  1. This isn’t a bad rod by any stretch of the imagination, but I just think that the Pure 9 foot 4 weight is a lot better, so that rod gets my stars. The AIR 904 is a touch quicker but doesn’t have the buttery smoothness of the Pure. I would fish this rod with a line that is half a line heavy weight heavy. That extra weight will help bring the blank together through the cast and smooth this rod out. A faster action 9 foot 4 weight is a really hard rod to get perfect and I think this rod comes close, but it’s not as smooth as the Pure 9 foot #4.

  2. This rod had similar characteristics to the 8’6” 3 wt. but without enough of a difference in performance. I’d like to see a bit more backbone in my 4 wt. Although I’m sure this would be an adequate dry fly rod, I’d like my 4 wt. to be able to handle a light nymph rig as well. This rod just didn’t give me great confidence that it could do all I want out of a 4 wt.

  3. Honestly, I don’t care for this rod. The Pure 9’ 4-weight is magnificently balanced, but this one is not. The parts seem out of sync. I have a hard time generating line speed at any distance or with any casting stroke. In my hands, the Air 9’ 4-weight is neither faster nor more powerful than the Pure 9’ 4-weight, which is a finely tuned marvel of fly rod design.
