Fishicous
Baffled   (from prior model)
Pros: shoots line great
Cons: Noon
Best Uses: Trout and Striper
Comments: 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.

How would RS865.2 fly rod match with The Plueger Automatic Fly Reel?

As the the Plueger Automatic Fly Reel is designed as a 7/8wt reel, it would not match up too well with this size rod, we feel that it would be too heavy and oversized for it. We would recommend that you take a look at some of the other reels in a 5wt sizing.
