User benefits of the Zpey handle
In order to generate the same momentum as that
of a traditional rod, the arms must be moved further away from
the body in the direction of the cast, especially during the
cast. The farther away from the body a person moves their arms
and the rod, the greater the strain imposed on the body.
Unfortunately, the human body was not built for the
combination of long movements and excess strain. Every year,
this combination results in large numbers of fly fishers
suffering from chronic strain injuries to their arms,
shoulders, backs, etc. The Zpey handle will help counter this
1. The upper hand can be held
closer to the body, thereby becoming a more toned down and
effective partner for the bottom hand.
2. The curved handle allows the fisherman to
hold the rod closer to his body; to cast in a more upright
position and maintain better balance, while reducing the risk
of injury due to chronic strain.
3. Using a tilted cast, we can further
increase the pathway of momentum all the way down to the lower
hand so that the hand can then be pulled in closer to the side
of the body.
Zpey rod vs. ordinary rod
The protruding position of the bottom hand provides greater
transfer of casting momentum, regardless of the cast style.
The bottom 10 centimetres of the handle adds between 60 and
100 centimetres (depending on the length of the rod) of
increased range to the rod tip.
The Zpey handle enables the arms to be held closer to the body
without affecting the range, thus allowing the user to cast
just as long, while using less power and shorter movements, as
well as significantly reducing strain on the body.

The Zpey handle
The handle has not only undergone aesthetic
changes, it also contains a wealth of design technology.
We have created a grip design that provides better cast
control, as well as always allowing the user to “feel” the
direction his cast is going in. This provides the sportsman
with distinct advantages both during precision casting and
Inserted in the lower part of the handle is a flexible
constructed from carbon and polyurethane, it increases tension
along the entire rod using calculated flexibility in the
The flexible section provides increased feeling both in the
rod itself and during casting, as well as transferring
additional momentum to the fly line.
You will find that catching fish will feel better than ever.
Plus, the fly reel is placed in an ideal position and is also
easier to control.
The handle is comprised of a cast mixture of cork and rubber
for an incredible grip, even in the pouring rain.
