    Power and Smoothness

    The 8WT, 9' rod has great power and smoothness. I also realy like the fee of the grip and the finish of the blank. You can tell there paid a lot of attention to detail. Just a great rod.


    Nice rod

    The 8WT is a very nice rod that could easily cast with accuracy, within bonefish range.



    Cast the 890 Bonefish Rod, it had good power and great smoothness. I really liked the feel of the grip. Nice Finish!

    Great Eight Weight

    Good grip, better quality, high performance, and promise of long-term use are the attributes that describe this Bonefish eight weight rod. I have been using this rod in all my bonefishing trips for over 3 years and I should say that it’s still “new” today. The ergonomic grip allows me to practice casting again and again… untiringly and the lightweight 9-ft rod perfectly matches with the weight-forward fly line to generate strong deliveries. I can really cast the bonefish flies to the desired spots and the reel’s drag allows me to combat the larger fighters. The price is worth the performance and I would strongly recommend the gear to all those who are yet to experience the true joy of bonefishing with the right rod.


    Solid Rod

    Went bonefishing for the first time with a buddy of mine. I needed a bigger fly rod than my trout rods, so I did some reasearch online to find a bonefish fly rod. I bumped into this Red Truck. Never heard of them before, so I poked around online and found some good reviews. I fished this #8 rod on my bonefish trip and it worked like a champ. Had plenty of power for longer casts, but wasn't stiff in any way. I've also been using this rod for striped bass and it does the job well.
