Guideline LPX Coastal is the next generation fly rods for coastal fishing featuring environmentally friendly, high-end components and production processes. Totally new materials, a sturdy focus on environment and a new mindset for designing the ultimate rods for saltwater fishing: The LPX Coastal are truly remarkable! An uncompromised rod series made for hardcore fishing with streamers after trophy trout, sea trout hunting along coastal shorelines or your dream trip to tropical destinations. Thanks to the new building technique, we can make longer rods with the same feeling of a shorter one.
The advanced carbon layup in these rods features C.A.P M4.0™ Technology (Complex Axial Pattern) paired with a unidirectional carbon fiber structure for maximum strength and stability in all directions, as well as low weight. To lower the weight further, LPX Coastal is equipped with lightweight titanium stripping guides. For a firm and comfortable grip, we use Super grade cork, which also provides sublime aesthetics to the rod. The matte gray, custom-designed reel seats are hard anodized with blue colored highlights for a pleasant look.
9'3" #5 & #6: The ideal tools for use on calm days on the open coast or in sheltered bays and coves where you need to present small shrimps and fry to cruising feeders that will spook easily. These rods have a crisp and very responsive action that casts nice and tight loops and manages fishing with delicate tippets thanks to a sensitive and well-balanced tip area.
9'3" #7 & 9' #8: The allrounders for coastal flyfishing in Europe. These rods are built to manage larger flies, stronger winds and lines/shooting heads that sink when needed. The low swing-weight and great connection between tip and handle, make them a joy to cast and work during long sessions. The actions are quite fast, but with maintained feel of the load down towards the bottom third of the rod when you challenge them and power up your cast.
9' #10 & #12: The two heavier models in the Coastal Series lend themselves extremely well to either Sea fishing for Halibut, Pollack and Tuna, or for Tropical fishing targeting, Permit, Jacks, Tarpon and other Gamefish that roam in warmer waters. These rods are strong, yet very light and are built to have enough power to fight big fish efficiently from the bottom part of the rod, while maintaining a good casting action through a more tolerant and flexible top half.
The LPX Series is a result of years spent on research and sourcing to achieve a greener flyrod, from both the components to the production. We have significally reduced the amount of dangerous chemicals. For example by using low VOC epoxies for assembly and rod coating. The rods are made using our GL ECO-Tech™ production technique where we avoid grinding the blanks, which normally produces harmful dust at the production facility. It also gives you the structured surface finish on the rod, with added strength as a result. The stripping guides are made out of titanium, and for the single leg guides, we use a gun smoke powder coat finish on a stainless frame instead of chrome plating, to get rid of lead. The rod tubes have a lower diameter and are made with PP (Polypropylene) and recycled polyester tube fabric. The same fabric is used as well for the rod bag.
