  1. 896-4 X: One of my 3 favorites in the series, I would place the 896-4 X in the top 20 fly rods I have ever cast. It swings like a 9’ rod and throws even tighter loops, but with 10 feet more distance. Some rods transmit feel in every inch of the tip, but these are rarely 8-weights. The rod casts with the calm of a sleeping tiger, but when the angler gives it a little pop, it might produce the longest cast of your angling career. This is an astounding fly rod.

    Line pairings: SA MPX Amplitude, Rio InTouch Gold, SA Mastery Distance Taper, SA Mastery Steelhead, RIO InTouch Salmon/Steelhead, Rio InTouch Indicator, Rio and SA Bonefish lines, SA Sonar Intermediate Saltwater

  2. This rod was one of my favorite X rods and was one of the best fly rods I’ve ever cast. Line control was supernatural. Line speed, loop shape, stability carrying line through the air, distance, touch, power, accuracy are all things that were running through my mind and casting arm while I had this thing in my hand. A stunning rod to cast. For a rod of this line weight and length it remained supple and light in the hand and had this unreal feeling in the tip that carried into the loop. Distance was comical. The rod easily carried 75 feet of line in the air and could shoot line from 30 – 90 feet on command. Take notice of this fly rod, there is something timeless and special about this stick.
