The Most Advanced Technology in The World  

The NEW Sabel Affinity 9ft fly rod, 4 piece, #6 weight, represents the forefront of rod design - boasting 'Vero-Core' variable weight helical core - born from the desire to create lighter, more efficient engineered 'blanks'. This new helical technology starts with super lightweight helical reinforcement at the tip and progresses to a more powerful helical that delivers the cross sectional stiffness renowned in the Affinity.

Thanks to the constant taper system, the Affinity loads beautifully to deliver the punch needed for distance and accuracy. A delicate tip area loads the rod smoothly and quickly into the solid upper mid area, making it perfect for delicate situations. Matched with a strong butt area, the rod delivers plenty of power down low when needed.

A Professional review of the NEW Sabel Affinity.

The NEW Sabel 'Affinity' 9ft fly rod, 4 piece, #6 weight.

First impressions of this new rod are the stunning cosmetics, the green anodized Struble reel-seat, compliments the metallic olive 4 piece blank with sensible 'lining-up' dots on each section to align them perfectly. Topped with the Titanium alloy 'Recoil' single-leg guides and Fuji (K-series) Titanium 'stripper' SiC guides - all beautifully held in place with matching olive thread. The slim shaped Flor grade half-wells handle is a joy to hold whichever type of grip you prefer. Giving a total weight of only 102g.

This rod is a fast action fly rod that can easily cope with long lengths of aerialised line and achieve distance casts with ease and grace. It handles the latest weight forward lines with ease and copes equally well with the distance lines to.

It equally performs well when casting for accuracy with it's quick tip recovery and a responsiveness that lets you feel the line throughout the full casting stroke to the stop. The handle is slim for a more relaxed grip and with a total weight of this rod being only 102g that makes for tireless casting.

To sum everything up - this rod is truly EXCEPTIONAL - in fact I was so impressed - I bought one!!!.
