We could write an entire book on the adventure that has led to the development and introduction of the Cross S1 fly rods, but we won’t. Instead, we would rather ask you to try one because the only way to truly understand what we mean is to test one for yourself.

For the 2014 season we introduce five new fast tempo and two medium fast tempo models. All models are also available as blanks.

  • We always test our rods with our own lines and feel they are best suited as a proper match.
This is not a one-man job and several of our staff with long years of casting experience are involved in evaluating this. As a result, we know that the line weights we recommend match the most common casting styles. For example, if you buy a Cross S1 590, we recommend you to buy a Loop line #5. It’s a match that we know will work for most of the casting styles represented. It also provides an ideal match in terms of getting the best performance out of that particular rod.

    Those of you who do not use a Loop line often want to know about your particular line. As we have no technical knowledge of the specifications and characteristics, this question for us is dfficult to answer. There is a plethora of tapers and lengths combined with different casting styles.

 The best advice we can give you is to either try your line(s) on a demo rod or seek out the information you want in web forums or among friends, but a physical test is the best.


  • Action Curve & Rod Tempo

    ROD TEMPO & ACTION

    THE ACTION CURVE describes how the rod bends when loaded
    TC= Tip Curve: Rods with this curve have a high action angle in the tip. ”Tip Action Curve”.
    MC= Mid Curve: Rods with a medium action curve. ”Medium Action Curve”.
    FC= Full Curve: Rods with this curve have a long and deep action curve. ”Full Action Curve”.

    THE ROD TEMPO describes how fast and stiff a rod is
    M= Medium Tempo: A rod with a medium tempo is perceived as softer and more relaxed in tempo when compared to MF and F.
    MF= Medium Fast Tempo: A rod with a medium fast tempo is a bit more moderate in stiffness and tempo.
    F= Fast Tempo: A rod with a fast tempo is perceived as fast and stiff in relation to M and MF.
