  • Orvis Hydros Large Arbor Fly Reel Review

    Posted on January 30, 2015 by Ben F

    By now you know that we like Orvis products. The high-end Mirage did very well in our 8-weight reel shootout, but we've never tested any of Orvis' value-oriented reels, and we wanted to see if they did as well as their top-of-the-line counterparts. The Orvis Hydros Large Arbor has a lot to live up to. → Read More

  • Sage Domain Fly Reel Review

    Posted on January 20, 2015 by Ben F

    Sage has marketed its new Sage Domain as "Marrying tradition with advanced design." It's a full cage reel with a large arbor and modern looks. So, who cares? Full cage reels have a few advantages - they're stronger and they don't let line 'slip through' the reel. It's great for thin running lines and spey casting, but how does it work for trout? Read on to find out. → Read More

  • Hardy DD Fly Reel Review

    Posted on January 20, 2015 by Ben F

    Hardy has been building fly reels for nearly a century. Reels like the Hardy Perfect defined what a fly reel should be for generations. Over the years Hardy has changed ownership a few times and they've come out with some great new products, like the Hardy Zenith. Certainly Hardy's most talked about trout reel release in many years is the Hardy DD. It's got a sleek modern design, and has won many awards. Dive in and see if its performance stands up. → Read More

  • Cheeky Ambush 375 Fly Reel Review

    Posted on January 19, 2015 by Ben F

    When we test the Cheeky Mojo in our 8-weight Shootout, it was one of the first reviews of a Cheeky reel. Its bright colors reflected its performance and guides across the globe now have them in their boats. Since the Mojo did really well the first time around, we wanted to check and see how it's smaller brother would do as a trout reel. → Read More

  • Orvis Access Mid-Arbor Fly Reel Review - Best Buy

    Posted on January 17, 2015 by Ben F

    The Orvis Mirage is one of our favorite reels, so we know the engineers at Orvis run a tight ship. But can they live up to that reputation on a budget-friendly reel? e haven't tested any of Orvis' value-oriented reels, and we wanted to see if they did as well as their top-of-the-line counterparts. How does the Orvis Access Mid-Arbor measure up? → Read More

  • Scott Tidal Fly Rod Review

    Posted on January 8, 2015 by Ben F

    2014 was not the most exciting year for fly rods. Sure, Sage released the new Salt (which we also reviewed here), but there were no other releases of marquee rods, and nothing that made me rethink my quiver. The three major releases that happened were in the value space – the Tidal, the Nexus, and the Accel (sort of). All three rods define a price-point made in the USA rod for the masses, which is something that we’ve been saying needed to happen for a while now. While I really liked the Nexus, the most game changing of the trio, in my mind, is the Scott Tidal. → Read More

  • Sage Accel Fly Rod Review

    Posted on July 29, 2014 by Ben F

    Sage’s 2nd most popular rod introduction for 2015 is the all new Accel. The Accel replaces the VXP in Sage’s lineup and is built with Gen 5 technology, just like the old, but still popular, Z-Axis. It’s also green, like the Z-Axis. Since this is the year of re-packaged rods (check out our review on the Winston Nexus), is the Accel a re-packaged Z-Axis?

    We got to try the 590-4 Sage Accel at iCast and decide for ourselves. → Read More

  • Winston Nexus Fly Rod Review

    Posted on July 27, 2014 by Ben F

    One of the most intriguing new rods for 2015 is the Winston Nexus. Winston discontinued all of their overseas-made rods this year, which included the very popular Passport and VSL, and replaced them with a made-in-the-USA rod at a very attractive price.

    We got a chance to cast the 9’ 5-weight Nexus this year at iCast. → Read More

  • Sage Salt Fly Rod Review

    Posted on July 21, 2014 by Ben F

    The new Sage SALT Fly Rod is, of course, Sage’s latest and greatest. It replaces the still-good-in-its-own-right, Xi3. It’s always a tall order to replace a rod that people like. Luckily, Jerry Siem had something to fall back on – Konnetic Technology. What is it? Probably some new resin, but I’m no material scientist. What I do know is that it’s produced some pretty great rods so far.

    Calling a fly rod “Salt” is bold. Read on to see if it lives up to it. → Read More
