Really nice rod, quite light and quite the rocket at shooting line. Performs well at shorter distances too. I was surprised at the quality of the finish - better than I would have expected for the price.

Rod feels great I am getting back into fly fishing after a long sabbatical. I have a 5wbvk and an 8wbvk I have landed decent sized fish on both rods and I am amazed and how much I can feel the fish fighting. The cast is slowly coming back to me but I know this rod is forgiving so when I open my wrist sometimes I can still recover the cast.

This is my second TFO flyrod and I love it. The 8 wt. BVK does everything that was advertised. It easily handled Pike up to 30" and Smallmouth up to 18" in the weeds. Can't wait to try it on Redfish in the near future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WhitetailLakeBum Best Fly Rod Ever!!
WOW!! I am very impressed with the BVK! I purchased the 10' 5 weight, It casts like a dream, even in the wind, effortlessly tossing large leaders(18-20 ft) with precision and finesse!! My first two casts with this rod netted me with two beautiful 8 pound rainbows!! definatly worth the buy!! Thank you TFO and Lefty Krey!!!

I just bought a BVK without the recoil guides as that is all they carried in the store. The newer rods have the recoil guides, it appears and for whatever reason the stores don't carry them. The regular guides work fine though. Every other rod in the store also had regular guides.
No. I don't think any of the TFO rods come with cases. It comes with a sleeve, and I usually buy a Bass pro White River hard case with a reel pocket. They are pretty inexpensive and more durable than most factory rod cases.
Yes, but remember, these rods are quite fast action. I have used a 5 weight 10' and it worked well. There are other rods that would do this better, but you can' t beat the quality you get for the price with the BVK. The 4 weight will give you a little more flex so you can bend with the fish a little better.
