Thomas & Thomas' new Contact II has set the new bar for how a Euro-nymphing rod should perform. It's been so well received, it even won the Fly Fisherman Gear Guide "Best New Euro Rod" category for 2021.
Thomas & Thomas Contact II Feature Review
The innovative Contact II blank construction utilizes five different types of premium quality carbon and fiberglass fibers, bound together by our proprietary aerospace resin system. Aligning these fibers at strategic angles as the Contact II blank is rolled improves accuracy, sensitivity, and strength. Components have been carefully selected to maximize performance and comfort. Improved guide spacing moves a “Low Rider” style stripping guide to the butt section of each Contact II, which decreases line sag from the angler’s hand to the first guide, keeping your flies where you want them and not pulling them back towards you.
