Re: George Anderson's "4-Weight Shootout"
I've been following shoot outs for many years now with rods and reels--first in the Flyfishing Amercia magazine and for the past few with George Anderson's and they are very useful but you do need to read the entire report to understand the many facts and facets being tested or not and how exactly did they test them. George's are pretty good if not the best as the aspects are many and varied that they do incorporate into their testing. Of course there are always a few that get away such as a shorter against a longer rod mentioned above. In short they give a lot of info about the rods tested and any one contemplating buying a rod can use that to advantage.
