just curious what your opinion is when shopping for a new rod:
- do you find fly rods generally too expensive?
- is location of the manufacturer important to you?
- would you try a new brand of rod, and if so, what would compel you to try a new brand?
- would you purchase a rod online?
- what is your number one complaint about fly rods in your experience?
I am thinking of buying a new rod, and generally find the prices very high, so am considering buying one online, maybe a brand I've never heard of. any info is appreciated!
I am also interested long term in getting into rod building...
do you feel there are a shortage of brand choices, or is the market flooded?
thanks for any info guys!
