áby pigopotomus Time's Fun When You're Having Flies
I ordered the 4-wt. combo, and it worked like a dream during my 5-week trout fishing trip to northern New Mexico. The weight of the rod belies its strength, and the reel is balanced to make fishing effortless. The line cast with ease. I appreciate the two product specialists who assisted me with this purchase. The Double L 4-piece fly combo held up during near-daily fishing for five weeks. It looks as good as new, too. One thing that appealed to me the most about this outfit is the replacement guarantee. L. L. Bean would have overnighted a piece to me had the rod broken during my trip. You can't beat the product for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5áby fishinlaw 8' 6" 5 wt. Double L outfit, 4 pc. with tube
I have used this as one of my two "go to" fly rod outfits since purchasing it in March 2014, and find it to be an excellent combination of rod and reel at a terrific price. The rod is supple, strong, and lets you know what the fish is doing. It has a nice fit and finish and seems to be very well constructed. The reel is smooth with easily adjusted drag and good holding power. The outfit includes top quality line and leader, plus 20-lb. backer and a very nice sock and tube. Compared to the prior version Double L 9' 5 wt, this rod is a little faster and smoother to cast, although you might give up a little distance. Overall, this is an excellent outfit and highly recommended.
