    Lots of lovely wild trout on the California Glass rod

    I fished a Sunray glass rod with the Jeremy Lucas delicate presentation line, 12' leader & a Black Gnat.....lots of lovely wild trout were caught.

    Thin Lip Mullet on the California Glass 7.5' for a #4wt made for a good scrap 👍
    Protects the tippet and reduces hook pulls

    Amazingly robust and pokey little rod

    I was interested in this rod after being so impressed with my 7wt volition. I was lucky enough to win this rod in a competition that Tom was running on his facebook page the other week so I was over the moon as I was considering purchasing the rod if I had not won it. I have never used a fibreglass fly rod before but after half an hour of adjustments and slowing my cast down a bit I was rocking and rolling.

    My main intention for this rod was to use it for stalking big specimen trout in difficult to reach places such as under the trees etc especially in the summer months where if you was using a 10 foot 7 weight you simply would not be able to have the room to cast with a full size rod.

    Tom has stated that he has taken carp up to 15lbs on this rod so I was hoping i was up to the task of what I wanted to ask from it......I was initially worried when I felt initially how bendy the rod was......however my fears were put to rest straight away I put this rod through its paces yesterday talking four decent trout including a golden trout around the 5lbs mark.

    This rod had no problem at all tacking the hard fighting trout of Rockbourne Trout fishery in the New Forest. The rod certainly bends but at no point did I feel my rod was in any danger. I always play my fish on the reel anyhow so the fight is distributed 50/50 between the rod and reel.......If you want to yank a big trout in using hand stripping then you probably should be using a 10 foot 7 weight rod.....using a bendy fibreglass rod backs fighting fish fun and in my mind thats wha fishing is all about.....FUN

    As other reviewers have stated this rod also casts like a rocket for a 4 weight too

    I'm over the moon with this rod and cannot wait to get some real lumps on the end of my line and put another bend on this rod

    Cheers Guys

    Glass California.... Amazing

    I’ve been using this rod for 2 months now, it’s quite simply awesome. Casts a #4 line like a dream, throw a #5 El Guapo like a bullet! A #6 line loads superbly when I’m fishing the canal for perch and Zander. The only thing I’ve not tried yet is a #3 on small streams but that won’t be long!! The power is quite unbelievable, it’s a pleasure to use!

    It’s frigin awesome!!!

    It’s awesome it feels like a 3 weight bends like a 3 weight and casts like a 6 weight but it’s a 4 weight, I can cast 90’ the whole line!!! Like Tom shows on the video but also will cast short I’m so impressed with it!!!

    Sick rod!

    Ordered the 8' #4 California which I'll use on rivers & stillwaters. Not used as yet but the rod looks/ feels absolutely quality-super light & super flexible. Agree with Tom, fishing light weight is the way to go. Haven't used a 10'+ #7 in a long time & my back/ shoulder feels the benefit. Simple....fish lighter, fish longer. This Sunray Cali glass is a RAD addition to the quiver-highly highly recommended rod-cheers Tom!
