Light in hand, Wave rods easily generate high line speeds and controlled tight loops to cut through wind and deliver flies on target. With pulling power to spare, Wave rods are the perfect tool for pursuing powerful fish species in all fresh and saltwater environments.
Equally at home slam fishing the flats, casting fast sinking lines for stripers, or chasing carp and bass at the local park, Wave rods deliver high performance across a wide variety of fishing situations. Scott has developed breakthrough design and materials technologies in recent years. Wave rods, and the anglers who fish them, are the direct beneficiaries. Many of our most innovative technologies are incorporated into the design and construction of Wave rods, and like every Scott fly rod, they are lovingly handcrafted in our shop in Montrose, Colorado.
Appointed with top grade components like SiC stripping guides, custom machined aluminum and graphite reel seats, and super grade cork, Wave rods are finished with as much thought as the technology loaded blank designs. Simply put, Wave rods are the greatest performance value Scott has ever created.

Scott introduced the world to ultra-light weight unidirectional carbon fiber reinforcements over 15 years ago. Our Advanced Reinforced Carbon (ARC) adds directional stability and hoop strength while minimizing additional weight.
Our new generation ARC is over 35% lighter and sets a new first in ultra-light multi-ply blank construction.
The result is even more torsional stability with substantially lighter weight. This helps your rod track better for greater loop control and pin point accuracy.
Enhanced feel, incredible stability and unequalled performance. X-Core combines the industry’s leading composite technologies with cutting edge design.
Diameter is proportional to stiffness and strength, and X-Core, or Expanded Core, technology delivers blanks that transmit feel and maintain stability better than any other design approach.
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.
This design helps the rod come alive in your hands. It’s a superior approach to the slow taper, thick walled designs that deliver stiffness at the expense of feel.
Fine-tuned flex and recovery.
Scott pioneered the use of multi modulus fiber lay ups in blank design.
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
The result is a rod that loads and unloads more smoothly.
Advanced Reinforced Carbon reduces torque and increases strength.
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.
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.
Walk down a rod rack at your local fly shop and you'll notice something different about Scott rods. Like everything we do, the Scott Natural Finish is all about making your rod lighter, more durable, and better performing.
Most other rods on the shelf are run through a belt sander, tearing away the outside power fibers of the blank and introducing variance. Inadvertent flatspotting during the sanding process will weaken a blank, and blanks are designed with a margin of error to accommodate for oversanding. After the blank is sanded, a glossy paint is applied to add shelf appeal.
Natural finish blanks aren't subjected to the rip through the sanding belt, nor are they covered with heavy paint to add pop in your fly shop. We're firm believers in the natural beauty of graphite. A natural finish blank is built to exacting tolerances. Scott's advanced resin systems permeate the blank, leaving a durable finish that will stand up to years of abuse.
