Diamondback Ideal Nymph Rods

The Ideal Nymph range is a series of tactical nymphing rods that has been thoughtfully designed in every possible aspect to be the most effective and pleasant feeling nymphing tools.

The rods have a non-glare matte finish, downlocking matte titanium color hardware with high density premium quality cork grips, Curly Koa wood spacers and compact fighting butts. Rod accents include dark amber color primary wraps and titanium metallic accent wraps. Guide selection and placement on nymphing rods is critical to performance, and Ideal Nymph rods have the right components in the right places. There are three snake guides below the rod tip, which helps counter leader-wrapping problems with long leaders. Two lightweight single foot stripping guides create a smoother surface at the most critical contact areas while the rod is heavily flexed fighting a fish. Dark colored single foot guides cover the area between the snake guides and the stripper guides.

Guide placement is optimized with a stripping guide on the butt section to minimize potential line sag. Ideal Nymph blanks are designed to maximize recovery speed and feel, while still flexing enough to load with mono rigs and lightweight nymphs. All Ideal Nymph rods have a firm backbone that allows for a quick hookset and great fish retention, while having the smooth power transition that allows anglers to apply firm pressure to fish without fear of breaking light tippets.

"The new Ideal Nymph tactical nymphing series from Diamondback Rods has an option for every situation. Whether you want to run a light nymph rig, throw a dry dropper system or even pitch a jig streamer into the murky abyss, this series has you covered! So you wanna fish that 7x tippet? Go ahead! The tippet protection on this rod is incredible and is extremely sensitive so you can detect even the softest strikes. This is a $1,000 rod feel at a $550 price point... you really can't beat it."
