Switched to the reaper this past year after fishing other rods for years that are more than double it’s price and never going back! It’s a great all around rod that delivers power and great action and casts effortlessly. Highly recommend this rod to anglers at all levels, you can’t beat the performance and value.
Now own a 4wt, 6wt, 7wt, 8wt 9wt, great rods, excellent for Freshwater and Saltwater fishing, incredible casting. Best keep secret in fishing.
Took my Reaper 9' 6 wt. to my local river, the Gunpowder, and put it through its paces. Casting- rod loaded readily and sweetly (Wulff triangle taper line), and handled water and aerial mends easily. Did everything from nymphing pocket water to long casts- the relatively soft tip (but not too soft, mind), was a pleasure. I cast everything from 20 midges to 4 wooly buggers, and all were easily taken care of. Fit and finish are fine. I would've liked a rod sock, in addition to the case- just a little added protection... One slight concern- the ferrules seem small, and only time will tell in regards to them wearing. On the whole, a fantastic value for the money!
I received my rods, 3wt and 6wt and they are as good or better looking than rods I have that were much more expensive. The quality is exceptional. Thank you for the great service.
Bought this rig for my wife. the pole casts very well with great action, wife loves it. Service was quick and painless, has me wishing I would of bought one for myself.
Guiding year round for muskie and tackle busting stripers in the mountains of Virginia equates to a hard life for fly rods and Mystic is up to the challenge! The Mystic Reaper fly rod is a do-it-all rod for anglers looking for something at a mid-level price point. Mystic designed the Reaper fly rod to deliver immense power through the bottom two-thirds of the rod, while maintaining enough delicacy in the tip to protect lighter tippet. Quality flyrods at a fair price, with customer service and support that is almost unheard of in the industry, couple that with a rock solid warranty and you have a winning combination that excels afield.

I’ve been fishing Mystic fly rods for 3 years and I can’t say enough great things about them. From the cork to the tip they excel everywhere over any other fly rods I have personally fished. The Mystic M-Series single hander has incredible power and tracks beautifully. Where the 8wt Mystic M Switch is a power-horse with the ability to launch a chicken on the sinktip, toss an indi with ease, and not blow a rotator cuff in the process.
I fished the new 8wt Mystic spey rod this past weekend on some of the big water MI has to offer. This stick is a cannon! I found that the rod is fast yet allows me time to feel the line load and deliver a 520 grain head well beyond my other 8wt requiring a 575 grain. The spey has many characteristics of their switch, another favorite rod of mine, with superb cork, finish, and hardware. f you like a spey that doesn’t feel like a telephone pole yet has the ability to reach the edges of your casting distance, I strongly suggest spending some time casting this rod.
Took the Reaper 4wt to the Lake Fork of the Gunnison for a Rocky Mountain Flyathlon race. This rod had great balance and nice casting power. I had no problems casting into tight spaces and fighting fish on light tippet. This is one great rod and a great value. I highly recommend the Reaper!
