I am a beginner spey fisherman so keep that in mind when using this review. The rod seems a little stiff and I broke the first one on the second time out. STP responded quickly without any hassles and I had a replacement in less than a week. I have had it out two more times and all seems well. I do believe once I get better at casting it will prove to be a great rod for my level. Still trying for that first steelhead on a fly!

I've wanted a spey rod since I bagan Steelheading but they are generally too expensive for me. This is a great rod at a great price. My friend who taught me to spey cast uses a top shelf rod but casts just as well with mine. I can use massive weighted intruders and T-14 sink tip and still launch across the river. Its all about distance.

This is a great rod for spey fishing. It is good for beginners because it is fast and is forgiving. Not a high-end rod, but a workhorse, it is fun to cast and works for both summer and winter applications. It can throw heavy tips and flies, as well as dries.
