IM6 Graphite

This technical tailwater rod, is a dry fly specialist with a super smooth taper and wonderfully sensitive tip. If you want to lay out a precise line to a tricky fish, then this rod will provide you the smooth casting and delicate presentation you need to get your fly in the zone.

The action is quick & precise with this series. It has the backbone to play a good fish while protecting a light tippet, never losing its smoothness. Pure delight for anyone who enjoys casting and chasing large, spooky fish with a single dry.

Super fun rods that are standard in 4pc, and you also have an option for a 9'0" 6pc to easily slip down the side of a rucksack.


A true to weight 4wt (114grain-135grain line), Beautiful with a triangle taper for light streamer work, or a DT line for dry flies, or WF line for light nymph rigs.


The new Steffen graphite, has taken the classic Steffen tapers and adapted them to modern IM6 graphite cloth and resin. This results in a super smooth progressive designs with lighter swing weight, more responsive feel, with a faster recovery.


The heart of the graphite series is the classic Steffen taper. It is such a joy to cast. Now, paired with the new material, it feels modern, almost timeless, classically elegant yet fresh and exciting. These new rods, and blanks set a new benchmark in the evolution of Steffen Brothers products.
