Vapa, meaning “rod” in Finnish, lives up to its name as it’s a rod for everybody. Easy to cast for beginners with its medium fast action but the more experienced angler shouldn’t be fooled by the price tag. Performs superbly for even the most experienced anglers.
We give a rating for the carbon that is used in each of our graphite rods. The higher the number the higher the modulus of the carbon that is used for the rod. The rating is closely related to the tonnage of the carbon in each of the rods. However this is not the whole truth as we use different carbon mixtures to achieve the wanted rod action and also the resins differ from model to model. But this rating is an indication of the main carbon used in the blank. Our premium rods use graphene in the resin and rods are identified by the Graphene logo.
Kalu reels are real value for money. Their shape is from our famous GT reel, just fattened up. They are machined die-cast reels which have eaten a sealed, smooth, drag system consisting of stainless steel and carbon discs. The one turn drag adjustment knob is fully machined. Kalu reels can take more than enough backing with a suitable fly line.
Meri has a thin and durable DuraSlim coating. DuraSlim enables us to manufacture a line with thinner running line than before without sacrifising durability. The low stretch core helps you to feel the takes and it also transfers casting energy far more efficiently than traditional cores. The tippet ring at the front end of the line and ready made loop at the back make it easy to attach to the backing and leader. Phthalate free
