Snowbee Spectre Fly Rods use the very latest carbon - fibre technology to create a range of rods, whose performance is un-matched at this price.
For many years, Snowbee have used ‘multimodulus’ carbon technology in the design of their blanks. By varying the tensile modulus of the carbon fibre lay-up, along the length of the blank, allows Snowbee to precisely design and control the stiffness and flex in the Spectre Fly Rod sections, as well as the recovery speed of the tip.
The new Snowbee Spectre Fly Rod range takes this on to a whole new level. The fine Profile banks use predominantly 40 ton carbon fibre, blended with a small amount of 36 tons, to deliver the precise, crisp, and middle to- tip action we required. The result is a fly rod that loads and un-loads more precisely and smoothly, to provide that 'light in the hand', balanced feel, that all fly rod designers strive for.
To ensure this precise blank design is not altered in any way, Snowbee use a ‘un-ground’, natural finish. Precise engineering of the carbon matt lay-up, produces a double-helical hoop pattern in the carbon fibre, and leaving this intact, adds strength to the blank, whilst making the Spectre fly rod lighter, more durable and provides enhanced performance.
The modern action and performance is matched by the contemporary finish. Compare a Spectre fly rod next to other brands and you’ll notice Snowbee have nothing to hide! Snowbee don’t cover up any blank blemishes with coats of paint and they don’t use opaque epoxy to mask sloppy guide whippings! Snowbee uses natural finish blanks, clear matt varnish and transparent thread coatings, that let their careful workmanship shine through.
The clear matt varnish allows the beauty of the carbon fibre pattern to show through, while the matte finish eliminates ‘rod flash’ in bright conditions. Matching self-colour whippings and the latest 'soft-touch' rubber coated reel seats complete the understated look, but these new-look Spectre fly rods are bound to turn heads! Make no mistake, the Spectre fly rods are designed to catch fish, not fishermen… although their entire look is bound to appeal to the serious Fly fisher, looking for every advantage over his or her quarry, without having to spend a fortune or worry about ‘shelf appeal’.
The Snowbee Spectre Fly Rods are built with stainless steel guides, with a super-hard titanium coating, provides less line friction through the rod rings. The latest pattern, oversized stripper guides have a new leg design, which provides better support and helps channel the fly line more smoothly through the ring. The high grade zirconium ring liners reduce friction to the minimum, while the snake guides are high-lift, American pattern, with oversize hay-fork tip rings, to maximise line speed.
The Spectre fly rod also feature angler-friendly touches like alignment dots to quickly line-up your fly rod sections and self-indexing reel seats, with a small diamante ‘marker’ to quickly get your reel on the rod, allowing you to concentrate on your fishing.
