We just returned from Patagonia where we landed wild, chrome sea run browns to 20lb and steelhead of equal size. We used everything from 8 weight spey outfits down to 3 weight trout rods. The lightweight View & Flex balanced our choices perfectly.

Both the View and Flex reels were faultless. We had the same confidence with these low cost systems as we would with reels 4-5 times the cost. Using low diameter Dacron we never felt low on backing and we knew the backing couldn't sneak in between the spool and frame.

  • Close tolerances, thin running lines won't jam between the frame and spool.
  • Strong drag and smooth mechanism. 
  • Lightweight for light rods.
  • Solid light alloy construction.
  • Click check sound that isn't too loud, just the right volume and pitch. 
  • Click check sounds on incoming / outgoing line for accurate fish tracking.
  • Maintenance free rulon disc drag.
  • Low start up inertia protects light tippets.

8' #4 Clout (fast)

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.

Meeker Glass Blank

Silent and smooth

Love this reel. For the bucks, this is probably the best reel I own. the drag is smooth. I dont know what they put in it but it's as smooth as my Lamsons and Abels. I got it as a backup reel but it's never left my Lake rod since.

Seriously good fun

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.

Exceptional Rod for the Price.

Purchased the 7' 6" 3wt option version of this rod for fishing small brush lined streams and creeks with limited backcast room. The View has proven to be an excellent buy for the price, it casts well, is very sensitive, and has proven capable of handling fish well. If all of Diamondback's rods are of this quality or better then you can't possibly go wrong, why spend twice as much or more for a rod of the same caliber?
