Description

Over the years, fly rod technology has taken occasional quantum leaps forward. First the move from split cane to fibreglass; then the next move to carbon fibre, and now, the latest development – Graphene! This amazing new technology really is a ‘game changer’ and with the Prestige G-XS Graphene range, propels Snowbee to the top of the leader board, in terms of performance and innovation. 
Graphene was first discovered and isolated in 2010, by two researchers in the Physics Department of Manchester University, who went on to be awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics, for their discovery. Graphene really is a game-changer. In its raw form it consists of a two-dimensional, carbon sheet just one atom thick, yet 200 times stronger than steel! It is the lightest material on earth and at the molecular level, Graphene is one million times smaller than the diameter of a human hair!
Apart from its strength, another important feature of Graphene is its flexibility. In fly rod production, Graphene powder is added to the epoxy resins to enhance inherent properties such as tensile strength and flexibility.
A few years ago the latest technology was Nano Carbon rods. The principle was that the smaller, ’round profile’ nano
molecules added to the epoxy resin, were able to penetrate every void within the carbon fibre mat, far better than long-chain epoxy resin molecules. This innovation to reinforce resins, created a prepreg material, with a flexural strength and modulus, far higher than that of conventional resin. This resulted in fly rod blanks that were lighter, crisper and more precise in action than anything previously achievable and a blank so close to ‘unbreakable’ in normal use as it is possible to achieve.
This principle has been taken one stage further, with the new Graphene resin technology, as Graphene atoms are 300 times smaller than the smallest nanoparticle, resulting in an even denser carbon mat, with virtually no air pockets, enhanced by the use of autoclave ovens, which ‘bake’ the blanks under high pressure, to further expel any air pockets.

Ultra-lightweight River and Brook series: 7′ 6″ #1 and 7’#2 
When you want to ‘fish light’ it doesn’t get much lighter than this! Our two new Ultralight models are fitted with the European style tapered handle, with burl wood collar, allowing sensitive control, with one finger running up onto the blank, for the ultimate in bite detection and precision casting.

Lightweight River Dry Fly & Nymph series: 9′ 6″ #3, 10′ #2, 10′ #3 and 11′ #3
Our river dry fly and nymph rods are aimed squarely at the ‘light line’ specialist who has come to appreciate the need for sensitive control, and extreme accuracy with a feel to match, when ‘fishing light’. Originally developed in Eastern Europe, the longer, lighter styles of nymph fishing and dry fly rods have become increasingly popular for river fishing and the new Graphene material further enhances this. 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. These lighter options are all fitted with the European style tapered cork handle and burl wood collars.

River & small Stillwater series: 8′ #4, 9′ #4, 9′ #5, 10′ #4 and 10′ #5 
Our river and stillwater series covers a wealth of fishing opportunities….finesse, accuracy and balance are all that’s asked of a good rod and these offer all of that and more. The range caters for every application and the blanks are purpose made for power, but with a tip flex in play, sufficient to soak up all charges so that fish caught, especially on barbless, are far less likely to come off.

Stillwater, Reservoir & large river series: 9′ #6, 9′ 6″ #7, 10′ #6 and 10′ #7 
The most powerful blanks in the new Prestige range. Unleash the hidden energy in these rods with a smoothness you will not believe. The new Graphene construction provides a smoothness unsurpassed by any other material. You will quickly come to appreciate the unrivalled power and control, only available with this remarkable new Graphene technology. All designed with progressive tip action and sufficient flex to generate maximum line speed and distance, as well as holding onto hooked fish, with a vastly reduced risk of losing them in play.
