Great gift -
Beautiful rod, great feel and weight/balance. Heavy enough to use in a decent wind with a good line and fly. You can cast this all day and not wear yourself out. I would recommend this rod to anybody looking to fish redfish and most anything of decent size inshore and rivers.
This Stick is Tuff Stuff! -
By: sneakypete from Cade, La.
Never would have thought a 3-ounce 9-weight stick would have enough umph to handle "reach out and touch someone" casting and 30-inch redfish. Yesterday I learned better on both counts. I think I am going to buy another - two is always better than one!
Better for Salmon -
Traded in 4 piece for this 2 piece. Better for Salmon

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.
