Access 4-weight 9' Fly Rod—Tip Flex

Cast with power and precision with our new fast action 9' 5-weight Access rod.


2⅜ oz. 9', 4-piece, Tip -Flex Fly Rod for 4-wt. line.

Anglers love the 904 for a number of reasons, but versatility stands at the top. The Access Tip-Flex version of the 904-4 offers the delicacy of the four-weight line with the length and power to fish any large stream or river in the world. As with the Access 904-4 Mid Flex, the Tip Flex is built with our proprietary tapers and actions developed on Helios by our rod designers and the proof is in the casting. If you're looking for that perfect big water trout rod with premium rod performance at an unbelievable price, cast both the Mid and Tip Flex and you'll surely find the rod that fits you perfectly. The fly rod size of choice particularly for dry-fly fishing medium-sized to large rivers.

    I have had an Access 9 foot 4 weight tip flex for 2 seasons and it is a great rod. I use it for primarily trout on larger river or creeks in the Adriondacks and western NY. Has a little added reach over an 8 foot rod and is nice and light. Paired with a Hydros 1 reel it is my main trout fishing system.

    What a deal! - 5/19/2011
    By: from Boulder, CO

    I recently bought a 4wt, 9' Access and couldn't be happier with it. I have used Sage rods in the past and this gives me most of the performance for half the price. Other than some finishing details, like the reel seat, you really lose very little when dropping down to this price-point. I haven't seen anything that comes close to this in terms of value and would recommend it to anyone that doesn't want to spend $700+ on a new twig.

    LUV the ACCESS - 1/16/2011
    By: from Fayetteville, Arkansas

    I recently used my new ACCESS rod and was extremely please with how well it cast. Very light in the hand with wonderful action. It was my first time casting a Tip Flex rod and I could not be happier. I cast farther with less effort than with any of my previous rods even when using flies that were a little large to be casting with a 4 wt.

Access Fly Rods

Cast this rod once and you'll question the low price.
Cast it twice and you won't fish without it.

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.

Access rods feature:

  • New material with remarkable strength-to-weight ratio.
  • Lighter than most premium rods.
  • Remarkably smooth and precise casting stroke.
  • Root beer blank and woven-graphite carbon and champagne anodized aluminum gold reel seat.
  • All chrome guides.
  • Sunburst wraps with gold tipping.
  • Gold ferrule alignment dots.
  • Saltwater reel seat with cork-and-rubber butt.
