The 6 wt. rod is really gaining popularity, from throwing big foam flies out west, streamers in the Smokies, or Midwest bass, people are starting to realize the value and potential of a good 6-weight rod. To read our all-new 2021 6-Weight Shootout click HERE!!
The Hardy Shadow 9′ 6-weight is the perfect candidate for filling such a variety of vast niches.
The Galvan Rush is the reel that we’ve paired with the Shadow and is quite simply one of the “best bang for your buck” reels in the industry right now. We are now offering both the Rush-6 or Rush-5 reels on our 6-weight outfits. Both sizes work great for a 6-weight rod. If you prefer a larger arbor or are concerned with backing capacity go with the R-6. If you like a lighter and smaller reel, go with the R-5.
No matter where you’re fishing or what fly is on the end of your line this outfit will do the job for you. We’ve also included a hand-tied leader, a Scientific Angler’s MPX, and all the backing that you’ll need to get on the water.
