Perfect Fly "Ultimate Six" Construction Quality
The Construction of the fly rod determines how efficiently it's going to transfer the energy
from the arm of the person casting the rod to the fly. A fly rod that is constructed poorly
won't transfer the energy efficiently. The tip of the rod often wobbles when the forward
stroke of the cast is completed. This wobbling tip of a rod causes the fly line to wobble, or
to unwind in a weak, inaccurate manner. This loss of energy also reduces the length and
the accuracy of the cast. The better the rod is constructed, the higher its efficiency in
transmitting energy. Highly efficient rods cast accurately at all distances.
The best fly rods are put together with great care but if you are to expect high quality,
premium performance, they should also be constructed using the best materials
available. Although the modulus of the fibers used isn't everything, in general, the higher
the modulus of the graphite, the better the graphite. The graphite used in our "Perfect
Fly 'Ultimate Six" fly rod is high modulus carbon. This provides great strength at a
reduced weight. It also provides superior sensitivity.
The higher the modulus of the graphite, the lighter the rod for a given amount of
stiffness, but keep in mind it's the exact methods used in the construction of the blank
that's important. The amount of resin and additives used, and the exact process the
materials are combined in making the blank is critical. The lightness advantage is only
valuable if the rod is strong.
Recent research and development in the manner in which the materials in a fly rod blank
are put together has greatly improved the performance of graphite rods. The way a rod
forms a loop and the way the loop travels out for the rod is critically important in
obtaining distance and accuracy. Our fly rods transfers a great amount of energy with a
minimum amount of effort.
The fly reel seat is REC's Master Series Nickel Silver NSGX- DK (Diagonal Knurl) model.
The Uplocking design is REC's top of the line reel seat. It has a skeleton barrel featuring
a trim band, decorative knurl butt cap, knurled nut, knurled slide band with fine trim lines,
and knurled fixed hood.
Reel Seat Spacer
The spacer is made of beautiful exotic stabilized Amboyna Burl wood. Amboyna is a
marvelously luxurious burl from a tree commonly known as narra. It's technically from the
Pterocarpus Indicus of the family Leguminosae. The wood varies in color from yellow to
golden brown but is mostly red. Each spacer is uniquely figured with numerous,
captivating swirls. It is the most expensive wood spacer offered by any of the fly reel seat
The REC cord fly rod handle has a western style grip and is constructed of high grade
"Flor" cork direct from Portugal. The "Flor" grade is the highest grade of cork.
The winding check is REC's Nickel Silver model. It trims the handle section of the fly rod
out and compliments the nickel silver reel seat.
The guides are REC's Double Foot RECOIL Guides, Black Pearl RSNXB Titanium
guides. RECOIL Guides are made from a special nickel titanium alloy with unique
physical properties. Regular rod guides are plated or use ceramic inserts to provide wear
resistance. RECOIL guides are made from an extremely hard but flexible "Shape
Memory" alloy, which doesn't require plating, cannot corrode in any environment, and
returns to its original shape after repeated deformations. The double foot guides offer a
little added protection over the single foot guide when your fighting very large fish. The
guides have three light coats of epoxy rather than the typical factory single heavy coat.
They are totally enclosed with the epoxy such that water cannot get under the guides
and such that all of the wrapping thread is throughly covered and protected.
The two striper guides are Fuji's new Concept Alconite guides. These guides feature an
Alconite ring and black stainless steel frame. Alconite is a special form of ceramic that
offers strength, light weight, and durability. Alconite has 80% greater compression
resistance and is 20% lighter than aluminum oxide. Fuji's diamond polishing give alconite
a smoother finish than Hardloy. When alconite is combined with Fuji's New Concept
lightweight frame, it results in a guide up to 35% lighter and up to 50% stronger than
The tip top guide is Snake Brand's Black Nickel model.
The hook keeper is REC's PHKB-S black wire frame hook keeper.
