Default Re: one wt over another

I think if it is down it is the price of equipment. I an watching fly line go from $45. up to $65. and even $99. Upper end rods are going for over $700.
I don't know if it is because they are USA made or warranties. Warranties take a beating with people buying then deciding they don't want it so returning it or breaking it on purpose.
I know a gentlemen from another forum that has OWNED over 100 rods in a short period of time and that is because he buys it, tries it for a week then sends it back for refund. They can't sell it new anymore.
I was FF long before the movie, but I am sure it has a BIG impact.
I am noticing more people are building rods because of the rising prices.
