I just got one a few weeks ago before I ran up to Alaska. I got one of them fly rods. I really put it to the test. We hooked it up to the down rigger and with the fly reel I caught salmon on it. And then up in the bays fly fishing I caught tons of chums and pinks on it. So I know the rods hold up. I like how its light weight and you can feel more and cast better with it.
Next chance I get I'm picking up another.
