Thank you for the kind words, Ira! We’re glad you loved your experience with our Sky rods!

I recently introduced my daughter to fly fishing on a fall trip to West Virginia.
After a 1/2 hr lesson from the guide using my Helios 2 9’5wt tip flex she was throwing nice loops with good accuracy from 25-50′ and landed four 1 1/2 – 3 1/2 lb rainbows. She’s hooked and wants her own outfit, so I went to Tight Lines Fishing in Parsippany, NJ with the idea of test casting my H2 against the latest and greatest – Asquith and X. The staff insisted that I also try the Sky, and I’m glad they did.
All rods were lined with SA Mastery MPX and all were great rods, very close in performance. The Sky, however, seemed to do everything, from distance to accuracy, with less effort. It is simply a fabulous rod, and at $100 – $300 less than the others, it can’t be beat. I’m seriously conflicted whether to buy the Sky for my daughter or keep it myself.
I don’t know how you did it, but kudos to all at Douglas Outdoors.
