    The rod feels great with a light to medium action,and seems to be of very good quality especially for the price. I have a much more expensive G-Loomis that I would rather not break while packing in, however this rod seems to have a similar action at 1/3 the price. I weighed the rod and case in at 14.8 ounces so at under a pound it will be a nice pole to hike in. I am not a pro caster by any stretch, but this rod seems to make the cast smooth and my distance and accuracy is good with it.
    I feel like I can give a good review after owning this for about 7 months. I have used this rod 4 times now, and 3 of them were backpack in trips.
    The rod performs very well and even though it is a 7 section rod, it maintains its action. It seemed to cast fine into moderate wind and although it was OK in hard wind I would have preferred my 4 section Loomis. OR, it could be my less than stellar casting technique.

    The packable size is fantastic and could even fit inside most packs even though I attach to the loops outside my pack. This last trip was a great trip into the Rio Grande just below Taos. The hike was great, and the rod worked flawlessly and landed several great trout.

    The price is right, and the performance is good. The customer service is excellent. I would recommend this product to anyone who wants a reasonable priced, backpacking Fly rod. Since purchasing this rod I purchased two more smaller 2/3 weight 3 and 4 piece rods from Maxcatch® and they work equally as well. These lighter and shorter rods do not pack as small as the 7 piece 5wt, but for backcountry streams and smaller rivers they are fantastic options.

    I had one minor issue with a rod but it was quickly resolved by Maxcatch® when emailed via Amazon. They have very good customer service. They are a Chinese based company so if that bothers you take a look at where most rods are made. These are NOT $200-$300 rods but they perform very well. Looking at this as nothing but a backpacking or traveler rod I like it a lot. I'm the guy in yellow and you can see how packable the rod is because you can barely see it compared to the case my buddy is carrying.
