Most definitely! I wouldn't trade mine for anything.

Actually I did not end up getting the rod, got to thinking about it after I put it on lay away and decided that I really did not need it, luckily they let me out of it.
I really did like the way it cast though, and with the warrantee you can't go too wrong.

I have a 5wt and it is the ONLY rod (graphite) I now own! It replaced all of the other Orvis rods I've collected over the years!

It is light and smooth. Just awesome!

They really are one of the finest rods I have ever casted. A real joy to own and fish.

I have a 4 wt mid flex 8.0, and I just purchased an 8 wt tip flex 9.5 that I am picking up on 3/26 and taking it to the marsh south of New Orleans on 3/28. I made the decision after casting one on a trip to Lake Fork last week with Rob Woodruff.
