The MacKenzie fly fishing team set a goal to produce a multi section Salmon rod without any compromise on action or performance. The MacKenzie Atlas six piece rod was a result of many months of development and testing to produce the correct tapering and feedback in the blank. Following the success of the MacKenzie Atlas range of rods, they have now taken them forward by adapting our award winning MacKenzie FX1Graphene technology and as a result have created the new MacKenzie Atlas Graphene rods.
This improvement has resulted in greater performance, by strengthening the blank and speeding up its recovery. This rod will give the angler the ability to cast the same distance as before with less effort, however when more distance is needed there is a reserve of power available which will require minimal extra effort to achieve.
As with all MacKenzie products these new rods have been fully tested in some of the worlds most demanding and challenging fishing locations and excelled at all times. The balanced action of the New Atlas Graphene rods will work very well with Spey lines, Shooting heads and modern day Skagit systems.
