Built using Diamondback’s unique Diverse Modulus Design(DMD), the CLOUT is designed specifically for accurate casts, subtle mends, and that perfect blend of power and finesse.

Available in LINK grip or standard grip.

  • Diverse Modulus Design (DMD)
  • Core Reinforcement Construction (CRC)

  • Multi modulus carbon blank
  • Low diameter stainless snake guides
  • Diamond shaped alignment marks
  • Titanium stripper with Nano Light inserts
  • Diamond cut aluminum reel seat

The LINK GRIP negates the great amount of pressure most anglers apply to their rod handles because the fingers settle between the carefully shaped cork rings. Hand and wrist fatigue are dramatically reduced even during extensive casting and fish fighting activity.

    Beautiful rod. Excellent workmanship. Not had a chance to use being waiting for line and reel to be delivered.

    Not too shabby.

    I would've give it a 5 stars. I got the wrong rod sent to me. Joe was willing to work with me on resolving the mishap. I own three other rods from daimondback. Great rods. 👍

    Clout 8.6' Med Fast Link Grip

    Just received "my precious". A really beautiful rod with a unique design and high end finishing. Surprisingly light (+/- 80grs) but looks very accurate and precise when in hand for dry flies launching, great "look and feel" :) I attached it an old Mitchell 710 semi automatic reel i am used to. The only weird thing to me is the sticker "Made in China" on the cork protection film :(

    Diamond Back Clout 9' #6 (med fast) with link grip

    At first It felt a little weird in the hand, no doubt a new experience. I fished the rod exclusively for several days trying different positions on the grip for casting and drifts. Started out dry fly fishing and caught a few nice trout with an exceptional feel. The rod is extremely light and well balanced with a reel on it which I expected for the original price point. I switched to a prince nymph and that's when I discovered the secret of the rod. The ability to have a finger on the blank is incredible for feeling light strikes. After a while I was relaxed and effortlessly shooting longer casts, finding the sweet spot on the link grip by holding the cork in the palm of my hand and like you would a wand. At the end of the trip, I took the reel off the Clout and put the reel back on one of my older good rods just to see the difference and the Clout was far superior in every single way especially the grip. If you are on the fence about this one and Its because of the grip like I was at first, don't hesitate because once you fish it for a few days It's hard to go back. An amazing experience when you learn not to fight the link grip from years of conventional grip use and let the link do the work for you. Fits my hand perfectly and as a matter of fact I'm already planning my next fly-fishing adventure because of my new favorite rod.

    Great rod

    Link grip feels great while casting but cork a little weak
