Eagle Claw's Featherlight Fly Rod
A nice rod (especiall at the price) - see this review also http://www.flyfishohio.com/Eagle_Claw_Featherlight_FL300-8.htm

A good rod for 30 bucks
I bought two of these last year. Used them for a while on small back country streams and had a blast with them. They are not fancy or refined. They have a lot of flex and it is harder to get good hooksets. It is also very difficult to get a good distance cast. But, in the 6'-6" size, it is perfect for just real short roll casts on tiny streams. It is also rather versatile in that it has landed fish up to 19inches. They are rather cheaply made. One of them had the reel seat bottom just come off. I superglued it back on and it works, but yea, it's 30 bucks. I gave both of them away to beginning fly fishers and they seem to enjoy the rod.

Can't beat the price.
I just received the 2010 version of the 6' 6" Featherlight. The action has been updated and it is a little faster than the previous model. This is a HUGE improvement. It casts great with a DT 5 weight. Much more line control than the older version. The reel seat has been updated to wood with metal hardware. The finish on the rod is a bit rough (the epoxy used on the butt cap went everywhere, etc) but for $22.00 you cannot beat it. You can't expect perfection for that price. A very functional rod that you won't mind banging up. Perfect for small streams. Very fast shipping from Troutlet.

Great Value
Bought the 6'6" rod to use in my kayak. Could not be more pleased. Paired it with a pflueger 1594 and an Orvis 5wt line. Does very well, even find myself using it from the bank instead of my longer rods at times. Would not hesitate to recommend the product or troutlet to anyone.

Good rod for the money
This is a good small stream rod that won't break the bank. If you are a graphite rod user this little fiberglass rod is much slower and softer. I would say it fishes more like a 3 weight than a 5 weight. I use it mostly on small brushy streams where it truly shines. It lacks the stiffness to punch out line on bigger water.
