Getting Into The Mystic

2 Weight Shoot-Out Winner!
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!”
