    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Apex fly rod I recently purchased a 9ft 6wt Apex Fly Rod. I am very happy with the rod’s performance, it feels very similar to my 6wt Douglas Sky. I would recommend this rod to anyone looking for a great deal on a high quality, light, fast 6wt. A very helpful representative actually weighed a 6wt for me before my purchase, it came in at 3.1 oz which is really light for a 6wt. Well done LL Bean!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good In all honesty I have not actually used the rod yet. But comparing it to my may other rods at this point the feel of it is great. I bought this rod to take with me to Alaska the first week of August. I will be trying it out in the river where I live before that and can let you know more when I do that. Thank you.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LL Bean Apex Rod & Reel I purchased the LL Bean Apex rod and reel with line and backing in a 9 foot 9 weight recently for targeting Striped Bass, Bonito, Bonefish and False Albacore. I was shopping for a lifetime, top of the line combination and called the Freeport store for advice. It was imperative that the choice cover all aspects of salt water applications. Prior to this purchase I tried all of the top of the line rods from several well known highly rated companies. Sage, Thomas & Thomas, and G Loomis just to name a few. But the price was too steep. The gentleman at the store in Freeport who was VERY polite and knowledgeable had most of these excellent brands in inventory. Including Hatch, Tibor, Nautilus and a few other brands of sealed drag saltwater bar stock reels, but the sticker price was way too steep for my wallet. He recommended his top of the line Apex Rod and Reel. I was rather hesitant until it arrived in the mail. When I opened the box and observed the contents, I was blown away by the quality! The cork grip and fighting butt were the best quality I have seen. The action in hand? Perfect. Now time for the ultimate test. I chose an estuary that was loaded with striped bass chowing down for their migration. The Apex rod is a canon! No problem casting an intermediate line 60-80 feet with a light double haul standing knee deep in the out going current with a stripping basket. Ok. Casts great but how well does it fish? The stripers were not huge but I was able to bring them all to hand in a hurry for a careful release. The Apex #4 reel operated flawlessly and balanced perfectly with the Apex nine weight fly rod. I highly recommend this outfit! Very light in hand but plenty of power in the lower section. It casts and fishes as well, if not better than many other brands and that all said and done, are three times the price of this rod, reel and top shelf fly line. I am a casting instructor for the LL Bean Outdoor Discovery Program in CT and will proudly showcase this outfit during instruction.
