This value-oriented offering performed serviceably during the evaluation. On targets within 35 feet, where the majority of trout fishing occurs, it was deadly accurate. It can swing a streamer, turn over a diminutive PMD, and cast a hopper-dropper rig. The grip is comfortable, and it balances nicely in hand. However, the Theorem has its limitations. The rod had a tendency to bottom out, and it gave muted feedback. Casting longer distances was a chore, and it lacked the backbone exhibited by the other rods. It also had the least lively feel. For the price, however, it is still an attractive option.
