Always keen to keep pushing the boundaries of fishing rod advances, Free Spirit have been developing a new blank that will provide something special and stand the test of time. After 18 months of exhaustive testing, they have discovered a new carbon material that impressed with both its performance and reliability. This new material enables Free Spirit to build very strong slim blanks, yet with very efficient recovery. The ‘S’ Lite has been born. These rods are capable of extreme ranges as in testing they were casting huge distances, testament to the loading response and fast recovery this material lends to the blanks. The slimness of the blank helps with this but the carbon has to be high quality not to feel tip heavy.

As with all Free Spirit rods the finish is cosmetically attractive and different and the weave is quite stunning and as usual features the exclusive ‘Perdurable’ finish. To compliment the 40T low resin ultra slim blank is a new Fuji reel seat (VSS17) which features open sides and a fitted carbon sleeve of the same material as the blank to help transmission through the seat to the hand.

Guides feature black frame since the blank has a dark finish and all fitting are stainless steel for durability.

For the full cork version Free Spirit have developed a clone real seat with isotope slot from C626 carbon as this was cosmetically more appealing when fitted with ‘A’ grade cork both sides.

A word about the casting versions of the ‘S’ Lite range – Free Spirit have used the ‘Ive’ name for both the 12’ and 13’ rods which they don’t do lightly! The performance was so close to that of the Hi – ‘S’ives, which have become top sellers and offers great casting but with exceptional fish playing – ‘SI’ives offer very similar performance at a significantly reduced price.

Frequently Asked Questions

What comes in the box?

Included with every FishSpy purchase is the FishSpy camera itself, a USB lead, one orange fin, one Foamy, one boom and the instruction and warranty information.

How long does the battery last?

The battery will last 4 hours, streaming live video to your portable device whilst recording the footage at the same time.

How much footage can I record?

FishSpy has a built in hard disk that will hold up to 7 hours of video. The video can be transferred to any other device by a USB lead. Videos stored on FishSpy itself can be managed/ deleted via the FishSpy app or control screen.

Do I need an Internet or phone signal for FishSpy to work?

How deep can FishSpy be submerged?

It's guaranteed to perform at depths of up to 10m.

Will FishSpy transmit via Wi-Fi when fully submerged?

No - once submerged, FisySpy will lose its wifi connection to your device (wi-fi signals cannot be transmitted through water).

N.B. Your recording will continue whilst FishSpy is submerged, and will be ready for you to view when you re-connect FishSpy to your device once it's resurfaced.

It weighs 90 grams so about the same weight as a large marker float.

What warranty is provided?

For complete peace of mind all FishSpy cameras are supplied with a 12 month warranty against manufacturing faults or defects. As you would expect this warranty excludes any accidental damage including but not limited to (water ingress through failing to lock the cap correctly, excessive force when tightening the locking ring, impact damage with a hard surface such as a rock or tree) or through natural wear and tear. Please follow the instructions and take care of your FishSpy and accessories because we cannot accept responsibility from incidental or consequential damages caused by the misuse of the FishSpy products or the accessories.
