"This is a fantastic flats rod - my goto rod for Florida flats species like reds and trout. I've had plenty of fun with baby tarpon on this rod too. Faster than the T6 or the T8. It handles quite a bit of wind. This rod makes me feel like a better caster than I really am."

“I have the T7 and T8 and just back from the Bahamas. I really like these rods and used them for the week in preference to my S…. M…….. I fished the Rio Permit on the T8 and an Airflo Bonefish on the T7 and both were great matches. When the conditions were right the T7 was magical and never felt underpinned.
This is a very special rod and will bring a smile to all that casts it.”

“Just received another Stickman rod from Akos a few days ago. This time it was a T7 in the "Evil Black" configuration. This rod joins a brace of Stickmans that I currently own and love (P4, 8',#4), (P5,9', #5), and (T6, #6). Every one of these rods are excellent in their own ways, and IMHO, are "Special", and a cut above any other premium offerings that I have cast and fished.
The T7 is super light in the hand, with a very minimal swing weight. It literally feels like a 9', #5 from other makers in terms of weight. Build quality and craftsmanship is excellent (as are all the Stickmans that I have seen). The T7 is much faster and more powerful than the lighter weight Stickmans that I have, but not at the expense of feel. This rod loads at close range (20') with 'touch', but still has the power to fire out 80'+ with ease. The line speed that this rod generates is amazing. Neat trick, Akos!
Suffice it to say, I am impressed to say the least!”

“So jetzt ist sie heute angekommen, die Stickman T7. Nen paar Probewürfe bei der Kälte auf der Wiese gemacht! Ergebnis: der erste Eindruck verspricht eines der tollsten, geilsten Ruten die ich bisher in der Hand gehabt habe.
Test an der Küste steht aber noch aus, glaube aber nicht, das die dort enttäuschen wird, sondern begeisternd. Verarbeitung zumindest was mich betrifft ganz großes Kino!”

“Ma canne préférée !
Le scion est souple et très réactif, et la puissance est aussi là pour les lancers longs en mer, juste adapter le lancer en ralentissant un peu le geste…
C’est une canne qui a de la "personnalité"... testée avec soie Barrio SLXI S3, Airflo Sixthsense hover et S5, elle sait tout faire et sans fatigue!”
Yves Meyssirel, France
“The cork handle feels like velvet. The rod throws beautiful loops with the saltwater Wulff 7wt floating line. The soft tip combined with the fast action is perfect for my casting style. Light weight..and the Torzite stripping guides look sharp! My first chance to fish it will be in March in the Florida Everglades. I'm a very happy customer Akos!
The rod performed perfectly throwing tight under the mangroves for snook! Great blend of speed and feel! You make a great fly rod my friend!”
