The evolution of the Lefty Kreh TiCr X Series has been fascinating. Imagine Lefty Kreh taking a prototype and saying “this is a nice rod but…” Then imagine new mandrels and as many as 6 prototypes later having him say, “PERFECT!”
Lefty designed the TiCr X Series to be a powerful angling tool. Rod weights 5-8 are designed to present flies at distant targets. Rod weights 9-12 have the power to launch larger flies and to lift an angry fish out of the depths. The reserve power in the TiCr X Series give these rods the ability to carry a lot of line in the air and can easily be overlined for close-in work. The X rod’s blue finish springs to life in a little sunlight, while the Flor grade cork, oversized titanium oxide stripping guides, and uplocking reel seat with cushioned hoods top off this ultimate package of form and function.
