When i first bought this fly rod i was skeptical. I've used it at the Smokey Mts. and many rivers in Michigan. It is light and inexpensive rod that works great. I am no longer skeptical. This is the best starter rod you can have!

    This rod was purchased as a backup for my 3 wt for small stream fishing and backpack fishing. I like the fact that it is a nine foot rod, I'm not a big fan of shorter rods in most cases. 8'6" rods aren't much shorter, so why bother. The rod is a nicely constructed and feels light in the hand. I will say it is a little stouter than a 4 wt, never the less it throws a 4 wt line nicely and will probably over line to a 5 wt without a problem. Thanks Sierra Trading Post... This was a "steal of a deal"

    Powell rods are typically a stiff action. On this 4 weight rod, I use a 4 1/2 weight line. The heavier line w/the lighter rod evens out the stiff action very nicely...I also have a Powell 7 weight. I do the same thing...7 1/2 weight line. Casts like a dream!

    I purchased the rod for my son. He's been fly-fishing for several years and has out grown his beginner outfit. This rod is light-years ahead of his old rod. It is much easier to cast and cast far. I hope he doesn't take it to school in the fall so I can fish with it!

    I received this new rod as a birthday gift, to replace an old-stiff fly rod. I'm excited that this summer I will be able to try on our local streams and maybe keep up with my husband. My husband thinks this fly rod is even better than his!
