A rod’s power is its resistance to flexing under load. Powerful rods are ‘beefier’ through the bottom half, generate higher line speeds, and are more adept at keeping big fish pinned. Delicate rods are more presentation-oriented, protect light tippet, and are a better choice for picky fish.
The Trout X is an excellent overall 5wt rod at an incredible price point! Perfect for nymph rigs on the Uncompahgre river tailwater, skating caddis on the Gunnison river, and presenting small dry-droppers to cutthroat in those hidden streams.
