Re: The Diamondglass
I cannot agree with you more Doug. The D-glass is one of the finest fishing rods I have ever used. My personal fave of this series is the 8 foot 4 weight in the two piece. Though I have not had the fortune of fishing the five weight so maybe that is not an accurate statement. Grays sporting journal also gave the 8' 4wt their coveted choice award and dubbed it the perfect trout rod. And you are right, they are very nice to behold and the quality is fantastic. They cast like they are alive. The less you do with them the more they do by themselves. If the caster tries to take over they don't give up the goods as well. It is more a matter of putting the rod in the right place at the right time and then they are wonderful at what they do best. Glass is definately an understated beauty in the realm of flyfishing and the Dglasses are at the top with other makers like Steffen Bros., Winston, Scott, and Lamiglass.
