NEW ROD - IN STOCK NOW!
A wolf in sheep’s clothing, a sleeper… Call it what you want, but this is one of the finest tapered 9’ four weights I’ve cast - at any price. I’ve cast and/or own 490-4 configurations from makers such as Sage, Loomis, Scott, Winston, Orvis, Hardy, Douglas, etc. This is a tricky size to get right and this Radius is easily my favorite. Fish it with a Rio Gold for a nearly perfect match. From fly in hand up close to as far as you would want to fish a four, it forms beautiful loops - you control the size. The blank feels like a one piece, providing the caster constant feedback. I also spent a little time with the 590-4 Radius - much of the same. Looking forward to fishing more with this Radius. Thank you, Lamson!
We appreciate the informed review! The Radius is a fantastic casting rod in all the sizes.
I got myself the 5wt and its a sweet casting rod with great feel and recovery. My wish is that Lamson would produce a euro nymphing rod from this blank as a foundation and please add a fight butt too. I'd buy it in a heartbeat.
That Radius 5wt is awesome, glad to hear you are liking it. Thanks a ton for giving that feedback on a euro rod too! We super appreciate when people let us know what they are looking for.
I bought two of these in 9ft 5wt and paired them with the Guru S reel for guiding trips for trout. They have all the backbone of a heavier rod but every bit of the touch of a smaller rod.
If you're looking for a flyrod that will be perfect for trout and bass, this is it!
Guiding with our rods and reels is the highest compliment! Thanks for putting those rods to work and fishing them hard.
Hi lamson team, do you know if this rod will be available in Europe soon ?
I got this rod a few days ago and paired it with the speedster. Since then I have wanted to cast nothing else. I don’t even care if I catch any fish cuz every single cast on this Combo is like getting that perfect high-five! But it handles big fish like a dream too! Perfect rod at a great price
High five! The Speedster and the Radius are a perfect pair.
