I went to a flyfishing show a couple years ago with no intention of buying another fly rod. I have "enough" very high-end fly, spinning, and casting rods. I figured that I'd give a Diamondback 6 wt SW Flex a try. I ended up buying it. If I had this rod 40 years ago, I never would have gotten into spinning or casting. The quality is incredible for the price. I am very pleased with this product and company (also great warranty).
I purchased this rod on black friday at a great discount (thanks)! When i received it it was of the best quality. Rod is different but is very comfortable in the hand and performs great! I would recommend trying this rod even though it is out of the ordinary, you wont be disappointed!
Very good reel for money .you do not want a reel you feel on the rod , light makes casting a breeze. No case just a pouch the only down side. From Scotland.
This is a really nice rod. When I first saw this rod I thought, "This is different". And having used it a couple of times I still think so. In spite of having "Fast" printed on the blank it is a far cry from an unresponsive, useless broomstick. It is sensitive, bends deeply into the handle, loads up weel and releases the power in an elegant and smooth manner, yet with sufficient brawn. The swing weight feels light, and I feel confident when casting tight loops into the wind. The handle has been easy to get used to, and I hardly notice the different feeling in the hand anymore. Instead I enjoy the benefits of it: The blank working more freely, good grip with wet and/or slimy hands, and the absense of the cork creaking when put under stress as is often the case with massive handles. I can safely say that I recommend this rod.
