Thanks for all of your responses, I really appreciate it. You have been a great help. And yes my head is spinning with all these choices. I would really like to test these rods out, as some one mentioned above. French Creek outfitters is the closest place to me. I will have to stop in there and see if that is possible. Now all I have to do is find a reel, and pick out a good all aroud fly line for nymphing in cold water and dry flies in warm water... lol

Just got an email from L Bean about a 20% off sale on fishing gear. Short window, but you might want to check it out.

The Risen ITB is solid (Although a little heavy for dries IMO). You should also check out the Echo Carbon. I just picked up a 3 wt and LOVE IT.

Send me an email and I can set you up with a great deal on one of our 9ft 5wts.

We even offer demos.

If your interested in the lightest 9ft 5wts on the market with extra tip sections and lifetime warranties for under $250.00 email

info@shadowflyfishing.com

I want to thank everyone on the forum for suggesting our rods. I can not wait till more fisherman get these rods in hand. I truly feel they are one of the best values in fly fishing right now. Just need more time being we are new.

If anyone swings by Volant to do some fishing stop into the shop and ask bob to cast them.

On another note, we are working on our PA made fly reel right now. As well as some other projects made here at home. Can not wait to get these other game changing products out.

Thanks guys!

Hi ... just registered about 2 minutes ago. I saw this thread and wanted to suggest you log in to yellowstoneangler.com and browse their field test section. They conducted what appears to be a rather thorough 5wt comparison. Many rods mentioned here are ranked in their test. Good luck ...

I just picked up an Orvis Clearwater 9' 5wt today for $189.00 plus tax. I already had a 7'6" 3wt Clearwater that I got back in January and for some reason, I ended up in the fly shop today and walked out with a new one to replace a cheapo rod I got a few years ago for $5.00. It's served me well, but I figured I'd get a new one someday... I guess today was the day.

Anyway, one of the things I liked about the Clearwater the best is the 25 year Orvis warranty.
