All of the rods at Bean are 9' or 10'. Looking at an Orvis rod that is $395 and that's about top dollar for something I am going to strap to the back of a bike. I have a great 9', 4wt Loomis, but it's a 2 pc. Suggestions?
Your prolly looking at the Access. Not bad, but not truly a mid flex as the advertised. The Superfine Touch 7'6" 3wt is the small stream winner if you'd be willing to go the extra hundred.

One of my favorite low dollar small stream rods is the Echo carbon 7'6" 4pc.

It retails for around $170. Actually feels better than the Access your looking at.

BTW, anything shorter than 7 1/2 foot is a novelty.
