Great casting rod -
By: StreamerJon from Kirkland, WA
I typically fish high mountain lakes and streams with my 3wt Superfine Touch and 4wt. Access mid-flex. But, for casting streamers on larger rivers, I was looking for a little extra backbone. My new 9' 6wt 2pc rod certainly fits the bill. It has the stiffness I need for longer casts and chuckin' heavy streamers; yet, it's light enough to cast all day without getting tired. The backbone is there, but, it's supple enough to cast dry flies with surprising control, too. This just might be my new favorite!
The rod for the dollar great buy -
I just finished giving a student a casting lesson using my new Access 9'-0" 6wt , after he casted his rod. He was casting this rod with very little effort an was very pleased with his casting. After owning many rods, I am happy to say I would purchase this rod again

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.
