I had a chance to use the rod this weekend. I really like the way it casts with the rage 390. I caught a small steelhead (approx 7lbs) with it and it was a blast. The rod was able to handle the fish without issue.

However I feel that it's probably a bit too much rod for targeting trout. It will certainly work, and I'm sure it will be fun to fish, but I was hoping for a lighter feel considering this is a 5wt.

I may sell it and look for something lighter. Not sure yet though.

Agree that 390 is heavy, but that's what orvis recommended.

My intended use for this rod is for trout and it feels a bit stiff for that. But I've never had a 5 wt spey rod so don't really have anything to compare it to.
