  1. Fenwick AETOS Fly Rod Review

    Fenwick AETOS Fly Rod Review
    Fenwick Fly Rods are steeped in tradition dating back to fiberglass rods in the 1950s. Perhaps your father or grandfather fished a Fenwick fiberglass rod in the middle part of the 20th century. Fenwick turned to graphite like many other rod companies in the 1970s and have continued crafting top-notch rods since. One such rod is the Fenwick AETOS, a low-priced rod built for functionality and purpose. Does the AETOS pay homage to the Fenwick tradition while continuing to drive contemporary fly rod innovation? We think so. Read on to find out why.
  2. Loop Cross S1 MC/MF Fly Rod Review

    Loop Cross S1 MC/MF Fly Rod Review
    Maybe you’ve heard of the Loop brand, maybe you haven’t. Loop is a huge tackle company that dominates mostly European markets. Their presence is becoming more and more popular in the U.S., and their new fly rod, the Cross S1, is a large reason why. This rod comes in two different rod actions. We cast the MC/MF version (Mid Curve/ Medium Fast) and enjoyed it a lot. This is a phenomenal trout rod from Loop and we’re very excited about it. Read on to find out why.
  3. Redington Vice Fly Rod Review

    Redington Vice Fly Rod Review
    Redington has come out with a ‘transitional fly rod’; the Redington Vice is a fly rod you go to when fly fishing starts to become a lifestyle and not just a hobby. Appropriately named, the Vice leads anglers away from casual engagement and toward fly fishing addiction. Redington combines a fast-action blank with classic componentry to present an affordable, do-it-all fly rod series. We cast this rod at ICast and we’re pretty excited about it.

  4. Winston Pure Fly Rod Review

    Winston Pure Fly Rod Review
    The new Winston Pure light line series is marketed as a rod for anglers who prefer to fish with a light touch. The Pure enters the fly rod market at a time when many anglers prefer fast action rods with tons of power. This graphite rod series from Winston is designed to slow things down on the water and refocus an angler’s attention on presentation and slow action performance. While the Pure does its job well, it has some surprising unmarketed abilities, too. Read on to find out why we were pleasantly impressed with the new series from Winston.
  5. Winston Saltwater Air Fly Rod Review

In fact, the Salt Air won Best New Product for 2018 at EFTTEX, the European Fishing Tackle Trade Exhibition. Does Winston’s new rod series live up to all the hype? We think so. Read on to find out why.
  6. Mystic Reaper X Fly Rod Review

    Mystic Reaper X Fly Rod Review
    Familiar with the Mystic Reaper? Well, it has been replaced by the Reaper X, a lighter, improved, and slightly faster version of Mystic’s do-it-all freshwater Reaper. The Mystic Reaper X is yet another solid mid-priced rod option and continues the Mystic tradition of value-packed fly rods. Halloween is right around the corner, after all, and while the Reaper X may not win a prize for best costume, it may be one of the best at its price-point at tricking and treating your freshwater prey.

  7. Redington Crux Fly Rod Review

    Redington Crux Fly Rod Review
    Redington has replaced their flagship series, The Vapen, with the all-new Redington Crux. This rod boasts high-performance technology, loads of feel and feedback, and surprising power and strength. While the Vapen was a fast action rod, the Crux slows things down a bit without sacrificing power. While the rod is a definite upgrade from Redington rods in the past, the Crux remains affordable at the classic Redington mid-price-point. We think this could be the best all-around trout rod ever offered by Redington. Read on to find out why.
