I have fished with a lot of different rods from different brands and the REAVER blows them away, it cast wonderfully ,line shoots with ease. The extra guide is a great addition, and the one of a kind grip makes a world of difference from feel of the strike to how light this rod is, you can cast all day . I would recommend this to anyone once you try this REAVER from Syndicate you will be hooked. This is now my go to rod.
I have fished Syndicates Pipeline series in 2wt, 3wt & the 4wt for a few years now as well as some of the Aquos models. I have recently solely been using the new Reaver in a 2wt and I must say, I love it. A rod is a rod to many, but you cannot knock something until you try it! This rod has incredibly smooth backbone all the way down the blank and the Recoil guides are simply amazing. That lower guide eyelet is a lifesaver in wet conditions, wind & simply easier to find your line without it slapping over your rod & reel. How about the grip you may ask? It’s no doubt the best contour shape, texture & design that I have fished. You can feel every single “tink” of your tungsten bead off every rock. I kid you not. The original Pipeline is an amazing rod, but this rod is truly something worth trying. It is a very accurate rod for not only Euro, but also dry dropper style for me. I have fished this rod in many water types from the GSMNP daily to our East TN tailwaters. It has handled everything with ease from 4inch trout to 22+ inch trout and even multiple gigantic Redhorse carp! The backbone of this rod is incredible & I encourage you to try it.
