T6 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 T6 Evil Black is ca. 11 grams more than the comparable Stealth or Forest models built 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 T6 blank:
If you are looking for a 6wt rod that is capable of taming big trout but has the sensitivity to present smaller dries and nymphs, don’t look any further. We managed to build a balanced blank that still gives you plenty of feedback when casting a short line but at the same time it will make your life easier when you're trying to reach that big fish on the other side of the river.
It is lighter in the hand than most 5wt rods you'll find but has unexpected power reserve in the butt section. We use this rod for a lot of different types of fishing: chucking streamers to big trout, bass, asp or zander, using multi-nymph rigs or presenting bigger dries. It is a very versatile rod: you can use it with 5, 6 or if you have a smooth casting style even with 7wt lines without any problems. This will give you countless opportunities to fish the rod in a number of different situations.
Given the sensitivity of these blanks some people might think that they are not powerful enough to reach serious distances. Well, here is the video to prove that is not so:
