These rods are designed for all around eastern fishing conditions. The rods are 7' 6" and easily cast 5wt DT line with ease. It is a smooth casting rod with lots of power. I have fished many of the larger eastern and midwestern streams successfully with this rod. It is your best bet for a range of fishing conditions. Can make any cast the angler desires with ease and can really throw a line.
This is a good medium - fast rod with a progressive taper that does the work for the caster. It is a favorite of many people who fish the spring creeks around here. I have several variations of this taper for as 3 piece rod and as a 4wt. What more can I say but just a really good rod.
