruby red painted blank with matching wraps and silver trim, while each ferrule has distinct diamond shaped alignment marks. Fitted with thin diameter stainless hard chrome snake guides and titanium strippers with Nano Light inserts. The distinct open framed diamond cut aluminum reel seat and Diamondback branded high quality cork grip. All Clout rods come in a Diamondback embroidered heavy duty cloth bag and a graphite rod tube.

    DIAMONDBACK DIVERSE MODULUS DESIGN (DMD)

    Modern, multi-piece fly rods are a complex assembly of segments from materials that must all function together as one system. To insure specific performance and consistent rod action, Diamondback design utilizes its detailed engineering function known as "Diverse Modulus Design (DMD).

    DMD is the precise application of a variety of pre-impregnated composite fibers in controlled configurations to finely tune and balance the rod. Taken to exacting measures, this technique refines stiffness, overall blank strength and speed of recovery in specific sections of each rod.

    The results of such painstaking material research and resin/fiber schedules are rods that produce smooth, effortless casts. Such attention to materials and construction will insure the user of a rod capable of maximum performance when battling determined fish, overcoming windswept casting conditions and surviving unexpected punishment from endless fishing trips.

    DIAMONDBACK CORE REINFORCEMENT CONSTRUCTION (CRC)

    Fly rods are created to perform when they are flexed. Thus Diamondback rods are designed with features to counteract the increased loads repeatedly applied to specific areas from endless flexing.

    Diamondback's Core Reinforcement Construction (CRC) is a remarkable rod construction system to bolster blank structure, thereby increasing the circular or "hoop strength" of the rod without piling on added weight.

    Isolating and harnessing the added pressures from flexing stress during a cast reduces transmission of uneven fly line waves and allows greater casting accuracy.

    DIAMONDBACK LINK GRIP

    (Available on CLOUT rod series)

    A caster is connected to the fly rod through the grip. Much of "how a rod feels" immediately develops from this first rod-user handshake.

    Diamondback's LINK GRIP allows more feeling of the rod's internal action. The grip balances comfort with sensitivity and control. This minimal grip design allows the caster immediate sensations from the rod's action. The ribbed area provide relaxed comfort.

    The LINK GRIP negates the great amount of pressure most anglers apply to their rod handles because the fingers settle between the carefully shaped cork rings. Hand and wrist fatigue are dramatically reduced even during extensive casting and fish fighting activity.
