Quality –  Horizon Tactical Competition Nymph rods utilize state-of-the art Nanohoop graphite technology. Top quality fittings and feature bleached AAAA grade cork and reversed half-wells grips.

Balance Control – The utilisation of a down-locking reel seat on the 3-weight rod transfers the rod’s swing-weight further down the rod to enhance feel and sensitivity in the tip. The 6-weight rod has an up-locking reel seat with double locking rings. There is a small fighting butt on both rod models.

Measurement Wraps – Incorporated into the superb finishes of the rods are measurements wraps, placed 30cm and a further 20cm from the butt, giving a total length of 50cm from the end of the fighting butt. This allows the angler quick and easy access to important measurements.

Competition Guides –An additional single-foot guide per section reduces line slap and lateral line movement along the blank. An inverted stripping guide reduces the chance of line-wrap.

Stealth – Black fittings and wraps on a matte black blank reduces rod flash and improves the angler’s stealth on the water.
