Snowbee Diamond Fly Rods
Diamond Fly Rods
This is where it all started, back in 1994! The very first Snowbee Fly Rods, all those years ago, were the ‘Diamond Fly’, which had a loyal following amongst fly fishers. The new Diamond range, launched in 2008, brought back everything that was good about those early rods in terms of quality and reliability, but incorporated the latest thinking in fly rod design and material technology. They soon became our biggest and fastest selling range of fly rods ever, as discerning customers came to appreciate the performance and value and in 2010 we upgraded the entire range to 4pce construction only and added a few new rods to extend this popular range still further.
For 2011 we are continuing unchanged across the Diamond renge. With the continuing trend of best sales ever again in 2010, after the introduction of the completely upgraded 4 pce models, there is nothing we could do to improve these rods without significantly increasing their price. As they are, they represent extremely good value and can match the performance many rods carrying far more expensive labels. Retaining the same crisp, middle to tip action of their predecessors, the modern Diamond Series is exceptionally good value and starting now at just over £100, they compete on performance with many of the best rods on the market today. Using great quality materials, we spared nothing in producing the best looking, best fishing 4-piece fly rods we could achieve at this price.
Every rod in the range has been designed with a particular fishing application in mind and 2010 saw us introdcue 6 new models to the Diamond range. These new longer, lower line weight models, will appeal particularly to river fishers in central and eastern Europe, the home of Czech nymphing techniques. However, they will also find favour with the increasing number of anglers switching to lighter line classes and continental methods. The Diamond range features fast action 4-pce blanks finished in a lustrous deep olive colour, with self colour whippings. Subtle gold graphics and single bands of gold on each ring whipping, give these rods a classic appeal. The quality, brushed aluminium reel seats have olive green burl wood insert, complementing the colour of the blanks.
With oversize Silicon carbide ‘Sic’ lined stripper rings, hard chrome, high lift snakes and oversize hayfork tip ring for maximum line speed, the overall finish simply oozes casting performance. Every rod comes complete with matching olive cotton-drill rod bag and a strong Cordura covered rod tube embossed with our leather “fly” logo.
