Description

Daniel Factor from X-Factor Angling and Shaun Carstens from REEL Fly Fishing is proud to
announce their next-generation fly rods.
Gravity Fly Rods is a collective effort from both Shaun and Daniel, and the G-Series of
graphene-powered fly rods pushes the boundaries of what you can expect from a South
African brand.
Gravity Fly Rods ushers in the latest advances in materials and techniques to the modern
South African fly fisher. Utilizing graphene extensively through the blanks has resulted in fly
rods that are stronger, lighter, and more precise. Careful attention has been paid to every
aspect of the G-Series, from high-quality components and materials, small intricate touches to
the South African flag being displayed proudly on the fly blank and rod tubes.
Holding a Gravity Fly Rod in hand you will immediately feel a sense of occasion, knowing
this is a fly rod that has been built to offer you the best possible experience from two of South
African’s favorite fly-fishing companies.

Graphene Explained:
Graphene was discovered in 2004 by Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov at the
University of Manchester. Their discovery won them a Nobel Prize in physics in 2010.
Graphene is a carbon allotrope that is a single molecule thick and has incredible strength, in
fact, Graphene is the strongest known molecule (100x stronger than steel of the equivalent
mass)
Graphene is elastic, much more so than graphite which is quite brittle in comparison. This
elasticity lends itself naturally to fly rods as it aids to dramatically improving recovery rate,
and action while reducing physical weight.
X-factor Angling and REEL Fly Fishing are the first locally-based companies to offer
Graphene powered fly rods to South African fly anglers.

Working Together:
Combing our knowledge and skillset has allowed us to create GRAVITY with a range of
specialized fly rods that offer incredibly high performance with a build quality to match.
Development, design, and testing time was nearly two years for Gravity Fly Rods. This
extensive development time meant we could refine each rod to ensure that not only surpasses
fly rods at a much higher price point but also to redefine what a fly rod at our price point can
offer.
From The Ground Up:

Creating a blank from the ground up results in a fly rod that is beautifully balanced, poised,
and designed to maximize its length and action. The Gravity G-series are dedicated 10-foot
fly rods with a FAST action and ULTRA-FAST recovery rate. These fly rods lend themselves
exceptionally well to still waters and larger rivers. The G-Series length gives you a host of
immediate benefits, such as improved tippet protection, easier loading, and better reach when
nymphing.
The feedback and sensation that Graphene provides to the angler results in a fly rod that
behaves like an extension of your arm. Pin-point accuracy is accompanied by a sublimely
smooth fast action that turns over big flies with ease, or when needed can delicately lay a dry
fly down effortlessly.
The recovery rate is one of the stand-out features of the G-Series and was the driving force
behind the use of Graphene. We further increased the recovery rate by keeping the blank raw
and unsanded. The unsanded blank also increases our fly rods' overall action while reducing
the swing weight.
Every aspect of the Gravity range of fly rods has been emphasized to showcase Graphene and
the numerous advantages this next-generation material provides.
