Cheating We'll come clean from the outset: Velocity is the freshwater version of our Cobalt action. We did this for an obvious reason: Our high-energy saltwater rods are certifiable handguns. Point and shoot, fast and furious, lifting power and laser loops.
Big flies on open water, blowing like hell? Yep. Send one out to a seam in the middle of a wide freestone and throw in a reach? Nailed it. Lift a meaty streamer with a Belgian backcast and hit the other side of the river? Done. 10 inch brookies in a beaver pond on 6X? Uh . . . not quite. But if speed is what you need . . .Lighter hardware, forgotten fighting butts, foofy finishes for us trout guys, things like that.
End of story.

Velocity 5 wt

I just spent 3 days on private water in North Georgia catching dozens of rainbows including setting my PB then breaking it with a new PB that was pushing 8 or 9 pounds. Of the dozens of fish I caught, especially my PB's, I was amazed how much control I had with the Velocity. It did most of the work and left little up to the reel (Litespeed F)...all the while preserving the 5x and 6x tippets we had to scale down to. It is an amazing rod and should be in every quiver when it comes to trout.

Perfect Great Lakes set-up

The 8Wt Velocity is so light, crisp, and sensitive that it will take the place of a heavy 6wt or 7wt outfit. It will cast heavier lines and big flies better without sacrificing weight or feel. Most importantly, when you get that big trophy Brown to smack your mouse in heavy cover, you'll have a legitimate chance at taking a nice picture together! This is my new go-to rod for Great-Lakes rivers, especially where I may run into a Salmon or Steelhead during the day.

It is great to see the best reel maker expand further into the rod space. I was uncertain they would pull it off but this rod with excellent light action is very precise and the Lockdown feature just means you never drop your reel when knee-deep in a river. Bravo now my son wants one as well...
