Fly rods can cost hundreds (+) of dollars. It is probable good for a $30 flyrod. If the action is good and even, there are no "dead" spots in it, and you think it will work for your fishing area and species, then it is $30 well spent. You could shop around and talk to guys in sporting goods shops, taking a look at high end rods so that you can make a comparison and decide if it will work for you~ good luck
I second that, bear in mind you get what you pay for!
Match the rod with a good line and you should have something good worth casting.
Look into Bass Pro Shops... I bought my nephew a beginner 5/6 wt 9ft Scientific Angler rod for $19.95 a couple weeks ago. Casts great!
If its your first set up it will do fine. My first set up I got on clearance for 10 included a reel, line, leader, and some flies! I caught some fish on it and didnt worry about breakin it while learnin. I have a much nicer set up now. I still take out the 10 set up to troll with now and then.
NO!!!!!!, my saying is, "you get what you pay for". This piece of junk will snap the second you catch anything over 3 lbs. With fly fishing, the rod does the casting for you, the cheeper you get, the harder you have to work on you part. If you want to catch real fish, don't go cheep.
No probably not. But I would get it and try it out.
