An all around good nymphing rod. Took the 6 weight, I built, in high water conditions and it performed well. Protected 5x tippett on a wild brown well over 20". For the price a well performing rod. The only improvement I would reccomend, is a stronger butt section. I think it would improve this rod's streamer throwing capabilities. Which is a must with any 6 weight in my opinion.
What a blank! What a rod! I got both the 6'6" and 8' #5. Both rods are perfect in terms of how much they bend yet how much power they still have. I started out with glass way back and I thought going back to glass may be more romantic than anything. That's not the case. These are my goto rods now for trout in small to medium size rivers and stillwaters.
