Can't say enough about the product and fantastic customer service at Diamondback!!
i received my 10’ 3wt yesterday,took it out to cast on the lake to try it fell in love.can’t wait to get on the river. we just had tons of rain. Ryan from five weight outdoors recommended the rod to me glad i met him on the river.anyone want to by a recon.
I was fortunate to be fishing with a guide buddy in central PA over the past couple of days and when we quickly realized I could not feel strikes on my euro rod (soon to be on ebay), he let me use his 10'10 2wt ideal nymph rod. We caught 50 fish, yes 50 over the past two days. I could feel the most subtle takes and being new to euro nymphing, I still missed a bunch of them when I didn't set fast enough but I still felt them. It was literally love at first cast/catch. The rod flips the line effortlessly and can handle fish of many different sizes from smaller to over 20 inches. I ended up battling a 22-25" golden that broke the tippet just before hitting the net. Because I fell in love with the rod, I had to order one for myself so it will be heading my way shortly and I absolutely could not be more stoked! Feel like a kid on christmas! Can't wait to get out on the water with it. Thanks to Brady Hawkins for sharing the magic of diamondback rods and for being my go to guide in Central PA and beyond!
Great Nymphing rod for smaller streams but has enough backbone to handle larger fish. Accuracy and sensitivity are off the charts…especially with a thin micro leader. I love this rod. You won’t find anything better in this price range!!
Absolutely love it. Caught over 5 fish on it yesterday all over 20 inches and it worked amazing.
