This spinning rod has been the cornerstone of the Reliant coast series since 2014. It out-performs everything in its class.
- Length: 9’10”
- Pcs: 5+
- Lure Weight: 10-30gr
- Action: Fast-Progressive
- Power: Medium
The S910 is just under 10’ in length when configured with the long butt section and is the heaviest of the “S” series rod range. This rod will handle all but the heaviest coastal fishing situations. How many times have you wished you could stand on the beach or even comfortably wade and cover a reef, broken bottom or any target you need to be able to reach? The S910 is a great all-round Seatrout rod and you can really reach out with this rod. The fast, progressive action combines power with super touch and control in all conditions. Rated up to 30 grams, the S910 performs remarkably well with all swimming lures in its class. It packs down to approximately 55cm and comes with two interchangeable screw-in butt sections. A zip case is included.
Sometimes we fish with conventional gear. Sometimes conditions and certain situations favor it. Like so many others we know, we like the flexibility. We can cover a lot of water and it’s every bit as serious as when we fish with fly.
We started fishing Seatrout on the Scandinavian coast nearly 30 years ago. Back then our friends in Denmark were building their own spinning rods from carbon/glass composite fly rod blanks. They knew exactly the action they wanted and it apparently wasn’t available in a factory-made spinning rod.
When we decided to build a few Reliant conventional rods for the coast, we had specific criteria in mind. Naturally we thought back to this light, parabolic action everyone wanted. We also wanted to build them so that we and all our friends would want to fish with them. Finally, we knew we had to build them with the same quality and attention to detail found in modern fly rods.
There are very few two-piece fly rods remaining on the market today. Blank and Ferrule construction has advanced to the point that 4-, 5- and 6- piece rods perform just was well as those with fewer sections. We knew we had to make our conventional rods following the same formula. The problem to solve was the handle. Coast anglers want a long rear handle and we quickly figured out that the more sections our blanks had, the less room we would have to work with for the handle design.
Revolutionary “S” model
The first “S” models all featured interchangeable “+” handle extensions to create different overall handle lengths. The screw-connection is unique to Reliant rods and is fail-proof. The main reason for the “+” butt extension was always to move the first ferrule away from the end of the handle. This allows for a multi-piece rod with a long-handle without creating a weak-point at the front of the grip. Only Reliant multi-piece Spinning and Casting rods offer this feature. The short butt extension was actually an afterthought to give folks who fished from the boat or a float tube a shorter handle alternative.
