I fish an Orvis Clearwater 8'6" 5 wt that I have had for probably 10 years or so. It has been a good rod for the money. I can't say that I have any complaints with it at all, however their older clearwaters (to me) seem to be made better than their newer models. I have not cast any of their newer models though so I am just going off of looks alone.

perform very well.
