Product Review (submitted on September 15, 2013):
I have the 5wt 9' for the past 2 years. This rod is a joy to cast. Accurate and easy for close and powerful for distance casts. Great strength for hauling in bigger fish, although while on a favorite river in British Columbia I hooked on to a couple of bruisers and decided to go out and buy the 6wt with fighting butt for my next trip there.
