Default Re: Scoop on LL Bean Fly Rods?

It looks like LL has gone to cast aluminum for their Quest reels instead of a composite material as in the recent past. That's a nice value for the money (although the best bang-for-your-buck in 3-5wt reels at an LL Bean store is the pocket water reel).

I really like my short, previous-generation, streamlight 4wt which I've since given to my fiance to try to hook her on fly-fishing. As others have said, LL Bean's warranty cannot be beat. Their rods seem pretty nice, but I don't hear much about the current LLs or Silver Ghosts, which are supposed to be their heritage and premium rod lines, respectively.

Does anyone have any experience with either of them?
