I have an L-tech 8wt 9ft 2 pc rod.
i love it. casts great. Actually I was able to learn how to double haul with it.
Handled a very nice King salmon and few nice steelhead in michigan last season.
So, Yes, it is made in china. But for the price it beats the same St Croix at the same price point and the Sage at the same price point.
the warrentee is solid 25 year I believe and if they no longer make the model and you break the rod then you get the equivalent rod to replace. Only bad thing is if it on clearance then you get the clearance rod in return-but its the same rod so is it that big of a deal? To me no. Cuz I like the rod. I paired it up with the RLS4 reel and floating line and a spool for a sink tip line.
