    Silly me. or silly them that website format sucks.  Why put one rod under a separate tab?

    Regardless, thanks Lando.  

    Glad to see the 8’2″ 5wt.  
    $595 is hefty $$ for a small fish stick.  

    How bout all you guys buy one and then sell me your used one next year at half price?

    Probably because that new website went live at 1PM today and you were perusing a work in progress. If you send them an email pointing out that you had trouble, I am sure they will fix it.

    i am upset at the fact that they have no rods in the seven weight. Now I know that that is a rather niche weight and according to some (Lefty), has no use. But to me and some others it is THE warm water weight especially for spotted and smallmouth in rivers and creeks. Now I realize that for casting flies that resemble a small bird with a hook (which I am not opposed to throwing) the larger weight are more appropriate. But I kinda feel a bit hurt…

    I am a die hard Scott fan but right now it looks like TFO is making the better rods for my area of fishing. I am also upset that they discontinued the X2S, next year will be better I hope.

    Glad you guys like the catalog.

    Not sure what kind of fishing you’re doing Peter, but we have several 7wts…907/4in the A3 series, 907/4 in the G2 series (my personal fav smallile rod. Also a great no wind, tailing redfish rod as some friends who fish Mosquito Lagoon have pointed out), and the S4S 907/4 which makes a killer fast action bonefish stick or if you want something with a bit more “umph” for trout streamers. Then there is the S4 907/4 and 957/4, both good all around, do everything 7wts in the 9 and 9 1/2′ category.

    Good fishing

    I have never been so happy to be wrong, I wasn’t able to get into the 4 peice section. Sorry fellas, special me. Anyway back to plotting how to get my hands on a Scott 7wt…

    I haven’t been able to look at any of the S4 line any thoughts? I have cast the G2 and it is a dream for bass bugs, and roll casts like a dream. What I like about it is that have to remember that you have to slow your mechanics if youre coming from a faster action rods. Or at least I do.

    Hi Peter,

    The new web site has a cool feature – if you click on the actual rod model you are interested in, the dialog for that rod appears on the right so you get an idea of what that model was designed to do.

    Best Regards,

    Beechy

    Very true, but it is hard to get a feel for any rod without getting to feel the rod. And even as helpful as that is I suppose that I will have to drive to New Orleans to get a feel for the rod. I have every confidence that it is all I have heard about.
