Model

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.

Rod with feel

I bought the 10’#4 wow it’s a lovely lovely rod with loads of feel and really light weight, I also luv the fact it’s a 5 piece meaning it packs down much smaller than the usual 4 piece rods. Many thanks Colin.

The Microlite GT really is a thing of beauty, and we're pleased you're loving yours. Thanks Colin!

Microlite 10' #4- Grayling slayer

Some nice grayling caught on Sunday, most to a Grayling Slayer. Microlite GT 10' 4 weight is incredibly versatile for dry fly or various nymphing methods.

Very impressed with its performance

I’ve been using this rod for about a month & have been very impressed with its performance. Here is a list of what I like about it:
• It has a crisp but progressive action that does several things. It effectively casts a wide range of line weights from a 0.55mm diameter micronymph line to a 4 weight. It is forgiving enough to give good protection to light tippets (0.10mm/7x)
• The stand-off single leg rings hold the wet line off the blank which improves casting distance
• The matt black finish helps to reduce the risk of spooking fish
• The super-slim quality cork handle is very comfortable & not excessively long
• The high quality down-locking reel seat & light-weight blank & fittings help with the rod balance when Euronymphing

In my opinion this is not a rod for bullying big fish whilst using heavy tippets, or for fishing big streamers. It is also not a rod for casting huge distances, but it is capable of casting just a 20’ leader in calm conditions, whilst performing well at all normal casting distances. It is a rod for finesse-fishing, perfect for dry fly work with 5x to 8x tippets & for Euronymphing. So far I have landed wild brown trout up to 3lb 7oz with it & this rod bends right down to the butt whilst playing these big fish, absorbing all of their plunges & surges.

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.
