Adams MAX EVO Fly Rod – 3wt
MAX EVO fly rod is the evolved version of the acclaimed Adams MAX series of premium quality fly rods. Just as its predecessor, this ﬂy rod will perfectly suit every modern nymphing technique. Designed for a top-level competitor, as well as an average angler. Some of the best competition ﬂy anglers of Spain and Europe have helped create this high-performance rod. Over two years of development has resulted in a super-light, fast action, nano carbon ﬁber blank. A technology that allows the creation of very durable rod blanks with a very ﬁne, sensitive tip section paired with a strong backbone power, needed to handle big trout or barbel with ease.
The other advantage of MAX EVO is its extremely quick recovery rate, which guarantees high casting precision and reduced line tangling. The dynamic properties of this blank allow the use of very ﬁne leaders and tippets; essential for greater success in Euro nymphing as increases the sink rate of smaller nymphs. MAX EVO can be called a real lightweight, with the longest model weighing just below 3.5 oz (98 gr) on the scale. Nonetheless, the balance of a rod over 10ft becomes as important as its physical weight. The down-locking reel seat combined with the fighting butt provides an exceptional balance without adding extra weight.
MAX EVO features a 12+1 light wire single-foot guides setup, one snake guide placed right behind the tip-top guide, for easier passage of ﬂy line or excessive knots. This also avoids the line turning around the tip of the rod. The Silicon Carbide (SIC) stripping guide is placed about 20 cm from the cork handle, so line control becomes very easy when Euro nymphing.
