    That there is…was just a poor attempt at humor.

    Has to be the Hardy and the Mystic.  $650 vs $550.  
    Hardy too had to change from a rod building company to a marketing company a few years ago.  Too bad, I hope it doesn’t happen to our rodmakers in the US ( those that remain )

    I’m with you though I find it funny this is the first time in many years they have made what’s in my opinion a decent rod

    Don’t think it’s the mystic…I’ve been told that the only rod they sell sporting a Korean blank is the reaper at $250…up from that there made in Michigan.

    My thoughts exactly.   To me, the taper makes the rod.  Graphite is graphite, resins are resins.   All cheese is made from dairy….but they sure don’t taste the same.   How a rod is designed is more important to me than the brand of guides or the source of the carbon…ymmv

    Not saying i agree or disagree with the shootout…rods are far to personal…just thought it made for a good read.

    Honestly…it’s a dries or small wet fly only rod for me…but I expected that going in…I’ve fished a lot of glass in the past though.

    Does this mean we have moved full circle and are going back to metallic reel seats?

    Hard question for sure when I have many go to flies for different situations.

    If I had to bring it down to just one pattern to use, that’s effective in most all situations, I’d have to go with a #16 Pheasant Tail. Tied with and without beads, with and without legs, etc. Quick to tie and easy for clients to fish.
