Casted this new Clearwater rod in 8wt at Orvis Carmel store. The rod is faster and the accuracy is improved comparing to the old version. Yet it is an entry level Orvis rod and cannot match the performance with Recon or Helios 3. The new clearwater is also very easy to cast and backed with a great warranty. I think it is a good choice for the new casters.
