T.F.O. Lefty Kreh Signature Series II - Preseason Review.
After spending my Christmas money and using a coupon, this rod only cost me $7. I must say, after casting it in my yard, I immediately noticed the quality and uniqueness of this T.F.O. fly rod. I haven't cast any flies with it but in one afternoon of practice casting, I became very attracted to this rod.
This rod has a lifetime warranty. I like the half wells grip which is smaller in diameter to other grips I've used. The rod also has oversized stripping guides, and an anodized aluminum reel seat that matches my WR2 reel. The medium-fast action fly rod has will provide great presentation and the distance is amazing but I am worried about casting heavy flies - but if I can cast flies with XXL tungsten barbell eyes, I'm sure this rod will do just fine. The rod seems to load itself and casting seems effortless. I've been using rigid GLoomis rods - sheesh. What a difference!
I'll give a more thorough product review as the year goes on. I've got to patch my waders now.
