Master Nymph Bellator VII PM2 10′ (P = Power – M = Medium Action)
When you combine countless decades of American carbon fiber composite innovation with countless decades of rod design experience and decades of competitive angling experience the results can be quite shocking…..
The Master Nymph Bellator Vll PM2 10′ is the perfect place to start for those just becoming familiar with Euro Nymphing techniques, and its blank action is very similar to the original range of Bellator rods that were launched in 2017. For those more experienced in this technique, its still an absolute favourite choice!
This rod is designed from the ground up to be the ultimate Euronymphing product. The mandrels were designed in house right here in Washington state and manufactured in California to our specifications. The carbon fiber material and resins are selected specifically for this rod. The action is designed utilizing decades of top level competition experience. Every single part of this rod with the exception of the cork used to style our proprietary grip taper, is hand built in the USA using only fully made in the USA components.
The whole range of Bellator VII Euronymphing rods are painstakingly built by hand here in Washington State, and our builders use an incredibly small thread wrap finished with a beautiful copper highlight and a special epoxy compound to maximize weight relief on each of the single foot REC Recoil guides.
All Bellator VII models feature our very own in house designed and fully built in the USA custom reel seat which is built using 7075 grade aluminum and finished using a type 3 anodizing process.
The REC Recoil components used on all of our specific Euronymphing rods are finished in stealthy black pearl and are treated with a PVD (physical vapor deposition) coating.
PVD is a process in which a solid material is vaporized in a vacuum and deposited onto the surface of a part. These coatings are not simply metal layers though. Instead, compound materials are deposited atom by atom, forming a thin, bonded, metal or metal-ceramic surface layer that greatly improves the appearance, durability, and/or function of a part or product, in the case of fly rod guides, it greatly improves “shootability” and durability which in turn protects not only the actual guide itself, but also your fly line and leader!
