    My 9' #5 definitely feels lighter in the hand than my Zenith 9' #5.
    Great rods.

    I took a refund from JN who I must say were very good but couldn't replace the rod (understandably) but also couldn't get a replacement section from Guideline (really not so good)

    Anyway, I mooched around for another 4wt and settled on a Vision Onki. I've taken it out a couple of times and I will simply say this: This may be my favourite rod ever.

    The Onki's are incredible value for money as well as being a very good rod. I've had a Brown in the 5-6 lb class on my #4 and it handled it well.
    There may be rods that are as good as the Onki but I've yet to find one.

    Skaj how did the actions compare between the Onki and the Fario?

    My 8ft9 #3 has been fine so far. Had a few decent fish on it.

    Not dissimilar, Jay. The Onki is listed as med/fast but I’d say it’s closer to a fast action, the Fario was slightly lighter but only by half a gnat’s cock.

    I have finally had a chance to use my Fario (Birthday present) . My rod is 9ft for 5wt and I was using it on a drifting boat. Absolutely love this rod top marks. It has some beef behind it and picks off line with ease, managed a few fish as well with ease. ��

    Sit still and watch the river, it's all a part of fishing.
