The Swift Fly Fishing Company The Black Mamba ReviewThe Swift Fly Fishing Company The Black Mamba Review

The Black Mamba…

After a short practice on grass, I was excited to use the new fly rod on some local water. After just a couple of casts, I hooked into one of the Peacock bass we have here in Florida. The rod felt great, was happy with both distance and accuracy. The rod is absolutely stunning to look at; it was so light I had to keep reminding myself I had a fly rod in my hand. They grip was comfortable, and felt secure in my hand. Thanks all for a beautiful fly rod that I know I will enjoy for years to come.

It was a game changer, best rod I ever used , smooth and effortless. I have had other high end rods but none up to this level, it didn’t make me catch fish but it made it more enjoyable when I got into them . Great action on the rod and I forgot to mention the rod itself is beautiful! Truly Epic!

A most impressive and unique design with a beautiful finish. An rare item that justifies the extra cost. The 6 wt. is more than sufficient for light saltwater applications. Here’s hoping that an 8 or 10 weight follows.

The 690G is a masterpiece

My expectations were blow away by this marvel of craftsmanship. Matched with a second hand Epic fly reel, I used Airflo TRC fly line (which was hard to get in the USA) and made the most outstanding Tongariro roll casts I've ever attempted. Double hauls launched like a rocket. Truly a work of art, it will be the first rod I reach for from now on.
