The Spectre® fly rods use the very latest carbon fiber technology to create a range of rods whose performance is un-matched 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 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, 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 is 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.

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.” 

Built with stainless steel guides with a super-hard titanium coating which provides less line friction through the rings. In this latest pattern, oversize 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. 

Comes complete with a self-color cotton drill rod bag, with a Cordura covered rod tube in a black and orange dog-tooth pattern.

Spectre Saltwater / Predator Fly Rod

With the ever increasing popularity of saltwater, carp, and pike fly fishing, for 2018 we have added a new 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 taper and thicker wall profiles to handle the larger, more powerful fish likely to be encountered. Brushed aluminium-finish reel seat and high chrome guides, make the Spectre SP stand out from the crowd!
