It's our continuing advances in the design and construction of fly rods that have enabled us to create the X-Flite. This is a rod even lighter, smoother and more powerful than its renowned predecessor, the Greyflex M2. The high modulus construction allows us to create the rod in four pieces for vastly improved storage and transportation.
The action is unimpaired, testament to the wizardry of our technology. The fittings are typically Greys: high standard, beautifully presented, well thought out featuring constant attention to detail.The X-Flite is a better rod all round but still at a price you can afford. This is another beauty of technology: you get more rod for your money. For the angler, a win-win situation. Our confidence in the X-Flite is such that we give you a complete range from its inception. We have a seven foot, three weight rod running through the eight and nine foot river rods to the nine foot six and ten foot stillwater rods.
Our four X-Flite double handers have excelled in extensive tests. The fast recovery, high modulus construction used throughout the range has huge impact at these extended lengths. Even the sixteen foot, eleven-weight feels light, sensitive and well balanced whilst possessing the steel for the biggest salmon challenges.
- High modulus construction enhances user-friendly characteristics
- Top grade cork handles. Anodised metal reel fitting mounted on hardwood spacers
- Four-section design for ease of transport
- Supplied in Greys triangular tube for extreme durability
"The X-Flite is a very user friendly middle to tip action rod"
Trout Fisherman Magazine, Feb 2009, Best in Test - Bank Rods £100-£200
"Great rod which can also handle the aiflo extreme lines many of us comp anglers use and at the price is great value .Many anglers have gone to stiffer rods on the comp circuit... but as your timing gets better you can get a lot more out of these type of rods and you do not get so tired using them on a long day when pulling lures on sinking lines"
Steve Ellerbeck, competition angler
"An excellent fly rod! I can see why it got the Best in Test award in Trout Fisherman magazine."
Mr Alan Taylor, Rochdale
