Mackenzie DTX NX1 Atlas Travel Double Handed Fly Rod

Product Code
Price from Price from £549.00

Our new 6 piece Mackenzie NX1 Atlas range is the ideal fly rod for storage and travelling. It’s compact nature means the rod can be taken on a flight even as hand luggage. 

As with all Mackenzie products these new rods have been fully tested in some of the world’s most demanding and challenging fishing locations and excelled at all times.

Moving on from their award-winning designs the team at Mackenzie are very excited about this new range of 6 piece Nano tube technology rods. The new NXI Atlas rods load slightly further down the blank than the other NX1 models but they still retain a fast recover giving you the perfect action for casting both traditional Spey lines and the full assortment of modern-day shooting heads and Skagit fly lines.

11’4 NX1 Atlas (switch) #8

Switch rods have taken a great leap in popularity in recent years with many anglers adopting lighter tackle for various forms of fishing techniques. The versatility and fun of modern switch rods has been the main draw in the increase in popularity.

Switch rods can be used in many situations where the bigger rods may not be appropriate, salmon fishing in low water conditions, small spate rivers as well as sea trout fishing. The Switch rod perfectly forms the transition between the single hander and the double handed salmon rods.

The new Mackenzie NX1 Switch rod are of course crafted to the same high spec as the double handed rods and are also constructed using the same technology as the Mackenzie NX1 range. This rod went through comprehensive development and testing to create the perfect combination of flex and recovery giving a perfectly designed taper which generates speed for precise and accurate casting.

12’7 NX1 Atlas #8

Shorter double handed rods like this are becoming increasingly popular, making rods of this style the go to rod for fishing salmon in medium to small sized rivers around the world. This is also a very popular rod for fishing for large sea trout and steelheads. Like its big brother the 13’7 Atlas, it has a fairly deep progressive action but importantly retaining a fast recovery.

Its a good all rounder and is perfect for fishing right across the world for salmon, sea trout and steelheads in both medium and large systems.
