9’ in length and available in eight line sizes, 5wt through 12wt Archipelago Rods feature a slim profile designed to slice through extreme coastal winds, and high-modulus blank construction that blends delicacy with power.
The result is a rod capable of reaching out to deliver tarpon flies delicately to laid up fish, with the backbone to break the spirit of the largest saltwater bruisers quickly and under demanding conditions.
The Saltwater Archipelago Series are four-piece rods featuring REC Recoil Snake guides, light weight Titanium Stripper Guides with SIC inserts, and a light weight natural finish with UV Coating, anodized aluminum reel seat with laser engraved CLUTCH logo, an attractive “tuxedo black” rod tube.

I've thrown both the 8wt and 9wt and found them to be superb for both power and touch. I've owned and fished many of the top of the line rods and found that the ARC out performs pretty much all of them. Keep up the great work. Looking forward to fishing the Fluent this summer in Montana.
The Archipelago series rod takes your fishing to the next level. Power to pick up more line than thought possible and punch through the winds we often suffer through. The rod has the backbone to beat the most stubborn fish and the feel to set the line where you want it to go.
This rod is an absolute cannon, casting to big Australian pelagics all day with any effort what so ever. Even better is the service I have recieved From Lee and the Clutch family. You guys need more stars....
