    This is a great casting rod. However, as a handmade, US product I am rather disappointed by the finish of the rod. There are noticeable runs in the varnish and a couple of very small spots that look as if something about the size of a pin was removed from the varnish when drying. Nonetheless, this is a smooth casting rod. Just not sure it's up to the price. The ferrule fit is also questionable. Good pop, when disassembling the rod but the tip noticeable rotates after an hour of fishing (?too loose a fit?). I got this rod with a deep discount coupon so I'm happy. However, I don't think I'd do it at the over 1000.00 dollar price.
    • Cons: Poor finish, Runs in varnish
    • Describe Yourself: Avid Fisher
    • Pros: Accurate Casting, Good Tip Action, Sensitive, Smooth cast
    • Was this a gift?: No
