I have recently purchased the Ross Reach Spey Rod. I chose the 13′ in a 7 wt. paired with a Ross Momentum reel. I very excited about this choice and will let you know what I think. The rod comes with a lifetime warranty and has had great reviews. Even the Steelhead Snobs from out West give love and praise for the Ross reach rod. Any of you Spey casting Junkies out there feel free to post a comment or review on this set up.
The Reach spey rod series was designed with the help of an underground group of soulful spey junkies that eat, sleep and breathe big water, big fish and two-handed rods. Our goal was very simple – produce a series of spey rods that will handle a full range of fly line types and successfully execute all types of spey and Skagit casts. Mission accomplished! This 4-piece, fast action rod series is made from our proprietary R4 graphite design, resulting in a series that is lightweight, powerful and precise. The rods load deep into the core, allowing for a fast action design that still maintains casting sensitivity and tremendous line control. This lightweight rod series is easily cast by anglers of all skill levels. Once you have experienced the sensitivity, responsiveness and performance of this series, you will be left wondering why it doesn’t cost twice as much. Hey, a spey junky still has to eat, right?
The Reach spey rod series comes with the following standard features:
Ross proprietary R4 graphite design
Fast action rod taper, perfect for all types of spey and Skagit casts
