Castability with Great Line Control Spectre RMX Fly Rods
Spectre® RMX fly rods incorporates the very latest American Tackle Microwave stripper guides for the ultimate line control performance.
Snowbee was the first UK company to incorporate American Tackle’s Microwave Guide system into a range of spinning rods back in 2014. The resulting line control was nothing short of spectacular… and got us thinking whether the same technology could be applied to fly rods. Having worked closely with American Tackle since those early days, the new Microwave Fly Rod Guides were finally launched in 2019.
Features and Specification of Spectre RMX Fly Rods
- 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.
- Incorporates American Tackle Microwave Stripping Guides.
- 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.
Spectre® RMX Fly Rod 8’6″ #5wt
The perfect small river or brook rod, but equally suitable for small stillwaters, where a slightly softer action allows a more delicate presentation, when seeking ‘spooky’ fish.
Spectre® RMX Fly Rods 9′ #5wt & 9′ #6wt
Ideal for rivers and small stillwaters where a slightly faster action and additional power is required for longer distance casting.
Spectre® RMX Fly Rods 9’6″ #7wt & 10′ #7wt
The ever popular rod of choice for large rivers, stillwaters and reservoirs. Both models have a massive reserve of power, allowing those extra few yards to reach the fish previously just out of range.
Spectre® RMX Fly Rods 10′ #5wt & 10′ #6wt
Two ‘Loch Style’ rods, the smaller rods being ideal for lighter line fishing, particularly dry-fly and top of the water styles, while the #6 model is designed for more general loch style fishing for Brown Trout and Rainbow, where a more powerful rod is required.
Spectre® Saltwater/Predator RMX Fly Rod 9′ #8wt
With the ever increasing popularity of Saltwater, carp and pike fly fishing we have included a Saltwater Predator model to the Spectre range. This is not just the standard rod with a different logo! Purpose-designed for the requirements of these fly fishing disciplines, the blanks have steeper tapers and thicker wall profiles to handle the larger, more powerful fish likely to be encountered. Brushed aluminum finish reel seat and high chrome guides, make the Spectre SP stand out from crowd!
Spectre RMX Construction
ensuring this precise blank design is not altered in any way, we use an “un-ground,” natural finish. Precise engineering of the carbon matte 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.
The modern action and performance are 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 fishing blanks, clear matt varnish, and transparent thread coatings that let our careful workmanship shine through.
Matte Finish Less Glare on the Water
The clear matte varnish allows the beauty of the carbon fiber pattern to show through, while the matte finish eliminates “rod flash” in bright conditions. Matching self-color whippings and the latest “soft-touch” rubber coated reel seats complete the understated look, but these new-look 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 worrying about “shelf appeal.”
Stainless Steel Guides for a More accurate Cast
Built with stainless steel guides with a super-hard titanium coating which provides less line friction through the rings. In this 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 hayfork tip rings, to maximize line speed.
The Spectre® rods also feature angler-friendly touches like alignment dots to quickly line-up your fly rod sections and self-indexing reel seats, with small diamante “marker” to quickly get your reel on the rod, allowing you to concentrate on the fishing.
