Snowbee 4 Piece Spectre Fly Rod
The perfect small river or brook rod, but equally suitable for small stillwater rod, where a slightly softer action allows more delicate presentation, when seeking 'spooky' fish. Spectre® Fly Rods come in a self-colour cotton drill rod bag, with a Cordura covered rod tube, in an eye-catching Black & Orange dog tooth pattern, to be instantly recognisable, as a Snowbee Spectre!
For many years Snowbee have used ' multi-modulus' carbon technology in the design of our blanks. By varying the tensile modulus of the carbon fibre lay-up along the length of the blank, allows us to precisely design and control the stiffness and flex in various sections, as well as the recovery speed of the tip.
The new Spectre range takes this on to a whole new level.
- The fine profile blanks use predominantly 40 ton carbon fibre, blended with a small amount of 36 ton, to deliver the precise, crisp, 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, we use an '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 rod lighter, more durable and provides enhanced performance.
- The modern action and performance is matched by the contemporary finish. Compare a Spectre rod next to the other brands and you'll notice we have nothing to hide! We don't cover up any blank blemishes with coats of paint and we don't use opaque epoxy to mask sloppy guide whippings! We use natural finish blanks, clear matt varnish and transparent thread coatings, that let our careful workmanship shine through.
- The Spectre rods also feature angler-friendly touches like alignment dots to quickly line-up your fly rod sections ans self indexing reel seats, with small diamante 'marker' to quickly get your reel on the rod, allowing you to concentrate on the fishing.
