The best of all worlds!!!

I can't believe how much I love fishing this new rod from Scott. I had the privilege of casting this rod at the IFTD show in Vegas where it won all of the awards that you're heard about. There, I found that Scott has taken an artistic and innovative approach to popular fast action rod market. The Radian really does an amazing job of being very fast, versatile, and sensitive...all at the same time. With being said,I have many Sage rods that I love, the ONE included however I found myself still needing to own this rod. Simply put, it is the my favorite and most used rod on a daily basis in my quiver. I cannot recommend the versatility, speed, and sensitivity of this fishing tool enough.
My all arounder
I have this in a 5 wt. and really like it for anything from dries to nymphs to smaller streamers. Smooth casting and has the power to get those further casts out there. Looks great and am contemplating the 6 or 7 wt. Another outstanding rod from Scott!
Radian "Rules for streamers & more ".
My wife treated me to a new 10' 7wt Scott Radian last year. This is my second Radian rod and I can't rave about them enough. The Radian 7wt is perfect for casting large trout and medium pike flies. I still prefer a 9wt or bigger for flies better resembling road kill. My Radian 7wt should be a blast on the beaches of Mexico!
Money well spent
I have been fishing the 9 ft 6wt for about 4 months now. I test-cast a Winston B3X and Sage One side by side with the Radian twice for a pretty good amount of time. Grateful for the patience of the fly shop rep. The Radian was the perfect balance of all the things I liked in the Winston and Sage. Great at casting line at a distance but easy to dial in at short shots as well. Sensitive with backbone. I fish primarily tailwaters in the Southeast casting dries, dry droppers, nymph rigs and streamers. I have enjoyed fishing the Radian in all circumstances without finding fault yet. The service, when purchasing from Vail Valley was excellent, efficient, and delivery was prompt.
