AS00001 - MacKenzie Fly Rods

Double handed fx1
13ft 8 wt
4 piece

The FX1 Graphene uses F1 and Aerospace technology to help produce the Ultimate Fly Rod. The Mackenzie FX1 is the first double-handed salmon rod to use graphene, a Nobel Prize winning material that is set to revolutionise carbon-composite engineering.

We’ve taken the best of our rod design experience along with the expertise of Professor Gary Savage who was a former Formula One World Team Champion and one of the world’s leading experts in carbon and composites. This combination of world leading knowledge in carbon composite technology along with our rod design experience has built what we believe to be the best fly rod ever made.

This improvement has resulted in greater performance, by strengthening the blank and speeding up its recovery. This rod will give the angler the ability to cast the same distance as before with less effort, however when more distance is needed there is a reserve of power available which will require minimal extra effort to achieve.

  • Uses F1 & Aerospace Technology
  • Nobel Prize Winning Material
  • Double Handed 4 & 6 Piece Rods
  • Single Handed & Switch Rods


The 13ft rod is a popular size of rod, which can be used on small rivers for salmon, or on the bigger rivers in low water conditions. This size of rod is also popular for sea trout fishing in Tierra Del Fuego. It has a fairly through progressive action, with a relatively fast recovery. The balanced action of the FX1 rod will cast Spey lines and modern Skagit styles and shooting head systems equally well. This rod has a uniquely designed taper and action, designed for accurate Spey casting.

Redington Fly Reels


The RISE continues our ongoing quest to think beyond the bounds of traditional reel designs. It features a u-shaped large-arbor and a compact carbon fiber drag system that offers smooth fish stopping torque. Lightweight design shows through in the modern aesthetic of the RISE, and thoughtful details like twin molded soft-touch handles and oversized drag knob help the reel perform in the hands of any angler.

G3 Phased Density 5 Shooting Head Range

Innovations in line design and technology have come a long way in recent times. At Mackenzie we always strive to produce the most efficient coatings and profiles to maximise the performance characteristics of every line we produce.

Each portion of the line has been precisely calculated during design and manufacture to provide the most fluid transition of density while retaining maximum casting efficiency. Every section of the new line profile descends progressively at the perfect angle and trajectory.

Also available is a Multi Tip shooting head which incorporates the new system, our 3 phased density heads and double density tips allow you to fish at your chosen depth quickly and efficiently.

* Additional tips available for multi-tip systems.

  • Unique tapering system
  • Allows perfect presentation and turn over
  • Distinctive colour change between main line and running line
  • Low stretch core delivers more response when casting and greater sensitivity when a fish takes
  • The specially formulated extra supple polyurethane coating, creates tighter loops for perfect stability and performance
