Snowbee Classic 10ft 7-wt Rod

While the Classic range might be Snowbee’s ‘budget’ series of fly rods, there’s nothing ‘entry level’ that we’ve seen about the 10ft Classic for a 6/7-wt line.

The bronze-coloured finish to the four-piece carbon blank oozes class – it’s very similar to the FLi series of Sage rods launched a few years ago. And the full wells handle with uplocking anodised reel fitting is a quality item.

Whippings are in a deep reddish brown and this 10ft model incorporates two lined stripping guides and hard chrome snakes for the rest of the ringing. Action is a pleasant middle to tip and it’s a rod we’d set up equally happily with a 6-wt floating for light reservoir nymphing or a fast-sinking 7-wt for pulling.

And the price of this classy Classic? Just £88. It’s a steal. However, it’s also worth noting that the rod is available as the backbone of one of Snowbee’s Classic kits. Just £130 gets you the rod, a reel and a line!
