Fly rods

P5 Evil Black


Are you a real bad boy? A villain who wants to spread fear amongst fish and fellow fisherman? Look no further! If Darth Vader had a fly rod this would be the one. The color black dominates with gorgeous red ferrule trimming to give it that final Evil touch.

The original idea for this color combination came from Marc “the Limp Cobra” Fauvet.

The overall weight of the P5 Evil Black is ca. 8 grams more than the comparable Stealth or Forest models with wooden spacers. The only reason for that is the aluminum spacer used in the reel seat. The top 3 sections have the same weight as on the other models so the swing weight is approximately the same.

The P5 blank:

How many rods will you have in your hand while standing in waist-deep water 3 miles from your car? Yes, most likely only one.

Specialized rods are great, especially if you know exactly what challenges you will face on the water. But if you are exploring new territories or your home water offers a wide variety of unpredictable fishing situations you are better off having something that does everything well. That is what the P5 blanks were designed for.

This rod excels in average fishing distances from 5 to 20 meters. The med-fast action and the lightning fast recovery helps you cast easily and precisely. Presenting a no.18 CDC is just as easy as chucking a heavily weighted streamer to 20 meters.

So can it cast far? Sure it can. The sweet point of this rod is not distance chasing but fishing though.

All our rods are hand built one at a time and endlessly customizable. Please make an inquiry on availability and on custom options before placing your order.
