The Origin range is built to offer all-around usability no matter the conditions, with a slim and powerful blank that feels alive to cast. The Carbon Edition includes a favourite of ours, the woven carbon fibre grip. These grips reduce weight, increase sensitivity dramatically and don’t wear like a cork. They also remain very “grippy” even when wet as the carbon is raw and in its woven state has lots of texture.
The Origin – Carbon Edition also includes a matt black aluminium rod tube that ships and a protective rod sock. We created this model t be as minimalist as possible with black finishes throughout to really focus on the natural appeal of carbon fibre. We assemble these here in South Africa.

Designed and Assembled By Reel Fly Fishing In South Africa
The Origin is set to redefine what a fly rod at this price point can offer, just like our Origin fly reels did when they launched in early 2020.
Looking at the latest technology and applying our new DNA Helical Core blank construction to these rods has yielded a faster, more powerful, and lighter fly rod. The DNA-like structure of our woven SK40T carbon focuses the power and accuracy of the blank into an almost arrow-like nature. This “point and shoot” styled blank makes the Origin exceptionally well suited to fly anglers who like a fast powerful rod.
Using the best components means no compromise across the Origin range. Saltwater friendly from the lightest to the heaviest in the range means peace of mind no matter where you find yourself and your Origin.
Each Origin fly rod features bespoke finishes that are unique to its line weight, meaning you are not buying a fly rod that was simply produced to fill a need but rather thoughtfully crafted to maximize its use.

What Happens When I break A Section Of My Origin?
Simple and straightforward, send us a picture as well as which section you had an accident with and we will drop you the cost price for that section. Why pay for a warranty that you may never use, this was our thinking behind not inflating our rods prices to compensate for this. Only pay for what you use, and only pay when it breaks. Simple, easy, and no fuss. We carry sections on hand and ship immediately.
