This product inspires greatness.
It is sooo sweet. It is a dream to cast, on both still water and streams, with both nymphs and dry flies. This rod has made my 5 weight 9 foot practically redundant.

The balance in the rod is unreal. It is effortless to lift significant amounts of line and cast with utmost precision. It is perfect for those times that you see a fish taking flies from the surface 30-40 feet away from your boat. Paired with a 3M Ultra 3 line, all you have to do is look to where you want the fly to land and presto. Fishing magic.
The aesthetics of the rod shouldn't matter, but lets face it... they do. This rod looks nice in the store - as it should for the price, and absoluteley gleams in the sun. It warrants an equally nice reel. My choice is the 5-weight Ultralite Disk by Hardy Bros.
My only caveat with recommending this rod is that to truly appreciate it, one should at least spend a few seasons with something else. Get the basics down, have a blast with some other really fine products... then treat yourself to a sensual fishing instrument.
Cheers, and tight lines!
