-Jay Smith II 2/2

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Just purchased 3 rods; 3wt 7’6”, 5wt 10’ , and a 3wt Euro. As it’s February in PA I’m looking for a weather opportunity to fish these rods, I can’t give you an accurate review on their performance. But, what I can tell you is buying experience was easy and satisfying. The rods are definitely of caliber that you would  expect to pay a premium for. Like I said I bought 3 rods for what I would have paid for one. I don’t have a problem with paying for what I believe to be quality. What I do have a problem with is  overpaying. The rest of fly world better take heed, Outlaw just exposed you.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐  Amazing customer service , received my rods within 4 days of ordering ! 8wt 9ft wanted and the 7wt 11ft switch . Both rods really impressed me even with fishing in -13 C . Can’t wait to for my next order !!!
-Mark Patterson 2/7 (Australia)
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ My rod that was sent to me in Australia went missing in transit , Anthony helped me by sending another rod to me to enjoy the fun of fly fishing . The service I received from outlaw company was excellent and much appreciated the help I received from Anthony. The rod looks great can’t wait to use it when go to snowy mountains later in year chasing trout and salmon . I match my outlaw 6 wt rod up with a Remington Behemoth reel
-Mark Ambrozic 2/24
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐  This is by far the best rod that I own.  I have a Wright McGill Granger Special Fly Rod 8 1/2' that I use.  This provide the exact function to match that I have been looking for, and I would have to say that it is hard to match an old high quality bamboo fly rod. I will also be purchasing the 5wt version very soon.
 thank you
-Ron McCain 3/3

-Jeff Curran  4/20
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐  Today I was able to get out.  I only had 30 minutes but can say it cast amazing. Hooked up on a few carp that broke off.  This 10ft 3wt has awesome backbone.  But got a few rainbows.
Jason  4/30
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐  Upper North Fork of the Shoshone River.  Got lucky with warm weather, a semi-clear day, and fishing that falls within my top three of all time.  Thanks Anthony Saling and Outlaw Rod Co for the hardworking and dependable 6wt.
John Betar  5/21
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ I took a chance and bought a 10' 3 weight euro nymphing off the internet from Outlaw Rod Company.  Best purchase I've made!!! Last Tuesday, I committed to euro nymphing using the Outlaw Rod all day.  Once I understood the dynamics of using the sighter, I had the most successful day trout fishing in a long time.  The Outlaw Rod was responsive, bites were easy to read and the rod handled several trout over 20" flawlessly!!! I will buy another Outlaw Rod in the near future.
Dean Tanner 6/23
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Hey Anthony Dean Tanner first time I've got to use the wanted 6wt . Love the rod cast great . 15 to 20 mph winds here in Indiana. Thanks again for all your help. I'll still be spreading the word. Have a blessed day.
Evan Garris 7/11
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Love the rod!
Lowell Tennyson 7/16
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Hadn't cast a fiberglass fly in over 40 years. The rods are a delight; smooth, responsive and accurate.  The slower action felt relaxing and natural. Finish and appointments are both attractive and also, functional. Great craftsmanship. Delivery was prompt. Keep up the great work!!
Carl Calamusa 9/22
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 9’ 6wt Outlaw rod and Qualifly reel. Works perfectly love the response from the rod. Easy and accurate casting. I have to admit I have been euro nymphing the last two years and my casting technique was rusty to say the least. With this new outfit I recovered well enough to get a half dozen fish this morning. Thanks again Carl
Jon Conrad 10/11
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ First fish with the Rod , love it by the way 
Austin Potenza 10/16
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ I took it right outside, slapped an Abel Vaya with Rio 7 on it, and tried it out.  I love it.  Casts real smooth.  Nice action.  Can’t believe you made such a nice rod for that price.  I may have to buy a couple more.  I bring friends with me to Alaska every year for the Silvers, and I always have to lend them rods.  Thought I’d buy one of yours to use as a loaner, but I think I’ll be using it myself! 
Nick Nothoff 10/20

Fly Gear Guide  3/28

I always encourage anglers to try out fiberglass fly rods. They aren’t the esoteric tools that many articles make them out to be. Even though they’re clearly made for more compact fishing environments, modern fiberglass rods offer surprisingly more power than vintage glass rods did. The Rogue, made by Outlaw Rod Company, is one such example.

We tested the 8’, 5-weight model. I removed it from the tube, assembled the 3 sections and wondered “what exactly can this rod do?”

It delivered large, weighted streamers 55 feet without issue.

The blank formula is modeled after modern graphite rod formulas, with the weight distributed evenly and progressively throughout the length of the blank. This means that you get none of that feeble mid-to-tip flex characteristic of vintage models - where the only power to be found may have been in the extreme lower butt section. The Rogue has a distinctly modern feel.

Presentation is where glass rods usually stand out, and the Rogue excels in this category. Note to glass junkies: due to the blank recipe, there’s no need apply as much muscle to obtain a mid-length pinpoint presentation – remember that this is a new-gen glass rod. So, you get the best of both worlds, precision casts and high sensitivity for strike detection, all without sacrificing much distance.

The Rogue features a superb burlwood reel seat with a laser-etched logo on the cap, and a stunning translucent pearl-grey blank. Wraps, guides and finishing are top-tier. I’ve saved the best news for last, and that’s the price, which is strikingly low. To my knowledge, this is the best value fiberglass rod currently available.

The only environments that would prompt me to leave a glass rod at home are extreme ones, like the largest of rivers or windy, choppy lakes. Other than that, I say try out some glass – you’ll be impressed with what new-gen models can accomplish.

Fiberglass has a little more heft than graphite, so I suggest pairing the Rogue with a classic fly reel.

Just pulled out my 3 wt Outlaw today for some small creek and pond fishing and boom this shows up on my great rod! Thanks.

Kris Mickelson 1/3/2023
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐So I fished the morning with my Loomis NRX+s and the afternoon with the Stealth just to compare the two,  the stealth was fantastic, easy to cast and it handled the fish great.  Pretty sure it's going to be my new favorite rod!
Ron Riccetti  6/5/2023
