ELEVATION Fly Fishing Rod Guideline, a news stunning series of 2020; the very latest in material and pattern technology, as well as featuring several more environmentally friendly components.
The new rod blank eliminates any unnecessary material in each section; It also gives us the possibility to monitor power in every part of the blank much more accurately than before.
The Elevation fly fishing rods are extremely light and responsive (9’ #5 is 72g / 2,53oz), and yet the strongest standard rods we have created.
Furthermore, the rods have a sensitive and protective tip that is very stable and crisp, with a smooth progressive curve further down the blank with a powerful butt section.
Finally, the rod is easy to cast and have great line feel and you will easily connect to the rod to all types of casts.
ECO – FRIENDLY
- the blanks: matte color with no added coloration which gives them a dark graphite grey appearance; finally, the blanks have a soft spiral pattern and thin coating.
- the cork: new and improved full wells grips of 3A cork without rubber cork reinforcements. This reduces the levels of epoxy-resins needed in the grips.
- the reel seat: clear anodized which is the least toxic process possible when using aluminium reel seats; no chrome (lead) or paint in the anodizing bath.
- the glue: for the coatings, guides and cork, we use a bio-based low-toxic epoxy, tested and approved.
- the rod tube and rod bag: they are made of recycled REPREVE™ polyester. The rod tube is made of recycling Polypropylene and it is lighter and have 20% lower diameters than normal ones.
- Elevation 9′ # 4 / 5 / 6: the #4 and #5 are typical all-round trout rods for dries, nymphs and light streamers; the #6 is perfect for bigger flies, bigger fish and windy conditions.
- Elevation 9′ # 7 / 8 / 9: typical rods for the heavier fishing; for example migratory trout, pike, salmon, sea trout and bonefish. Unique balance and weight for rods in this category.
- Elevation 9’9″ # 6 / 7 / 8: made for both lake and river fishing after trout, sea trout and salmon. The new length of 9’9ft is the ultimate compromise between 9’6 and 10ft. It gives you the power of the 9’6ft and the reach/distance of the 10ft.
