Smile Re: Light WT Rod?

Hi Ozark,

Bass Pro Shops sells a line of UL flyrods...UL Classic series. They have the all cork reel seat with sliding reel bands...from 5' in 3wt to the 7' in 5wt. All are 3pc and come with a sock and rod tube. I have the 5'8" in 4wt. Mine weighs 1.5 oz...used a digital kitchen scale to weigh it. They run about $120.

Cabelas also sells UL flyrods...the TQR (tight quarters rod) series. Cork reel seats. They run about $120.

I'm thinking about a longer 4wt...the 6'9" model from BPS would be a great rod that won't wear you out! These rods are very light!

Cork reel seats and sliding reel bands make for a very light rod!

I put cork sealer on my UL to keep the cork in great shape.

Cheers,

Robert
