They are made in Indonesia by Rell Indo Co., Ltd.; most of them are made from IM8 graphite blanks. Not widely known in the U. S. Rod and reel combos are marketed from about $270 to $370 for different models, but if you search around online you can usually pick up the combo for about 1/2 of the MSRP.
None of the fishing sites that are in my bookmarks list mention this brand at all, which sort of confirms my idea that nobody knows much about this rod. For this reason I would only buy one if I could hold it in my hand and examine it in detail first. They may be just fine, but there is only one way to find out.
Thanks for the help, I wondered why I couldn't find much info on them. I'm looking for my first rod and reel, any suggestions would be great. I was introduced to fly fishing last summer and was hooked. Want to get the supplies ready before spring.
