    Review of My Mystic Reaper Fly Rod

    Review of My Mystic Reaper Fly Rod

    I would like to submit a testimonial/ review of my Mystic fly rods experience. Let me start off by saying that I own two Mystic fly rods, both Reapers. The first is a Mystic Reaper 6 wt fly rod, the second is a Mystic Reaper 7 wt. I bought the 6 wt after fishing my friends reaper for a good bit, while out smallie fishing one day. Before this, I built my own rods, and I thought I liked the way the handled and cast. After fishing the Reaper, I didn’t want to give it back. It made casts no rod of mine had ever made. I was easily throwing my fly 15 to 20 feet farther, and on target. This means I was working a whole lot less to get my flies where they needed to be, and I can definitely tell after a day in the boat. I fish my 6 wt. mostly for smallmouth, I use a Rio outbound short Intermediate 6 wt. line. This combination is fantastic.

    I recently bought the 7 wt. I plan on fishing that as a popper fly rod, and for throwing trout streamers next summer. I have had the privilege of casting the M series 8 wt fly rod, as well. Fantastic Rod!

    I now recommend the Mystic lineup to anyone that will listen, and I dare them to compare the rods to any of the the rod company offerings.

    The next rods on my wishlist is the Mystic Switch 11′ 3″ 7wt, and the Reaper 8′ 3wt.

    Fly Fish Ohio's 2009 Great 2- Weight Shoot-Out | Mystic M-Series

    The Mystic M273-2 has been named the winner of Fly Fish Ohio’s 2009 Great 2-Weight Shoot-Out!

    Their panel of experts awarded our 2-weight rod the highest combined score in the competition with an “amazing” 4.45 points out of a possible five. The reviewers fished 22 fly rods from eleven manufacturers with a variety of reels and lines and a range of conditions. Reviewer Paul Feldman says:

     “There’s no question in my mind that I would leave the fly rod fairy a few brown trout scales for the Mystic M273-2. As an amateur rod builder and a tackle freak, the quality and craftsmanship that this rod displays is the equal of any rod I have ever seen. The fact that it also delightful to cast and fish with is almost too good to be true!”

    Fly Fish Ohio is an online treasure trove of fly fishing advice, gear reviews and stories serving the Midwest and beyond. The award-winning site is brought to you by self-proclaimed “fanatics” whose goal is to help you “find your own bit of paradise” on the water.

    Our thanks to the folks at Fly Fish Ohio and their reviewers for their glowing recommendation as well as their well-documented time, effort and methodology.

    Mid Current Review: Mystic Tremor Salt Water 8-Weight

    Mid Current Review: Mystic Tremor Salt Water 8-Weight

    “Saltwater aficionados will appreciate the slightly over-sized line guides (both the gauge and diameter), but bear in mind that this is a light-weight rod built to handle more challenging small-to-mid-size permit, bonefish, jack, barracuda and snapper. My #8 even took a little unexpected abuse when I was caught off guard and unintentionally high-sticked a smallish jack. The rod survived, and I got a quick refresher on how not to handle a fly rod when fishing from a dock.

    Rod designers and builders have been after the holy grail of rod dynamics for a long time: making that 4-piece feel and act like a one-piece. These days, several manufacturers have attained this goal, Mystic being one of them”
