Elevation Rods utilises the very latest in material and pattern technology, as well as featuring several more environmentally friendly components, these rods are revolutionary.

For the last couple of years, we have been on a journey towards more sustainable products at Guideline, and the Elevation rod series has been the benchmark for our future rod production. We have worked hard and into the details to do whatever is possible to make these rods the best choice for those anglers who care about the environment. The rod blank development process eliminates any unnecessary material in each section. It also gives us the possibility to monitor power in every part of the blank much more accurately than before. These rods are extremely light and responsive (9’ #5 is 72g / 2,53oz), and yet the strongest standard rods we have created.

In general the rods have a sensitive and protective tip that is very stable and crisp, with a smooth progressive curve further down the blank with a powerful butt section. The action is easy to cast, forgiving and produce accurate casts at high line speed. The rods have great line feel and you will easily connect to the rod to all types of casts. Summed up these are top modern rods with light feel and an action that suits anglers at all levels.
  • Matte, lightly buffed blanks with no added coloration, giving them a dark graphite grey appearance. Any possible excessive carbon waste particles are collected in a separate tank before water is passed on to the community cleaning facility. The blanks have a soft spiral pattern and thin, matte coating.
  • New, improved full wells grips of 3A cork without rubber cork reinforcements. This reduces the levels of epoxy-resins needed in the grips. Even the lighter rods have a small cork butt, and from 9´ #7 and up, there are full-size fighting butts on all rods.
  • Metal parts of reel seats are “clear anodized,” which is the least toxic process possible when using aluminum reel seats. We use no chrome (lead) or paint in the anodizing bath.
  • For the coatings on blank, guides, and the mounting glue for grips and reel seat, we use a bio-based low-toxic Epoxy, tested and approved with extremely low levels of regulated chemicals. This also adds to a better working atmosphere in the assembly phase of production, reducing health hazardous odors to a minimum.
  • Rods are mounted with light wire single-leg guides and KW style stripper guides. We use a gun smoke powder coat finish on a stainless frame. Best sustainable choice, still hard and with no chrome plating, which contains lead. Please note that the 10´models are fitted with classic double leg snake guides.
  • Rod bag and rod tube cover are made of recycled REPREVE™ polyester.
  • The rod tubes are made of recyclable Polypropylene (PP), they are lighter and have 20% lower diameters than standard PVC tubes. This will save space and money when rods are transported both from the factory and by the user. Given its durability and the possibility to melt and reform into plastic pellets, PP is both reusable and recyclable for producing new goods.
  • All rods are 4-piece except 7'6" #3 that is 3-pcs.

Model info
9ft #4-5-6: The 4 and 5 wt are typical all-around trout rods for dries, nymphs, and lighter streamers. The 6wt is the choice for bigger flies, bigger fish, and windier conditions.

9ft #7-8-9: Typical rods for heavier fishing after migratory trout, pike, salmon, seatrout, and bonefish. These rods suit rivers, lakes, coastal, and flats fishing where big fish and demanding conditions are common. Unique balance and weight for rods in this category.

9'9ft #6-7-8: Rods made for both lake and river fishing after trout, seatrout, and salmon. The new length of 9'9ft is the ultimate compromise between 9'6 and 10ft. It gives you the power of the 9'6ft and the reach/distance of the 10ft. Lighter, crisper, and better feel than the 10ft.

10ft #6-7: Dedicated rods for "stillwater fishing," typical actions for the very popular lake fishing practiced by the British with a varied selection of lines in different densities and several flies on the leader. Please note that the 10´models are fitted with classic double leg snake guides.

Since 1993, knowledge and passion have been reflected in each of our products. We are dedicated to meet the high expectations of the modern fly angler with lesser impact on nature, while giving rise to everlasting moments by the water.

Because, at the end of the day, It’s all about the experience.
