Thanks for this. I am interested in what you are offering and you mentioned the opportunity for custom handles. If I send you what I want can you PM with how much more that would be? Not really concerned about reel seat. Good with what you offer.
I just grabbed a quick pic as I left the house trying to show the mid swell size difference in detail. The handle size is gonna suit most people well. I understand if it's not to your taste.Half wells in the diagram, but full wells in the pic. Then this image is cut off? Confusing

That isn't something we are gonna do right now. Maybe in the future. Something for us to look into.Thanks for this.

We have never used the CC method. I don’t think it is a bad method as it gives some information, but it is kinda one dimensional (and rods are 3 dimensional) in my opinion. We do recommend a true to line weight on the 4wt although Rio Gold is fine on it also. I know that doesn’t give you the angle but it does let you know it is a true 4wt.hi matthew,
do you know the aa- measurement of anomaly z graphene in 8,6 f #4?
thanks for answer!
Dillon, I don't meant to answer for the designer himself (Taylor designs both his rods and reels) but I recommend his new Revolt. It is a smooth, totally ridged reel with a carbon disc stacked drag and an X frame, handsomely machined. (Matthew, Dillon is my long time west coast fishing partner and friend)Which reel is the best match for the 6wt rod?
Hmmmm. I would throw out three options.Which reel is the best match for the 6wt rod?
We are working on a new fast action rod, but it is a long way from release. It will probably be a fall 2021 release.Hi Matthew,
I have been thinking about a new 9ft 6 wt rod for some time. I have been fishing a Scott Radian for the last few years. The other current rods in my trout kit are 4 and 5 wt Sage Ones, except for a 5wt Method. Last year, I fished Richards 6wt Sky and liked it better than my Radian. Lighter and crisply fast.
I’ve been thinking about your new anomaly z. However, Richard told me you are coming out with a new fast graphene rod this winter. I‘d like to compare the two. Since, the z is on sale Friday, I’d like to take advantage of it. Will the new rod come out in time to order and return the z should I like the new rod better? I understand your trial period is thirty days.
With all that said, I have a hunch I may like the medium/fast action of the z. Who says, (besides maybe, Richard) all trout rods should be super fast? A little action diversity in the kit might be a good thing...
Thanks for the reel recommendations. What about the T1, as it’s on sale? They are all very handsome reels. Looking forward to being in the Taylor Rod family soon...
That is a tough question for me to answer. I have never cast an NTi so I can’t compare. I spend a decent amount of time fishing size 24 midges with a 15 foot leader. That is something the 5wt will do. If I was focusing of heavier streamers I would take the 6wt. The problem is if I am fishing midges I never take the 6wt. If I plan on chucking heavy streamers I never take the 5wt. It‘s not that they can’t do it... it’s just that there is a superior tool for the job. I’m not sure that this answer will satisfy you but it is probably the best answer I can give. The short answer is I don’t know... never tried.Hi Matt,
To S&S and many others on the forum I am a lost cause as I am after the one rod does it all graal (I already havea quiver of specialised rods though ). The closest thing I have found to that ideal to date is Redington NTi 906, but I feel Anomaly Z could be the long awaited heir to that magical rod.
If I m looking at a rod that handles a size 28 midge at the end of a 25ft leader like a 4wt but can also hammer a heavy streamer like a 6wt, is it Anomaly Z 905 or 906 that I am looking for or something else?
