O.K., so I have never bothered to review ANY product but had to speak up on this one- this is the most incredible value rod I've ever used. I have only put a few hours on it so far, but it's going to be getting a workout ! This thing throws big/heavy flies a country mile BUT also has surprising accuracy. I was reminded of the line velocity developed by 14' 2 handed rods, thats how much authority this rod has. I will be using it in Nicaragua this winter for a couple months and can't wait to see what it can do.

I bought this rod to go with my particular kayak. A Jackson bigrig. It has rod troughs on either side of the kayak to easily store rods up to 9' long. Problem is it is cumbersome to slide a 9' fly rod in there.
So I though a 7'10" fly rod would be perfect. And the rod does fit perfectly in there. Now that just so happens to be the only good thing about this rod.
The rod is cheap. It has cheap components. The alignment dots are already fading away after about 10 uses. The rod is way too stiff #I have a 9wt# I used a WF12 line on it yesterday and it barely loaded the rod. The 2 locking screws #to secure the reel on the reel foot# are cross threading and junk.
I am about to just throw a spinning reel on the dang thing and be done with it.

Great Bass-Carp-Muskie fly rod. Super fast action for big & weighted flies. Super price on rod. There is more bull about fly fishing than a Kansas stock yard. Spend your money on bass taper line instead of rod costing 5 times the price of this one.
