    Wink Guideline Elevate 10ft #6 - or - Vision Onki 10ft #6 which should I buy?

    Hi folks, I have been fly fishing for a year and a half using 9'6 #6 Orvis encounter and same Orvis clearwater. I sometime feel the Clearwater is a bit 'soft' (quite a bit of give in it, if that makes sense). I am toying with buying either a Guideline Elevate or a Vision Onki in 10ft #6. I have read some review which make me think they might be a wee bit stiffer. I fish regularly on a local small reservoir and occasionally at Lake of Mentieth. My thoughts are that the 10ft might be a bit better for the boat fishing.

    I'd genuinely appreciate your feedback and opinions on the two rods I am considering. All my gear is #6 as that's what I started with and feel it's fine for me. Regards, Allan.

    I haven't tried the Guideline Elevate although I have had a Vision Onki in 10'0"#6 for some while now and find it a superb rod.

    If you have a look on here you should be able to find an in depth write up that I did on this rod when they first came out.

    Thank you Rodger I found your write-up. A good in-depth review if I may say so. Would you consider it suitable for someone with limited experience , but looking to improve, or do you think it would be more suited to someone with a bit of experience. I'm just trying to avoid buying the wrong rod. Thanks

    These rods are suitable for fishermen of any level of capability. Try to find a stockist who will let you try before you buy,I would look at GAC or Jubilee Lakes. Jubilee will probably give you the best deal if they aren't too far away from you.
