The NZ Special Meridian is the ultimate high line speed trout rod for battling big fish in gnarly conditions. If you want to drop a dry fly at short range on monster brown sitting in skinny water then this is not your rod - but if you’re wanting a rod that can bust through the toughest Norwester on a day when your buddies have pulled out their spinning rods then the NZ special is your stick. This super fast rod is an expert only stick, it handles big casts, big flies and big fish in the toughest conditions. The great thing is the rod is light in the hand, its high recovery blank creates tight efficient loops and its light tip will mean you can fish everything from a small dry fly to a big streamer on a sink tip ....... a little unique? Maybe, we just call it special.
