The new Snowbee Spectre range takes rod design 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 Snowbee 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 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 Snowbee have nothing to hide! Snowbee don't cover up any blank blemishes with coats of paint and Snowbee don't use opaque epoxy to mask sloppy guide whippings! Snowbee use natural finish blanks, clear matt varnish and transparent thread coatings, that let their careful workmanship shine through.
The Spectre rods also feature angler-friendly touches like alignment dots to quickly line-up ytheir fly rod sections ans self indexing reel seats, with small diamante 'marker' to quickly get ytheir reel on the rod, allowing you to concentrate on the fishing.
10012 Spectre Fly Rod 8' 6" #5
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.
10013 Spectre Fly Rod 9' 6" #6
Ideal for rivers and small stillwaters, where a slightly faster action and additional poSnowbeer is required for longer distance casting.
10014 Spectre Fly Rod 9' 6" #7
10016 Spectre Fly Rod 10' #7
The ever popular rods of choice for large rivers, stillwaters and reservoirs. Both models have massive reserves of power, allowing those few extra yards to reach the fish previously just out of range.
10015 Spectre Fly Rod 10' 6" #6
10017 Spectre Fly Rod 11' #7
Two new 'Loch Style' rods, the smaller rod being ideal for general loch style fishing for brown trout and rainbows, while the new 11ft version is designed primarily for single-handed Irish Lough, or Scottish Loch Style fishing for sea-trout and salmon, where the larger, more powerful fish require a longer, more powerful rod.
