Any experience with Okuma rods? The SLV looks like a good deal, with good reviews and ratings. Also, I found a lesser known Okuma rod for an even lower price that has great reviews as well - the Celilo. Tackle Tour
gave a full out review on it paired with an Okuma Integrity reel and it scored an 8.91/10. It can be found on Overstock
for as little as 42.49 and is considered a very beefy, strong rod that can tackle large fish and punch large flies effectively. Just wondering since I have been looking for a new budget rod. If you have any other inexpensive fly rods in mind, please let me know.
