Default Ross Flystik

I bought one of these rods in a 6w a couple of months ago and while I have not had a chance to fish it yet I have cast it in the yard. It is quite powerfull and has a "slingshot" type of action to it, I think I like it. I bought it for Crappi, Bass and for throwing larger streamers to trout. Anyway, it seems like a nice rod for about 170 bucks.

Good call! I have 6wt and 8wt of Flystik.

6wt with floating line for trout in lake's shallow, panfish, and light saltwater.
I abused it for a full year and now it's in repair. Tip broke when fighting char without any precaution when I took it out in icy cold weather.

8wt with floating line for bass and seabass which is really nice short rod to have in windy condition or casting tightly off structure. Never tried it on shallow reef or mangrove yet, but I imagine it will make good scene.

The length of 7'11'' helps casting in windy day, and the best of all, life time warranty for a rod this price is hard to come by.
