- Simply the Best Review by TenaciousP
The rod is so light. It has a fast action. It really has a ton of casting and fighting power. Its hard to believe because the rod just feels so light. This spring I landed many steelies ranging from creek chrome to 30". So far the rod seems durable (and you have Orvis to back it up.)
My primary use is swinging small to medium water with no tip or MOW light tips. I have also nymphed with it. It's just great. Keep in mind its a switch rod... If you want a switch, look no farther.
