Although I've delved into fly fishing many years ago I would consider myself relatively new to fly fishing altogether so take this review as you will. While searching for a decent fly rod and reel I found that this SLV rod paired with the SLV reel is about the most affordable rod and reel combo out there (if you don't count the cheapie Walmart special combos, which was not what I was looking for). However I've always been a super great fan of Okuma rods, I have several SST series spinning rods and I love them for the value. There are certainly better rods out there for sure but what you get for the money you pay is really good so I decided to purchase the SLV fly rod because of my faith in Okuma, plus all the positive reviews I've read. I really don't have anything negative to say. The quality of the rod seems pretty good, made with quality components and such - just as I expected. As far as the performance I would say that I'm quite satisfied. This rod allows me to do everything that I need and/or want to do: overhead casting, single-handed spey casting, mending...paired with the SLV fly reel spooled with Wulff Ambush Triangle Taper flyline, I can do all these very well with this rod. Again I'm a beginner so I don't have the advantage of comparing this rod with higher quality rods, but it is serving me quite well for what I bought it for.
