Details

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 4-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.

    Fantastic Rod - 7/25/2015
    By: from Cheltenham UK

    Desperate to try my new rod I ventured out in torrential rain and a stiff breeze, to fish the Gloucestershire Coln, last night. It is perfect: responsive, delicate and accurate. The headwind - no problem! It landed 6 wild trout from 0.5 to 3.5lb and felt 'right' for small and large fish alike. I think I've struck gold here - it is PERFECT for these Cotswold streams. Thank you Tom Rosenbauer for selling me this through your podcast!

    Outstanding! - 7/3/2015

    An amazing rod. Casts like a dream and roll casts better than any rod I have ever used. Feels longer than it is, has good "backbone", and transmits the feel of the fish like bamboo. A bargain at the price.

    Guys, bought this rod from Uttings couple weeks ago. Just after two days trip to Welsh Dee can agree, this rod outstanding for dry flies, fly line like a kiss a water surface. Very soft and slow, vintage, easy cast 20-25 meters. If you like fishing on surface with small and medium dry flies, this rod it's the best!!!!

    New favorite! - 6/12/2015
    By: from Virginia

    I ordered the Superfine Glass after growing tired of modern fast action rods that took away the element of relaxation from my fly fishing trips. This rod has a slow, smooth, and crisp action that literally brings a smile to my face. Where my other rods jerked around and slung flies at the water, my superfine flexes and lofts flies right to were I am aiming. I couldn't be happier with this purchase.

    The Only Glass You'll Need - 6/3/2015
    By: from Austin, TX

    Full flex. Full feel. Pound for pound, this is the best fiberglass rod out there in this price range, backed by the industry's best warranty and customer service. Fishing the small waters here in Austin is awesome with the superfine glass. Roll casting is extremely easy in tight spaces and the ability to switch from using dry flies to double nymph rigs without a drop in performance seems effortless. The panfish and bass here crush nymphs on the drift and even with the smallest fish you feel the fight with this rod. If you can stand to relax and slow your casting rhythm, this fly rod will reward you with perfect loops and realistic presentation. It definitely has been a pleasure.

    This rod just feels wonderful in the hand. I cant wait to catch my first trout of the season on it, matched with my Hardy made CFO 111 reel.

    A New Classic - 1/12/2015

    You guys in R&D really outdid yourselves this time. I've loved this rod since I had the chance to cast a prototype. One of my favorite older rods is an early-70s Orvis Full-flex fiberglass rod -- a real joy to cast and to fish with -- and you've captured the classical features of that vintage glass rod. I love the cork reel seat, the brushed aluminum hardware, and the unsanded finish. But I have to confess that, as much as I love the action of the older rod, the Superfine Glass is a far superior casting instrument. I pair both of them with a CFO reel (American or English, your choice), and a Superfine line. Nice work, guys; sweetest stick on the market.
