Default Re: Rod Prices

In my opinion, fly-rod technology has improved so much that fly rods in the mid-price range perfom extremely well.

I have many top-of-the-line rods. This summer I lost one on a subway. I was crushed. Short of cash, I replaced it with a $300.00 dollar rod, which I soon fell in love with.

Two things though: Premium rods hold their resale value better, until the next generation comes out; and premium rods look better. I cast a great $200.00 rod, but to me the rod looked cheap so I didn't buy it. In the end, I still like a fly rod that looks good.
