The new rod series Complete Graphene has been created after meticulous testing, and then testing some more. This has happened mostly during practical fishing and over a period of three years.
The goal has been to develop a rod series with as little weight as possible, but which at the same time is powerful.The idea of being able to cast very far with little force has been absolutely central and a red thread, throughout the work of developing the new series, Complete Graphene.
Complete Graphene is a bit like our Nitro-series, but the action in this series is a little deeper and have a tighter top. Using the brand new material graphene, it has become possible to develop rods with a tight and strong top, without having to add extra mass and weight to the top part.
SOMETHING QUITE SPECIAL
A deep and flat action, short stroke, tight top part and ultra-light weight are the key words that can describe the characteristics of Complete Graphene.
These characteristics have been made possible using 46 ton carbon + IM8 carbon with Graphene-resin. The surface of the rods is made with a super-thin lacquer layer, stripper guide, REC Cerecoil double foot and snake guides, REC Ultra Light and together with a custom and very light reel attachment, this helps to make Complete Graphene a very special rod series, with very special features.
The feeling that you are hardly holding «anything», that you can cast lightly and far, even with small and short movements, but at the same time have a rod that never gives up, and where you can really put in all the power you want for the really long casts in all conditions – these are experiences the new rod series will give you.
LIKE HAND IN GLOVE
The rods are developed and tested using many different lines. An important factor has been that each rod should fit exactly the specified line class on the rod and that, especially, by the use of Syrstad complete SCS and SCSS line series, it should feel as «Wow, – this fits perfectly together!»
This is also why the name of the new series is Complete, a rod series that is attempted made as complete as possible, but also should fit as «hand in glove» to the Syrstad complete-lines.
I feel like we’ve made it and hope that you’ll experience the same thing.
Good luck to everyone!
