Description

The amazing Spectre® Fly Rod range, launched in 2017 and was then upgraded in 2019, incorporating the very latest American Tackle Microwave Stripper Guides for the ultimate line control performance! 
Snowbee were the first UK Company to incorporate American Tackle’s sensational MW18 Microwave™ guide system designed for fly rods. The principle behind the Microwave™ guide system, being to reduce as much drag as possible from the rod and rings by aligning the line perfectly from the first stripper ring though all the rest. When a line shoots, it ideally has so little drag that it exits the tip ring at approximately 50-60 mph for maximum distance and the Microwave™ system provides this. Upon testing it was immediately evident how much straighter the final presentation was, allowing therefore not only increased distance, but also enhancing line control and accuracy at the same time.

Once again, Snowbee were the first company to embrace this new technology and the sensational new Spectre® RMX fly rod prototypes were shown at EFTTEX in Amsterdam and ICAST in Orlando in 2018
The principle behind the Microwave guide system is really very simple. When a fly line shoots, it is leaving the rod tip at approximately 50-60 mph. In the ideal world there would be nothing to restrict this movement, allowing maximum line speed and distance. In reality, the friction through the rings, coupled with the ‘line-slap’ as coils snake up off the ground or a stripping basket, reduce this line speed considerably, as using conventional stripper guides, the line coils are merely decreased, as they travel up through the rings. What the Microwave stripper guide does, is immediately ‘tame’ these coils, allowing the fly line to travel the rest of the way up through the guide train, in an almost straight line, hence reducing point contact with the rings, and therefore friction, to allow increased line speed. What was also immediately apparent to us when testing the first prototypes, was just how much straighter the final presentation was, allowing not only increased distance, but also better line control and accuracy.
BENEFITS 
• Total line control • Increased rod performance 
• Increased casting distance • Increased casting accuracy 
The Spectre RMX rods also feature ‘angler friendly’ touches like 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, allowing you to concentrate on the fishing. The Spectre® RMX rods all use the very latest carbon fibre technology providing an unparalleled performance at this price. For many years Snowbee have used ‘multi-modulus’ carbon technology varying the tensile modulus of the carbon fibre, allowing us to precisely design and control the stiffness and flex in each section, as well as the important recovery speed of the tip. Using predominantly 40 ton carbon fibre with a small amount of 36 ton, we have delivered the precise and crisp, middle-to-tip action we required. The blanks are ‘un-ground’ with a natural finish, leaving the original matt lay-up of the double helical hoop pattern intact, adding strength to the blank, making it far more durable, whilst still providing the desired enhanced performance. The matt finish helps eliminate ‘rod flash’, whilst the self-colour whippings and latest superlight matt black aluminium reel seats complete a totally contemporary finish and ‘understated’ look.

10012 Spectre RMX Fly Rod 8’ 6″ #5 
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.

10011 Spectre RMX Fly Rod 9’ #5 
10013 Spectre RMX Fly Rod 9′ #6 
Ideal for rivers and small stillwaters, where a slightly faster action and additional power is required for longer distance casting.

10014 Spectre RMX Fly Rod 9′ 6″ #7 
10016 Spectre RMX Fly Rod 10′ #7 
The ever popular rods of choice for larger rivers, stillwaters and reservoirs. Both models have massive reserves of power, allowing those extra few yards to reach the fish previously just out of range.

10018 Spectre RMX Fly Rod 10′ #5 – Half Wells 
10015 Spectre RMX Fly Rod 10′ #6 – Full Wells 
Two ‘Loch Style’ rods, the smaller rod 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 rainbows, where a more powerful rod is required.

10019 Spectre Saltwater/Predator RMX Fly Rod 9’ #8 
With the ever increasing popularity of Saltwater Bonefish, Carp & Pike fly fishing, the “Saltwater Predator” model is top of the Spectre range. The blanks have steeper tapers & thicker wall profiles, to handle the larger, more powerful fish, likely to be encountered. Brushed aluminium finish reel seat & high chrome guides, also make the Spectre SP stand out with respect to its peers!
