The New AETOS fly rod series builds upon the rich Fenwick tradition of developing the highest quality and performance rods on the market. These rods feature fast recovering high performance modern tapers artfully crafted with a lightweight feel. With freshwater, saltwater, switch and Spey models available, the AETOS range offers a perfect rod for any location.
There is no question that the Aetos is the best performing inexpensive rod in our whole Shootout! It isn’t the lightest rod in either overall weight or swing weight but it performs surprisingly well at all distances, surpasses a lot of far more expensive rods. I think the medium-fast action and softer tip are just about perfect. The action is very similar to the Zephrus and is one reason this rod performs so well.
The Aetos has been our most popular inexpensive fly rod in the 4-5-6 line sizes. Anglers have loved the performance it provides at a nice price.
