An ultralight, precision fly rod using the latest innovation in fly rod design. 

Compact 5 piece model - Designed to be the perfect travel companion. Featuring the world's most expensive guides - Torzite. The lightest, slimmest, hardest inserts in the world. These low friction strippers and diamond coated snakes allow you to cast further with tighter loops and greater accuracy.

The Blank - New Super Slim (SS) carbon technology, developed by Sunray. 20% slimmer. Sleek Matt Black finish. Unvarnished for that essential non reflective finish. Cork handle - 20% slimmer Flor grade cork, to give an unparalleled connection to the blank.

'Airmesh' Rod Sock - Our protective mesh sock has a padded feel with woven air holes, allowing the blank to breathe within the tube, meaning your rod can dry whilst stored in the sock. Carbon Rod Tube - A great looking brushed carbon rod tube. Lightweight, yet solid. Giving true protection for your rod.

The Microlite has gained a cult following in the ultralight fly fishing world, providing a high end, speciality model for the forward thinking specimen hunter. A precision instrument, capable of allowing you to feel every take.  The Microlite GT is a high end performance model with a true through action and lightening fast recovery.  Simply put, the Formula 1 of fly rods.

The Sunray System

I have purchased a number of items from Sunray - multiple lines, reels, leaders etc and all have been top quality.

The Microlite GT is another exceptional product from Sunray and I am over the moon with the quality, the feel, the presentation and the action of the rod.

I utilise the whole Sunray system i.e products that have been designed to be used in tandom to create a complete package.

3wt Microlite GT, 3wt short to medium distance micro thin line, line slick - can't beat it. This combination has performed on small rivers, small stillwaters and even bank fishing at Bewl water. My Vision, LOOP & Wychwood rods are now confined to the back of the shed.

Thanks for the great review....delighted to hear you're enjoying your Sunray gear.

Micro light 4#

I agree, I have not lost a fish since buying my micro 4 #. I like how it will bend through to the handle. Every fish feels like 5lb. I have 13 fly rods, and have not used any of them since I got the micro light in 2 years

Now that's what we like to hear Mick.

Great bit of kit

Responsive but still a nice soft rod to fish with throws a range of sunray lines beautifully

Thanks for taking the time to review your Microlite GT Gary. We're very pleased to hear you're enjoying it.

Great Rods

I have 3 microlite rods. 2#,4#,and 5#. They are all brilliant and, along with the masterclass lessons, have helped me become one of the best casters in my club. Also the service from Sunray is great ! I carelessly broke a section recently and Cheryl managed to find me a replacement. Many thanks again.

That's great to hear Trevor. You've got quite the collection now. Sounds like the Masterclass tutorials have helped too. Thanks from all at Sunray HQ.

Micro lite, macro fun

Lovely progressive action with great build quality and components. Delivers casts softly and accurately - very effective on spooky trout in clear water. Oh and 5 pieces make it easy to transport. Overall Sunray magic!

We're very happy to hear this Stuart. The Microlite GT is a delight isn't it. Thanks for taking the time to review it for us, from all at Sunray HQ.

Point and shoot

I bought the 10’4wt 5 pc rod and reel combo late last summer with the intention of bringing it w me on a trip to fish the US western waters of the Grand Teton National Park. I fished small streams, lakes and the mighty Snake River. Never have I utilized such a responsive rod. Coupled w the SC micro thin line w overhang marker this was a dream to use. I had to back down on the power that I put into my cast and when I did, the rod literally did all the work. It was like point the rod and shoot the line. Fantastic products all the way around.

Absolutely delighted to read this review John. You've put a smile on the faces of the Team here at Sunray HQ.

Absolutely over the moon with this rod , even better than I hoped. Great product.

Hi Nigel, Thanks so much for the positive comments, but you’ve clicked 1 star in error….I’m presuming you meant 5. Hopefully you can amend to 5 stars for us. Thanks from all at Sunray HQ.
