Compact 5 piece model - Designed to be the perfect travel companion.

Fizzing with Energy

When I got my first Sunray rod, the JL nymphing rod, it was the best rod I had ever used…until…Tom introduced the Volition 10' #2, which quickly became the best rod I had ever used. Or at least it was until Tom introduced the Microlite 10' #2, which was quite definitely the best rod I had ever used.
I now have the brand-new 10' #2 Microlite GT and here are my initial thoughts on the new rod.
First, moving the reel holder to the bottom of the but section makes a huge difference to the balance. With a fully loaded Sunray Atom reel attached, the new seating position for the reel brings the pivot point for the rod to exactly where my thumb sits on the grip. The balance is perfect.
Second, changing to a five-section rod also seems to add a lot. In combination with the pivot point moving into the handle, the rod’s action is stunning. It positively fizzes with energy that transfers efficiently to produce effortless and precise casting. I am really very, very impressed and, while Tom is clearly on a journey of continual incremental improvement, I simply cannot imagine how this one can possible be improved.
According to the Sunray website the ‘GT’ designation stands for Grand Tour. But in my mind, it clearly stands for ‘Go To’ because this is quite definitely my new go to rod. It is quite definitely the best rod I have ever used!
