I've used all ranges of fly rods from Cheap to very expensive. This particular one is my favorite. This is the second one the I have purchased. The only problem that I had with the first one, is that it is not very durable when it got ran over by several cars.

Rated 4 out of 5 by chipnator Very Long Rod
I liked the balance and action of this rod. It hands well, even in wind. I had a whole day with no wind snags or tangles. I would like to say that it is because of my technique but that would be a lie. It handled everything well. I was able to use it with reletive ease. the only downside witht his two peice rod was the length when tacken apart, still over 4'. A little difficult to get into and out of smaller cars. But action was great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WVUFlyFisher Great so far
I recently bought this rod in 7'6" 4wt 4 piece to use on some of the smaller native trout streams in southern WV. I chose the 7'6" because I usually fish on smaller streams with a lot of canopy covering them.
I have only tried this once so far, for about an hour on a larger stream (I was eager to use it and stopped there on my way home from work one evening), Even on the larger stream, I was able to easily reach the other side with ease. The lightweight design made casting very comfortable and the crisp action really let me punch through the wind and place my fly accurately and cleanly on the water.
And the rod is beautiful.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Trying Won't load the rod
Even though I'm fairly new at Flyfishing I have used several different rods from friends. From Sage to Bluelight specials however I wish I would have tried this first. I'm watching the line forget feel and it still doesn't load. Buyers remorse is all I can say
