-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.
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.
