Snowbee Spectre® Fly Rods

Snowbee

Delivery 5-7 working days

The Spectre® fly rods use the very latest carbon fiber technology to create a range of rods whose performance is unmatched at this price.

For many years Snowbee has used “multi-modulus” carbon technology in the design of our blanks. By varying the tensile modulus of the carbon fiber lay-up along the length of the blank, this allows us to precisely design and control the stiffness and flex in various sections, as well as the recovery speed of the tip.

The Spectre® range takes this on to a whole new level. The fine profile blanks use predominately 46-ton carbon fiber, blended with a small amount of 40 ton, to deliver the precise, crisp, middle-to-tip action we required. The result is a fly rod that loads and unloads more precisely and smoothly, to provide that “light in the hand” balanced feel, that all fly rod designers strive for.

 

Features:

  • 4-Piece Rod
  • The fine profile blanks use predominately 40-ton carbon fiber, blended with a small amount of 36-ton to deliver a crisp middle-to-tip action.
  • Precise engineering of the carbon matt lay-up produces a double-helical hoop pattern in the carbon fiber, and leaving this intact adds strength to the blank, while making the rod lighter, more durable, and provides enhanced performance.
  • Natural finish blanks, clear matte varnish, and transparent thread coatings let our careful workmanship shine through.
  • Angler-friendly touches including 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.
  • Comes complete with a self-color cotton drill rod bag and Cordura covered rod tube in a black and orange dog-tooth pattern.

I took this fishing rod (9' #10)for a two week trip to the Kola Peninsula in the hunt for salmon. She gave me the fight of my life! Rod minimizes the attempts of the salmon to escape, but I still lost her. Great fishing rod!!!

Awesome choice for bonefish

I used this reel for bonefish and it worked great. It is super light and easy to use on the flats.

Love it!

This is an absolutely awesome fly reel! It's build like a tank and will last several lifetimes. It looks stunning on bamboo rods, but while a bit heavier than the modern aluminum counterparts, it balances nicely during casting. The line included with the reel is a high quality Scientific Anglers Mastery line in the weight of your choice. If you've got a few extra bucks to invest in a fine reel, this is the one!

Pretty much bullet proof

I have owned my 811 for about 4 years now and have put it through the mill. I am not the most graceful of people, I have dropped it on several occasions, smacked it up against rocks, even dropped my rod in the river as it rolled down the current and ended on the bottom of a deep pool. We fished it out and it wasn't even dented! Love this reel!

Love mine! I fish a 9’ 4wt Renegade for small bass and bluegill with a 175 Commando. Handles larger bass and trout well. But even a small bluegill is fun. Soft hackles to game changer streamers cast very well with a progressive taper. My favorite rod in the TX hill country. Jerry did a great job designing the rods. Also great customer service. Replaced a broken tip with one call. I use 5’ tips in tight quarters.

I also fish the 11’6” 8wt Renegade

Tight Lines, Mike
