Highly advanced, perfectly tuned fly rods at an unbeatable price—virtually unheard-of, but that’s exactly what you get.

Fast-action tips assure effortless casting at any distance; the rich translucent olive blank is fitted with indestructible REC Recoil stripping guides and ultralight chromium-impregnated stainless snake guides. Braided carbon fiber reel seat; flor-grade contoured grip; meticulously designed by Lefty Kreh and Flip Pallot. Manufacturer's lifetime warranty.
Rated 5 out of 5 by squidmotion best sub $500 fly rod ever
Lefty, you sure did your homework on this one!
tried one of these a while back, and had to have one... picked one up an 8wt a few days ago... if you are looking for superb fly rod.. better than some rods costing twice as much... then look no further.
seriously... i doubt i will ever spend over $700 on a fly rod again... for less than the cost of a sage rod, you can buy two BVKs!
if i had to complain, i would have liked to have seen better cork used on this rod, instead of the fancy reel seat...

A more expensive fly rod from another manufacturer will not cast any better!!! This is an Amasing fly rod this unit casts as good as any $850-$1150 fly rod and it is a bargain, TFO really did there homework on this fly rod series, short and long distance casting and roll casting are all easly performed by this BVK 7WT , I own a signature TFO in a 7 WT and that was when I discovered what excellent fly rods TFO builds, and when the BVK came out it was time to take the plunge and get a more expensive fly rod, to say that I am exstatic about this BVK 7 WT is an understatement!

I recently bought a 7wt and it throws a 250gr line with authority into a stiff breeze. I like the fit and finish for the price, but I'm getting tired of buying rod tubes for my TFOs! I also own a 4wt Finesse, 5wt BVK, and 8wt Teeny. I started this collection as backup rods to the ones I have in storage elsewhere, but I'm very impressed with both the Finesse and BVK series.

I got the 8wt 3wt rod for my B-day and it is hands down the best casting rod I've ever owned.

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.
