Great thus far -
By: Gannon from Oregon
I ave only used this rod once thus far and I am enjoying it quite a bit. It feels great casting and is quite strong. I got the rod and set-up for steelhead and salmon fishing and plan on netting a few very soon. The cost of the product relative to others for a similar product was very good.
Impressive Rod -

Matched Rod with a Mirage IV. Aesthetics and performance are very important to me. Both the rod and reel easily satisfy my expectations. Can cast the rod all day and throw a ton of line. No doubt about the backbone to land a big fish from the beach.

Great 9wt rod -
Bought this earlier in the summer to fish for stripers and blues: it is very light and nicely balanced, very well made, and pairs well with the Hydros reel. The tip-flex is a pretty stiff rod, but not too stiff, IMHO. Casts streamers well into the wind. I think the Access rods are the best buy in the Orvis line at the moment.

Cast this rod once and you'll question the low price.
Pay more for remarkably lightweight performance? There is no longer a reason. The new Orvis Access™ Rod Series offers true premium-rod, weightless performance at a remarkably accessible price. The carbon-based composite blanks are impregnated with a new epoxy-based resin system with plasticizers for a stronger composite. This is a proprietary new material demonstrating an exceptional strength-to-weight ratio, making these rods even lighter than some higher-priced models. Using proprietary tapers and actions perfected on Helios™ by Orvis rod designers over the past two years, Access rods offer a performance-to-price ratio unheard of in the industry until now. Access rods cast with the same power and precision as the highest-price rods on the market, are just as light if not lighter, and yet come at a price that is accessible to everyone.
