Summary:
I had a 9wt that was great, a little heavy but good action.

Customer Service:
The rod broke, I shipped it off to get repaired. Orvis sent it back and I never received it.. so they sent me a T3 for free. OUTSTANDING CUSTOMER SERVICE.

Reviewed by: foren_6 ,  Backpacker , from Montrose, CO, USA

Summary:
I have only used it a handful of times, but I am impressed with it's ability to load line in a variety of conditions. A little heavier than I am used to, but a solid rod nonetheless. Make sure you've done those bench presses, b/c that heavier-than-average tip will be trying your muscles.

Customer Service:
Have yet to really experience Orvis' Customer Service.

Similar Products Used:
Scott G-Series (lighter dry-fly fishing version of the trident, just as whippy),
possibly the Sage VPS.

Summary:
Prime example of overpriced Orvis crap. Buy someone else's technology, slap your name on it and charge three times what it's worth. Any rod in the Trident TL's price range is infinitely better. (eg. sage slt's and scott s3's)

Customer Service:
Great. You get good at it when everyone's returning your broken, dysfunctional products.

Summary:
Purchase one of these rods and you'll love it! Try not to look at the reel seat hardware, although I know it will be hard to do after paying the price for one of these babies.

Customer Service:
Haven't used Orvis's customer service yet. I'm told they're good.

Sage SP 9'-0" 6 WT. 4 PC.
