    I was wondering if any of you G2 owners could comment on how the action of a 4wt compares to a Winston WT.

    G2 is a nice stick.

    Not sure on how the G2 compares to the WT, but some feel that the G2’s action varies with the rod length.

    The 8’4″ and 8’8″ 4wt G2’s are great and fish on the medium side of medium-fast.

    I own both G2 8’8″ 4wt n the 9ft 4wt, the 9ft is somewhat ‘crsipier’ and in many occasions, the extra length has saved my ass, but having said that the 8’8″ is a sweet rod.

    I got introduced to Scott rods late and have been kicking my self for not knowing them earlier 🙂

    The WT is going to be a little slower.

    I agree with what has been said here.

    I have the 8’4″ 2wt and use it almost exclusively on small water in the Northeast during the Trico hatches of late summer/early fall.

    Thanks for your help everyone.  I sold a couple of rods and ended up buying both.  

    This is an example of having your priorities in the right place.

    John S or anyone else, what are your thoughts on the 3wts? Are they somewhere in middle between the 2 and 4 or do they lean more towards the light (2wt) side?

    Guys I haven’t made much to do about this lately but this board does have a real first and last names policy and I would appreciate it if everyone would go ahead and comply.

    Brandon, I’ve never cast the 8’4″ 3wt G2, but own and have used extensively the 8’8″ models in 3, 4 and 5 weights.

    Thanks for the info John.

    I predominately fish inside the GSMNP and suspect that the 3wt would handle the situations that I fish just fine (typically no droppers), typically largest I throw is a size 16.
