The FX1 Graphene uses F1 and Aerospace technology to help produce the Ultimate Fly Rod. The Mackenzie FX1 is the first double-handed salmon rod to use graphene, a Nobel Prize winning material that is set to revolutionise carbon-composite engineering. We’ve taken the best of our rod design experience along with the expertise of Professor Gary Savage who was a former Formula One World Team Champion and one of the world’s leading experts in carbon and composites. This combination of world leading knowledge in carbon composite technology along with our rod design experience has built what we believe to be the best fly rod ever made. 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.

With the new FX1 Graphene rod we are at the forefront of global design and composite engineering using new materials being developed for the aerospace industry.The Mackenzie FX1 double handers are available in a 13 ft 8 wt, 14 ft 9 wt and 15 ft 10 wt. The rod can handle all lines from longer traditional Spey lines to short Scandi and Skagit style shooting-heads.
