I have a White River CV2 9' 8wt 5-pc fly rod. This is my second one. The first one broke while landing a good sized rainbow trout. I had trouble at the store returning it. They said I had a one yr free replacement on that item. It took me an hr to get it because they said i had to pay a difference in price sincethey didn't have a direct replacement. So I finally got it done. Went fishing yesterday and broke that one while trying to land a 10" rainbow. I have pics for the proof. I do not recomend purchasing iny of the White River rods. Im takin this one back and I'm going to have them change it out for a different brand. I will never own another one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nicolasfrion Its a very nice rod to my opinion
This rod is actually a very good rod, I have had my 7wt since the beginning of the trout season and I've gotten a lot of beautiful steelheads on it and its been holding up very well against them. I have also caught a bunch of suckers on it and still had no problem. I paired it up with a Hobbs Creek Large Arbor Fly Reel. I truly think that even with all the bad reviews this rod has on its shoulders its still by far my favorite rod.

I bought my little guy a White River Hobbs Creek 8' 4wt and we had lots of fun with it until it snapped at the tip while retrieving about a 14" fish. We took it back and asked for a beefer rod... this is when I got him a Classic 8' 4wt. We took it out for the FIRST time and were having a great time catching lots of the 8"-10" brookies when it snapped just below the middle joint while casting!!! I took it back and had no problem returning. I then asked for a rod that wasn't too expensive, but included a Lifetime warrenty. We got a TFO for $149. Spend the extra for the piece of mind! My experience with the White River Rods has unfortunitely not been very good!

Mine broke in in 5 years! I was casting it and it broke 6in from the handle. My friend broke his too just casting it. His broke where the two peaces connect.
I just got the Redington SR4 it is wonderful. Its a lifetime warranty.
Spend the extra $50 and get a better fly rod
