Assembling your rod by the water is quick and easy with locating markers on the blank on both sections male and female.

Great fly rod, 10 ft wt6
The rod is very well balanced, the weight is in the range of the high class rod, and very well balanced, cork is in good quality, and the blank too. The connections of the section have a little line that can help you to set to rod. Is stiff not too much, and with a fast action. I fish with this rod with a cortland wf5f; the rod charge good, and also a roll cast became very easy. At this price is a real bargain. I will buy also another size.
DON'T LOOSE THIS OFFER. I have a sage xp 10 ft wt5 and sincerely i don't know what is better.. Review by Otto (Created 14/01/2019)
In terms of review I guess most people are aware of the GR50 range, in summary though -
The first thing that strikes you is the quality look and feel of the rod, it features many aspects normally only found on more Expensive rods rods, low flash ice grey satin finish, black nickel high rise guides, tiger burl wood trim (which is stunning) line markers, section markers and dual cork handles to minimise wear.
It’s performance is excellent, very light, quick recovery and a great Action. The rod tube is quality too as you would expect from Greys.
The thing which makes it stand out however at Active Angling is the price! I know the range is about 5 years old now but this must be around half the launch price which is a genuine bargain.
