    Default Received my 9', 5wt BVK today

    Didn't get to check it out till after dark ,,and in the house. Tip has good action, stiffer butt and mid section than my mid flex and slow action rods I'm used to. I see this being a bit faster and casting farther than any current rod I own. I was shooting for a rod to use on the small lakes from the bank and in my kayak. I think,,,at least I'm hoping, that this rod will fit the bill. Will let ya'll know after I cast it...might even get to fish it on New River this weekend for small-mouth. I will say,,for the money, it has excellent craftsmanship.

    I think you'll love the rod! I have that exact same rod and think its the bees-knees. Find the sweet spot and you'll be able to rocket line with it.
