This rod is a real bargain. It's quite stiff which gives it a lot of power! Perfect with SA GPX lines, due to mentioned stiffness. Works great on medium to long distance. very light in hand, and quite a nice finish. Good warranty!
Don't forget to buy a hard case with the rod though, comes in a cloth bag!
5 stars for performance and value i even better, but - erratic build quality and not being a true 5 wt rod gives it 4 stars. Comment to build quality - my 5wt rod is perfect, but one of my other BVKs is irregular in the guides.
