    Orvis Clearwater 10 ft 7 wt

    For sale.

    Used.

    No warranty.

    I love this rod, but it is tip heavy. I feel like my wrist could snap in two with each backcast.

    I hate to part with this one.

    But you will love this great steelhead rod.

    Guaranteed by Beetle.

    That's a good rod, even though it's on the heavy side, it has a good back bone for steelhead.

    That's your personal forum, no?

    Or your blog?

    No the blog is a separate space on this site. How much for the fly rod. I have someone in Europe who may want to buy it. He like to fish the ohio river. It's his favorite stream

    Re: Orvis Clearwater 10 ft 7 wt

    Don't be alarmed by the lack of warranty. I snapped my 8 wt. Orvis Clearwater in Pulaski about 3 weeks ago and they are fixing it for free ( I pay for shipping). It was an older rod that I bought on ebay-- a 2 piece...either way, if you are nice about it--there's a chance they'll fix it... (technically the warranty only belongs to the first owner....)

    All Orvis Rods come with a 25 year warrantee. I t does not matter who the owner is.

    GB I do not know how that can be any heaver than some of those bamboos you have. I haven't used a graphite that I can not cast comfortably all day. With my bamboo . My arm starts to become tired after a few hours. My shoulder starts to roll forward as I cast to compensate for the fatigue . That causes a control issue with the cast. I don't see how a graphite rod could be doing what you claiming. It is probably the caster not the rod.

    Boo rods can be heavy. But any slower action rod won't have the swing weight of the tip heavy and stiff Clearwater.

    A few more casts with this rod, and I'll need rotator cuff surgery.

    But you'll love the rod regardless.

    I hate to part with it, but I need money for a new boo rod from Italy.

    I thought you bought a rod from Massimo already. Hmm something seems fishy

    I'm best known for casting one of Massimo's rods at Somerset this past January.

    Don't own one yet.

    In any event do you have a price for the 7wt rod yet. My friend from Norway is interested
