Similarly, there is also a considerable amount of skill needed in fly rod design because it follows the same principle as it's intended application. To identify materials, actions, and processes that will make the act of fly casting fly line as efficient as possible. Greys have mastered this method and consistently push the boundaries of rod building to produce fly rods that surpass their predecessors - and contemporaries!
This is abundantly evident in the Greys GR20 Fly Rod series. Whether you are new to the sport of fly fishing, or a seasoned expert, technique undoubtedly plays a big part.The more efficient you are at presenting your fly to a fish, with high accuracy and minimal splashing, the more successful you will be. But, sometimes there is a need for compensation, so a rod that is forgiving and can adapt to the style of casting is a huge bonus. This is what the GR20 was made for. It is smooth and forgiving and features a high modulus carbon blank that has much higher than average compression strength. It is not stiff but highly responsive and perfect for fly fishermen trying to hone their technique. Regarding specification, the GR20 features line guides on the bottom section which are hard-lined, and intermediate, chrome, snake guides along the blank. Chrome is much more efficient at resisting water corrosion. Snake guides also stop the line from hitting the rod blank when generating high line speed, reducing friction and subsequently improving distance. The reel seat is made from hard-anodised aluminium which offers higher protection from corrosion than metal or brass reel fittings. The reel seat also features twin locking nuts to ensure due-diligence, preventing reel'slippage' and the potential nightmare scenario of coming off and landing in the water during casting.
The rod blank is finished in black gloss and is fitted with a hard wearing, AAA natural cork handle. AAA cork gives you a confident grip but promotes sensitivity which is essential when you are trying to control rod tip speed. AAA also helps you detect tugs, and pulls on the fly line when slow retrieving or figure of eight looping. The GR20 range goes from an 8ft #4 weight 4 piece, which features a half wells handle, to a 10ft #7 weight 4-piece which features full wells handle and fighting butt.
The shorter 8ft is ideal for small rivers and light Stillwater use. The 10ft is at the other end of the spectrum and is perfect for larger rivers or Still waters, casting heavier lines and larger flies.So whatever type of venue you frequent, there is a fly rod in the range to suit all styles of fly fishing. Some budget fly rods compromise on performance and quality, using cheaper materials with very little testing. The GR20 however, is the exception. Smooth, forgiving, medium action which enables you to cast with ease. Anodised Aluminium saltwater safe reel seat with twin locking nuts. Hook keeper ring on all models. Each model supplied with Cordura rod tube. Just select your choice from the drop down menu.
