Snowbee Prestige G-XS Double-Handed Graphene Fly Rods - Following the outstanding success of the Snowbee Prestige G-XS single handed fly rods, Snowbee extended this remarkable pedigree & phenomenally advanced Graphene technology to a new range of Snowbee Prestige G-XS Double-Handed Graphene Fly Rods & Saltwater fly rods.
Snowbee Prestige G-XS Double-Handed Graphene Fly Rods combine Nano Carbon technology, with the incredible properties of Graphene which has proved sensational. Snowbee have added satin finished aluminium reel seats, maintaining remarkable lightness to the ultra-modern designs, then anodised them for corrosion resistance. The modern design of cork handles are fashioned from the very finest quality Super-grade North American cork. Butt extensions & lower handles are tipped with a rubber composite cork, for additional wear & protection. The Salmon Rods are finished in a dark lustrous Teal/Blue, with a combined self-colour & silver whip finish. There are two large lined Stripper rings and high-lift snake rings throughout with each section spot marked for a perfect line up. The 13ft & 14ft G-XS Double-Handed Graphene Fly Rods also have whip markings to 110cm, to help quickly assess the weight & size of bigger fish without needing to remove from the water.

Snowbee Prestige G-XS Double-Handed Graphene Fly Rods - Further Information
Over the years, fly rod technology has taken occasional quantum leaps forward. First the move from split cane to fibreglass; then the next move to carbon fibre, and now, the latest development –Graphene! This amazing new technology really is a ‘game changer’ and propels Snowbee to the top of the leader board, in terms of performance and innovation.
Graphene was first discovered and isolated in 2010, by two researchers in the Physics Department of Manchester University, who went on to be awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics, for their discovery. Graphene really is a game-changer. In its raw form it consists of a two-dimensional, carbon sheet just one atom thick, yet 200 times stronger than steel! It is the lightest material on earth and at the molecular level, Graphene is one million times smaller than the diameter of a human hair!
Apart from its strength, another important feature of Graphene is its flexibility. In fly rod production, Graphene powder is added to the epoxy resins to enhance inherent properties such as tensile strength and flexibility.
A few years ago, the latest technology was Nano Carbon rods. The principle was that the smaller, 'round profile' Nano molecules added to the epoxy resin, were able to penetrate every void within the carbon fibre mat, far better than long-chain epoxy resin molecules. This innovation to reinforce resins, created a pre-preg material, with a flexural strength and modulus, far higher than that of conventional resin. This resulted in fly rod blanks that were lighter, crisper and more precise in action than anything previously achievable and a blank so close to 'unbreakable' in normal use as it is possible to achieve.
This principle has been taken one stage further, with the new Graphene resin technology, as Graphene atoms are 300 times smaller than the smallest nanoparticle, resulting in an even denser carbon mat, with virtually no air pockets, enhanced using autoclave ovens, which ‘bake’ the blanks under high pressure, to further expel any air pockets.
