About the Greys GR70 Salt Fly Rod
Designed for the saltwater angler is the Greys GR70 Salt Fly Rod. Brand new from the Greys 2016 rod series, this rod is 100% saltwater safe and is built from crucial components to preserve the life span of the rod and strengthen the rod's durability.
This rod works equally as well as an impressive pike and predator fly rod and features a compact 4 piece construction. The Salt Fly Rod is the superior and new version of Greys XF2 Carnivore Fly Rod and features excellent power, casting distances and fast recovery.
Featuring the 3M Powerlux technology built into the high modulus carbon, this constructs the Salt Fly Rod into a hard wearing and robust rod that has incredibly durable properties. The technology has a unique process of dispersing the nanoparticles throughout the rod's construction in a uniformed and compact technique that builds an incredibly strong core.
This technology also allows the rod's weight to be surprisingly light considering the power and strength provided from the materials. The lightness and strength of the rod provides an incredible fishing range as you'll be able to pull in some of the biggest catches and feel the smallest of nibbles. Big tropical saltwater game, or small local seatrout are both equally as enjoyable with this capable rod.
The GR70 Salt rod includes specially designed saltwater fittings to withstand against corrosion as well as last longer when you are spending a lot of time fishing in saltwater environments.
The handle of this rod is full wells with a fighting butt that is made from AAA quality cork. The reel seat has a 2 part skeletal design with an ultra modern woven carbon spacer.
The Greys GR70 Salt Fly Rod cosmetic design is stunning with a gunmetal/black coloured body featuring striking blue highlights. Each saltwater rod is supplied in it's very own rod tube and is available in a 9ft length with different AFTM ratings that you can select from our drop down menu.

About the GTS700
The Greys GTS700 Fly Reel is a highly impressive reel that is part of the GTS series from Greys. The GTS700 is the replacement for the popular GX700 Cartridge Reel.
We think that the GTS700 reel is superior in comparison to it's younger brother, the GTS500, in it's design and construction. The GTS500 is certainly impressive for the price but the GTS700 boasts quality, durability and is certainly far more advanced in it's build.
The main difference between the reels is that the GTS700 has a strong and long lasting aluminium bar stock 6061 frame construction and features a die-cast spool carrier. When we handled the reel, we could feel the combination of these two materials working together. The reel feels surprisingly light in weight but you can easily feel that it is sturdy and long lasting.
The GTS700 features certainly impressed us. The large arbour design increases line retrieve speeds that provides superior capacity for more than enough backing and the Dual Rulon drag system gave us much smoother line control.
Another point we love about the reel is the clear polycarbonate cassette spools. With the GTS700, you receive three in the package and they all feature a line ID system. This very attractive feature helps you identify the type of line you are using with the supplied pins and makes the process of identifying your line when you’re fishing incredibly easy.
Additionally, this reel makes changing to left or right hand wind effortless due to the “tool-less” feature and changing spools is a quick and easy process as well.
With it's powerful, high quality and performance combined with easy use and smooth control, we think the Greys GTS700 reel is a very attractive purchase.
The Greys GTS700 fly reel is supplied in the 7/8/9 size and is supplied in it's own reel case with 2 additional spools. We recommend you purchase the correct reel size for your fly rod and fly line.

About the Airflo 40+ Sniper Fly Line
To help people catch more fish, Airflo have developed a new aggressive short head Sniper line. The Sniper is based on the 40+ line with an easy casting condensed head and thick tip diameter, ideal for turning over heavier flies.
The Sniper has a Dual Head Design which allows the line to perform as well for lesser casters as it does for advanced casters.
Lesser casters can cast the line with only the front 15 feet of the line out the rod tip while the expert will aerialize the entire head to achieve maximum distance.
Floating and intermediate lines are looped both ends. The Sink 3 and Sink 7 are looped in the rear only.
Available in the following types:
Floating - Pale Grey / Yellow
Intermediate - Grey Blue / Yellow - 1.5 inches per sec
Sink 3 - Dark Green / Yellow - 3 inches per sec
Sink 7 - Black / Yellow - 7 inches per sec
