The Saltwater Game changer 2.0 So Why ? Why redesign possibly the greatest saltwater fly rod ever built? Why reduce the shaft diameter on selected sizes for better wind penetration and reduced weight? Why redesign the mandrels and pattern layups to squeeze every last drop of performance out of the aerospace grade carbon fibre and advanced Sintrix 440 resin system? Why upgrade the guides to the latest generation in ceramic lined titanium recoils? Why upgrade to a single start scratch resistant hard anodised reel seat? Why build it in a Rod factory with 147 years of rod building heritage? The simple answer is why not.
