Tim Rajeff and Tom Larimer have just released this film about the Rage Compact
They just haven’t invented this line but a new word as well … “thinder”
An MPR-Spey! You’re kidding … uh uh. As from now its possible to practice Spey casting indoors; just add the MPR Spey Adaptor to your MPR and your “Single Spey, Snake Roll, and Perry Poke” take on a whole new dynamic.
Interested? If you want one, click here or drop us a mail.
The crew over at Rajeff Sports are already busily testing the new ECHO3 Spey Rods ….
