    Great road for the price - 11/2/2013

    This is a great rod for the price. I use this for steelhead fishing with a strike indicator. Only suggestion for improvement is the quality of the cork handle. The cork has a lot of defects that are filled with some material that after a while shrinks and falls out making gripping it unpleasant.

    Great Combo - 7/31/2013

    Great combo. Bought for MD stripers and NB Atlantic salmon. Used on 3-day salmon trip... casted very well... no fish hooked so I can't speak to the live action. Had a bad cork handle which Orvis replaced very quickly. Great company... great gear. Thanks Orvis.

    Additional Rod - 7/11/2013

    Now having tried this rod several I have no hesitation to give 9/10 it handles the lines very well and no major effort required putting a good distance of line out, fights a fish and you are completely in control. Being a 4 piece fits nicely in boot or as a spare in the boat, and compliments all my other fishing gear, my only moan is this rod has NO hook eye when not in use.

    So far so good! - 5/16/2013

    Bought this long rod mostly for small mouth fishing from my Outlaw Rampage. It casts about like I expected. Does not bottom out when casting large weighted flies but has a soft tip that allows you to feel the cast. I'm fairly picky about gear but did not want to spend a fortune on this rod. I think I got very good value for the price and I'm quite satisfied.

    No fish caught as yet. But it casts well. Line pick up is a sinch. Back on the river soon!

    Just Keeps Getting Better - 7/27/2012
    By: from Phoenixville, PA

    I updated from my 5 year old Clearwater to this year's model and like the title says...it just keeps getting better. I fished the rod long hours every day for 6 days on the Gaspe area Atlantic salmon rivers, and the rod performed flawlessly, including landing a 12 pounder in about 10 quick minutes. GREAT buy for the money!!!!

    excellent rod - 1/23/2012
    By: from Western PA

    What an excellent rod for the price. I bought this rod as a backup for steelhead. Only had a chance to use it twice so far on the tribs of Lake Erie for Steelhead. It casts great and handles great. The rod preformed excellent landing three 8+ pound Steelheads.
