I recently picked 11' 2/3wt. (four piece) carbon fiber trout spey rod kit from a website I found stumbling around the net one evening as a kit with blank, handle, reel seat, guides and sock. Wasn’t really expecting much and didn’t want to go into the fast current so to speak with a expensive blank as I’m not sure if this is what I want. I already have a Meiser 10’6” 3/4 switch rod but what the heck, needed something to do during the hot dog days of summer. Instead of standing out in the triple digit temps I chose to sit inside a wrap up another rod. Well I have to admit after trying this rod out with a 175gr OPST integrated line and a mono tip it cast so smooth and with very little effort, I really like casting it even with size 16 dries, it feels surprisingly easy to use. The quality of the components are very good and for the price of 165 for the kit I’d highly recommend it. I don’t know if they are a sponsor so if you’d like more info send me a pm if this is allowed or if not mods can delete this post if they wish to. I liked it so much I felt I had to tell others.
