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.
I ended up getting a couple of the hatch reels.
Haters gonna hate…
Kershaw chive…all of the Keyshawn are nice though even the cheap imported ones.
I had one of the truckers…The funny thing is that i wrote my name under the bill so if i ever see anyone in these parts with one ill probably rip it off their head and look to see if its mine!
Well I’m jealous guys, my truck got broken into this fall and mine got stolen along with two rods and reels…
Thanks for your help everyone.
hey thanks guys
pm sent…no response
Does this mean we have moved full circle and are going back to metallic reel seats?
yea no crap…a bold move to be sure.
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.
He has an obligation to his business and his family to maximize profits in a not so profitable industry.
I have cast that rod a good deal.
