Gun Control No, not that kind. But “hand cannon” might be a term that comes to mind when you’re on the flats with a Cobalt rod.
Think of your fly as a projectile, your line a powder charge, that Permit sliding by at 70 feet as a silhouette. Aim and fire.
Cobalt rods are built on a hyper-fast blank crafted to deliver blistering line speed and wind conquering loops, with enough flex in the tip and mid-section to allow you feel the action load but plenty of muscle down deep to pick up that 70 feet of line for a quick re-cast.
Based on our popular SS-Salt blanks with dialed hardware and proprietary Lockdown reel seat, Cobalt is our next evolution in saltwater performance.
Available in a full range of calibers.

Great Rods

These rods have really impressed me. They are light, but have strength. Track great and are accurate. They also are forgiving when excitement temporarily blocks technique. The Cobalts are both casting and fishing rods which is a rare combo. Fit and finish are sharp and the new reel seat is another example of great design by Waterworks Lamson.

7wt.: Awesome streamer rod (trout and bass) with various sink tips from 10' to 25' (240 - 250 grain). Rod is so crisp it feels like an extension of your hand when you manipulate/strip the fly - unbelievable like that. Good lifting power, but the rod won't wear you out in a long day of casting rabbit pelts and cones attached to hooks. Will cast a floating line just fine too, for close up work, you'll appreciate a line that is a little heavier.

8wt. : Bigger streamer rod and general saltwater application rod (bones, redfish, even fresh water carp situations) and casts a floating line (redfish taper) well in that role. Fishes/casts an intermediate tip line like a dream Tracks well, feels responsive in both the cast and while fishing, has lifting power. Just a fine general purpose 8 wt.

9 wt. : Been using these for salmon and steelhead. They are lightweight nines, but don't sacrifice the lifting power as other modern day rods on the market do only to achieve good casting. These are sensitive, recover quick, generate line speed but are not clubs. I wouldn't hesitate using these in salt, just haven't had a chance to (yet). Or pike (yet).

Problem solving hybrid-grip

I have a pile of $500-$900 fly rods that are basically shot because the front of the full-wells cork grips are destroyed from saltwater fishing. The humid environment and thumb pressure from casting heavy flies, fly lines, and fighting big fish takes a toll on the cork. It's about time a high-quality rod now has addressed this problem. The Cobalt rods cast like a dream, and have the durability to be useful for many seasons to come.

Known for reels, but rods are fantastic

I was really impressed with this rod. The Lockdown feature means you never drop your reel in the ocean by accident. I will be heading to Mexico over the holidays and my setup will be in my bag.
