Again good rod but sounds a bit overpriced. Orvis Access a step up from the Clearwater just went on sale for $300 today. You can get an additional 20% off dropping that to $ 240 if you donate an old rod to a kids program they're sponsoring.
The Access will drop more than an ounce off the 3 7/16 oz weight of the Flight ( my 9 wt clearwater is just barely heavier than that) and comes with a 25 year warranty to repair or replace for any reason. Also money back guarantee so if you don't like it they'll refund the price at your request during that 25 years. Orvis does stand up to their warranty. They replaced a lost section once ( don't ask how I lost it
) and gave me a full refund once when after 2 years a rod didn't live up to my full expectations.
Men think that they own the water they use. You might as well claim [the] air.... to say that you own the water.
