Mystic Reaper Fly Rod

Final proof that price does not always equal value! The Reaper series of rod from Mystic is a true tip-flex fast action rod designed to compete with the best fast action rods on the market. By utilizing modern multi-modulus blank lay ups we were able to create a rod with a very supple tip capable of protecting light tippet while at the same time having immense power through the middle and lower sections of the blank. Like all Mystic rods, the Reaper is true to line size and salt water safe. The end result is a rocket launcher of a rod that redefines what "fast action" should really be all about. This series of rod is offered in line sizes from a delicate 3 weight designed with Brook Trout in mind to a 10 weight powerhouse capable handling trophy class Northern Pike and Muskie.

Mystic Reaper Fly Rod Reviews

Very Pleased with Mystic Reaper Review by Michael
Posted on 2/26/16
Just a great rod for the money. The Mystic Reaper 5 weight exceeds expectations. The rod loads & casts beautifully. I have mine paired with a Nautilus FWX 5/6. If someone handed me the rod blindfolded, I would swear I was casting a $500+ rod. I agree with earlier reviewer's comments about the combination of power and finesse. Very pleased with the purchase. My guess is many will purchase the Reaper as a back-up rod that will quickly become their go to trout catching machine.
Great rod period, especially for the money!! Review by Shain

I couldn't be happier with my newest addition to my 5wt setups. I purchased the Reaper a few weeks ago and I've been on the water with it a couple of times now and wow does this rod impress me more and more every time I handle it. The feel is very light, yet it feels strong like it has plenty of backbone and it loads exceptionally well compared to any rods that I've cast. My first time out I fished it for about 5 hours and hardly felt as though I had made a single cast. The rod has plenty of power for a 5wt - my first fish on it was an 18" rainbow and the rod made it feel like it was half that size and not once while fight that fish did I feel as if my my 5x tippet was in danger. It is a strange feeling when you have enough backbone to fight decent to larger trout but also have the ability to finesse them when necessary with the same rod - I felt as thought I was fishing with a 6wt and a 4wt at the same time. As you might be able to tell, I'm very pleased with this rod!! Mending line while nymphing in long, deep pools was also a breeze and I felt like it took less effort to make precise mends than with my other rods. I'm going on and on about this rod and I almost forgot to mention the fact that it sells for $229 - I would put this rod on par with other rods that are twice its price or more. An exceptional value indeed! I have mine paired with a Waterwork Lamson Litespeed IV size 2 and I couldn't be happier with the feel and balance while casting, mending, and fighting fish.
