    Volant Rod Series
    Quantity:


    Product Description

    After the success of our popular XA series run of rods, we were ready to start fresh and use the same line of thinking to create an even more refined multi-purpose series.  From small creeks to offshore saltwater, the Volant series will get the job done, and do it extremely well. The series is built around versatility and durability without sacrificing finesse and presentation.  Throughout the lineup, we achieved a medium/fast action rod that achieves presentation, power, and accuracy in perfect balance.  Each model was designed to suit its ideal fisheries, so that your 4wt is dialed in on small stream and stillwater, and your 12wt built with the power to handle whatever the blue water brings up for you.

     Features:

    1. sturdy but sensitive Rating

      Posted by Troutbumm303 on 1st Jun 2017

      When I first held this rod in a 6wt w/ butt, I initially felt it was too big/stiff (more like an 8wt). I was hesitant to keep it but recently fished the Colorado river with it and ran into a few pools holding many large trout. After 2 days of fighting and landing many 6 pound plus fish, I am so glad I had this rod. Casting control was effortless and the sensitivity of the rod assisted in many hook-ups. My arm was not fatigued after 50+ fish as the backbone of the rod took on most of the fight. Paired it with an Atlas reel and I'm telling you, what a combo. Not my best fishing day, but this combo made it one of my most memorable. Total control. Thanks Allen for a affordable superior product.


    2. 12-WT Dream, fishes like a $800 rod and controls monster fish Rating

      Posted by Court Harris on 17th Apr 2017

      I picked up a 12-wt Volant and paired it with my older Kraken 5. Line combo was 350M of 80-lb braided backing and a RIO Tarpon 12wt WFF line, with a sink tip. The combo was slinging 6-inch flies 70-80 ft + all week in the jungle. Loaded up the double haul like a champ. The line guides were large enough to easily pass the big knots and loops during retrieval. The only improvement I would suggest is a bigger fighting butt, and if you do a redesign on the 12-wt, consider adding the upper grip for the epic battles with 200# + tarpon that some of us like the mess with. A beefier 3rd section for lifting is also suggested. A 15-wt model would be a welcome addition before the next trip! I used this rod more towards the end of the trip than my Winston BIII 12 wt because of the better casting.


    3. Passed the test! Rating

      Posted by Snooking Good on 1st Apr 2017

      I purchased the 10 wt which was matched with a Kraken Reel. As soon as I received it I put some good line in it and head out into my backyard. That's what I call the Florida Everglades! Once in Flamingo ENP I got to one of my favorite creeks and waited for the right tide. This is where the test starts, I was able to make the cast required with accuracy to a pod of rolling Tarpon. On my second presentation I had a 80 lbs Tarpon inhaled the fly. This rod and reel were able to handle the multiple acrobatics and the brute force. In the end I lost the fish his abrasive mouth managed to wear thru my bite tippet. I admit I use light bite tippets to get those weary fish to eat. But the rod delivered the fly and fought the battle passing my test with flying colors.

      What more could you ask for?? I was looking for a streamer rod and purchased the 7 weight. (Paired with a kraken reel) This rod has a smooth action and works great for larger more aggressive trout. What I didn't know about this rod is how versatile it is. Call it unconventional, but I use this rod to fish very light tippet with size 18s and 20s also. There is a local watershed I fish where I could use anywhere from size 1 articulated steamers all the way to 20s in the same morning. I didn't want to have to hike back to the truck or carry another setup, so one day I tried the volant 7 weight out on light tippet. I couldn't believe the amount of feel and tippet protection this rod had either. Have done this 4 outings without a break off!
      Great product!!


    5. It's a keeper! Rating

      I wasn't very excited to buy a "red' rod, but thought I'd try it anyway based on the reviews. Happy to see that it isn't actually red, but more like a burnt red/orange. Paired with my black Alpha III fly reel with orange backing makes for a hot looking combo.

      More importantly, finally had a little less wind for a change and I got a chance to try it on salt water. Not the best time of year for fishing in West Central Florida, but I did manage a couple sea trout. Nothing that put the rod to a serious stress test, but I was able to confirm that it's fun to cast.


    6. RED HOT ROD ! Rating

      Posted by WEashington Johnson on 25th Nov 2016

      Hey it doesn't look the picture. Better. The red is more of dark cranberry red than the photo shows l plan to match it up with a Omega 5 series 11-15wt.
      This setup will be for my big game when l go to Florida next year to visit my sister l can try it out on some bones fish and tarpon. l had just got the Azimuth rod redeeming my points. That rod l have used, no bites yet, but the 10'-7wt. is setup for spey casting with single hand rods. So can't wait to try out my new 12wt. rod. l will find some kind of fish to go hunt down with where l live. l hear there are bonita tuna to be had off the coast of Vancouver Island. Gotta go get a guide and try my luck !


    7. smooth action Rating

      great medium action rod!


    8. WOW! Great Rod Rating

      Posted by Ranger on 27th Sep 2016

      Bought a couple of these rods for a trip I was taking to Montana. Fished several rivers and the rod was fantastic! Good action and will cast a mile (if that's your thing). I landed a nice 22" brownie on a sow bug, and the rod never failed. Put good tension and played the fish well on its runs. I paired it with a Trout II reel and it worked great. If I had to do it again I think I'd go with an 2x oversized reel, but that's a personal preference of mine I do on my rods for better weight distribution. Highly recommend this rod, especially if you're new and trying to results from proper casting fundamentals.


    9. Real nice action Rating

      Posted by Howard Fiander on 24th Sep 2016

      I was amazed at the price since I am a VIP member. Couldn't believe how fast the shipping was to Canada. I went and used my rod the first weekend and went to a stocked trout pond just to try it out. I caught about 18 nice rainbows in the 3 to 5 pound range. My 10 foot 4 weight handled like a charm. As with most new rods, I just have to try out a couple of different lines because the one that I had did cast okay, but being a 10 foot rod, I might have to go with a 5 weight line.


    10. Makes an amateur caster look good. Rating

      Posted by JOEY TAYLOR on 1st Aug 2016

      This rod has helped me tremendously with my cast. I can cast farther and more accurate and I honestly believe this is an attribute of this rod. Great rod at a great price. I will be using this one for a long time to come.
