Great rod for the money paid. I suggest buying one line wt lighter than you want to use it for. I purchased a 6wt as sort of a do it all to avoid carrying multiple rods on the river. This rod can chuck huge streamers as well as deliver dry smaller dries and nymph rigs pretty nice. I would also HIGHLY suggest overlining this rod. I use a 7wt gpx (which is rated a half size heavy) and a shooting line (which I believe is 2 line sizes heavier) for streamers. So if you buy a 5, use 6-7 wt line. Great rod for my purpose. I'd imagine it'd be great for saltwater although I use it only for fresh.
