Once again Scott Mackenzie and the DTX Pro Staff Team have produced another Award winning Range of rods.
The new Shooting Head range of rods have just been voted BEST in TEST of all the Spey rods tested in the April edition of the UK's biggest selling magazine Trout and Salmon.
The Test was carried out by Jim Curry AAPGAI Master Instructor and Gary Champion AAPGAI Master Instructor and FFF Master Casting Instructor.
Rods tested included rods from Hardy's, Orvis, Loop, Guidline, Loomis and C.F Burkheimer and many others.
Jim's comments on the New DTX Shooting Head rod ( i consistantly threw my best loops of the day using the DTX SH which was a joy to use, the tip recovers incredibly quickly creating very fast line speed.)
Gary's comments (ONE HELL OF A ROD, it creates amazing loops and my favorite rod on test.)
The Traditional and Shooting head range of DTX rods are available in sizes from 12ft to 16ft.
Scott has created the DTX Brand, and now has an incredible DTX Pro Staff Team in the UK which includes some of the most qualified Speycasting Instructors in the World, including the most qualified Instructor in the World, and 14 top Ghillie's on Famous Scottish Rivers.

Do you know if there will be someone representing the DTX line of rods at the Spey Fest(Speyclave) in Newaygo, MI in September? This clave is sponsored by Great Lakes Fly Fishing out of Grand Rapids, Mi.
Just woundering because I would like to give the shooting head rod for a spin.

Sorry for the late reply, i contacted Great Lakes Fly shop via e mail, but no answer.
Will call the store next week and see if they would like a few to try, they are really something and we know have a team of Pro Staff like no other Spey rod company, Andrew Toft and Scott are just finishing the new shooting head lines, Andrew used to design for Carron lines, and now works as Pro Staff for DTX.
