I fish this rod a lot in the 10' 4 wt and the 9' 5 wt models. This rod outperforms most $700+ fly rods! It is soft and tippy enough to land a dry fly delicately or Czech nymph but has a lot of power too. The flex on this rod throws a great roll cast! The 10' 4 wt has the power of a 6 wt but the finesse of the 4 wt. I don't fish the 10' 4 wt for dries much on the smaller Utah rivers near me but I hear on bigger rivers it's great for dries. It is the best nymph and streamer rod I have fished though. It has an amazing amount of power, great for light or heavy nymph and streamer rigs. The 9' 5wt is the perfect all around rod. It's plenty powerful enough for nymphing and streamers, but can cast a dry beautifully as well.
I am just getting into fly fishing and picked this up the other week. So far I have been super please with this rod. It was highly recommended by fellow fisherman at Backcountry.com. Look forward to putting it to the test in weeks and months to come. You can go wrong with a Greys XF2 Streamflex.
I purchased this rod (11ft 4wt) for tight-line nymphing and swingin' flies. This rod excels at both and keeps tons of fly line off the surface for those nice drag-free drifts. It casts better than many $600+ fly rods in it's class!
Well worth the $!
Versatile. Presented #20 BWOs with finesse and weighted, double nymph combinations with ease.
