Get ready to change the way you feel. We've applied modern Orvis taper design principles to a classic rod-building material to produce a 4-weight fiberglass fly rod that's smooth and slow, yet crisp and strong. The Superfine® Glass throws dry flies with a balanced touch and will even sling streamers when necessary. With unsanded S-2 fiberglass blanks, uplocking cork and silver reel seats, and a hard chrome Litewire stripping guide, no details were spared in the making of this soon-to-be classic. Proudly made in Manchester, Vermont.

    Follow up to prior review - 12/7/2014

    As an add on to prior comments, this little rod can handle big fish. This morning caught a pretty rainbow measuring just over 21" on this rod with 6x tippet. Fishing a #16 holy grail behind a bead head brassie with an indicator. Rod did a great job protecting the light tippet and was a blast to play a fish of that size. It does have reasonable limitations; doesn't like much wind, doesn't like split shot; but that's really not what it was intended for. What fun rod for great presentations on small water but capable of fighting a 3 lb fish.

    Surprisingly versatile & a blast to fish - 11/30/2014
    By: from Asheville, NC

    What a great little rod! Loads easily & makes delicate presentations w/ ease. Obviously well suited to dries in close but versatile enough to fish a small tandem nymph rig w/ indicator or small cone head bugger. Unbeatable out to 30'-40' which is 95% of my fishing (WNC small streams, blue lines, delayed harvest & TN smokies). Worth more than what I paid. Lots of fun to fish!

    This rod is a beauty. I have fished it many ways this past 6 months. The casting is awesome. The rod throws line further than anticipated. It also held up to very large rainbow. I will most likely buy the 5wt some time in the near future.

    Phenomenal - 8/25/2014

    Just returned form a week in Montana/Wyoming fishing everything from Paradise Valley spring creeks to Yellowstone back country pocket water. I took 3 rods on this trip and everyday found myself reaching for my 4wt., Superfine Glass with DT Hydros line on a CFO II reel. This rod exceeded my expectations which were pretty high and was a true joy to catch fish ranging from 6" brookies to 18" cutthroats. It is now my go to rod for medium to small water. An absolute home run. Well done...

    gotta balance this with the right reel - 6/5/2014
    By: from Chattanooga,Tn

    I really like slower action rods for small to medium sized streams, and this rod fills that role beautifully. Ordinarily, I reach for bamboo in such situations, but I had always wanted to try glass. I am delighted that Orvis made that possible. So here's the skinny -- this rod has a great, understated finish, which is perfect for small stream fishing. It has a nice, soft action so you can really feel your cast in close. One suggestion, and it is not intended as a criticism -- find a slightly heavier reel for this rod than you might think that you need, maybe something in the 4 ounce range. The rod feels a little tip heavy, which I think is appropriate and even necessary for close range work, but you will want more weight in the reel to balance it at your index finger, which is where I prefer the swing to be. I think this rod and I will meet many trout this season.

    Best Full Flex Glass Rod! - 6/4/2014
    By: from Pittsburgh, PA

    I purchased this rod for my father after he got done telling me that Orvis was making glass rods again. He was excited. He loves the rod after a week and has caught approximately 100 trout on it. I recommend this to anyone who appreciates a full flex rod. He said it roll casts like a dream.

    Slow Clap - 5/27/2014
    By:

    You can't break this rod, and yet it's extremely sensitive and you can feel every movement of a fish. It's action is slow and graceful, yet completely practical in length and effectiveness for the majority of fly fisherman, because they are on smaller streams. You don't need a 9' high composite rod, you need a 7'6" delicate presentation rod. The Orvis shop by me sells them out when they get shipments. Try one... you'll buy one.
