Piscifun Sword Graphite

Usage: Will Come In Handy for a Wide Variety of Situations

Piscifun makes this rod to ensure you will not be restricted to using if from just specific situations or fishing conditions as it will come in handy for a wide variety of situations.

And this is mostly because it is available in different size options to suit different kinds of users. The 4wt is 8 foot 6 inches long and is perfect for use when fishing in small streams, and for use when fishing small trout, sunfish, and other smaller fish species.

With the 5 and 6wt fishing rods, which are both 9 feet long, you will have a universal fishing rod that will be perfect for beginners. These rods will also be ideal for use when fishing in larger streams and rivers and are excellent for general trout fishing.

Their 7wt rod is also 9 feet long and will excel when fishing in saltwater, but you can still use it effectively in freshwater. The 7wt fishing rod is ideal for relatively larger fish species, like salmon, bass, and carp.

But, if you mostly fish in the ocean and other larger saltwater bodies like lakes where you are likely to encounter large fish species, their 9-feet long 9wt will be the perfect fishing rod for you. Also, this rod will be the most ideal for salmon and winter steelhead fishing.

Performance: Highly Precise and Accurate

Being a well-built fishing rod from a highly reputable brand, you can be confident that the performance of the Piscifun Sword Graphite will never disappoint you whether you are a beginner or highly experienced angler.

This fishing rod is made from IM7 graphite, which is a highly durable material that still maintains the perfect flex for easier fishing. This graphite material not only makes the rod more durable but will also ensure increased accuracy and enhanced overall performance.

Also, this fishing rod will allow for precise rod placement and also ensure you get an instant pulling power, which increases the likelihood of landing a fish everything time you go out angling.

To make things even better, this fishing rod will include an ingenious design that makes use of some white dots meant to allow you to align the guides easily and more accurately. With these dots, you will have an easier time setting up the rod and line for more precise casting.

Construction: Built to Serve You Well for Long

With the IM7 graphite as the core material, you can be confident that it will serve you well for many years to come. Graphite is a tough and durable material that will also maintain a good flex and will keep the overall rod weight down.

Besides the graphite core material, this fishing rod is also made with chrome guides and ceramic stripping guides inserts, which are both highly durable and will combine to ensure you get a smooth fly line glide with minimal friction.

The construction also includes a machined aluminum reel seat that will increase the power and is also more durable. Better yet, this reel seat will also include double lock rings that will ensure you get a sturdier reel attachment for a more stable fishing tackle setup.

Another element that many anglers will love about the rod’s construction is that it will come in a 4-piece design that will make it easy to take apart for easy carry for all anglers, better yet, it will also come with a PVC rod tube to make the rod easy to pack for convenient carry and storage.

Action: Slow, Medium and Fast Action Options

Because the Piscifun Sword Graphite is an all-round fishing rod that is built to all anglers out there and for different fishing situations and conditions, it will be available in all three action options.

The 4wt rod is a slow action fishing rod that will bend throughout the length of the rod, and hence offering more flex. This means it will have the most flexible action among all the rod options for this model. And it is this high flexibility that will make it the perfect choice when fishing small fish types as it will not have to bear a lot of weight and will allow for a better fight.

For those looking for medium action rods that will be handy for both small and larger fish species, the 5wt, 6wt and 7wt models will have you covered.

These fishing rods will be designed to bend only at the top section of the rod, and hence offering relatively more casting distances. Also, these three are the most versatile fishing rods for this model.

Piscifun also provides a fast action rod, the 9wt that will bend very little as only the top 1/3 or less will bend, and this makes it perfect for fishing large fish species. 

Also, this fast action rod comes in handy when you are fishing in water with heavy weed cover. This rod will be useful for both short and long casting distances and will provide better sensitivity.

Handle: Super Lightweight and Comfortable

For the handle, this fishing rod will also not let you down as instead of using the traditional or most commonly used EVA foam, it has an even better and more comfortable cork handle.

The 3A grade cork handle will ensure the rod is more sensitive, and you can easily tell when you get a bite. It will also remain warmer for your hand whether you are fishing in warm or cold weather.

And still on the handle, the 7wt and 9wt fishing rod sizes will include the full wells cork handle to allow the angler to apply more power when they want longer casts even when using heavier lines. This handle design also ensures the rod is easier to balance and comfortable to hold even when the fish is fighting.

Because with the 4wt, 5wt, and 6wt it is all about the accuracy and precision when casting, these rods will include a half wells cork handle. The half wells cork handle also helps minimize hand fatigue.

Price: Feels and Looks Like a More Expensive Rod

One of the most impressive elements of the Piscifun Sword Graphite is that it will look and feel more expensive than it actually is, and when compared to similar models from other brands, it is also a more affordable model.

And while it is true there are different fishing rods out there that will retail for a fraction of its price, the quality is not the same. Hence, for the money, this fishing rod is just a perfect choice.

What’s more, you will not need to buy a storage tube or bag as the manufacturer provides one to ensure you get an even better value for your money.

Verdict

A high-performing fishing rod that comes in different size options to cater to all kinds of anglers and is also well-built from graphite.

Piscifun Sword Graphite is a perfect fishing rod in all aspects. The graphite material makes it highly durable, and it will also include a more comfortable cork handle. Also, it is available in 5 size options and fast, medium, and slow action to cater to any fishing condition and fish species.
