    VF-5-LW is a perfect balance for my Sage SP 590. Light weight, yet extremely durable. Drag is very intuitive and you are not limited to preset increments. Superior product.

    I bought a 7LW and an 8HD from the guys here at ChiFly and they are absolutely incredible. The 7wt is so light it feels like it could be a 5wt but has enough drag. The 8wt is a powerhouse, nuff said. Thanks guys!
