The new Xplorer Guide 2 Fly Rods 10ft Extenders have been uniquely tailored for ever changing river requirements. This series of rods enables the angler to change the rod from a 9ft casting rod to a 10ft nymphing rod by simply inserting the 1ft extender piece. No need to restring your fly line, the 1ft section fits between the butt and the mid butt sections. This enables you to have one rod that can be used for both casting and nymphing-all in one. They are available in 3wt and 4wt 10ft 4 +1pc.

    Great value for money! Really good product at a really great price. If you don’t have an Xplorer in your rod quiver, you better get one!!

    I recently bought a 10wt guide II rod after a lot of shopping around & couldn’t be happier with my choice. The quality of the finish is great & presents as well as some rods at twice the price. It casts beautifully & I can fish all day effortlessly. I highly recommend these rods & will definitely add more to the collection.

    A little over 7mths ago I received my first ever Guide ll 10w fitted with the XPS – S Dorado, all I can say is, it is sensational, what a great outfit, looks amazing, casts beautifully and handles big fish with ease, those who know me would say I am a bit of a Barra fanatic, and they are right! I love Barramundi Fly Fishing! Full Stop!

    I tend to use reasonably large weighted flies most of the time when targeting Barra and am wrapped in the Quality of workmanship that has gone into its design…

    If you are considering a new rod or any gear for that matter, then I suggest you check out the Xplorer Range of gear, you will not be disappointed.

    Thank you Tackle Safari and Xplorer Fly Fishing!!

    Probably one of the best performance rods I have fished with this season! Great price and excellent service from Jonty at Tackle Safari. Also purchased a reel and a few fly boxes, someone stop me from spending!!!

    Hi Jonty & Team,

    I received the Xplorer Guide 2 5wt 8-piece rod yesterday. Have tried it out this morning and found it to be quite impressive and versatile. Casts ever so smoothly with no noise as the line passes through the guides. Tried it using a WF 6WT line. It handled this line very well even into a stiff breeze. With a standard 5 WT WF line I was able to be cast quickly, accurately and delicately on short to medium casts, making it an ideal combination for small streams.

    Probably the best all round combination was teaming the rod with a 5wt WF GPX line which is rated mid way between a standard 5 & 6 wt. This produced a very pleasurable casting experience. Very pleased with the rod, it’s feel and versatility and the excellent service I received.

    I have this morning, received my rod and just wanted to say what a wonderful service you provide to online customers.

    My friend ( David Bassett) recently purchased the same rod from you and told me how pleased
    he is with it.

    As I fish in NZ every year and hoping for a trip to Scotland in 2016, it will be ideal for travel, being so compact.

    Again, compliments to you and your staff for exemplary service.
