The designers brief was simple: create a fly rod range that would both cast further and more accurately. Not much to ask!

With all rods torque control and power conversion are the keys to distance and accuracy. The NewEra SLR's have been designed around a foundation of Bias Carbon technology. The two directions of the high grade carbon sheet have been manipulated into 45 degree effectively transmitting the energy and compression evenly around the blank but resisting twist during loading.

This application of our own Bias material effectively 'doubles' the control level of blank twist and buckling. Combined with a responsive and crisp recovery in the front end of each NewEra delivers notably more precise line control, directional change and improved energy conservation: accuracy and distance all in one.

The V-Joint system also offers a hidden benefit. The innovative over-cap system allows the rod to internally maintain a Constant Taper Profile. Unlike normal over cap joints the NewEra does not increase in diameter at each female joint and then reduce quickly. It is shaped even and constant. This results in a purer power transfer.

Each rod was subjected to exhaustive testing and fine tuning by Hywel Morgan ensuring that each one not only delivers the intended line rating but has the ability to comfortably handle a rating range either side of that indicated. Titanium SiC guides combined with single leg snakes ensure slick line travel and to round the challenge off we achieved all this in a four section assembly.

Reviews for this product
Nice rod, good price
Very nicely made, probably the highest quality cork on any rod I have owned.
I'm no expert caster, but I can put out a fair line without much effort.
Sturdy rod tube and canvas bag provided.
As others have said, surprised there are no alignment dots, use the keeper ring to align the butt section.
Overall very happy with the rod for the price.

Quality rod at a bargain price
If you have read the rod description above you will have seen that the V joint and X wrap are claimed to reduce the bias in casting so as to straighten the casting track. It does seem to do this from the casting I have done, so it isn't just a bit of sales hype. One of the surprises was that the rod does not have alignment dots or lines on the sections and is a bit of oversight on a rod with a premium price at it's original rrp. Another surprise was the sturdy reel seat, where most manufacturers are going to lightweight reel seats, this rod has a full metal, double up-locking one. It may explain the 111g claimed weight for the 9'#6.
