Default Re: Scoop on LL Bean Fly Rods?

You will really like your quest rod. Did you buy the rod and reel combo?
The combo is very reasonable and feels great. I wasn't sure about the quest real, being composite, but it feels pretty good.

Speaking to their warrantee and relationship with their customers....
Last summer I was on a backwoods river and broke my 15 + yr old LLBean fly rod in a canoe accident. I live in Maine, and took it into the store. It was so old that customer service didn't even know what to do. They sent me up to see the guys in the fly shop, who looked at it, asked what happened, laughed and handed me a new quest 5 wt rod - no charge.
Since then, I bought an LLBean Stream light Ultra 3 wt combo. WOW what a great feel and touch to this one. A small trout feels like a lurker.
Good Luck with your rod this summer.
