I was asked by the President of the Mystic Fly Rod Company to undertake a review on one of their rods. I've never heard of them before here in the UK as the company is from America and they produce a fantastic range of fly rods to cover all your requirements, they run from 2 to 8 weights and from a medium to a fast action rod. Conceived on the idea of achieving excellence, the M-Series fly rods are the flagship of the Mystic line. Using a proprietary carbon graphite material to produce the rod blank, Mystic has refined the perfect combination of graphite fibres and carefully selected resin to produce an outstanding casting, fishing and fish fighting tool. Mystic rod blanks are manufactured to the highest standards of quality control producing a blank that is perfectly balanced. The uniform spine is critically controlled during manufacturing ensuring the rod tracks perfectly resulting in acutely accurate casts. But the magic of these rods doesn't just come from using the highest quality materials, but also from the custom mandrel design as well. The M-Series combines outstanding rod blanks with the best components available. Stainless steel snake guides, Hook keeper and tip top Titanium stripping guides constructed with a quad leg design Aircraft-grade aluminium reel seats Knurled and aesthetically pleasing winding check Super high grade cork grips Up-locking reel seat with composite burl wood spacer, two locking rings with nylon locking grips Hand wrapped in black with silver inlay.
