Totally new materials, a sturdy focus on environment and a new mindset for designing the ultimate rods for saltwater- and predator fishing: The LPX Coastal are truly remarkable! An uncompromised rod series made for hardcore fishing with streamers after trophy trout, seatrout hunting along coastal shorelines or your dream trip to tropical destinations. Thanks to the new building technique, we can make longer rods with the same feeling of a shorter one.
The new materials and carbon layup create extremely “light tip rods” that gives us the possibility to extend the rod while maintaining the fast acceleration throughout the casting stroke. The lighter blank also reduces fatigue to the wrist and feels like a 9ft when you cast. All in all, same properties as the 9ft length but with greater reach. This is the reason for making our 5-6-7 weight rods in 9’3” length. The extra 3”/7,5cm length adds extra margin between the water and rod tip. This brings better line control when casting, especially when you are wading. We strongly mean that these 9’3” rods aren’t any more affected by wind than regular 9’ rods. Forcing a rod through the wind is more of an issue when rods reach lengths of 10’ and over and become more tip heavy.
The 8-10-12wt rods are kept at 9ft in order to fight the larger fish these are made for and to keep down the pressure on the wrist with these heavier lines. These rods are also more targeted towards the tropical angler that often fish from a boat and doesn’t need the extra reach.

Compared with our previous saltwater models the LPX Coastal rods are lighter, crisper, livelier and feature a slightly deeper curve. This makes them easier to cast and more tolerant to raw force or excessive wrist movement which we often use “accidentally” while trying to achieve the longest casts.
