The Prestige G-XS fly rod is constructed utilizing a game changing space-age material combined with multi-modulus carbon fiber, and is by far the best performance fly rod Snowbee has ever developed. At the molecular level, this advanced material is the thinnest, lightest and strongest material ever known. It is 200 times stronger than steel, and one million times thinner than the diameter of a human hair.
By applying these hugely critical components in the design and build, the Prestige G-XS fly rods have now become the lightest, most powerful and flexible rods that we’ve ever produced. Despite its fast action the rod is not stiff and is capable of producing an incredibly smooth and powerful cast with the sensitivity of the rod tip.
Unique to the Prestige G-XS, this essential flex in the tip design helps to keep fish set, even when only lightly hooked. That makes the casting experience unmatched, and we’ve utilized this same philosophy to develop the ultralight 1 and 2 weight models which take full advantage of this strength and flexibility, offering silky smooth action with generous amounts of power.

These rods lend themselves to effortless and untiring Czech and French nymphing techniques and the 9'6" #3 weight model is the ideal rod for dry fly or dual purpose.

*Reel not included.
Took a Prestige 7'6" one weight for a day on the upper Taylor River above the reservoir in Colorado. Fishing a size 14 black and tan chubby on a 9' leader, using a Snowbee Classic 3/4 reel and a Thistledown 2/5 weight line. I was able to place the fly within a couple of inches of the consistently for non stop action of 12 to 14 inch brown trout. I was one of the funnest days I have had in a while on a small stream. I highly recommend this for your next fishing adventure.
Friends urged me to buy a more well known brand of graphite rod in the 9’ 6# range, but after reading carefully about the Prestige g-xs I decided to make the purchase.It is the only 9’ rod I own other than a 9’9# for salmon. The difference in this 9’ versus the 8’3” 5# I own is greater control and placement of the fly. I am impressed enough to take it to Wyoming in two weeks to fish in Yellowstone Park.
