The Red Truck Diesel 476-3 Glass Fly Rod Blank
Thanks to a special arrangement with our friends from Red Truck Flyfishing, we are the only place anywhere to buy original, Red Truck fly rod blanks. Red Truck manufactures the Diesel glass fly rod blank in Korea and they offer outstanding performance and superb value. Red Truck glass blanks are manufactured in E-Glass, but don’t be fooled… The steep tapers and spigot ferrules give each blank a crisp, quick action; particularly the #5. The stock Red Truck matching aluminum tube and cotton twill rod sock are included.
The Diesel Series
Red Truck Diesel Fly Rods embody the casting & fishing capabilities of the original California Leland Fly Fishing crew. They combined their experience with the engineering and production mastery of the world’s leading technical fly rod manufacturing facility. The crew designed the Diesel series nearly a decade ago and it hasn’t changed much since then. The reason? The rods simply work and work well. Diesel fly rods have a distinct, classic look that just doesn’t go out of style.
RFT Gear is the only retail outlet in all of Europe offering factory-finished, high-performance Red Truck Diesel fly rods. Red Truck produces the Diesel rods in Korea to the highest standards.
The Red Truck Diesel series features two lovely little S-Glass trout rods for line class #4 and class #5. They built both on beautiful translucent yellow-gold blanks bound in Red Truck’s signature burgundy red windings. The fit and finish are all shelf. For you rod builders, both blanks are also available!
The graphite fly rod models in the Diesel series are light, quick and responsive. The graphite blend is a 30/40 ton mix with a natural grey semi-ground, snake-belly finish. All feature ground ferrules. The windings are burgundy with silver trim and the rings are all stainless steel. All Red Truck graphite fly rods come with a black, powder-coated aluminum tube and black twill sock.
