  1. This rod definitely has some cool factor. It’s crazy short and it carries a pretty big line for its size. This is the shortest graphite rod that we carry at the shop and the shortest 4-weight that we carry as well. It’s a neat tool for the guy that needs the absolute tightest quarter 4-weight for a larger fish that locked away. I couldn’t get this rod to play nicely with me, but I’m a glass man when it comes to sub 7-foot rods. Fish this rod with a Rio Perception to help smooth out the taper and pull George out from behind that rock underneath the willows and behind that tree.

  2. This rod represents a fun idea, but I vastly prefer the Pure 6’6”3-weight and a host of fiberglass fly rods for specialized creek fishing. Whereas the 6’6” 3-weight is well balanced, the 5’9” 4-weight feels too stiff in the butt and mid sections and too light in the tip. Consequently, it’s both stiff and bouncy, an unusual combination. Also, it feels like a “flipping stick” rather than a fly rod. It pops the fly out there, but doesn’t form elegant casting loops at any distance. In my hands, it falls completely apart beyond 25’. Choose the 6’6” 3-weight instead.
