HT7 to NZ

This is another of Stuntman Ronan’s lineups. Where the 7 definitely outperforms the 6 is for deadly streamer bashing. But something I’ve been thinking about for a while, and I know it’s what Ronan is thinking about too, is its use for backcountry NZ trout. There is certainly a “gear change” between these two rods and in some backcountry situations I think the 7 would be a better tool for the job.

As you can see, the Stuntman favours snake rings and a spare tip. This is for when he is being lowered over the side of a cliff attached to a tow rope, leaping over to trees to slide down like a fireman or climbing high vantage points and blowing himself up in the process. You too can order such a rod if you are a daredevil fly fisherman or just nuts.

As always drop me an email on for any questions you may have!

Cheers, Paul

Mystery River X in New Zealand… Stuntman Ronan writes, “Guiding Bill for a couple of days. He brought his HT6 and I used mine as the streamer rod.. The fish had no chance!”

Wonderful photos and fish 🙂 Both of these things come highly recommended; Stuntman Ronan and Hot Torpedos!

If you have photos of your HT in action then please send them in. It’s always fun to see what they are up to! Hope that you have a fantastic season Bill 🙂

Cheers, Paul
