An okay rod, here's why... -

The 4 piece rods cast way better. The travel rods are for people that must have short rod tubes. If you don't need ultra portability there are better 4 piece Orvis rods to choose from.
Superb Rod -

I've had my FF for about 2 years now. Beautiful 7 pieces of graphite stuck together. Silky smooth and fits snug into a very, very nice Orvis case which has section compartments. Class. I have other 7 piece 'travel' rods, but will only use the Orvis. Light enough for presenting dries and also chunky enough to throw some dirty (i.e. 2 nymphs and split) gear if needed. Landed many (20+ in.) large Bows and Brownies in Austria on this beauty. Not a hick-up. Well done Orvis!
Good value for your money -

Bought a 3wt a couple of weeks ago. The rod is not as smooth as the more expensive Orvis rods but for the money spent, a very good deal. The cork quality of the handle is perhaps not the best but for this price I would recommend the rod. Casts well enough and is a dream to pack. If you are looking for a rod that takes no place at all, chose this! You could place rod, reel and a box of flies in your glove compartment.
Great travel rod!! -

I own a couple of other rods and this one is one of the best. The rod snug nicely in my bag. After work, I would go for a quick end of hard days work for a relaxing fresh water fishing. Heading home big smiles. The rod is very responsive and durable. I recommend this rod to everyone...
Fantastic travel Rod!!! -
Was little skeptical at first, but became a believer after landing several brook trout on a narrow mountain stream in VA. It’s so smooth that I couldn’t tell at times that it was a 7 piece rod. It’s small enough to pack in a backpack for hiking up to hard to reach streams in the mountain. Highly recommend it!!!!
Great Balance -
Purchased my 3 wt. in Boston and just tried it out on the Carson river in Calif. It had great balance and sensitivity. One of my best purchases!
