“With the mutual business name of Mystic, it seems like we might have a nice fit and I have been wanting to put one of these rods to the test. My first impression of the rod on looks alone was very good.
Mystic M 693-4 fly rod seems to have something with the 9′ 3″ length”
“If you are looking for a powerhouse 6 wt fly rod without paying premium prices, theMystic M-Series M693-4is it. I would definitely give this rod a thumbs up”.
“All Mystic rods are covered by a lifetime warranty, for the original owner. The warranty does not cover loss of gear, misuse, neglect or normal wear. There is a $50 handling charge if you need to use the warranty for a rod.
If you are looking for a powerhouse 6 wt rod without paying premium prices, the M693-4 is it. I would definitely give this rod a thumbs up.”
“TheMystic M-3113-4is my Goldilocks rod. It’s just right. The quality of this rod struck me as soon as I took it out of the tube. It is very nicely finished and the reel seat hardware is nicer than what comes on some rods that cost twice what the Mystic does”.
“Fishing switch rods has put me on fish I was missing before. They have allowed me to reach water that was off limits, fish deep runs more effectively and manage drifts like never before. I even got Kent turned on to two handers, which he previously had little interest in. The results speak for themselves. Switch rods have definitely changed the way I fish for trout.”
“It is surprising to me that many people haven’t heard of Michigan based Mystic fly rods, as every one of their rods I have cast have been exceptional and have great value”.
“What theM Series 9’3″ good for: Trout between 14″-25″, can distance cast well, light saltwater use for sea run cutthroat and coho jacks, windy conditions, single hand spey casting, stripping flies, overall a forgiving and easy to cast, versatile trout rod.
I wouldn’t recommend: Larger coho and other salmon, summer steelhead, while it could handle smaller specimens no problem, I think a ten pound coho or summer would have it’s way with this rod.”
“In my opinion the11’3 Mystic 8 wt switch rodrivals the TCX (and I love the TCX switches), Z axis, NRX, Helios or any other high end, expensive rod in performance. This rod (and no other either…yeah I’m talking about you Sintrex) is not the second coming of fly rods, it will not make you cooler, grow a bigger cock, give you more rich friends, nor can you name drop Mystic. This rod however is a fun to fish 8 weight switch rod with very good value for the money.”
