A really nice rod for the price. Shakespeare makes a quality product. This rod "Loads" nicely with only 15 feet of line out.
Had been looking for a compact, lightweight fly rod for small mountain streams when i ran across this item on the website. Decided to take a chance and order it and I couldn't be happier. The rod is very balanced for easy casting. I have let three other anglers try it out and each of them have ordered one. Cant believe they can make a decent fly rod at this price. Works perfect to leave in the car and not have to worry about like you do more expensive rods.
I bought this rod for small panfish. Did not want to spend $300 for this application for panfish. Rod appears to be light graphite (just what I was looking for) and very durable. Tried it in the back 40 and works fine. I have a 4wt reel and WF 4 line and works fine out of water. I plan on using it next month back in the South ponds and streams. Though it is 7 ft, it will do a tolerable roll cast.
All in all, $15 bucks for a Shakespeare fly rod WFLY702 model. It meets my needs. Also, had it shipped from another location to the local Walmart at no additional cost.
This fly rod "too me" is well worth the money. Good for small streams, and hard to back cast spots. A+ Shakespeare
Great price. Decent little rod. Unbeatable for the price
Good for the price. Good action and is a Shakespeare 4wt for people wondering.
I was pleasantly surprised by this rod. I used this to learn fly casting and fell in love. Line shoots out no problem with Cortland 333 line. I grabbed the leader end in one hand and the handle in the other and proceeded to stress test the blank. I had this rod bent like a u no problem! I hauled in some Bluegills and had a blast. Go get it you won't be sorry.
After putting the 2 pieces together for a fitment check, my grip pressure while pulling the tubes back apart crushed the blank flat. Rod went straight in the trash. Obviously a manufacturers defect. Wanted a small stream rod but wont go cheap ever again.
For TIGHT, SMALL Water this rod is PERFECT and very reasonably priced. You are only "Casting" 10 ft. of fly line and your leader--- get REAL. this is PERFECT.
A steal at this price. Great value.
I'm about to order another one!
quality of rod up to par. cant wait to cast a line~
This rod performs very nicely. It's casts and handles fish well. I landed a 17in rainbow trout with mine. Gave one to my buddy for him to start fly fishing. Excellent rod for not much money.
This little fly rod is amazing for the price I paid. For under 20 bucks, you get a really good back up and for the occasional fly fisher, this is the way to go.
7' 4W is as good as a rod costing several hundred dollars...cast s like a dream on small Brook Trout streams... if you crush a tip in the car trunk .it won't have you crying like a baby... :P
Finally had a chance to give this wonderful fly rod a true fishing experience. It casts my 4wt double tapered effortlessly and I am able to present dry flies delicately and on target. I will say that it casts as well if not better than rods costing 20 to 30 times more! Perfect for smaller streams with tight vegetation all around. Had the opportunity to fish it up in the Eastern Sierra Nevadas and locally for smaller largemouth bass. Love this little gem.
Haven't caught anything big yet waiting to see how rod reacts with a big fish.
Would expect to pay more for this rod.
