The Rio Santos rod was rated best under $200 last year in a very promonent fly fishing magazine. I bought the 6wt at that time and had been very pleased with it. I bought a 8 wt and was happy with that also,

I have tested a lot of rods and have already some big name rods. I use the Rio Santos rods becuse I am amazed at how they cast all around.. Recently I purchased a 5wt two peice and noticed that the two peice cast 5 to 7 feet farther then the other 4 peice rods that I have.

I would recommed Rio Santos rods because of their 5 star performance. I have to say that after trying a lot of rods in this price range that I am still baffled how this rod continues to perform like $400 to $500 dollar rod. Thisis one of those rare instances where you get way more the you pay for.


Pros: shoots line great

Cons: Noon

Best Uses: Trout and Striper

This is a great med fast fly rod. It was rated top by several fly fishing magazines in the under $200

category. It is as good or better then more expensive rods. If your preference is for med fast action

then pick this fly rod up.

Cons: small rod wells

Best Uses: What do think
