About the Greys GR50 Fly Rod
The new GR50 high performance fly rod from leading fly fishing brand Greys replaces the much loved GRXi+ rod range. The GRXi+ and former GRX rods set the benchmark in mid-priced fly rods over the last 10years. So the question has to be asked - has Greys improved on their flagship model? From the team here at Angling Active the answer is a resounding YES.
Considering its price, The GR50 rod range from Greys punches well above its weight. With an unrivalled taper design that casts a fly line effortlessly at long and short distances the GR50 rod range is sure to impress you. The fast recovering middle to tip action is complimented with an understated yet modern non flash Ice Grey finish blank.
Assembling your rod by the water is quick and easy with locating markers on the blank on both sections male and female. The GR50 is offered in 4 sections for ease of transport and storage convenience. You will appreciate the quality segmented rod tube that separates and protects each individual section.
All these features, backed up with the Greys Worldwide Warranty - the GR50 is sure to be a winner!

About the Greys Platinum Fly Line
One of the best performing fly lines on the market today. The extended front and rear tapers and the long belly of the line gives tremendous distance and subtle presentation.
The low-diameter running line has less air resistance for increased line speed, easier mending and longer distance. The subtle, memory-free coating irons out loops and makes for long, smooth casts and great line presentation. The floating lines come in heron grey or high-visibility orange.
