Re: orvis trident tls mid flex 6.5 5wt 8.5'
Sweet, nice rod.
Unfortunately, I'm infinitely satisfied with my Orvis HLS 5wt.. Worse still if even thinking of gifting it, the new (used for maybe 1 hour, spent time changine lines) Orvis HLS Silver "Powerhouse Special" 8wt., 9'-0", 7.0 mid flex I would never offer in trade because it is absolute junk (even the Orvis reps agreed). For being a 7.0 flex it has the spine of an earthworm and the muscle of a skeleton. Literally EVERY cast from numerous lines just collapse.......I don't need the karma that comes with even giving it away.
That said, I'll pass along to a few folks I know that desperately need a rod and keep fighting it.
