Default 8ft 6 5wt fly rod

Just broke my 8ft6 5wt hand built fly rod. Can't repair ,its broken in two places. Looking to replace ,any recommendations. Most of my other rods are hardy, not the high end of the range. Seen mixed reports on greys rods which was my immediate thought

For the same price as a medium Greys, you could have a Chas Burns hand built rod look up Burns Built Rods.

I have a Hardy Sirrus 5# in 8 ft 6. Lovely rod. I wouldn't swap it.

Euan

PS I have no connection to this ad but it is the same rod.

I have an 8'6" #4-5 Sonik3. I'm not sure if they still make them but I can highly recommend them.

I have a Greys gr50 8ft 6" #5 and I paid 115 new for it and I've not had any problems with it. I use it for most of my fishing and I would definitely buy another if I broke it.
