It's completely possible for a soft-loading rod to be both delicate and strong, the type of rod you'd want when you need some backbone but don't want to sacrifice any touch or precision. The Superfine Touch 765-4 is just such a rod. With a strong butt section capable of turning over larger flies and fighting bigger fish, and a Full-Flex action that casts small dries like a dream, it's equally at home on a trout stream as it is a backyard pond filled with panfish and bass. Poppers, hoppers, midges, or streamers, it will cast them all, and let you feel every strike along the way. Made in Manchester, Vermont.

Very Pleased With The Full Flex Rod -
By: RSTC from Medina Ohio
The first thing you notice is the light weight of this fly rod. It loads up nicely and I was pleased with the distance and accuracy of my casts. This rod really adds to the whole casting experience.
My New Favorite -
Two weeks after purchasing this rod I took off for my favorite PA trout stream. I took this rod and my favorite 9' 5wt made by another company. We were to fish the stream for a week and the first morning I started with the 9' rod. It worked well as usual. That afternoon I switched to the new Superfine Touch. I never fished the 9' rod again the rest of the week. The Touch did it all. It was the perfect rod for this stream. I could fish every pool on the stream with it. At the small tree lined pools I could cast very comfortably and hit my target. At the large open pools I could do the same thing and get almost as much distance as with the 9' rod which is a bit uncomfortable in the tree lined pools. Now on my favorite stream the 7'6" 5 wt Touch is my favorite. It is the perfect single rod for the PA streams I fish. On our CO trips I'll take both rods because the 9' excels on bigger water but I'll want the Touch for small to medium water and tighter places. If I could only have one rod I'd go with the Touch. I love it. It casts dry flies, nymphs and up to medium size bead head streamers with the easiest roll casts. If you need a new rod look at this one. You'll never regret it.
Great rod -
I bought this 12 months ago and have put it to a lot of use. It's a beautiful rod. I've got an old Far and Fine; I really was surprised that this casts better. It shines with the small, light stuff and fares well enough with the nymphs and splitshot I normally cast. As long as the wind isn't honking, it's the rod I use. I've gotten into some decent fish with it (half dozen browns/rainbows at 17-20").
Its a lucky rod -

Picked up the Superfine 765 and CFO II reel today around noon in Manchester. As usual, Dale and the guys were at the top of their form. Even offered to hold my Springer Jake while I waggled this full flex beauty. Got a leader/tippet in 5x fluorocarbon and a Coper John and Tungsten Bugger and went a tried it out in Woodstock. Second cast tied up with a nice Brown on the John. The flex is amazing and supple to about 8 inches from the base and felt sturdy. Loads like a dream. Saw the 6 ft 2 weight and birthday is coming up kids :)
Another Superfine WINNER -
By: DaveK from Concord, New Hampshire
I've been an Orvis customer for 51 years and this new Superfine Touch is keeping with the heritage of both Superine and Orvis. I own 4 Superfine Trout Bums, 1 Helios and now the new Touch. It's a beautiful rod in all respects and I enjoy full flex rods over all others. Anyone who is looking for beauty and fine craftsmenship will want to fish this rod. I know that my twin brother, Ken will get one soon, he always does. Thanks to the fishing manager, Dale and associate Bill in the Manchester, Vermont store for their assistance and knowledge.
