Verified Buyer Reviewed by Kyle the Fisherman from Toledo, OH on Thursday, April 2, 2015Feels great and provides the perfect 4-weight for a beginner or expert looking for a versatile rod. I would set this outfit up with a 5-weight reel and line because it is on the stiffer side of a 4-weight but quite frankly I love it.
Reviewed by Reno Dan from Reno Nv on Sunday, March 22, 2015If you are looking for a fast action flyrod...steer clear of this one. I had snapped my Albright and Sierra trading post did not have any in (unfortunately). I usually fish 4 wt rods with my Galvan reel and have landed some really nice fish on the Truckee. The Cortland is so slow on response compared to the Albright and it feels like it has NO backbone comparatively. Ive caught some chunky browns and bows on my old rod. Fished this rod the last couple days on stockers, super slow action, unresponsive, and no backbone is how id describe this rod. 5wt might be better but I only use 4wts because i like goin light, fighting big fish. Steer clear of this rod if you like fast action rods and are not a novice. Just my 2cents. You have been for warned.

Reviewed by iamamultitasker from California on Tuesday, January 27, 2015I've read some nice things about these Pro-cast rods and wasn't disappointed. For a 4wt, the rod is a little on the stiffer side possibly closer to a 5wt, but it casts great and a benefit is that it will be able to chuck a heavier rig and won't take forever to land big fish. Just to be clear, the rod is light just that the taper is a bit on the heavy side for a 4wt.
I haven't fished it yet, but can't see any problems.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by DudeCat from MA on Saturday, October 11, 2014Purchased both the 4wt and 10wt rods in the 9ft lengths.
Have not fished with the 10wt yet, but it feels like it has a lot of backbone after playing with it.
Have fished with the 4wt in both wide open still water and narrower flowing stream situations. The flex is on the stiffer side, not my personal preference. The 4wt rod is rigged with 6wt (160 grains) Cortland Precision Shooting Head fly lines in 30ft lengths (in floating, intermediate, and type 3 flavors), also purchased from Sierra Trading Post, and the stiffer flex has worked out very well with the heavier shooting heads. Get a lot of distance in wide open waters, without having to false cast till the arm fall out of the socket. Also works well in smaller water.
For the money paid for both rod & shooting heat lines, it allowed for some experimentation. The result is a pleasantly nice setup that works for my fishing situation. Will be rigging the 10wt rod in a similar way, with 12wt or 13wt shooting heads.
