  1. The Session 1005-4 is a very well made 10 foot 5 weight in this category. Like the 1004, I was impressed by the casting profile compared to previous models. The 1005 is the better caster of the two and it feels more like a trout rod and a little less like a purely technical nymphing rod. A Rio Gold was a good match and the rod/line combination rewarded patience. Don’t hurry your cast with this longer blank. This rod is a hair more sensitive to power applications than the 955 and doesn’t respond well to an overly aggressive stroke or a cast that is out of sync regarding the forward cast and the back cast. You do get the sense of having more time in the air and that inherent confidence with the line behind you allows you a bit of time to self-regulate during the cast. Think more reach with this rod as opposed to more power. The 955 has a bit more power and responds better to a more aggressive stroke. Big river nymphing under an indicator is a great home for this rod as well as stillwater chironomid-style fishing under indicators or with full sink lines. There is plenty of easy flex to perform single hand Spey casts inside your shadow as well. This is a solid choice for the angler looking to add a 10 foot 5 weight to their quiver.

  2. This is a great nymphing rod for big rivers and anyone’s favorite stillwater. It handles heavier flies better than the 1004/4 and has a bit more power for bigger water. Just like any longer rod, it pays to slow your stroke down and wait for the rod to tell you what to do next. It is a very smooth overhead caster and forms a surprisingly tight loop at distance. This rod will roll cast across big rivers very well and is a great mending rod. I played around with the Rio Gold on the 1005/4 and liked it a lot, I also wouldn’t be afraid of fishing the SA Infinity on it either.

  3. This rod is more stout than the Session 1004-4, but not as stable or powerful as the Session 955-4. The extra length will be useful for certain applications, however, including technical lake fishing and high stick nymphing. The rod casts with adequate stability (often an issue with 10’ trout rods), preferring a long casting stroke with a long-headed fly line, such as the SA Infinity Taper. If you do a lot of nymphing in rivers that require deep wading, roll casting and stack mending, this is a useful rod. Due to its length, it swings heavier than the 955-4, so we recommend this model for anglers who specifically need that extra length.
