Superfine Glass 3-weight 7' Fly Rod

Present the fly with finesse with this 3-weight fiberglass fly rod.


Get ready to change the way you feel. We've applied modern Orvis taper design principles to a classic rod-building material to produce a 3-weight fiberglass fly rod that's smooth and slow, yet crisp and strong. The Superfine® Glass throws dry flies with a balanced touch and will even sling streamers when necessary. With unsanded S-2 fiberglass blanks, uplocking cork and silver reel seats, and a hard chrome Litewire stripping guide, no details were spared in the making of this soon-to-be classic. Proudly made in Manchester, Vermont.

    Great Action - 11/27/2015
    By: from Maumelle, AR, USA

    I purchased this rod for fishing a smaller local stream that my 9' 5wt Recon was too large for. This rod has a fantastic, predictable, and effortless action. Two things that stand out to me are the single reel binding nut and the fiberglass storage tube, both so meticulously built and classy. I find myself wanting to fish this 3wt Superfine even when I should be using my 5wt Recon.

    Superb Small Stream Fly Rod... - 8/11/2015
    By: from Northeast Tennessee

    I have both the Superfine Carbon and the Glass. Both rods give me the small stream experience I want and need. They cast beautifully and even short roll casts are not a problem. Excellent form, fit and function. My clients love these rods and several have purchased their own. Congrats to Orvis!

    Great Blue Line Trout Rod - 8/4/2015
    By: from Stony Creek PA

    Great little rod to pack into those distant blue line wild trout streams. Glass is a nice steady slow action which I have missed in recent carbon years. Really enjoy casting and the good thump of a wild trout. Highly recommend for those blue line trout bums like me.

    Nice Rod But Not For Me - 7/23/2015
    By: from Hernando FL

    I give this rod five stars for quality of workmanship. Now having said that, I returned my recent purchase. I've always fished tip and mid flex fly rods. I found the full flex of this rod to "whippy" for my liking. Again, nothing wrong with the rod; I just prefer a stiffer cast.

    Great fly rod - 7/18/2015

    I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this rod to anyone looking for a small stream rod. Great feel and timing, it allows to to actually "place" a fly on the water after about 30 mins of practice to learn the rod. Keep your leaders somewhat short and this rod will reward you with an unbelievable presentation. After a few days of fishing this rod I went home and ordered the 5 wt version. Well done Orvis

    Sublime... - 7/8/2015
    By: from SC

    I've been using this rod for a few months now on everything from fat farm pond bluegills to native brookies and it has far exceeded my expectations. The Superfine glass is an utter joy to fish. Dropping a dry fly on target with stunning accuracy and the softest presentation is what the superfine is all about.But I find it easily handles small nymph rigs and panfish poppers as well. I find myself daydreaming where this rod will take me next!

    Well worth the money - 7/1/2015
    By: from Plymouth MA

    This rod is an excellent rod for small streams, still water with chironomids, very small streamers. Little 5-7 inch brook trout put a good bend in the rod. I was fishing a little stream a couple of days ago and it layed down dry flies like a dream, did not spook the salters (sea run brook trout) that were in there. I'm going to try it out for some striped bass ( yes I know it might seem a little crazy going after striped bass with a 3 wt). It casted quite well with a #6 clouser, but I'm not going to win any awards for distance. Overall this is a great rod, I would recommend this to anyone. Well worth the money.

    Amazing Rod - 5/21/2015
    By: from Albuquerque, NM

    The action on the 703 Superfine Glass is awesome....can't believe I went this long without fishing glass. This rod is perfect for the small streams of Northern New Mexico.

    nice small-water rod - 5/20/2015
    By: from Central PA

    This rod provided a softer, full-flex performance and a shorter length that was effective and fun in smaller water situations. I like it. It gave good control and allowed accurate casts. I was also surprised that it handled larger fish (17" trout) just fine. Only downside I noted which was pretty minor was that I had to pay attention to thoroughly tighten the nut that holds the reel or it would come loose while I was fishing.

    Favorite fly rod - 4/3/2015
    By: from Santa Fe N. M.

    My wife got me the superfine glass rod in three weight for christmas. We went to the San Juan in January and i landed two 18" rainbows on this rod. That was unbelievable fun. This is now my favorite rod to cast. I did have to slow my rythm down, but it is very accurate & easy to cast. No regrets on this one.
