Orvis Zero Gravity 795-4pc Mid Flex 6.5, 7-9 Long (2 7/8oz) 5wt Fly Rod w/ Tube. In general, Im more concerned with the way a rod performs than the way it looks, but I have to say, the Orvis Zero Gravity-series are beautiful rods. The reel-seat sports a beautiful, light hue Tiger Maple insert. The cork is perfect and feels great in the hand.
The blank is a nice deep red, the stripping guide is silicone carbide and the snakes hard chrome. The guides are wrapped with a thread matching the blank colour, and varnished to ORVIS perfection. This rod loads easy which makes casting heavy flies short and medium distances easy, and almost pleasant. The deep flex is a real pleasure when fighting fish.When lengthening the line, the flex becomes even deeper, though without ever feeling that the rod gives in under load. Reasons for getting a shorter fly rod. Accuracy: It's easier to be more accurate with a shorter rod. This rod is simply easier to control and be more pinpoint with.
While it robs you of some distance, the accuracy at closer ranges is often worth the trade off. Fishing in Tight Quarters: Great for fishing tiny brush-choked trout streams. From making tight roll casts to simply maneuvering through and around all that foliage, this rod is less of a headache.
Easier Portability: Compared to a 9-foot rod (31 inches long and 3 inches diameter), this rod fits into luggage, into a cramped car or overhead bin EASIER. That tiny difference can be huge! The case is 25.75 inches long and 2.5 inches in diameter. Snappier/Crisper: This rod is noticeably crisper when flexed/cast.Shortening the rod means less material, lighter weight, and a more responsive blank. It just feels good when you cast it. Leverage: For battles with deep-water pelagics and other big fish, short fly rods provide more power and leverage for applying serious pressure during the fight. If what you have hooked wants to turn and go down into some structures that will break your tippet, THIS ROD can turn them and bring them to you.
