I bought this rod last year as a loaner for when my buddies want to go fishing. I figured at *** it was fine if it was a below average rod. Man was I surprised when we starting fishing! It cast like a dream, was forgiving to the new guy, and stood up to some pretty stout trout. I have a whole bag full of rods, some that cost over $1000, and I use this rod as often (or more often) as any rod in my bag. Bought the 9 foot 5 weight, but planning to get the 3 weight for myself with Christmas money.
Bonus? The rod tube and sleeve are great quality, and something I didn't expect to have included at this price.

Bought this rod in the 3 wt 6'-5" size to use a a small stream rod for wild brookies. I was very surprised at the quality and feel of a rod of this price, as well as the quality of the case and rod sock.
The rod has a good medium to fast-medium flex, and I chose to upweight to a DT-4-F line, mostly to allow me to load the rod more at the shorter distances I would be casting. It performs superbly, allowing effortless, precise casts. The short length is much appreciating when bushwhacking through along some tiny streams.
I am seriously considering ordering the 9', 5wt as well even though there is nothing wrong with my current 6wt... and so the hobby goes.
This rod is a steal at this price and I am completely satisfied with my purchase.
