Glad to hear Orvis is finally joining in the spey game.
I remember a few years ago I went to a local club that hosted a manufacturer's rep rod, reel, and line demo day and Orvis was there but could not compete in the trout spey area. It was a shame Orvis did not have a 3wt or 4wt trout spey....
In that demo day, I found my perfect trout spey rod after demoing lots of different rods.
It was the G Loomis PRO4X.
I love the rod - casts a mile and can handle light scandi, single hand lines, and the heaviest, chunkiest skagit heads with ease and accuracy!
