DetailsIf you thought the Greys GR50 fly rod was a winner, you might want to take a little step back and make some room for the real star of the Greys GR rod series. Presenting, brand new for 2016, the Greys GR70 Fly Rod.
For all the fans of the Greys rod range, the GR70 is part of the new GR series and is a prestigious, more powerful upgrade from the GR50 that will seriously impress you. The GR70 fly rod has been specifically created and designed for use in both stillwater and river fishing.
The GR70 Fly Rod is ideally suited for anglers who have more experience and have developed a good sense of timing and casting techniques. Combining these kinds of fly fishing skills with the GR70 and you will feel like you are literally casting magic.
The GR70 is built from high modulus carbon and this innovative material produces a very light and very sensitive rod body. The GR50 was made of high intermediate modulus carbon that is slightly less stiff than the GR70. The GR70 fly rod's stiffness results in a much more durable and strong core rod that is then specially engineered to avoid any kind of brittleness.
The high modulus carbon construction combined with a fast action, makes the GR70 incredibly powerful and high performing. The stiffness along with limited flexibility allows the rod to be cast effortlessly when fishing in windy weather. It will also help you to generate longer casts and the strength will help you bring in a fish quicker and easier, especially larger fish.
These 4 piece rods have high quality and creative design features including a 2 part skeletal reel seat with an aesthetically stunning carbon woven spacer. The skeletal reel seat is a benchmark in handle construction design and the light weight materials will keep your rod consistently light in weight from top to bottom.
Additionally, the GR70 also features rod line up I.D marked dots to allow you to seamlessly line up your rod eyes with complete ease so you can set up your rod and get out on the water much quicker.
The Greys GR70 Fly Rod is a dark, olive gunmetal grey coloured rod with silver highlights and features a superior, high quality AAA cork handle. The rod is available with a reverse half wells handle on the 9ft #5 and the 9ft #6. The rest are supplied with full wells handles with fighting butts.
The Greys GR70 Fly Rod is available in various lengths with different AFTM ratings that you can select from our drop down menu.
Each rod is supplied with a high quality rod tube and is covered by Greys Warranty. Please visit Greys Fishing website for more detail.

- Received some really good technical advice over the phone regarding the length/rating, best suited for my type of fishing. Really pleased with service, delivery and the rod performs really well. Review by Jonathan (Created 20/05/2019)
- Handles really well! Review by Fishybusiness (Created 13/07/2016)
I bought the Greys GR70 single handed fly rod 11ft 7wt from Angling Active on Thursday 19th May 2016.
I paid for next day delivery and initially Parcelforce thought the item wouldn't been delivered until Monday which I wasn't happy with. When I phoned Angling Active to tell them they very very helpful and assured me that if the rod didn't arrive today they'd refund me the next day delivery charge without question. I was very pleased to hear this as many other companies wouldn't have offered a penny. However, the rod arrived on Friday morning (next day) as I had hoped for!
After unpacking the rod and waxing the male joints I loaded it up with my Greys GTS700 reel (not bought with the rod) and took it for a quick cast in the garden. The rod is really lightweight and has a very flexible tip. Nice fast action and easy to handle.
I'm really impressed with the rod and with the customer service at Angling Active.
Having visited the store recently and had a good experience there and now having used their online service and had a good experience I can certainly highly recommend them. Review by Jamie (Created 20/05/2016)
