Scott Sector Fly Rod Review

The Scott Sector has been one of the hardest fly rods to find and at the top tier of saltwater fly rods since it was released in 2019. With the heat of trout fishing winding down it is time to start thinking about gearing up for your next saltwater trip. With the Scott Sector in your hands, perfect fly placement and putting pressure on huge fish is easier than ever. Whether you are chasing roosters, permit, or MEGA tarpon the Sector is the perfect saltwater stick.

After putting the Sector line of fly rods to the test, it is fair to say that very few rods can compete with this cannon of a rod. It certainly has a different and unique feel when compared to other saltwater rods. Sensitivity is everything with the Sector. Where most salt rods feel like broomsticks with the majority of action in the tip, Scott has developed the Sector to bend more into the middle of the rod, providing significantly more feel to the angler, yet it remains powerful enough to blast a 70' cast into the wind. I have found that you can easily make this happen with 1-2 false casts. Reducing false casts allows you to perform when time is of the essence. Like when you finally spot a 30lb. bull redfish only 25 feet from the boat and need to get the fly in there NOW. This matter brings up effectiveness at distance. Accuracy anywhere from twenty feet to eighty feet is nearly effortless. Ease of casting with the Sector combined with how lightweight it feels in an angler's hand makes a day of ripping long casts with heavier rods pleasurable.

The Sector's performance and durability matched with top of the line components and stellar good looks consistent with all Scott fly rods, put this fly rod at the top for Saltwater specific applications for any and all salt species. Stop by our Bozeman fly shop to cast one today!

Scott Sector

Imagine a rod that casts tight high line speed loops effortlessly and turns over your leader straight into the wind; a rod that delivers the fly on target with just one false cast, and can pick it back up and redirect if the fish changes course; a rod that is intuitive so you can focus on the fish instead of your cast; a rod that feels light and alive in your hand and has the touch and feel needed to make short quick shots or float the fly in quietly. All that, plus a rod hand crafted with the very best components to ever grace a fly rod-

Introducing the all new Sector Series of high performance, hand crafted fly rods from Scott.

Sector fly rods advance our award winning ReAct technology with new tapers and our new Carbon Web. They also introduce the most cutting-edge fly rod components ever created.

Scott’s all new Carbon Web technology improves torsional stability and rod durability by encasing the unidirectional fibers in a web of ultra-light multi-directional carbon fiber.

These fibers help counteract torsional forces giving you better tracking and power for long line pickups and redirecting casts.

They also help to reduce the propagation of micro fractures from stress or impact that can run in unidirectional layups.

Sector rods are fit with newly designed components that defy harsh saltwater environments, redefine reliability, and enhance angler experience.

They feature all new Ceracoil stripping guides with nickel titanium frames and super slick Zirconia inserts, along with Recoil nickel titanium snake guides for low friction and corrosion free performance. The guide sets are PVD coated in a low reflective coating for even greater durability and stealth.

The reel seats are milled from aircraft grade aluminum and feature self-indexing slide hoods, extra deep knurling to easily turn lock rings with wet hands, type 3 mil-spec hard coat in non-reflective flat black, and line weight engravings for quick rod identification.

Flor grade cork grips are turned to our modified wells shape, and the new fighting butts feature a thick soft rubber for greater comfort in tough fights or while bracing on long casts.

Carbon Web

-Scott’s all new Carbon Web technology increases torsional stability and rod durability by encasing the unidirectional fibers in a web of ultra-light multi-directional carbon fiber. The result is more torsional control for increased accuracy while changing casting angles at distance.


- ReAct technology combines our X-Core design with a new complex materials and taper system to create a break-through in fast action rod design. Distance, control and accuracy are compromised by waves that vibrate in the rod, even after the cast has been made. Simply making the rod stiffer to stop these vibrations kills feel. ReAct counteracts energy sapping vibrations by speeding the recovery of the blank without the need to stiffen the rod with more material. This puts the feel in fast. And that’s a really good thing.


- Scott's all new FiberFuse enhanced resin system uses new chemistry to create bonds between each graphite fiber that are over 20% stronger than conventional epoxy resins.


-X-Core combines the industry’s leading composite technologies with cutting edge design. We use fast taper mandrels with low-mass, thin-walled blanks and proprietary ARC reinforcement to create rods that have stiffness with feel, and stability with sensitivity.

Multi Modulus Blanks

-By varying the fiber tensile modulus along the length of the rod, we’re able to precisely control the stiffness and recovery speed of our blanks.


ARC- Scott is the leader in carbon blank reinforcements. Our latest ARC technology adds hoop strength to our blanks without adding weight and counteracts torque that can reduce casting accuracy and line control.

No need to continue dreaming about your perfect fly rod- It’s here. The new Sector Series from Scott.

Come cast the Sector in the 6-weight through the 10-weight at our Bozeman fly shop before you head out on your next salty expedition!
