Kirk Deeter from Angling Trade Magazine writes the following about the Radian.

The premise for Radian is fairly straightforward—the company bills it as a model that combines ‘fast’ and ‘feel’ unlike anything else out there. Having fished the Radian for a few weeks now, we have to agree that it definitely feels unique, and performs as billed—it generates power and impressive line speed, but is impressively subtle and sensitive in more nuanced, technical casting situations.”

The rod uses what Scott calls ReAct technology. The thought is that distance, control and accuracy are compromised by vibrations in the rod during casting. ReAct counters vibration by increasing recovery of the blank without the need to stiffen the rod with more material.c

If the technical details sound like too much to process, you simply need to pick one of these rods up and cast it. The “holy cow” factor takes care of the rest. They also happen to be some of the most aesthetically beautiful rods we’ve seen in a while. They’re made in America, four-piece models range from 8’-6” 4-weights to 10-foot 8-weights In the context of production fly rods, this is going to be one of the major statements for 2014.
