I love this rod and broke it on my first bonefish. I sent the rod in and with in 3 days it was shipped back to me. Not only does Clutch make outstanding rods they also have really great customer service!
I have many fly rods(11)from all the major mfg - I love them all and use them often. But Clutch Core is the best of the bunch. It has amazing control , a cool design and great quality parts. I have used it several times now for red fish and leave all my other rods at home in their cases. My only hope is that the company doesn't grow too fast and lose control of quality because this is the best fly rod I own at a very reasonable price. I can't wait to buy my next one
From the minute I unwrapped the rod I was pumped. The cosmetics are top notch (same components of rods costing twice as much) The 9 and 10 I received are very light in hand. Both rods handled the 8-12" flies with ease. Fished the 10 with a 400 grain SA Sonar and could dump the entire line with ease in a 10 mph side wind. The 9 performed flawlessly with airflo striper intermediate easily tossing the same flies 70-100 feet without a problem - The rods perform flawlessly - It's funny to think, the Core series of rods are a step up from the other guy's top of the line.
