New Fly Rods, Fly Rod Building Kits and Blanks In Graphene

We're delighted to announce the release of the first of our new Graphene series Fly rod building kits and fly rod blanks!

Super stealthy in a non-reflective satin SnakeBelly™ finish, the new G Series utilises industry leading Graphene nano resins to help create a lighter, stronger more responsive fly rod.

Featuring our SnakeBelly finish and a new low sheen, chip resistant satin exterior these are extremely stealthy & tough fly rods. Finished in smoke grey translucent wraps with contrasting red trims they look terrific.

Graphene

The use of Graphene nano resin affords clear performance advantages. 5% Lighter, tougher and more responsive.

    Stealthy and chip resistant

    Our SnakeBelly™ Satin finish is scratch and chip resistant making for an extremely tough and durable fly rod that is less prone to stress fractures caused by collisions with weighted flies.
