Default Re: Fiberglass rod

Wow, I've heard about these, and I'd love to check it out. Fiberglass rods are great for small stream trout, and any situation where slowing down your casting stroke will help with a more delicate presentation. I have a couple of Hardy glass rods, and it is almost impossible to put a line down hard with them. The only reservation I have is steelhead. You might be able to get away with it on the smaller, lower current PA fish. But I would hesitate to go with anything under 9' foot or at least a faster 7 weight. And faster is not a word in the glass vocabulary. I would save that rod for spring creeks and maybe some smallmouth fishing. I'd love to see a picture.
