The Mystic Advantage

The Mystic proprietary rod blank is the foundation of each quality fly rod produced by this hands-on company in Portland, Michigan. Adding outstanding rod components to an outstanding rod blank produces near magical results. Extra steps and quality materials are incorporated to ensure long-lasting durability of the rod, and attention to aesthetic detail make each rod literally outshine any other on the market. These are standard production criteria for each Mystic fly rod produced.

Best of all, compared to fly rods from other manufacturers, Mystic Fly Rods provide superior value relative to cost.

And the designers at Mystic do not simply mimic approaches used by other manufacturers. When they see a functional need, Mystic incorporates changes in components and construction to ensure the best possible performance of the fly rod in the field. For example:

  • The Mystic 9 foot 8wt fly rod is actually 9 feet three inches long. This is a deliberate Mystic proprietary taper design innovation which softens the tip flex, adding to the presentation without sacrificing distance.
  • Mystic stripping guides use a quad leg frame design for greater lateral stability and strength.
  • Mystic reel seats for flyrods 7 weight and higher incorporate double locking nuts incorporating a poly washer for greater security in keeping the reel in place.

These enhancements add a near negligible increase of 1 ounce or less compared to competitor rod weights. Mystic incorporates these components for the added durability and reel security they provide.
